7:05 am
people are in the projected path of this monster storm. virginia joined four other states overnight declaring a state of emergency. there are coastal communities from florida including here in cocoa beach up through the carolinas that have been ordered to evacuate. mandatory evacuations. there are parts of the coastal carolinas that could see 15 inches of rain. devastating hurricane conditions continue on grand bahama island. this deadly storm had been essentially parked over the northern bahamas for nearly t days. imagine that. take a look at this picture. this is the runway at the grand bahama islands international airport. you can see it looks like an ocean. cbs this morning lead national correspondent david begnaud is here in cocoa beach. david? >> reporter: good morning. coa beh is under a mandatory evacuation order. i went for a run last night as crazy as it sounds and about 11:00 you could see it was a ghost town. nobody was out. businesses and homes for as far as the eye could see boarded up
7:06 am
with plywood and many people had sand bags in front of it. the real concern here is the water coming in as storm surge, defined as sea water being pushed by the wind inland and causing flooding. let's talk about the grand bahamas. the context of this is important. there are 700 islands in the bahamas. 30 of them are inhabitable. we are talking about two that have been ravaged by this hurricane so far the prime minister when we heard from him the last time said they are in the midst of an historic tragedy. >> this is what the aftermath of a category 5 hurricane looks like. dorian has ravaged portions of the bahamas with torrential rainfall and wind gusts of over 200 miles per hour. according to the red cross, an estimated 13,000 homes are damaged or destroyed in the bahamas, which is home to nearly 400,000 people. overwhelming storm surge has
7:07 am
swallowed entire neighborhoods. video shows water that is waist deep and much higher in some locations, stretching for miles across the abaco islands. >> the devastation is unprecedented, and extensive. >> reporter: the punishing conditions were amplified when the storm stalled directly over grand bahama. crawling across the island at just 1 mile per hour. >> our mission and focus now is search, rescue, and recovery. >> reporter: the life threatening conditions have strained search and rescue efforts as distress calls were pouring in. this woman told a local news station that her 8-year-old grandson drowned in the rising water. >> my grandson is dead. i just seen my grandson about two days ago. he tells me he loves me. >> reporter: the death toll is likely to climb. this photo was posted by a local newspaper showing bodies being loaded on back of a flat bed
7:08 am
truck. kevin tomlinson evacuated to a nearby shelter in grand bahama. we spoke with him overnight. >> you can feel the force and the pressure of the wind biting against the building repeatedly over and over, nonstop. but our hearts are still strong and the spirit of the bahamian people is still intact. we will rise from this occasion. >> reporter: there are reports of people who have so much water in their homes they've actually made a hole in the roof in order to get out. other reports that ocean water has gone into drinking wells and there is a need for clean drinking water. i spoke with chef jose andreas of world central kitchen. he and his team are in nassau right now. he said they have 3,000 meals so far ready to go. he is trying to see how he can get to the abaco islands or grand bahama to start feeding people. the bottom line is the bahamas are being ravaged by this monster that is literally just sitting, just sitting and spinning above them.
7:09 am
>> flattening the bahamas. david, thank you. hurricane dorian may be spinning in place but it is also widening. tropical storm force winds are reaching parts of florida. you can see it starting to rain here. of course some of the winds are in juneau beach and janet shamlian is there. about 100 miles south of us, janet? what are the conditions there? >> reporter: norah, good morning. it is a wet and windy one here on the beach. tropical storm force winds. in fact, gusts exceeding 60 miles an hour at this location within the past few hours. with that storm stalled a hundred miles off the coast this area is just waiting to see what dorian will do. this morning all palm beach county schools are closed through thursday. the airport is closed. at least three hospitals in the area have shut their doors, transferring their patients to other facilities. there is a mandatory evacuation order in effect. many people are heeding that. there are 11 shelters in palm beach county set up. 2600 people have gone to those
7:10 am
shelters as of this morning. officials are warning people not to let their guard down with the path of this storm still so uncertain. it is the end of a long holiday ekend but it sure doesn't feel like it on this stretch of the . stores, businesses, restaurants all closed. in fact, it's hard to find anything open. norah, i just want to show you and talk a little bit about the erosion here on the beach. we were here yesterday for cbs this morning and the surf and the high waves have just washed away so much of the sand. it's very dramatic, having seen it just a day before. norah? >> janet, thank you. it's hard to find anything open around here, too. you're right. officials do not want you to let your guard down. we'll have much more ahead on hurricane dorian from cocoa beach in our next hour. right now for more coverage let's go back to tony in new york. >> t you vy much. scary pictures. let's check the forecast with meteorologist megan glaros of our chicago station wbbm-tv. she is keeping an eye on
7:11 am
dorian's path. what do we know right now? >> already in the state of florida we're starting to see those rain bands. they've been going for a while but they'll continue wrapping in. the system as a whole, though, is still stationary. dorian has not moved. earlier probably 24 hours ago it was on the eastern edge of grand bahama island. now it's barely in toward the central portion. we have winds sustained to 120 miles per hour, so when and why does it make that turn to the north? here's what we've got going on essentially. it is something called a trough of low pressure. and that trough is right here. you can see it very clearly because it's that brown shaded area. what essentially that is going to do eventually is pick the storm up and begin to make that northerly motion with dorian. and that's when it will make its closest approach to the state of florida and then eventually to the carolinas, potentially virginia. so here is where we are by tuesday evening. this will be the closest approach as it gets to the florida coast line here. so by tonight, we're talking
7:12 am
about melbourne, fort pierce, areas around orlando, potentially in tropical storm force conditions with the core of those hurricane winds just offshore. now, the national hurricane center has been moving that track over and over, which is good news for the state of florida. in terms of a landfall. so let's take a look at that track and let you know exactly what i am seeing. the good news is, yes, it moves north. the bad news is parts of the u.s. mainland are still in the cone. you can see by wednesday this is wednesday in the morning it is still a cat 3, about even with cape canaveral. then accelerating on, off, a little closer into the carolinas here. what i think is going to happen is once it gets picked up by this trough it very quickly moves up to the north. because then it's in a moving system. right now it's essentially stationary because it's lost its steering currents. we can see that charleston, savannah, very close to that cone of error. we still anticipate it staying off the shore line of the carolinas but they're still in the cone so we'll continue to
7:13 am
track this. for the bahamas we just need it to start to move. anthony? >> thanks, megan. by our count more than 4 million people on florida's atlantic coast are under mandatory orders to evacuate. the reality is many of them will stay put despite dorian's threat. that worries emergency responders, of course. mark strassman spoke to people in st. augustine beach southeast of jacksonville. mark, how are they preparing for dorian? >> reporter: good morning. st. augustine beach has become ghost town, florida. gas stations, convenience stores, restaurants, all closed. more people will evacuate today. more but not all. >> probably end up losing a shed but at least it's not the house. >> reporter: chris allen almost lost his house three years ago. hurricane matthew flooded his neighborhood. he says more than a foot of water poured into his home. >> we lost everything. we were out of our house for over a year, just about a year. financially it killed us. >> reporter: allen is leaving for dorian.
7:14 am
st. augustine beach has a mandatory evacuation order. but other residents will ignore it. >> do you have a plan "b" or anything? >> sergeant krissie padgett is checking on vulnerable residents, senior citizens like 76-year-old holly bozen. she is nervy enough to stay put. >> i've never left before, see, and i'm not going to start. >> reporter: mandatory evacuation orders now apply to roughly 700,000 coastal floridians, age 65 and up. but no state law lets padgett enforce it. >> frustrating? >> yes. because they are in the most dangerous, the most likely to flood or high winds and everything like that. >> reporter: don't mention flads to chris allen. it's why he built this home made dam before leaving. >> matthew did not cut you a break. you're hoping dorian does. >> yes, absolutely. >> reporter: now with the churning surf here in st. augustine beach, the waves will probably get even bigger as the day goes on. here is what chris allen told us
7:15 am
about his experience with hurricane matthew. that is, had it not been for matthew he probably would have stayed put for dorian. what it also taught him about a hurricane is this. it can get you. anthony? >> mark strassman, thanks. you can get updates on hurricane dorian around the clock by using our cbs news and also find our streaming service more bodies were more bodies pulled from waters off the california coast. the u.s. coast guard assesses the death toll at least 25. nine people still unaccounted for. the coast guard is 30 miles from where the boat sank. what do we know? >> reporter: hours before the fire broke out three of the victim celebrated their birthday. one of them a teenager surrounded by her parents. one of the crewmembers managed to escape and had to leave his girl from behind.
7:16 am
most of the victims trapped inside the boat. of drowning. the boat conception was anchored just 20 yards off the channel islands near the ventura coast line when it caught fire. >> i can't breathe! >> reporter: according to the coast guard the first mayday call came in around 3:30 in the morning. >> are there people onboard the vessel and can't get off -- >> the coast guard launched vessels as well as boats and located a vessel fully engulfed in flames. >> reporter: the 75-foot vessel carried dozens of divers on a >> roger. you don't have any firefighting gear at all? >> reporter: when the fire began many were asleep in their bunks below deck. the blueprint shows stairs leading to the main deck at the front of the vessel. authorities say the company operating the boat had a good safety record. >> the crew was actually already awake and on the bridge and they jumped off. >> reporter: five crew members swam to a nearby fishing boat owned by bob and shirley hansen. >> the flames and knowing there are people onboard and cannot
7:17 am
get out. you can only imagine the horror they were going through. >> reporter: they pulled the crew members to safety including the ship's captain who told them a rear escape hatch was engulfed in fire and the crew could do nothing to help the passengers. one crew member was inconsolable telling them three passengers were celebrating birthdays including a 17-year-old there with her parents. >> he was crying because he knew they were still on the boat. >> then one of the crewmen, his girlfriend was also onboard and she was down there. >> reporter: for family members arriving at the harbor the reality of the tragedy still raw. >> do you know someone who may have been on that boat? >> my son. our son. >> reporter: and still so many people still in shock this morning. the ntsb and the fbi are headed to the scene to assist in the investigation looking into what caused this fire. officials tell us that boat is
7:18 am
unstable, upside down, submerged in about 60 feet of water which is complicating the effort to retrieve the bodies. >> all right, jonathan. thank you very much. we're learning that the gunman who went on a shooting rampage in west texas called police before and during the massacre. mireya villarreal reports on what invtigators are saying. >> he was on a long spiral of going down. he didn't wake up saturday morning and walk into his company and then it happened. >> reporter: authorities say both 36-year-old seth ator and his employer at an oil services company called police after ator was fired saturday morning but ator was gone by the time they arrived. >> was it hard to keep up with him and how quickly he was moving? >> absolutely it was. >> reporter: fbi special agent christopher combs says during ator's shooting rampage across midland county and odessa ator was also calling 911. >> he said he was the guy doing it. >> reporter: there were over 15 different crime scenes stretching over a ten-mile
7:19 am
radius. on average, combs says most active shooting incidents are over in about six minutes, but this incident lasted well over an hour. fbi agents raiding ator's property say it was strange and reflective of his mental state. what is it about this particular man that is unique and different about other active shooting situations besides just that he was mobile? >> you look at the ones we've already had this year, it's very similar in nature. >> reporter: what are those characteristics? >> i think the most important characteristics where people can help us is this spiraling downward path that these good morning to you. it's a great start to the day. a cloudy foggy start along the coast and in some of the in the locations as well. temperatures a little bit cooler compared to yesterday but your average if not a couple of degrees above average. 92 in concord. 85 san jose. 76 oakland.

it's it's 7:30. here's what's happening on "cbs this morning." hurricane dorian sits still, rashing the bahamas, while the florida coast waits for the storm to move closer. some people are staying home despite mandatory evacuation orders. >> plan for the worst case scenario. >> rescuers search for the remaining victims of a deadly boat fire in california as investigators try to learn how the horror began. >> one of those things you can't unsee. >> the fbi and police say the gunman called several times before his rampage left seven dead. >> he was on a long spiral of going down. >> plus, how parents can help

7:32 am
into south carolina. but over the bahamas, that will be the biggest story in terms of devastation. this is a 36-hour loop of the storm. it's essentially not moved at all and is still sitting over grand bahama island lashing them with the eyewall of the storm. just to put it into perspective a bit, we know harvey created so much damage it was fresh water flooding from all that rain. it sat for days and days over the houston area as a category 1. maria on the other hand made landfall as a strong category 4 but quickly moved past the island of puerto rico. this is the worst of both because it's not moving and it's essentially a very strong storm. we do know, though, the hurricane hunter aircraft are out in the storm getting the latest information as we speak. they'll feed that all into the models so we get a good idea of what is happening from this point forward. >> thank you. you mentioned the hurricane hunters. much of what we know about dorian comes from those hurricane hunters who track storms from the sky. errol barnett was aboard a u.s.
7:33 am
air force plane that flew right into the eye of the hurricane. he is now at the airforce base in biloxi, mississippi. errol, better you than me. sounds like a dangerous mission. good morning. >> reporter: well, tony, it sounds dangerous because it is. the aircraft that went into dorian before us had to return to base because of a mechanical issue. let me show you what we're dealing with here. the military folks will recognize these aircraft as hercules c-130s but they've been modified. they are wc-130js so they can take on hurricanes. one of the modifications the external fuel tank, one of two, that allows the aircraft to stay in the air for up to 14 hours making for one truly epic flight. as the 53rd weather reconnaissance squadron begins their ascent -- >> the center of the storm and this is our entry point. >> reporter: -- the menacing target of their mission, hurricane dorian, threatens 25 million people in its projected path. about 10,000 feet in the sky,
7:34 am
chief piemt lieutenant colonel jeff ragusa and his crew are collecting data to assess the storm's impact around the clock. how is what we're doing over the bahamas now helping people in florida and georgia in the days ahead? >> knowing what it is doing now is going to be the information they need to know where it's going to be. >> reporter: the crew drops gps sensors like these while flying directly through the hurrane's eye to its edge and back again as many as four times. they gather information about the storm's speed, direction, and winds. you take a look at this radar behind me. you can see we are in the eyewall of hurricane dorian. you can feel the turbulence increase. the light is diminishing. it really gives you a sense of just how unstable the middle of these massive storms can be. up here the scenery can change within moments from the gray and choppy eyewall to the storm's

eerily bright and sur reaserene. on the ground winds are ravaging the bahamas. dorian's next target, the united states. >> going to start basically hugging the whole eastern coast line of the united states up until north carolina so this is, as far as people being prepared, just because it is not making landfall doesn't mean you are in less danger. >> reporter: as we left the bahamas, we caught sight of this sunset over florida, a reminder that even nature's beauty can betray approaching danger. and one of those dangers includes thunderstorms and lightning. take a look at this video shot onboard one of these hurricane hunter planes on sunday. the cockpit lit up with this bright, purple light because of thunderstorms taking place around it. these are the only aircraft in the world permitted to fly through storms like this. there are 12 of them. most other aircraft have to stay 10 to 20 miles away.

beto o'rourke was also there, and the money, the proceeds from this concert and from some of the t-shirts sold there will go to el paso community foundation. they have established an el paso victims relief fund, a ver good cause among other things. they will provide scholarships for the victims of some of these children, whether they were shot and hurt those who were killed. >> good that he went back. the money is nice, bualso just having a good time out is nice. >> former chicago bears star charles peanut tillman also raised money for charity. he over came his fear of open water to row 65 miles across lake michigan with his rowing partner, jacob beckley, to raise money for pediatric cancer research. that boat you see them in, they actually built from scratch. 65 miles they rode, over 24 hours. as peanut tillman said that's 1144 football fields.
8:33 am
they raised about $100,000 for their foundation. it was inspired in part by tillman's daughter, tina, who received a heart transplant 11 years ago. the really cool part is tina was there to see her father row into chicago, and she said she was amazed. >> that's a beautiful thing. i want to go back to he's afraid of the nfl. i don't know if you can play in the nfl and be courageous enough to take those hits. >> he trained for a long time to do it. >> thank you. philadelphia's top prosecutor is considered a national role model for criminal justice reform, despite criticism of his progressive agenda. district attorney larry krasner made it a priority to investigate problematic convictions when he took office last year. and just 19 months, 9 people, some serving life sentences, have been exonerated. he also fired 31 people to clean up the d.a.'s office. national correspondent jericka
8:34 am
duncan talked to him about reforming the culture, and she also met three men who were recently exonerated. what was it like hearing their story snz. >> it was very powerful. i spoke with three memwho together spent nearly 74 years in prison for crimes they say they did not commit. in some cases, prosecutors or police knew the entire time that they were innocent and did nothing. well, now a progressive district attorney ishaing that. and as we learned, those who are benefitting from those changes are in disbelief that they're finally free. >> i spent 27 years 11 months in prison. >> i did 21 years, 5 months, 5 days. >> i spent approximately 24 years in prison. >> before the night was over, i was charged with murder. >> chester. >> i was a juvenile lifer. >> terrance lewis. >> and johnny berry have always maintained their innocence, and now the court system agrees. overturning their convictions for second degree murder,
8:35 am
robbery, and conspiracy. all of them now in their 40s have been exonerated. >> physically, i'm free, but like, there's a lot of emotional things that i'm dealing with. i'm trying to find myself. >> in july, a judge freed chester holman after prosecutors reopened his case and proved he was innocent of the 1993 murder for which he was serving life in prison. authorities always had evidence that pointed to other suspects, but that evidence was not disclosed at the time of his conviction. >> each day, i have gotten stronger and i'm better. >> johnny, what has this been like for you? >> well, today marks the one-year anniversary of me being home. >> wow. >> i'm still learning how to be free, to be honest with you. it's a learning process. >> personally, i haven't been home not even 90 days. although i have been happy and i'm grateful, it's defitely been difficult. i have been enslaved mentally and as well as physically. i'm still traumatized. this fell upon us.
8:36 am
they uprooted us. when i say they, meaning the system as a whole. >> we really have to do it with statistics. >> philadelphia's district attorney, larry krasner, wants to correct the wrongs. >> the oath is to seek justice. when somebody sits in a jail cell for a crime they did not commit, that's an injustice. >> the former public defender assumed the top prosecutor job in 2018. one of his first missions, beef up the convict integrity unit to investigate legitimate claims of wrongful convictions. >> there was a culture of win at all cost. if that meant you were going to take the document that suggested there was a different suspect, a document that the constitution requires you to turn over to the defense and you were going to shred it, you did. then there was a separate issue with certain detectives. and everybody who was in the system knew about it. >> and in his first week in office, he fired 31 employees. >> i did not enjoy it, but it was necessary to do, especially as i see these exonerations
8:37 am
happen, and guess who's names keep coming up for having been involved in convictions of innocent people. >> the people you let go. >> yeah. that story will be developing. stay tuned. >> what do you say about the ex-prosecutors who still believe that the people who have been exonerated are guilty? >> i don't think this is the realm of belief. i this happen we should be working with facts. the system will always make mistakes. but the kind of prosecutor who is willing to do these things that are illegal and unconstitutional in order to have a win is the kind of prosecutor who is going to say to you, i still believe they're guilty because they're covering their own tracks. >> the straight shooter also says he's determined not to waste court time. jail space, or tax dollars on prosecuting low-level offenses like marijuana possession or petty theft. but when it comes to those issues, krasner's critics say he's releasing criminals that are likely to commit another crime. for judges who think or have said you have gone rogue and
8:38 am
that you're a group of renegades, how do you respond to that? >> first of all, i have huge respect for the judiciary. there's a small portion among them who i think take this personally. when we say what we say, and we're very direct about it, that these policies and the people who were in the d.a.'s office caused mass incarceration. >> as for the conviction integrity unit, it's reviewed about 200 cases since krasner took office. >> conviction integrity is a sticky situation because you're looking back on things that happened in the past and sometimes you're asking the same judge who has already said no to overturning this conviction to overturn it now. >> 87 days ago, i was condemned to die in jail. >> johnny, you okay? >> i'm all right. there are people still remain behind the walls that are actually innocent. when you're innocent and you run across another individual that's innocent --
8:39 am
>> your soul connects. >> it's a kwekz. these are my brothers and i still have brothers who remain behind the wall and it hurts. >> while it does hurt, the men say they're not angry. district attorney krasner told us the conviction integrity unit actually rejects most of the cases it investigates. they have overturned about 4% of the cases. he campaigned on this, got 75% of the vote, and said he wanted to put more resources into this because you look at a system like the criminal justi system not just in philadelphia but across the country and it's broken. >> part of justice is correcting injustice. the wrong person is behind bars, do something about it. it's a wonderful program. >> an impressive program. >> let's hope more d.a.s do it across the country. >> you can hear more of the conversation with larry krasner on the "cbs this morning" podcast. you can listen wherever you like to get your podcast. >> next, how parents can help children become better readers.

planet to -- to -- >> rubble. >> good. that's very good, sweetie. >> that's actress goldie hawn in the 1987 film "overboard," proving it doesn't matter what you read with your kids as long as you are reading. a survey found 20% of kids age 6 to 17 did not read any books at all during the summer of 2018. that percentage has been growing, in 2016 it was 15%. now there's a new effort to help parents install a love of reading in their kids. a book out today is called "how to raise a reader." it shows the benefits of reading at every stage of it a child's development from newborns to teenagers. pamela paul co-wrote the book. she's also the editor of "the new york times" book review. welcome. thanks for being here. >> thanks for having me. >> you say if you want to raise a reader, be a reader. >> yeah. it starts with you. i mean, if you're sitting there saying to your kid, read a book, while you're on your phone scrolling, you're sending a mixed message. it's important that reading be
8:45 am
seen as something that's part of the family culture. that your kids see you reading, see you choosing to read, as opposed to just watching tv or going on the iphone or whatever else. and that reading becomes something that's part of what your family does. >> at what point do you -- how hard do you push back against the "i don't want to, i don't like it, i don't feel like it, i'm bored"? >> that's the most important thing really. that your school is in charge of teaching your child how to read. what your job is as a parent is teaching your child, showing them how to love to read. so for every kid who says he doesn't like reading or he thinks it's boring, he probably just hasn't found the right book. >> that's actually one of the best parts of your book is that guide to -- you go to the bookstore, and there's an infinite selection. you have like five or six at the end of each chapter for age-appropriate reading for boys, girls, adventurers, all different types. that's a great tip. >> to start reading by the time they get to preschool or kindergartens, it's too late,
8:46 am
right? they should begin as newborns actually. you can start at least reading to them and getting them to feel -- there's toys now that are like books, like made out of fabric with velcro, and they can start getting the feel for what a book is. >> yeah. it's good because they can't eat those books. they can't tear them to shreds. but yeah, it's really important even when your child is an infant to read aloud to them. they're absorbing that. it forges an emotional connection. you take your baby, you put him in your arms, you hold him, you read aloud it him. he might not understand a single word, but he's feeling that connection, that's becoming part of a ritual. and it gets you in the habit, too, as a parent of sharing books with your child. >> this is really critical for kids. i mean, my wife's a literary specialist. we talk about this a lot. she says, if you don't get your kids to read at grade level by third grade, there's a risk they may not graduate high school. before that you're learning to read, after that you're reading to learn. >> yeah. >> you're actually really helping your kids here. >> you are. the thing is that, you know, kids will learn to read
8:47 am
eventually. and that's on the school. you can do a lot to support that. but what's really important in the home is that books become something that's a source of pleasure because kids are feeling all of that pressure at school. >> yeah. >> they're anxious. parents are anxious about it. like, oh, no, my child is two levels lower than his friend in first grade. actually, you know, up to a certain point really it's not about how fast or how soon you learn to read, it's about creating a habit of reading and finding pleasure in that. kids have so many choices of what to do in their free time, right. you have that statistic like they can play video games, they can go on line, they can watch tv, they can be outside, they can -- they have so many planned activities. so they have to want to read to choose to do so. >> i was going to ask about the technology. how do you compete with that when they are just glued to their phones? and the other part of the question is, is it valid to have them read books on line? >> well, it's not terrible.
8:48 am
reading is reading. but it is -- there is data that shows, there's research that shows that kids absorb and retain information better when it's read in print. and what's really interesting, and this is a good sign, is that kids prefer to read print books. even teenagers. it's like they're on screens all the time, so they're just like us. they want a break from that. >> you should outfit your book with a little bell that goes off every now and then reminding people it's there. maybe it vibrates on the table. pick me up. i am a protestant bo-- i am a print book. >> "how to raise a reader" is on sale now. we're seeing the first video of two tiny panda twins who were just born in a german zoo. ahead, how mom is getting special help to raise the cubs. maybe she's reading to them. you're watching "cbs this morning." we are here to discuss jessie's online time.

before we go, newborn twins are making history in germany. let me explain. a panda at the berlin zoo gave birth to two cubs on saturday. the tiny pink twins are the first giant pandas born in germany. right now they're only about the size of a person's hand. one of the cubs squealed and wiggled while new mom meng meng picked it up with her mouth. she then cradled her new baby and gave it a bath with her tongue as panda moms do. normally when a panda gives birth to twins, she only raises one of the cubs. so meng meng will get help from zoo staff to raise both of them. the zoo says mom and babies are healthy and doing well. >> they're adorable. >> so small. >> very sweet. >> so cute. >> nothing giant about those pandas yet. >> not yet. watch out, though. >> give it time. all right. that does it for us. be sure to tune in to "cbs evening news." donnell will be in florida
