we begin with storms. midwest dealing with widespread destruction after a power line of storms. forecasters say they've received at least 80 reports of tornados. sunday the storms killed six people in illinois. it is one of the state's deadliest tornados ever for this time of year. >> so far 12 states report storm damage this morning. over the last 24 hours the line of severe weather moved from the midwest to east coast. some of the worst damage is reported in washington illinois. deen reynolds is there. good morning.- >> reporter: good morning. the national weather service says the tornado that devastated neighborhoods like this one behind me was classified as the second post powerful kind of twist her and it left a trail of destruction from one side of the town to the other. >> oh my god. this thing is huge. >> as the string of powerful twisters tore across illinois sunday all some could do pray.
>> the violent weather system show nod mercy cutting a path of devastation across several communities. >> my husband came back. i said i don't know what to do. we stood in the hallway with no windows and held each other. it was that quick. >> in hard hit washington, a twister levelled entire neighborhoods in a matter of seconds. >> it kept coming, getting louder. we went in the basement. 10 seconds later, i felt the house shaking and waited about probably a minute. then i came back up you and saw what you're seeing here. >> john dempsey and his wife came to this shelter after losing their home of 44 years. >> i don't know what we'll do. we're just devastated. we have no clue what we're going to do. i'm sure we'll stay in the area probably. it's a wide area it's like a war zone. >> this is incredible. >> the line of twisters couldn't let up flipping rvs and gutting
homes a few miles away in peoria. >> i'm amazed we made it out of this. >> josh and his band mates were driving to a show and found themselves in the path. >> the trailer flipped and rolls. we stop and we're facing oncoming traffic. i can't believe we're still a live now. it was nuts. there's no reason for it. it's a miracle. >> cannon like many in the state is getting over the close brush with the twister. >> reporter: now back in the town of washington, the power is out, schools are closed, and the residents are advised to boil their water before drinking it. it's a mess here. >> all right dean thank you. the worst of the storms moved through during the bears game at chicago field. they stopped the game and told everyone to get under cover. >> go to the nearest covered
concourse area. everyone must leave their seats. >> the game was delayed two hours. when it resumed there was more rain. bears won in overtime five and a half hours after the opening kickoff. >> as the line of storms moved east, indiana took a beating. 12 counties are reporting significant damage from tornados or high winds. several were injured. kokomo, indiana is under a state of emergency. don is on the scene. good morning. >> reporter: good morning charlie, norah, viewers in the west. this is a town with about 60,000 an hour north. what was believed to be a tornado that cut through the community like a lawn mower sledding homesled sled -- mower shredding homes and businesses. no one was killed. the local police chief contributes that to advanced warning and people were able to take shelter.
we're beginning to hear survivor stories. people gathered in the starbucks in lebanon, indiana. that was hit by a tornado. they were trapped inside a while. no one was searsly injured. two hunkered down in a car in their garage. the whole building collapsed on them but they emerged uninjured from the battered vehicle. people are starting to wake up you and assess what it's going to take to rebuild. tens of thousands will be without power erpower. the governor is expected to tour the state later today to see the damage. >> don thank you. the storms caused more damage as they moved to north western ohio. tens of thousands of homes lost power. ed of our chicago station is watching the storm. >> it's not common to have storms in ohio in november. it's not unheard of. we had reports of more than 80
tornados, indiana, illinois kentucky as well. one storm moved through peoria and washington illinois. that damage at 11:05 in the morning moved through with the storm moving at about 55 miles per hour. this is the way it looked as it moveed into washington on radar this morning. quite a difference as we look at clear skies underway to a sunny cool day in that area. the storm has moved off east moving off the east coast now bringing behind it breezy conditions andle lecooler conditions. in chicago, breezy conditions with wind gust about 35 miles per hour. norah and charlie. >> thank you. investigators are looking for the source of carbon monoxide that killed miners sunday. two others were hospitalized from the accident southwest of denver. allel but four were treated but released. silver gold, sul fieds are mined
at the area. this may be too late for democratic lawmakers. many are feeling the fallouts from the health care troubles and forced to take cover. nancy cordes is on capitol hill. good morning. >> reporter: it's the combination of website problems cancelled plans and fears of rising insurance costs next year that creates problems for democrats and erases the political advantage and unity they gained after the government shutdown last month. the top house democrat nancy pelosi insisted sunday her party won't retreat from the president's biggest achievement. >> i don't think it's in trouble. we have to remain calm get through the website getting fixed, clarify representation about it. >> reporter: still there are signs democrats are nervous.
one day after president barack obama announced he would let insurers reinstate cancelled plans, one fifth of house democrats ignored the white house veto and joined house republicans to pass a bill to not just reinstate the plan but allow new plans to sign up for them. in west virginia nick was one of those. >> did you vote yes because you thought the president didn't go far enough? >> i voted yes. perhaps that was part of the reason. the main reason was i'm not sure he had the legal underpinning to do what we did. >> reporter: the insurance industry says the president's move has created confusion. many senators have said they will not go along with the president's so called fix. this commissioner was abruptly fired after he warned reinstating cancelled plans undercuts the purpose of the new health care exchanges by
creating exceptions to make it more difficult for them to operate. republicans are capitalizing persisting obama care's problems will grow between now and next november's election. >> i think there's going to be a taxpayer bailout needed to deal with the impact of this health care law. this is not what the american people wanted. the president did not need to destroy a good health care system. >> reporter: a group of senate democrats is considering it's own legislative fix. the group is primarily democrats facing re-election in 2014. it's not clear whether senate democratic leaders will let that move forward this week. >> interesting. thank you. the health care struggle gives ammunition to governors that say they know how to gain coverage.
scott walker survived the vote. in the new book walker says voters should look to the governor when looking to select the next president nominee. what can the president do to make this a successful piece of legislation? he said 80% of people signed up would be success. >> clearly that would fix the website, first and foremost. whether state or federal exchange exchange. >> what's the measure of success? >> i don't think there's a percentage. we have no coverage gap. we didn't do the medicare expansion. we were already covered in wisconsin. >> wisconsin is an alternative by the republican party in congress that would be appropriate? >> i think that's our ultimate goal. we can't relish frustrations people are having across america. the last thing republicans wanted to do is look like we're
at the edge of the cliff pushing obama care over the top. we need a market driven alternative. >> when? >> the sooner we can do that. in the states we're talking about that. there's a contrast between republicans being optimistic and state versus the federal government. >> republicans have lost the presidential vote in the past five of six elections. looking to win in 2014. you have said the next nominee has to come from outside of washington, has to be a governor. isn't it ruling out your good friend paul ryan? if there's a fan club for ryan, i would be the president of that. >> you don't want to be president? >>over all people in america are frustrated with everyone. the lack of getting things done.
in the book i contrast the fact in states where the optimism is you even mentioned presidential elections. after last year's presidential election, almost as many states with the republican legislative majorities. >> you had an outsider the last election. that didn't work. >> that is key leaders. it goes a long way towards governing. >> you spent last night with chris christie. >> my did. >> we saw the pictures of you and governor christie at the giants packers game. >> it would have been nice if aaron rogers was there. >> christie can appeal across the board. he's a guy. >> some of the people that look at you say he defined it. he had one governor in mind that happened to be the governor of
wisconsin. >> oh no. look at the difference. people see more optimistic more relative. all of those in the presidential election. iowa wisconsin with michigan ohio virginia were better run states. republicans are governors in those states. >> isn't it simplistic and really about policies and reform that you talk about that a lot of governors talk about in states. why not immigration reform. you have said you support a pathway to citizenship. do you think the next nominee for the republican party has to document the 11 million immigrants -- >> not the amnesty or immigration, they're talking about washington. what we talk about with the debate in washington is say dressing the symptom not the overall problem. that's the difference in what i see in the states and federal government. the bigger problem is we don't have the legal immigration system. >> temporary visas on a
pathway -- >> you've got to fix the front door before you talk about who came in. my ancestors came from germany. my brothers in law came from mexico. they came here from mexicos. we have immigrants and laws. we don't enforce the law for legal immigration on the front end. it would fix the other problems if we had an immigration system in the united states. >> we'll wait for statistics. >> thank you. unintimidated goes on sale tomorrow. a mile street. dow industrial hit 16,000 the first time. this thyme last year they were at 12600 points. stunning video this morning of the crash of the boeing 7-37. shows the plane in a nose dive as it slams into the run way. all 50 a board were killed in sunday's accident. the plane was on the second landing attempt on a flight from
moscow. both black boxes were recovered. the carrier went through recent problems. the 7-37 is the most popular airline jet in the world. more than a week after the typhoon devastated the philippines, we see the destruction up close taken by aid workers. the wall of water surges in. the roof is washed away. american military is pouring in aid from many residents still clammering to get out. it killed 4,000 and left 4 million homeless. the city of paris is gripped by a man hunt after a pair of shootings. someone fired hot statistics headquarters of one of the largest banks. gunfire wounded a photographer assistant at a daily newspaper in the french capital. police say another man claims he was carjacked at gunpoint.

in buffalo sunday. two fans were hurt when one fell out of the upper deck and landed on the other. video shows the first fan losing his balance along the railing at ross wilson stadium, the second fan suffered a head injury. they were both taken to the hospital. >> wow. welcome back to "cbs this morning." coming up in this half hour what led police to open fire on a minivan full of children and their mother. we'll show you the video from the police car's dash board camera. fbi insider john miller looks at the moments before and during a life and death decision. plus he admits smoking crack, but toronto mayor rob ford isn't hiding in shame. he spent sunday at a football game. see what he's saying now as he faces losing all power at city
hall. >> first an update on the deadly tornadoes in the midwest. those storms caused damage in at least a dozen states. the hardest hit, illinois where at least six people were killed one tornado cut a path through the central illinois town of washington. >> this morning, kokomo indiana, is under a state of emergency. officials are telling residents to stay off the streets. mike colombo of our st. louis affiliate is in new minden illinois, where two people are reported dead this morning. >> norah, charlie, good morning to you. it's a very beautiful sunrise over what is a very ugly scene here in new minden illinois. the two dead here are an 80-year-old man and his elderly sister. this morning as people wake up and begin to survey the damage they see their belongings scattered everywhere. this family's home had its walls ripped off by this storm. a storm that the national weather service says was an ef-4 tornado, with wind speeds at least 166 miles per hour. we've spoken with many people
here this morning who say they are just very fortunate to have survived, as they mourn the losses of those who didn't. norah, charlie, back to you. >> mike colombo in new minden illinois. two new mexico police officers are under investigation this morning after one opened fire on a minivan. a mother and her five children were inside. the shooting happened last month after a traffic stop turned into a high-speed chase outside of santa fe. bill whitaker looks at newly released video of the confrontation. >> you were doing 71 in a 55. >> reporter: 39-year-old mother of five arianna ferrell is pulled over for speeding by a new mexico state police officer just north of santa fe. the dash camera captures the encounter. >> turn the vehicle off for me. >> reporter: but ferrell drives off instead. the officer pursues and pulls her over again. emotions escalate. >> get out of the vehicle. get out of the vehicle right now. >> sir -- >> get out!
>> reporter: she didn't budge but her 14-year-old son jumps out. he retreats when the officer pulls out his taser. >> you're already facing evading charges right now. you ran away from me okay? >> reporter: finally she gets the. >> turn around and face your vehicle. then appears to ignore the officer and struggles to get & back inside. out comes her son again. this time he scuffles with the officers. he runs back to the car. the family is locked inside. the officer smashes the window with his baton. as ferrell drives off again -- another officer arrives, and fires at least three shots at the van. with the five children inside. after a ten-minute high-speed chase, ferrell finally stops. she and her son are arrested. in court the d.a. charged ferrell with five counts including child endangerment resisting arrest and reckless driving.
her son was charged with battery. ferrell's attorney said she was scared. the judge called this video disturbing and puzzling. the two officers involved are under investigation. in a statement new mexico state police chief says if the investigation determines that the officer improperly discharged his firearm in this case we will take swift action because improperly using a firearm isn't tolerated by the state police. for "cbs this morning," bill whitaker, los angeles. >> our senior correspondent john miller, the former fbi assistant director, good morning. >> good morning. >> so the judge says it's disturbing and puzzling. what do you say? >> i think there's a few built-in problems here. and let's go backwards. let's start with with the end, which is the gunfire. so, in many departments, it's against policy to fire at a moving vehicle. now the officer later said he was trying to shoot the tires out. the problem is when you're shooting at a moving car it's
inherently ineffective. it almost never stops a car. and it's also dangerous. if you -- you're firing in the direction of a car with five children, you're firing in the direction of two other officers who are in front of the car. so i think for police the biggest problem is going to be justifying the use of firearms in what is a traffic stop that's spinning out of control. >> seemed like a rather aggressive attitude though didn't it? >> well, let's sort this out, though. there's a few problems with the woman's actions here. she is a mom in a minivan with five kids. this is like the picture of a soccer mom. she's getting a speeding ticket and not for going 100 miles an hour. 71 in a 55. i don't know anybody who's not doing 70 in a 55 today. but, instead of she gets the summons, the cop wants her to pay it right there, or go back to court, and settle this now. and she drives off. so her first mistake is not dealing with it and dealing with the officer right there, but driving away. >> does that really warrant this kind of action? we have five children in the
car, shooting at a car. >> absolutely not. >> and taking a baton to the window? >> first we have -- when i say sort this out. she has caused the situation that she could have avoided from her action. then you get to the police officers. these are trained professionals. when he's smashing out that window with the baton, remembering this is a speeding ticket here. rather than lose control of this incident a trained officer is supposed to be slowing this down, not speeding it up. looking to say, all right, i've got five kids in the car, what's at stake here it's a speeding ticket? how do i de-escalate this? and one way to do that is to call for backup and get better control of the situation. yet, when they get there, it seems to have the opposite effect. so, i mean what you have is a case against a woman that's going to go nowhere in court. she's released on $10,000 unsecured bond. her son's been released. but you have a case against the state police on a civil side which has probably got some legs here. >> and there is a concept call of contributing negligence with the law. >> well charlie i don't have
your legal background but some police procedure standpoint you look at this tape and you're shaking your head and saying how could you take an incident like this and let it spin out of control? even when she flees, in this chase, she's not fleeing to get away from the police. she goes straight to a hotel. she's apparently looking for a populated area with people around, because at this point, she and her children are fearful of the officers. >> for going 71 in a 55. john miller, thank you. and toronto mayor rob ford is in for another rough day. city council members will vote on stripping what's left of his power, after ford admitted smoking crack cocaine and taking part in other illicit behavior. as elaine quijano shows us the mayor of the nation's fourth largest city sees no need to quit. >> reporter: toronto's now in23578ous mayor was mobbed by fans, chanting his name and posing for photos at a canadian league football game sunday. he showed up even though the
league commissioner said he was not welcome. and while many fans didn't mind toronto's city council has been far less tolerant of the mayor. today the council moves to strip ford of nearly all his power following his admission that he used crack. >> yes, i have smoked crack cocaine. >> reporter: the mayor said it was during a quote, drunken stupor. he's apologized but says he won't resign. >> i've admitted to using illegal drugs. in the last year. okay. i've admitted to drinking too much, okay. so i'm dealing with it. >> reporter: the mayor is also accused of drinking and driving. associating with prostitutes, and propositioning members of his staff, among other things. >> oh, no, no! >> i didn't push her. >> reporter: it's been a rough week for mayor ford. he's addressing the scandal on his new show "ford nation" which debuts tonight. in a preview the mayor suggests it's unfair to single him out. >> i'll do a drug test an alcohol test right now, and i
put a motion forward that every counselor do it too. >> reporter: mayor ford plans to challenge the city council's efforts to render him powerless and told fox news he believes voters are still on his side. >> and if the counselors want to strip all my powers. that's up to them. but the people haven't spoken yet. get off my driveway. >> reporter: ford is vowing to fight for re-election next year and says he's even interested in running for prime minister. for "cbs this morning" elaine quijano, new york. >> all right. and we saw prince harry training back in september. he learned how to survive in temperatures more than 30 degrees below zero. well now harry is about to take on the real thing. his mission for fellow soldiers and wounded warriors from around the world, that's next on "cbs this morning." w soldiers and wounded warriors around the world. that's next on "cbs this morning."

think about firing the general manager? >> my experience has been that the closer your top management is to the man that writes the check or the man that is the financial backbone of the team the better operation you have. >> to jones victory always is in grasp. he's a rare nfl owner who's had success as a player co-captain of the university of arkansas 1964 national championship team frank broils was the coach. and today at 71 jones still draws on lessons learned. >> our coach would have us hold up our hand when the fourth quarter started and put four fingers up and remind us that we're not pretty anymore out there. we don't feel good. our noses are bleeding in some cases. but this is the time to get it on. well, that same coach was one of the biggest caregivers that anyone has ever seen regarding
alzheimer's with his wife barbara. and i had a chance to talk to him. and i said coach, you still got us holding up those four fingers. and you're showing us some more, how to operate in the fourth quarter. and nobody's as pretty anymore, but we all got a really go when it comes time in the fourth quarter to be there. >> what does that mean to you? the fourth quarter. i mean even when you think about now, this is not easy times for you here in dallas. >> don't be surprised if you're maybe a little hurt. don't be surprised if you can't get to the corner fast enough. that shouldn't surprise you. it's the fourth quarter. you used upmost of that in the first three quarters but somebody's going to win this thing. and the one that wills it the one that understood how he got there and the one that understands what he's dealing with, he'll be the winner after the fourth quarter.
>> you're not going to give up. >> of course not. and as a matter of fact the stadium is a perfect example of the optimism that i not only have for the nfl, the future but the dallas cowboys. and by the way, i'm hell-bent to be a part of when we prayed into this thing with the super bowl trophy i want to be right there holding it up with everybody else. >> and that is very much jerry jones. he's an eternal optimist. he sees no obstacles. he believes he's going to get that lombardi trophy back as owner and general manager. and he's not going to leave until that happens. he's 71. he sees a long run in dallas. and he told me he hopes to be doing this charlie, norah, gayle, another 15 20 years. >> the son, the problem or the solution? >> that's the big question. and he of course believes that he is still the solution. the confidence that he has that he can build this team and run

between dick cheney's daughters or same-sex marriage. on sunday liz reiterated her works but mary cheney wrote that liz is on the wrong side of history.

last week domestic crude oil fell. prince al walideed bin talal. let's talk about shale oil, first what it means for the united states and then specifically for saudi arabia. if the u.s. is no longer dependent onto eastern oil and if saudi arabia finds itself needing to be in other businesses. >> yeah. no doubt that the shareholder production is increase not only in the united states but in some areas of the world. the united states will not only be oil sufficient in production but also to be potentially a net oil exporter. no doubt this will impact the political situation in our region because dependence on the united states is on oil. however, the relationship
between saudi arabia and u.s. it's somewhat wider than being dependent oil only. it began when president roosevelt met the king to establish itself in saudi arabia in 1945 on the ship "ss quincy" and established this long-term alliance. it's not based on oil only. >> that is true. there has been an alliance and a lot of is is because of u.s. dependence on eastern oil. but now u.s. is about to surpass russia and saudi arabia because of shale oil. think that changes the politics. if you look at it there are three points syria, egypt, and iran. how much has it strained relations with the u.s. in terms of this new deal that secretary kerry may be crafting with iran? >> no doubt the relationship when saudi arabia and u.s. is strained. >> it is strained. how strained? >> it is strained. however, mr. kerry's visit to
saudi arabia and meeting with king abdullah for two long hours, i think a lot of things were resolved at that point. yet, saudi arabia is very concerned. for example when president obama puts a red line whereby if syria crosses that redline by using chemical weapons, he would strike and then adjustment or change happens whereby a quid prokuo takes place where the weapons are given to the united states whereby they don't get hid. this was not working much in our region. >> when they didn't strike what did you think about that? >> it's not us only. it's the whole word. they saw world. they sate as a blinking. a big delegation visits egypt and other countries whereby they establish themselves again because, you know russia played
the big role between them and the united states and syria. >> the big question is iran and it's said that saudi arabia would like for someone to strike iran, its bitter enemy in the middle east. would it be helpful to the saudis if israel or the united states struck the iranian oil facilities? i'm sorry, oil facilities? >> i'm not sure. most of the countries in the region want iran to be struck by the united states or western powers. our objective is to have iran be nuclear means. if it were to be through peaceful means, that would be fine, but it's not. >> it is not? >> it's important to have the option on the table. >> but much talk is about the fact that the emirates and saudi arabia would like to see if it cannot be done peacefully be done militarily. >> and iran and israel. i mean that's the strange alliance.
>> exactly. israel and saudi arabia are on the same page with respect to iran. >> yes. but they let it sit on the table as last report. >> do you have catch dense that the united states would execute that? >> frankly speaking no we don't have confidence that the military strike would happen if they do not succumb to it. >> so you do not trust the united states. saudi arabia does not trust the united states. >> the whole trustish on united states is on shaking grounds. not just united states but europe also. you have the brazilian president sfloo does that mean the united states has lost influence in the world i wouldn't say lost influence but their influence is diminishing. >> can we talk to you about your position on women's rights? i was so excited to hear you're
supportive of women driving in saudi arabia. >> in a way, we are for women in the social community in saudi arabia a lot more than anyone else and clearly the issue of driving comes under that banner. so really we are for women rights in saudi arabia and driving comes under that situation. >> and i thaerd one of your favorite songs is "welcome to hotel -- ♪ ♪ >> hotel dubai. >> california. and you've been known to sing a time or two. let's hear. >> i was saying that in the united states. that song was very popular then. >> yes. would you like to do a lit snl that would be something different we haven't seen you do. >> you are one of the richest men in the world and you took an early investment in twitter that paid off for you, $600 million when it went publy. what's the next big company do,
