amazing video from madeira, california. it shows a large sinkhole opening up in the middle of a roadway. this tigers fan caught five foul balls. >> how do you do that? terrifying moments for a man fishing with his daughter on a louisiana lake. >> all that matters. >> at some point you have to let them go, let them lead their own lives. >> what was it like when they brought a boyfriend home for the first time. >> we have a trooper that sits in the car with a gun. >> on "cbs this morning." >> trump acknowledged that his children, ivanka and eric missed the deadline to register and they won't be able to vote in the upcoming primary. >> all your family does is put your name on things. you couldn't find five minutes. >> you just lost two votes, ted cruz. >> this morning's "eye opener" is presented by toyota, let's go places.
7:03 am
welcome to "cbs this morning," gayle king is off. anna jacobson of cbs sports network is with us. millions of americans across the south face a new round of potentially dangerous weather. huge, violent hail hammered parts of north texas on monday. the storm seriously damaged homes and businesses. >> that destructive system is sweeping through the gulf states. it could bring thunderstorms and even tornadoes. omar svillafranca is in hard-hi texas. >> cleanup continues this morning after hail peppered this home behind me, shattering windows and leaving a long path of destruction in texas. punishing everything in its path, a ferocious storm system pounded north texas monday.
7:04 am
torrential hail and wind near 70 miles per hour. prompted tornado warnings and pummeled homes and businesses as more than 10,000 people lost power. >> why? why is this happening? why? >> it's just incredible. i've never been through anything like this before. >> here in wiley you could hear the glass shattering as massive hail stones pierce through the windows of this home. no one inside was hurt. emergency services were so overwhelmed people were told to call 911 only if they faced a life-threatening situation. >> just looking at the damage just kind of going -- where do i begin? >> reporter: parts of tim taylor's homes are ripped to shreds. >> that's more glass falling. >> reporter: the widespread and violent system produced baseball-size hail, tore through cars and even sparked this fire in arkansas. in texarkana, arkansas, strong
7:05 am
winds sent trees crashing into homes. >> when i heard the boom, i ducked and looked up and there was a tree in my house. >> reporter: bill story and his wife barely escaped injury. >> i heard hail and i said, oh, lord just protect us from those trees. i didn't start praying soon enough. >> reporter: no major injuries were reported but the schools here in wiley did take a beating. classes were canceled today for students so crews could start the cleanup process. >> omar, thank you. always good to hear no injuries. top health officials in the united states are sounding an urgent new alarm about the spread of the zika virus in this country. >> everything we look at with this virus seems to be a bit scarier than we initially thought. while we absolutely hope we don't see widespread local transmission in the continental u.s., we need the states to be ready for that. >> 30 states are now projected to get the type of mosquito that spreads the zika virus by summer.
7:06 am
that's up from an earlier estimate of just 12 states. our chief medical correspondent is here to explain why the threat is considered more severe, john, good morning. >> good morning. >> why is it considered more severe? >> this is a nasty virus. every time we look at it, every week we seem to learn something new. there was a recent study from brazil, 29% of brazilian women who had the virus ended up having abnormal fetal ultraso d ultrasounds. it occurred anytime during pregnancy, not just the first trimester. >> why is it scarier here in the u.s.? >> we think it was in 12 states, now it's about 30 states. the fear is right now, the zika virus is not in mosquitos in the united states. anybody here who has it has brought it in from somewhere else. fear is eventually somebody will come here infected and a mosquito that's not infected will bite that person, pick up the virus and you'll have local transmission. >> summer is coming. we'll have a lot more mosquitos out there.
7:07 am
we know the dangerous effects for unborn children, pregnant women. what about men and women, others, adults, children? >> it is mainly a problem for pregnant women. however, we're finding it it can affect neurological tissue anywhere. there's guillain-barre syndrome. there's also other symptoms. it's rare in adults. >> not just the microcephaly. >> no, abnormally small brains and heads and that can lead to developmental problems. >> when we talked about ebola a few years ago, we're roa worriet it's not going to spread. don't panic. where are we with this? >> i am more concerned about the problem here in the united states than i was about ebola. because there are no symptoms. 80% of people are asymptomatic. you have areas in the united
7:08 am
states, poor areas in the south where it looks kind of like brazil, you have broken windows, free-standing water and a doctor from baylor says we have to clean these areas up. the first day a mosquito in the united states is fond to be infected with zika virus, a lot of women are going to be worried. >> this comes as the white house is asking for a lot of money from congress. thank you very much. hillary clinton faces backlash because new york city's mayor told an off-colored joke. the two of them were on the stage at a fund-raiser. the joke using an african-american stereotype fell flat. the "new york daily news" calls it skit for brains. nancy cordes is in washington tracking the fallout, ahead of the new york primary. good morning. >> good morning. today actually marks the one-year anniversary of clinton's campaign but this is probably not how she planned to be celebrating. working overtime to fend off a
7:09 am
challenger in the state she represented and getting attention for a racially charged joke that some found offensive. >> my home girl, hillary. >> oh! >> the skit at a political dinner new york starred clinton, new york mayor bill de blasio and leslie odom jr., one of the stars of "hamilton." >> thanks for the endorsement, bill. took you long enough. >> this was the part that made waves. >> sorry, hillary, i was running on cp time. >> that's not -- i don't like jokes like that, bill. >> reporter: cp time is shorthand for colored people time. slang, some african-americans use for being late. clinton joked that it stood for something else. >> cautious politician time. i've been there. >> reporter: the skit was panned as awkward, painful and cringe
7:10 am
worthy but de blasio whose wife is black said it was meant to mock him, no one else. >> it was clearly a staged show. it was a scripted show. every actor involved, including hillary clinton and leslie odom jr. thought it was a joke on a different convention. that was the whole idea. >> reporter: the clinton campaign says it agrees with the mayor but other than that, the campaign has had no comment. it is not all bad news for clinton on her one-year anniversary. two new polls in new york show her leading sanders, one by 12 points, the other by 14. >> thank you, nancy. donald trump is still venting about the republican nominating rules the gop front-runner called it, quote, a dirty system. and he said a party convention in colorado this weekend was fixed. colorado republican senator cory gardner has heard enough. in a series of tweets last night he said, quote, how on earth are you going to defeat isis or ball and the national budget if you
7:11 am
can't figure out the colorado gop convention? elections are won by those who show up. major garrett is in washington with the latest on the fight between trump and his party. good morning. >> here's the interesting part. trump's diatribes don't match what they said before the convention, that trump would be shut out. trump's temper will not be cooled. >> a system, folks, is rigged. it's a rigged, disgusting, dirty system. >> reporter: in albany monday, donald trump continued to rail against the gop nomination process where the rules have been set since november. >> i find out i get less delegates than this guy that got his ass kicked, okay? give me a break. >> reporter: trump complained about colorado where ted cruz organizers swamped the state's convention handily winning all of the state's 34 pledged delegates. >> you saw what's happened in colorado. it's one of the big things.
7:12 am
it's a fix. >> reporter: despite trump's complaints, some party rules have helped him. trump has won 37% of all votes cast to date but has been awarded 36% of the delegates. in south carolina trump won 33% of the vote but pocketed 100% of the state's 50 delegates. >> he yells and screams and stamps his foot. >> cruz called trump a sore loser, a charge trump backers privately fear will stick. >> donald, 65,000 people voted in the state of colorado. they just didn't vote for you, they voted for our campaign. >> cruz has largely given up on new york state and for good reason. the latest poll his him more than 30 points behind trump. cruz will focus on primaries in may and the biggest remaining prize of all, california's 172 delegates. cruz's strategy of denying trump the nomination hinges on doing well in the june 7th primary. >> major, thank you.
7:13 am
john heilemann is managing editor of bloomberg politics. good morning. >> hi! how are we doing? >> anything to talk about. >> show of hands, how many people at the table are tired of listening to arguments about delegate allocation rules. put your hands up. two more months of this, guys, it's going to be great. >> trump talking about a dirty rigged system. >> what's the point? >> this is a year when in both parties, vast parts of the bases, democrat and republican believes comprehensively the system is rigged and so donald trump is tapping in or trying to tap in again to the populous kind of energy that's fueled his cam pane all along. i think all the complaints about it, the responsibles he should figure it out, his campaign should be better, they're all 100% right. this talking point is not a bad one politically speaking. >> what is the smart money saying about whether he will get enough delegates before the convention opens. >> i think the smart money is split on that question. he's got a really favorable calendar going forward.
7:14 am
he's going to maybe get all the delegates here in new york or an awful lot of them. rhode island, connecticut, maryland, pennsylvania, these are all places he's likely to win. the question is whether he wins enough and by enough to get enough delegates. there's california, new jersey, again, two states where he'll do very well. it's a favorable calendar. he has to get close to 60% of the pledged delegates at stake which is a pretty high hurdle. it's going to be close. one thing that's true is that trump and everyone around trump including all these new people, paul maniford and the other people he's brought in, they recognize they have got to get to 1,237. if they don't have it, it will be hard on multiple ballots for trump. the premium is placed on getting this thing done by june 7th. >> what role does john kasich play in all this? >> he's the strange character who's only won one state. hasn't picked up delegates in a significant way since then yet continues to hang around, in some respects making it easier
7:15 am
for trump by creating a three-person race and splitting the opposition. kasich's theory is no one is going to get to 1,237, including donald trump or ted cruz. in a contested convention scenario, anything can happen. the party will look for electability and consensus person who ran in the race, unlike a white knight and runs the risk of being dismissed as illegitimate. kasich can say i competed all the way through. i can bring the party together in my home state of ohio. >> we saw on the democratic side, the off-colored joke told by bill de blasio. >> off-colored things people generally don't find funny. >> and are not good ideas. >> always a good rule of them when using a public speech. >> will we see impact on hillary clinton because of that? >> no. >> just a talking point for us? >> it's one of those things everybody will make hay of for 24 hours and when the voting comes next tuesday, no one will
7:16 am
go into the voting been and say i'm not going to vote for hillary clinton because bill de blasio made a dumb joke. >> thank you, john. we'll ask john kasich how he intends to be the republican nominee. the hopeful will be in studio 57. that's ahead. >> are you going to stick around to see john kasich. >> yes. >> love that man. police in brussels, belgium detained three more suspects connected to the paris terror attacks. two other suspects face charges in last month's attack in brussels. they are linked to an apartment used as a hideout. we have a new image this morning of accused paris attacker salah abdeslam. this leaked photo shows him inside a belgian prison. new video is raising questions about events leading up to the apparent road rage killing of former saints player will smith. the new orleans fox affiliate says surveillance video it obtained appears to show a hit
7:17 am
and run minutes before a deadly shooting. manuel, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. hours after police arrested cardell hayes for second degree murder, his attorney insisted there was more to the story. he says before the shooting which happened near where this memorial now stands, his client was the victim of a hit and run involving his hummer. >> this surveillance video obtained by new orleans fox 8 appears to show a hummer at a red light followed by a mercedes suv. "cbs this morning" has not been able to independently confirm the tape. the vehicles seem to match the make of the hummer driven by cardell hayes and mercedes driven by will smith, the night of the shooting. the mercedes appears to possibly tap the vehicle from behind. moments later, the hummer pulls to the side of the road and the driver of the suv speeds away. the hummer then follows.
7:18 am
>> this was not some situation where my client hunted down mr. smith. >> it's still unclear exactly what led up to the deadly confrontation. police say cardell hayes' hummer rear-ended smith's mercedes which then collided with another vehicle, a chevy impala. the two men exited and exchanged words. as smith walked away, he was shot multiple times in the back and right torso. smith's body was found slumped over the steering wheel with his foot on the ground. at some point smith's wife had gotten out of the car and was somewhere near the driver's side when she was struck in the leg. cell phone video from that night captured smith's wife crying out. an unknown witness is heard talking about another gun though he didn't mention anyone by name. >> get out of here. i have a fun. he says [ bleep ] i have one,
7:19 am
too. >> john fuller suggested there was a second gun at the scene, though he didn't say whether the weapon was in smith's car. >> it will be safe to say that not only did my client feel threatened but citizens out there on the block felt threatened as well. >> reporter: this memorial continues to grow. the new orleans police department has announced it plans to file a second charge against hayes for allegedly shooting smith's wife. the saints organization is planning a tribute to smith on friday. >> that's a terrible story, manuel, thank you so much. a tragic discovery after a seattle area mom didn't come home. ahead, the investigation that led c1 welcome back to the bay area this morning where we're starting out with mostly cloudy skies. the next chance of rain coming in this week, and we have rain coming in early thursday morning. between now and then, partly cloudy skies and 52 in the city and 66 at livermore and 67 for

8:01 am
planned to be celebrating her one-year anniversary of announcing running for president. kasiching a theory is no one is going to get to 1,237 and in a contested convention scenario, anything can happen. >> most said they believe in these products but some said when they look back at the fees they paid, they're not sure they made any money at all. about half say they still support trump. they want to see what happens when a head-on collision happens here. and what that collision does to the person sitting in the driver's seat. and the people back here. first time ever, there are now more overweight people in the world than underweight people. yeah, the study was conducted by simply looking around. >> this morning's "eye opener at 8" is presented by liberty mutual insurance. >> i'm charlie rose with norah

o'donnell and dana jacobson of cbs spet sports network. gayle king is off. a violent system pounded north texas with massive hail on monday, torrential winds nearly 70 miles an hour prompted tornado warnings and slammed homes and businesses. >> more than 10,000 people lost power, emergency responders got to overwhelmed that people were told to call 911 only if they faced a life-threatening situation. the large system could deliver damaging thunderstorms and even tornadoes today to several states along the gulf coast. vice president joe biden was asked on monday if it was sexist for bernie sanders to question hillary clinton's qualifications. biden said no, then said both candidates are qualified to be president. his stafrs then tried to stop the interview as the reporter asked about electing a female president. >> this country's ready for a woman. there's no problem. we're going to be able to elect a woman in this country. >> would you like to see us
8:03 am
elect a woman. >> i'd like to see a woman elected. >> that's it. >> no, no, that's all right. i don't mind. >> i'd like to ask one more question. >> the president and i are not going to endorse because we both when we ran said, let the party decide. gosh almighty, they're both qualified. hillary is overwhelmingly qualified to be president. >> a biden aide said they stepped in because the interview ran too long, not because of the questioning. the aide said they already told the reporter that time was up. choose to believe if you wish. >> haven't we all been there. >> exactly. >> we don't like that question, time is up. time is up. this next guy you'll talk about never would stop an interview. >> no time is up. >> john kasich says he has the best chance of any republican to win in the fall. he believes that would sway delegates at a contested convention. kasich would have to win 126% of the remaining delegates to clinch the nomination before then. he has not added a single
8:04 am
delegate in the last six primaries and caucuses. >> kasich has won just one of the 36 contests so far. that was his home state of ohio. elsewhere he has been the top vote getter in only six counties, two in michigan, four in vermont. john kasich is with us at the table. welcome. >> good to be with you, charlie. >> how much pressure are you under to get out of the race? >> zero. none. i just had 4,000 people in grace, new york -- i'm sorry, greece, new york. here's the thing. for the first time since i have been a candidate, because i don't get into the mud and call names, people are finally starting to hear my message. you know what's interesting, i'm the only one that consistently beats hillary clinton and i beat her decisively. i think when we get to a convention which i've been saying we were going to get to since a couple months now, people are going to look at who can win in the fall. because i believe with these other two guys we have a chance to lose not just the white house
8:05 am
but senate and others. >> there's also a speculation if it becomes a contested convention they'll look at paul ryan. >> it's hard to say who the delegates will look at. >> do you think it ought to be someone who has been in the race. >> it's up to the delegates. a wide open convention is something that's good for the party. and it allows people to determine who it is that can unite the country. who is it that can be president? we tend to think of this as some sort of a game. this is not a game. we have to pick the commander in chief, the leader of the free world and the president of the united states. this is -- these are important decisions. so you know, look, for the first time i'm being heard now, the crowds are growing. we're doing fine. am i under pressure? the person that's under pressure is the woman with a couple kids whose husband works out on her. >> i just asked the question. >> i don't have pressure. >> no party leaders -- >> i'd like to know who the party leaders are. the party leaders haven't been doing so great here over the last few years, have they.
8:06 am
>> we have a lot of questions for you. >> what do mow neyou mean? >> what do i mean? what are we doing? where have the ideas been? what are we going to solve the serious problems? i'll give you one example. how is it possible that the republicans did not come up with a plan to make sure that anybody that has a pre-existing condition in health should not ever be denied health insurance. how did we never do that? the party -- >> president obama did that under obamacare. >> the republicans should have been doing that when they had control. they spent too much money. they blew the budget and look, all i'm trying to say is, the party has a tendency to be against things more than being for things. i think it's very important in a political party or with a candidate, what are your ideas? what is it you're going to do to lift people, to fix the country? >> the convention is ultimately about delegates. you haven't added a delegate in six weeks. >> you know what's happening in new york. we're rising. look --
8:07 am
>> you're way behind in third place. >> so was lincoln when he went to the convention as well. look, the point is, we've had ten contested republican conventions and seven times the person who was not the leader, the front-runner was selected. only three times did the front-runner get picked. >> how -- >> the only path to victory for you is a contested convention. >> for everybody. for everybody. >> donald trump says he would consider picking you as his vice presidential candidate? would you run with him. >> zero chance. >> what if that's the best chance for the party. >> zero chance. i am running for president of the united states. and that's it. if i'm not president, which i think i have an excellent shot to be, i will finish my term as governor and maybe i'll be a co-host on your show. you never know. >> could you be more effectual as vice president? >> i served my country for a very long time. people have the opportunity to let me serve as president. >> i want to get to this. you were saying in a speech today there are two paths.
8:08 am
>> right. >> one is the path of darkness. >> correct. >> who is articulating the path of darkness? >> trump and cruz. >> both of them? >> i think so. on one hand you're targeting muslim neighborhoods. secondly, you're deporting 11.5 million people. or you're making crazy promises that are not going to be fulfilled. >> why are so many republican voters voting for them? >> i think first of all, charlie -- >> the path of darkness. >> people are frustrated, first of all. and the issue is when you talk into a room, you've done this, you can drive people into a depression, you could drive them into a ditch or you can go in and you can tell them, yes, we have problems but we can fix them. the problems we have in this country are not anywhere as near severe as we've had in the past. somehow we've gotten into this bad mood which we shouldn't stay in because it's not that hard to fix the things. it just means we have to be americans rather than republicans and democrats and knock off all the partisanship we see. these are not -- these things are not that hard to fix, not
8:09 am
social security, not the economy, none of it is hard. it's the politics that's hard. with the leader that has experience and ability to get people to work together, we can get easily get beyond this. >> the convention will be in your home state, ohio, cleveland. >> right. >> are local law enforcement ready. >> we will be local. the local cleveland police. our highway patrol, the secret service. >> are you concerned about riots? are you concerned about violence? >> we don't sit around and say we're worried about a riot. we're going to be ready for whatever comes up. and you know, i think the more we talk about the fact that there will be -- why do we keep talking about this? ri riot? >> you're talking about a path to darkness. the two men that have the most votes are leading a path to darkness. >> that's why they're not going to be the nominees. they can't win in the fall. >> frequently people are nominated when they don't win in
8:10 am
the fall. >> i would not sit here and say i'm spinning all day, is thinking about we may have riots. that's just hyperbole. that's where we are today. who can say the thing to get everybody stirred up and get eye balls. >> there are people who raise the question, candidates and people who support candidates. >> we'll be as ready as is humanly possible to deal with whatever comes our way. but, look, the point of the story is this, i think people should know this. i have run a campaign on the high road. i have not taken the low road to the highest office. as a result of that, i didn't get attention for six months. even after i finished second in new hampshire, we didn't get the bump. you know why? no name calling. now we're down to three and finally people are getting a chance to hear my message and you can see the crowds that are rising. here in new york, we're running second. we're running strong in maryland. we're doing well in connecticut. we're going to compete in pennsylvania. we're going to get more delegates and we'll go into the convention with momentum. you know why?
8:11 am
because it's the message and the record and the hope that i think i bring. >> trump doesn't get it? >> no. you know he's not. nobody is going to get it. we're going to go to a convention and people are going to learn about how we pick a president. you will have the guy on from "hamilton." that's history. >> we have to save time for the guy from "hamilton." >> oh, forget him. he has all the press he wants. they transformed one of america's founding fathers into a hip hop sensation. they're all over the place. ahead, the men who brought "hamilton" to broadway and how the show ,, good morning. a few clouds, and sun here and there.

8:34 am
think it's accomplished? >> i will leave that to your pundits to decide. i'm really -- like in the words of the show in the eye of the hurricane. for me, the fun of writing this book was it actually gave us sort of a moment to reflect on the making of it. jeremy introduce med to oscar eustace. we became friends when he was a critic and i was a writer, which doesn't happen very often. so he was one of the first people i told of the idea when it was still a concept album in my head, and so he really was a within to all of it. he was the only person who could write this book. >> so, jeremy, describe that. when he first sent you a demo with some of the songs from hamilton, what did you think? >> well, he handed me -- it was so long ago, it was a cd. it's one of those moments i'll never forget. he came in, introduced me.
8:35 am
he gave me the cd, i went home to my apartment in brooklyn and listened to it. that was the first exposure. >> i've written like five or six songs. >> and even now when i listen to helpless, with hamilton, when lin sent a demo of "helpless --" >> in terrible falsetto. >> very distinctly falsetto. i thought this is a crazy idea but will be the best show of its generation. >> go ahead. >> i was going say, in that moment right there, there's so many moments where this was going on at the time dhouchl you sort of want that to grow with this so that in the future ten years from now kids look at it and say, here's the musical. here's the whole story behind it. this really is a revolution. >> it was on my mind a lot that i -- i helped the public do its gala a couple of years ago. i had to go back and do the
8:36 am
research and try to reconstruct what had happened. how they put the show together. what i found is it's really hard to get those details pachlt so in writing this, it's like the show. even tommy kale, the director, talked about wanting to tell the story, which is not about this historical fact and that historical fact. it's about the emotional reality that these people were living through. i wanted to get it down on the pauj. this is not how it happened but what we went through at the time. this is an experience we went through. there was some heavy stuff that happened so that ten years from now when kids are doing it. they can pick up this book and say, oh, that's how they did it. now i understand. >> one of the actors said to me it connected him to the history. for once he felt part of american history. >> well, i mean i think that's the secret. i think the secret sauce in the writing of it is i wasn't much of a history student as a kid. mile research was in the biography and then finding a
8:37 am
