7:12 am
still affect millions along the eastern seaboard. at least 11 states on the coast are in danger of the floods. the weather channel anchor and managing editor sam champion is in seaside heights, new jersey, where a state of emergency is in effect. sam, i wish you had better news, but it's good to see you. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. the wind is still strong. the rain has picked up a little bit. and there is some good news in the fact that this hurricane will be a drive-by for most of these areas. the bad news is waiting for these people on the coast. 11 to 15-foot waves here. most of the night they've been taking heavy equipment and pushing the sand up to create these berms. in key areas just outside where the roads connect to the beach, so they don't get the direct flood water from the ocean pushing up here. we expect through sunday there will be extra water along the coastline. let me show you something else that's very important to these folks. this is the pier here in seaside heights. the iconic shot of the roller
7:13 am
coaster and ferris wheel going into the ocean after hurricane sandy in 2012. they spent a lot of time, effort, and money getting things back to normal here. they were very concerned to see a storm like joaquin pulling along the coastline, concern there might be more damage to this community. there is a high wind warning and a coastal flood warning all the way through sunday. >> thank you, sam. this morning many parts of the east are dealing with root in -- with flooding. delved beg inaudib david begnaud is in charleston. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. here in charleston, city government and schools are closed for the day and friday night football games are being rescheduled. as residents in this charming southern city are preparing for what the national weather service says may be potentially life-threatening flash flooding over the next 72 hours. we're on ashley street in the
7:14 am
historic section of charleston. it's closed. children's hospital is closed. other streets near the hospital are hospital. one woman died after her vehicle became stuck in floodwaters. in spartanburg, a car dealership had more than 50 vehicles damaged due to the weather. back here in charleston, city workers are racing to ready sandbags to hand out to residents who were concerned about the flood water reaching their homes. here's the bottom line. regardless of where hurricane joaquin goes, south carolina is dealing with a one-two punch. and it has to do with high tides and a system that started near the gulf of mexico and is moving toward this area that could bring an unprecedented rain event this weekend to the charleston area, over the next 48 to 72 hours. >> david, thank you so much. chief weather caster lonnie quinn is tracking this system. good morning, lonnie. >> good morning. the most recent information from
7:15 am
the national hurricane center shows joaquin has not lost any speed. it's moved to the northwest, slowly at 3. it's started that move to the north. we've shown a progressive push to the east. the most recent track from the national hurricane center continues that push, thankfully to the east. there will still be effects from the storm and there are still some models out there, i know the consensus is going offshore, but there are still some models that bring it onshore. so you've got to be on alert, especially around the southeastern portion of the u.s. south carolina, north carolina just going to get pounded with rain, could be record-setting rain. bitter rain out west as well but not a big deal. >> thank you, lonnie. si in afghanistan, jalalabad airfield, an american plane crashed and six contractors were
7:16 am
killed. >> reporter: the huge transport plane, a c-130 like this one, didn't clear the perimeter of jalalabad air base. six service men were killed along with five contractors. the taliban claimed they shot down the c-130, but the pentagon is saying there is simply no evidence of that. this crash comes in the same week as a major taliban offensive managed to capture the city of kunduz in northern afghanistan. u.s. special forces were called in there to help drive the taliban out. back in jalalabad, investigators are now looking at the wreckage of the plane, trying to figure out what it was that went wrong. charlie? >> thanks, elizabeth. a russian lawmaker says this morning that his country's air attacks in syria could last three or four months. russian war planes targeted
7:17 am
syria for the third straight day, attacking areas, they say, held by isis. holly williams is along the turkish/syrian border. >> reporter: good morning. russia says it's destroyed an isis training camp. but two days after launching strikes in syria, the u.s. has accused russia of indiscriminately bombing the syrian opposition. russia says its air strikes in syria will only intensify and could last four months. moscow joins the syrian civil war, claiming it would target isis. yet many of the russian air strikes so far have hit areas well outside of isis control. in northern syria, russian war planes have pounded groups linked to al qaeda. but also so-called moderate rebels who are supported by the u.s. this video, posted on the internet, appears to show the
7:18 am
aftermath of a russian strike on american-backed opposition fighters. syria's deadly civil war is now even more dangerous, with both the u.s. and russia launching air strikes but supporting different sides. this colonel is a rebel commander in syria's u.s.-backed opposition. the russians are occupiers, he told us, they're attacking anyone who is fighting anyone fighting the syrian regime. yet even as russian air strikes target u.s.-backed rebels, the colonel told us he's given up hope that america will intervene. "i don't think president obama is sincere," he told us. "the americans let us down and i don't trust them." u.s. and russian officials spoke yesterday in an effort to reduce the risk of an accidental
7:19 am
collision in syrian airspace. the russian president, vladimir putin, will meet in paris today with the leaders of france and germany, which have both called for russia to stop its strikes on syrian rebels. >> really interesting reporting, holly williams in turkey, thank you so much. concussions have taken the spotlight in football as a serious,,

welcome back to "cbs this morning." the oregon college shooting once again led the president to address gun violence. he says it is wrong for deadly shootings like this to become routine. >> as i said, a few months ago, and a few months before that, and each time we have a mass shooting, our thoughts and price are not enough. -- prayers are not enough. it's not enough. >> and according to the washington post, every week of his second time has seen a mass shooting somewhere in america. major garrett is at the white house.
7:31 am
he looks at how the president's responses have changed over the past few years. major, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. it is impossible to sum up all of president's emotional and intellectual reactions to what he now believes is an epidemic of mass gun violence on his watch. but we can begin with disbelievdis belie belief, compassion, and anger. >> we may never understand what leads anybody to terrorize their fellow human beings like this. such violence, such evil is senseless. it's beyond reason. >> reporter: mr. obama struggled after sandy hook with the enormity of loss and for the words to help the nation cope. >> i know there isn't a parent

7:33 am
now. >> reporter: and yesterday, the president identified a deeper, more complex dynamic behind the political paralysis. >> the reporting is routine. my response here at this podium ends up being routine. what's also routine is that somebody, somewhere, will comment and say, obama politicized this issue. well, this is something we should politicize. >> reporter: the or word the president used, "numb." he fears the nation has come to accept the unimaginable, has somehow found a way to take the shock and sadness in stride. for a presidency that began, at least in concept, around hope and change, the president finds very little of either. >> thanks, major. a fantastic report to understand the anger and depth of emotion in the president of the united
7:34 am
states. >> you could feel his frustration. a lot of people woke up this morning and asked that exact same question, how much longer, enough, enough, enough. >> it's become routine. that word "routine." >> that word scares me too. right now, other headlines. the washington reporpost report hackers at experion which processed t-mobile's correct applications. as many as 15 million people were affected. the data theft happened over the last two years. personal information, including social security numbers, is at p usa today reports on kevin mccarthy clarifying controversial comments. critics say he politicized the benghazi committee in congress by saying the purpose was to bring down hillary clinton's popularity numbers.

7:39 am
>> reporter: this is the shirt, which retails for about 80 bucks. the padding is here and here to protect the midsection. the haugens split the cost with schools 50/50, and so far have given out 3,000 shirts to schools in seven states. gayle? >> great news. >> you can imagine the pain they felt from losing a son. >> i'm glad they're bringing attention to this. i hadn't thought about that lack of protection around the waistline. >> i have a son playing football. where do i get that shirt? thank you, mark. remember the 10 and 2 they used to tell you about where to keep your hands on the wheel when driving? now the opposite is encouraged. and we understand you have a life, but we invite you to set your dvr, we'll be here until 9, living our best life. we'll be right back. back. s next.
