explode at any time. harvey is being blamed for at least 40 deaths, almost 125,000 customers are still without power. today president trump will make his second visit to the disaster zone as the federal government begins the process f of -- to help the gulf coast recover. we have a team of correspondents throughout east texas. we start with kris van cleave who's been monitoring this situation at that chemical plant in crosby, texas. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. the fire crews behind us here are essentially waiting for the next fire to start. the chemical plant says that could happen at any minute. but even when it does, there's not a whole lot the firefighters can do about it. they're going to have to let the fire burn itself out. because it's just too dangerous to go in and fight it directly. huge flames shoot from some of the eight trailers containing explosively unstable organic peroxide inside the arkema chemical plant. as the smoke billowed sheriffs deputies put on protective gear
including gas masks. earlier some residents living near the plant tried to get around a mandatory evacuation order to go back home. this woman was met with roadblocks. >> because of the explosion risk, they will not let us into our house. we know that it flooded. we just want to get back there to see. >> reporter: on thursday, a ninth container exploded and burst into flames after the flood knocked out the plant's refrigeration system that keeps the volatile chemicals stable. the smoke from that fire sent 18 police and paramedics to the hospital with symptoms ranging from lost voices to dizziness to choking. more explosions are imminent but friday we were able to get a look at the plant just a couple of hours before the fire started. vehicles remain submerged and parts of the facility are still water logged. >> are you worried about these explosions they're talking about? >> reporter:. >> in a way yeah, they haven't
been bad but they could get bad. >> reporter: this woman was trying to make it home to get more medication. >> we had no water problems at all. our problem is because of this chemical plant. and we don't know when we can get in. who's going to notify us when we can come back. nobody has told us anything. >> reporter: the plant houses a number of potentially dangerous? chemicals but the company insists they're isolated away and that the fire shouldn't impact the other dangerous chemicals but the smoke itself can be an irtants and can cause breathing problems. that's part of why there's a mile and a half evacuation zone. >> thank you, kris van cleave. now to beaumont, texas, which is cut off, every major highway in or out of the city is either closed or flooded and the supply of drinking water for more than 120,000 people is knocked out, causing a dire situation. anna werner is in beaumont are evacuations are taking place by
air. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, anthony. there were hundreds more people evacuated here from the regional airport at beaumont overnight. including an american airlines flight that was offered up by the company. those people had to leave red cross shelters here in thesy after the city lost its drinking water. that water lost of course because the floodwaters overwhelmed the pumping stations and that is a dire situation as you said with no drinking water. it forced those people who were in shelters taking refuge there to leave. >> you pray, you ask for help and maybe they can give us resources and maybe we can get to higher ground. maybe we can feel safe. >> reporter: trina and her step father and grandson escaped. like many at the regional airport they were told to board heading 250 miles to dallas. do you know what you'll do next? >> no. we have no knowledge of the thole.
how we'll get to where we are going. >> reporter: people staying in the three red cross shelters had to leave because there was no running water. even this major hospital was forced to evacuate its patients including infants. buses that were supposed to ferry evacuees from the airport to san antonio got turned around. flooded roads made the trip too dangerous. >> we have been ready to go since we heard there was a hurricane out in the gulf. >> reporter: major justin davis is with the air national guard and he said evacuations will continue around the clock. what's the hardest part though about making this operation work? >> it's the logistics. we're coordinating with multiple civilian agencies. the problems crop up, we put our heads together and we come up with a solution. and we do what's right and what's best for everyone. >> reporter: while some families told us they won't be returning, trina says dallas won't be her final destination. are you ever going back to port
arthur? >> probably so. it's still home. it may not be soon, but still home. >> reporter: so there's some water running in the city for flushing toilets only. some -- a little bit of water coming out of the taps as the city and private companies work to find some solutions to solving this problem as quickly as possible. there were lines all over the city. miles long some of them. as people lined up desperately trying to get bottled water for drinking. the water by the way coming out of the taps is not safe for drinking. it would have to be boiled for a good long time before it could be used for human consumption. dana? >> all right, thank you. more than 1 million people have been displaced because of this storm. some residents are now returning home but others could continue to face even more flooding. michelle miller is in houston with the latest. michelle, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. well, places that have dried t out, the desperate clean-up
begins. here in meyer land, texas, block after block, there are piles of debris and sheet rock and water logged furniture that have been pulled out of the flooded homes. the smell of mold and mildew is overwhelming and this is progress. a lot of people aren't even here yet. a week after hurricane harvey made landfall, floodwaters in many parts of houston are still receding. >> i don't know how i could ever repay you. >> reporter: residents like howard holmes are relying on the kindness of strangers. >> 90% of this block is in survival mode right now. it's heartwrenching. >> reporter: some houstonians face more flooding when the water from the two reservoirs are released. sylvester turner implored people to leave now if they can. >> remain in your homes for the next 10 to 15 days, it's simp simply -- it's simply not in your best interest and neither is it in the best interest of
our first responders. >> reporter: but there are signs that life is moving on. >> we had one store flood out. >> reporter: mattress one manager don ice is helping the community get a fresh start. >> i have had a lot of customers that have lost everything they haved that, they're moving into apartments. this is the first thing they have to have is a new bed to sleep on. >> reporter: an hour south of houston in lake jackson, mario martinez was just seeing the waters rise for the first time. >> we were waiting for water to come in, but i never thought this neighborhood would get it. we thought we were high and dry right here. >> reporter: runoff from the brazos river is forcing residents to flee. >> we stacked two sandbags high around each of the doors all the way around the house. >> reporter: al beard and his wife found safe harbor for their horse and grabbed their dog. >> it's so hard to watch the water rise and not have any
control. i think that's the hardest part. there's nothing you can do. >> reporter: while so many people are still dealing -- are still dealing with all of that water, 124,000 homes remain without power. anthony? >> well, michelle miller, thank you. the effects of hurricane harvey are being felt at gas stations. the price of a gallon of regular has increased as flooding from harvey knocked out refinery capacity in texas and many gas stations are running out of fuel. according to the website gasbuddy, the average national gas price is now $2.56 a gallon. that's up 20 cents from a week ago. president trump returns to harvey's path today. the president makes two stops on his second visit to the disaster zone in a week. he'll arrive in houston this afternoon and then travel to lake charles, louisiana. this as the white house makes its first pitch to congress on how to pay for the recovery that could take months or years.
david begnaud is in houston with the latest. >> reporter: dana, good morning. we becomes the president to arrive as early as 11:00 local time and not known about where he'll go, but the white house said he'll meet with people directly affected by harvey. and meet with volunteers. people who have been so crucial to the good work that is being done here. the president has already asked congress for $8 billion in money to help the folks of texas. he was in south texas on tuesday, but he never met with people directly affected by harvey. he was criticized for that, but the white house said that was on purpose. he didn't want to get in the way. two days later vice president mike pence went to rockport, texas. you might remember they took a direct hit from hurricane harvey. the vice president did meet with people affected by the storm. he visited a church that had been gutted by harvey. when president trump wraps up here in houston he'll head for lake charles, louisiana, which also saw a lot of flooding from
harvey. by the time harvey rolled into louisiana it was a tropical storm and anthony, tomorrow, it will be a national day of prayer. the president has declared it a national day for the people affected. >> david begnaud, in houston, thank you. a violent storm battered parts of north carolina. you can see from this satellite to moved out to sea but before it left heavy rain and hail the size of softballs came down so hard that it broke the windows of several cars in central north carolina there were tornado warnings. at the peak of the storm, thousands of customers lost power. out west, thousands of firefighters are battling at least 56 major wildfires and searing triple digit heat. the smoke and flames ungulfing part of 210. officials shut down a 12 mile stretch of the road and in burbank, california, an evacuation order after a brushfire e for more on the weather, we
turn to meteorologist ed curran from our chicago station wbbn. ed, good morning. >> good morning, dana. fire weather warnings remain in the areas of red you see here with hot temperatures continue, 111 degrees in sacramento for today. on the east coast, just the opposite as we superstorm sandy a temperature of 65 in washington, d.c., about 20 degrees below the norm for this time of year. what's left of harvey is moving to the northeast and as it does we could trigger off just a marginal chance for severe storms during this area here, damaging wind, isolated tornado possible in this particular region. here's the next storm we're watching. this is hurricane irma. this is a category 2 right on the borderline of a 3 and will continue to track toward puerto rico here to the north of it by thursday as a category 4. will it impact continental u.s.? it's still too early to tell. >> meteorologist ed curran from our chicago station wbbn-tv. thank you, ed.
some republicans are pushing back on president trump's plan to roll back a controversial immigration program, the deferred action for early childhood arrivals, or daca, protects nearly 1 million illegal immigrants from deportation. paw ula reed is at the white house. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. republican lawmakers were outraged when president obama created the daca program through executive action and called it unconstitution unconstitutional. on the campaign trail, donald trump vowed to end the program. as president he appears conflicted and republican lawmakers are calling for president trump to keep the program while congress works on a legislative solution. >> we love the dreamers. we love everybody. >> reporter: president trump will announce his decision tuesday about what to d with 800,000 dreamers, people who came to the u.s. illegally as children but were protected from deportation by the obama administration. >> it makes no sense to expel
talented young people who for all intents and purposes are americans. >> reporter: on the campaign trail, then candidate trump pledged to end the controversial policy. >> anyone who has entered the united states illegally is subject to deportation. >> reporter: white house press secretary sarah huckabee sanders dodged reporters' questions on friday and did not confirm that the president intends to follow through on his promise. >> this isn't a decision that the president takes lightly. i think the decision itself is weighing on him. >> reporter: over the past few months the president gave dreamers reason to believe he'd changed his mind. in february he called it a very difficult decision. >> we'll deal with daca with heart because i love these kids. i love kids. >> reporter: and in april he told the associated press dreamers should rest easy. many republicans argue daca is unconstitutional because president obama created it by regulation instead of going to congress. >> president obama did not have legislative authority to do what he did.
you can't as an executive write law out of thin air. >> reporter: in a radio interview friday speaker paul ryan urged the president to keep daca in place while congress works on a solution that does not involve deportation. >> these are kids who know no other country, who are brought here by their parents and don't know another home. i think we want to give people peace of mind. >> reporter: tuesday is the deadline set by texas and eight other states that have threatened to sue over daca if the president does not rescind the program. anthony? >> paula reed at the white house this morning. thank you. let's bring in "washington post" national correspondent phillip bump for more on this. phillip, good morning. >> good morning. >> the president's kind of caught between two sides even within his own party here. what does he do? >> that's great question. we'll find out tuesday. i think the challenge that trump faces at this point is he ran his campaign on an immigration platform that lacked any nuance. it was we're taking the hard line on immigration, on
immigrants that are here illegally and he needs to figure out if there is a nuance pact forward here. obviously democrats agree with president obama's initial decision. >> between sort of two places even within his own party, how much blowback does he face? >> the reason that donald trump is president is in part because of his hard line on immigration. he had this huge base of support and his base believes in this issue. but his base also loves him basically no matter what he does, so it will be interesting to see if he bucks them onda ka if they stand by him. >> congress comes back from the summer break next week. they haven't been able to agree on much. at the top of the ata is going to be relief for harvey. is that going to get through? >> it seems like it. people are always supportive of taking steps to help after a natural disaer. even the folks who were reticent in the wake of hurricane sandy,
which happened to be a lot of folks from texas, in fact -- >> corpus christi has be >> chris christie has been pointing out repeatedly. >> despite having republican control, we've soon so much gridlock. not that from kacane senator jo mccain about that gridlock. do they have to get past that gridlock? >> if they want to get anything done. the thing to keep in mind is the gridlock we're seeing in washington is not spirely the sort of thing we of seen in the past, republicans and democrats at loggerheads. there are two factions within the republican party. the health care bill, for example, the problem was not that democrats were oppositional, moderate and conservative republicans couldn't agree. there is something to be resolved, but at this point it's mostly within the republican party. >> i want to turn to the russia investigation for a moment because there are reports in your newspaper and "the new york times" that special counsel robert mueller's team is now in possession of an early draft of the letter by president trump
and top aide stephen miller, which laid out the case for firing fbi director james comey. how significant is this letter? >> until we see it, it's hard to say but it's potentially very significant. one of the questions at hand that robert mueller is apparently investigating is whether or not donald trump obstructed justice by firing jim comey, the fbi director, and one thick th thing that will tell us whether or not he did was what was he thinking, was he trying to impede the russia investigation. this letter, multiple pages long, the "new york times" said it was a screen, i would suggest it had a lot of emotion in it. if that letter suggests donald trump was prepared to tell james comey it was because of the russia investigation, that certainly bolsters the idea he was trying to prevent the russia investigation from moving forward. >> we of also learned that mueller's enlisted the irs' criminal investigation unit to help in his investigation. what does that tell us? >> i think people sort of -- they hear this robert mueller's investigating russia and it's sort of like if you have a break-in at your house and the police come over and they see a dead body on the floor, they're
going to ask you about that dead body. robert muler is in this investigation and it seems as though he's pulling in finance-related stuff. the daily beast reports the irs is getting looped in, which suggests there are tax-related issues. we don't know the scope but it's clearitis not solely focused on russia. >> phillip bump, national correspondent for "the washington post," thanks for being with us. about 22 after the hour. here's a look at the weather for your weekend. some members of a now disbanded penn state fraternity will go on trial following the alcohol-related death of a pledge. but many of the most serious charges against them have been dismissed. we'll get reaction and find out what was behind the judge's
don't let the speed limit put you at risk for a ticket. how fast is too fast in the eyes of the law provoking that police pullover? what a big new study found out. and a counterculture funny man found a cultural institution. we'll hear about cheech marin's high hopes for a new museum of chicano art planned for southern california. you're watching "cbs this morning saturday." atching "cbs this morning saturday."
what do we know about him? >> he left iran as a child and he's run expedia for quite a while, run it well, good jender dynamics at the company, led acquisitions and does not appear to be a crazy press hound. those things all work in his favor. >> i'm talking about everybody up for the position. >> never heard of this guy outside of silicon valley knows him. >> everybody else is e-mailing their friends and leaking stories and making sure the right tweets go out and suddenly on sunday meg whitman gets the job but negotiates for extra leverage, we hear more from the press and the board says, forget it, let's go with him. interesting part of the reason he got it is because he wasn't publicly seeking it. >> how about the culture he's
walking into? more than 20 people fired, sexual harassment allegations in june. what does he have to deal with? >> a broken culture axe lot of positioning to fill. there's a joke uber is the first e successful driving company. nudge of the positions are filled except for ceo. he has improve gender dynamics, deal with a complicated pay structure where right now all the bonus money goes to the top performing employees so there's inequity, and he has to deal with people leafing and nobody wanting to work there. >> go ahead. >> on the other hand, he's got billions of dollars. he's got a lot of challenges but also the most valuable private company in the history of america. he has some leverage. >> what about him and the dynamic between him and travis kalanick? he's stepped down but not really aside. they have to work together. >> it will be so tricky. it's very important to have travis on your side. he has allies on the board, a board seat. >> and he loves that company.
fire in the sky over the uk. crowds who stayed past dusk at the bournemouth air show last night got quite a sight. these aircraft are fitted with special pyrotechnics literally turning them into flying fireworks. >> i've never seen anything like that. >> it looks like a video game almost in some was. >> really cool. welcome pack to "cbs this morning saturday." coming up this half hour, along with so many other problems, floodwaters are raising health concerns for people along the gulf coast. we'll look at the threats they're facing. and dramatic video shows a police detective dragging a screaming nurse from a hospital. we'll tell you why she was arrested and why prosecutors are calling for a criminal investigation of the police. that's ahead. we begin this half hour with reaction to a judge's dramatic
ruling in the penn state hazing case. >> members of the now disbanded fraternity will still face charges in the death of a pledge following a night of ritualized drinking but the most serious charges against them including involuntary manslaughter have now been dismissed. jim axelrod has the story. >> reporter: former frat brothers left the courthouse absorbing the stunning news, the most serious charges dismussed. 14 of them still face misdemeanors including alcohol and hazing charges. >> i just feel relieved. >> reporter: former brother 'ems had his reckless endangerment charge dropped all together. >> this was a terrible, terrible tragedy and that's what it was simply. there was no intent, malice, any criminal activity on my part or i believe on any of my friends' parts. >> reporter: it was last february 2nd when 19-year-old penn state sophomore timothy piazza was at the frat house for a pledge event. prosecutors argue piazza was
forced to drink massive amounts of alcohol. surveillance video shows piazza repeatedly falling, passing out, and tumbling headfirst down a flight of stairs. no one called 911 for hours. >> the headlines are going to be most serious charges dropped. >> the headline is wrong if that's the headline. >> the family lawyer tom kline and tim's parents say the important thing is that beta theta pi brothers will stand trial. >> i'm looking forward to seeing the trial and whatever else comes out of the investigation really. >> facing hazing charges. >> and that's important to you. >> absolutely. >> that's important. >> why? >> because we need to put a stop to it. >> it has no place in greek life, sports, marching bands. it just has no place. it's torture. it's abuse. >> reporter: the judge ruled the state did not provide sufficient evidence that the defendant's knew their actions would almost certainly create tragic consequences. defense attorney ted simon. >> there's no happiness here.
there is no celebration here. a young man lost his life and we're very saddened about that. but my client is not criminally responsible by way of aggravated assault or involuntary manslaughter or simple assault with regard to those charges. >> reporter: the most serious of the charges dismissed friday carry a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison. the one that remain carry a maximum of two. the prosecutor says she will refile the assault and manslaughter charges in front of a new judge. for "cbs this morning saturday," this is jim axelrod in bellefonte, pennsylvania. >> just no winners at all in any situation there at all. >> absolutely right. >> time to show you some-this morning's headlines now. you've heard of fake news. now thehill.com has a warning from the national weather service about some fake weather forecasts. they show hurricane irma on track to slam into the texas/louisiana gulf coast. the agency calls them misleading because early projections show
irma possibly hitting the caribbean in about five days. reuters reports that tomorrow frankfurt, germany, will evacuate some 60,000 people. that's because next week city officials will defuse a massive world war ii bomb. it contains more than a ton of explosives, enough to level a city block. the bomb is believed of course the dropped by britain's royal air force. the "detroit free press" says musician and would-be senate candidate kid rock is lashing out at a watchdog group. the paper citing the group common cause says the rocker, to whose real name is robert ritchie, violated the law because he has not lenlsterred as a kand dit. he told them to d something we can't repeat on morning tv. >> "the new york daily news" says serena williams gave birth to a baby girl in west palm beach, florida. the newborn weighed 6 pounds and 13 ounces.

time now for the morning rounds, the medical news of the week. the rains have finally let up in texas and louisiana. but hurricane harvey left behind historic levels of flooding. the waters have displaced thousands along the gulf coast including more than 30,000 people in houston. the nation's fourth largest city. on top of the incredible disruption to daily life, those floodwaters create ongoing health concerns for survivors of the storm. joining us from los angeles to discuss this and more is cbs news contributing doctor david aguess. good morning. give me some idea, what are the health concerns i mentioned as with flooding like this that we'll see in the coming days and weeks? >> unfortunately they're significant. you know, texas is a state that has refineries that has a number of super fund sites, obviously the sewer lines. when there's that much water, all of the contaminants in the
three areas can spread throughout the city. at the same time, with stagnant water you get the diarrhea diseases and then mosquitos will become rampant because you have the breeding ground just sitting there. so if you're in texas and back in your home, the key is wear boots and gloves, wash everything. air it out as much as possible. really try to be sure that that contaminated water doesn't get into your food supply or what you're drinking. >> this is a distressing time for those in the gulf coast. what is the emotional stress? >> this is a trauma. this is post-traumatic stress disorder in many people. there's anxiety and depression, et cetera. if you look at the significant floods that have happened this kind of stress is one of the major stress that latches on. support system, try to talk to your family members outside of the city. if this is significant, if it
continues, talk to a doctor because this is real. >> david, you mentioned a couple of things about when you get back in the home but as people go forward and do, what should they keep in mind? >> keep in mind that, you know, whenever there was water that touched anything there's a potential of contamination. bleach products, you have to clean everything out. you have to make sure that everything is decontaminated. your children, when they play with a toy, make sure it had been cleaned before they touch it. you have to think of everything. and it's such a stressful situation, sometimes it's difficult. >> our next topic deals with a potential break through in the way we fight cardiovascular disease. a newly published study looked at the way a drug can fight this disease and cancer. >> around 10,000 patients with issues such as heart attack participated. the participants were split into four groups, three receiving different doses of the drug and
a placebo group. the drug called is alar us. and the trial was founded by the make -- funded by the drug company novartis. david, first of all, what is the drug and what did the study show? >> it's a pretty important study. we have had hypothesized for many years that inflammation was involved in heart disease and in cancer. so this was a drug that was atually used for juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, an autoimmune disease. when it was given every three months what they saw was they saw was a significant decrease in further heart attacks. even though they were on statins, lipitor and other drugs when they gave them the anti-inflammatory they had a decrease in heart attacks. there was a dramatic increase in cancer death. over 50% of the highest dose reduction in cancer death rates which is dramatic in the pan -- in the span of a several year
study. inflammation has been validated in heart disease and cancer. >> anything else in regards to cancer that the paper on this showed? >> well, what it showed is that in lung cancer in particular, in these patients, they had a dramatic reduction. 50 plus percent in both the cancer and mortality. so we know that inflammation is important in lung cancer -- lung cancer happens in smokers, but if you block this, that's why we say take a daily baby aspirin because it blocks inflammation. >> any other factors or side effects that can limit the use of this? >> this isn't a drug that will go forward, there are significant side effects by blocking the immune system, they block a molecule called interleukin 1 and there's more infections in the patients if you do that. but there are lots of ways to down modulate inflamgmation and that's what we have to focus on. >> finally a few days ago, the food and drug administration
approved the first gene therapy in the u.s. the drug treats certain children and young adults who have a form of leukemia. david, this seemed to me to be really encouraging as an oncologist what's your reaction to it? >> this is wild. i mean, this is something that a couple of years ago i would say is science fiction. these are children with a.l.l., an aggressive form of leukemia who failed standard treatment. so they take their immune cells, they actually ship them to the factory or manufacturing facility in new jersey and they insert the gene that allows these immune cells to target the cancer. 22 days later they infuse them back into the children. and what they saw is that 83% of these children went into remission. so children facing basically certain death all of a sudden have a new hope. and a dramatic response to this therapy. >> it's just stunning. >> yeah. anybody who's been through that will say they'll take any glimmer of hope.
>> one of the wildest things about this therapy is the drug company charges $475,000. a crazy amount. but realized that a bone marrow transplant would cost about $800,000 but a month after getting the drug if you're not in remission you don't pay for the drug. >> thank you. it's just what you don't want to see in the rearview mirror -- a police officer pulling you over for speeding. but just how fast is too fast in the eyes of the law? we'll have the results of a big study of speeding tickets including who gets them and when. you're watching "cbs this morning saturday." from the 5 a.m. light blinkers to the wobbling yogis. to the stationary race winners, we all need lean protein. and it comes in a jimmy dean's delights breakfast sandwich. stacked with 17 grams of protein. lean into a great day. shine on.

[ chuckles ] sir, you forgot -- keep it. you're gonna need it when i make it precipitate. what, what? what? when the need for speed takes over hopefully the data is on your side.
>> i sped, i followed too closely, i ran a stop sign, i almost hit a chevy. >> driving infractions happen on a daily basis no matter the roads, routes or highways. >> no, no. come on. >> reporters at the pioneer press of st. paul, minnesota, went through all 224,915 traffic tickets issued in the state over the last three years. they found only 3% of tickets were written for drivers exceeding the speed limit by ten miles per hour or less. the most common ticket issued was for those driving 12 miles per mile over the speed limit. while speed is a main factor for officers to pull someone over there are others. >> how you doing, buddy? >> the research showed age and gender do make a difference when ticketing someone for a traffic violation. the younger the driver, the more likely they'll be ticketed. 16 to 25-year-olds got one-third
of the speeding tickets and men are ticketed 50% more than women across all age groups. >> that's very comforting but i'm in high speed pursuit. >> and be mindful of the time. speeding immediately following the morning rush or during the 1:00 to 3:00 traffic lull increases your chances of getting a ticket. >> that's because there are less people on the roads so it's easier to speed and easier to pull people over. >> now a couple of things to point out. they did not have race as a factor because that's not listed on a traffic ticket. that's probably a factor and this was done in minnesota but they believe it would carry over nationwide. >> that does not surprise me all those results. >> you were saying it, they give you the first ten. >> they generally give you the first ten miles. this is the experience from hanging out with cops. >> not for speeding. >> no. although i had a couple of those too. searching for signs of life from people stranded for days to images trapped without food
we'll ride along with those tasked helping everyone get out alive. for some of you, the local news is next. as expressed some reservations about it. your thoughts? it scares a lot of people. >> well, all big new technologies, both have opportunity and threat. >> yeah. >> in a sense those are the great ones. i mean, when cars were invented people were scared of them. they would have -- they regulated initially someone had to walk in front of them waving a flag because who knows what would happen. so it's always a legitimate oh like what's the downside and what's the concern, that's the concern with ai. however, one of the things that's important, okay, we need to navigate this the right way but a we can use ai to create more jobs. to help solve disease.
there's a bunch of things that can be instrumental to and we need to not lose sight of that. >> you say increase jobs because the fear is jobs are not going to be taken by foreign workers but by computers. we'll all be out of a job soon and you're saying that's not the case. >> for example, broadly, all technological -- it creates productivity. the intermediate transition is very painful. >> is that where we are now? >> i think we're at the beginning of it. i think it will get worse because the whole stack, everything from autonomous vehicles which will of course displace a lot of people who are currently driving, but will hopefully -- we can create new opportunities for them. for example, if you transform space, cars created suburbs. you create new kind of economic centers that can be construction, it can be retail jobs. it can be a number of other things. i think that's what you're looking for. with ai, that may actually help us with what are are the ways we can extend human capabilities. who are these people?

♪ welcome to "cbs this morning saturday." i'm anthony mason. >> i'm dana jacobson in for alex wagner. coming up this hour, president trump plans to announce his decision next week on protecting almost a million illegal immigrants from being deported. we'll break down the issue. and this labor day weekend we'll talk about possible changes to the so-called gig economy. how drivers for uber and others are not getting the security or benefits of a full-time job. and it's a long time dream that won't be going up in smoke. we'll talk to actor, comedian and art collector cheech marin about his plans to create a
brand-new southern california museum. first in the nation dedicated solely to mexican-american art. that's ahead. but first, more on our top story this hour. one week after hurricane harvey's landfall the gulf region struggles to get back on its feet at least 40 deaths are blamed on harvey. about 125,000 customers are still without electricity. president trump is expected to visit the disaster zone today. late friday, the trump administration asked congress for nearly $8 billion for relief and recovery efforts. a flooded houston area chemical plant fire burned itself out overnight. in is expected -- in is expected to be more destruction at the site. the remaining containers of a highly combustible compound could explode at any time. kris van cleave is in crosby, texas. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. the firefighters here are monitoring air quality and watching through this fog waiting for the next fire to start from that plant, but they know they can't go in and fight
it. they'll have to let it burn itself out. it's too dangerous to go in. there are several trailers with organic peroxide that will ignite after harvey's floodwaters caused the refrigeration systems to fail. there have been two fires so far on thursday. 18 first responders were sent to the hospital from that fire. they have been treated and released. but homes in a mile and a half radius of the plant remain evacuated. now, the plant insists that these trailers that are going to ignite are isolated away from the rest of the plant that houses other hazardous materials. they say the fires will not threaten the surrounding communities or the rest of the plant but that smoke can be an irritant and can cause breathing problems. dana? >> thank you. an army of volunteers has been helping with rescues. a driver of a monster truck helped with rescues. he used the rig to shuttle stranded residents to safety. michelle miller is in houston with more. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. well, all a across houston you have neighborhoods that look
like this. you can see the water line. it's up to my neck. obviously, residents could get back in to start the clean-up but there were towns that were virtual islands. folks could not get out. that's where we met up with fema as they organized the next stage of their search and rescue. as their operations went from house to house. specialty forces are loading in supplies to reach a stranded texas. this is a staging ground, 400 member strong of specialty rescue teams from all over the map. from new jersey, california, arizona, alabama, tennessee. these are the folks going in and pulling people out. tennessee's urban rescue task force took military high water trucks across a flooded roadway. we joined them as they walked door to door. residents here were cut off for three days. >> first that we really had been
able to talk to -- i know we have been waiting on the red cross. but they have not made it in. >> reporter: they're using regular maps. but also leaving digital bread crumbs with this device. a code determined what they found. >> if we come across anybody that's in a house, we'll mark it as a shelter in place. if there's ten people in there we mark it ten times. >> reporter: people aren't the only targets. >> well, hello. >> reporter: california's task force one was out on the water rescuing animals in the town. wading through high water, they also checked each house for any sign of life. back at the staging ground, the little ones got a bath. a new life after being left for dead. >> this city is like -- it was like an island when we showed up. it was about four feet deep and when we showed up yesterday the center of it was dry. everything around it was about
six to eight feet of water. >> reporter: keith black is in charge of distributing each of the task forces around wharton. in a few days, they saved a community. >> mostly yesterday we pulled out about 75 people. a lot of pets actually evacuated a complete nursing home. >> reporter: with every street now highlighted it's on to the next town. >> mission accomplished? >> yes. >> reporter: and those specialty teams are on their ninth straight day, anthony. we should note while some remain in the houston area, others are being deployed south of here to areas newly hit by flooding. and east to beaumont, texas. >> michelle miller in houston, those folks are doing amazing work, thank you. a huge wildfire is burning in southern caifornia. you're going to see dash cam video of a car on interstate 210 north of los angeles. the massive flames and thick smoke make it almost impossible to drive. a 12 mile stretch of the highway
was closed to traffic and there's another big wildfire, this one in burbank. 50 homes were threatened. evacuations were ordered. about 800,000 so-called dreamers will learn their fate on tuesday. that's when president trump is expected to announce plans to end the controversial deferred action for childhood arrivals or daca program. it was created during the obama administration and prevents about 800,000 people who came to the u.s. illegally as children from being deported. >> joining us from our washington bureau is elise foley, politics and immigration reporter for the huffington post. elise, good morning. >> good morning. >> what are we expecting on tuesday? do we have any idea yet? >> well, there have been a lot of reports last week that the president is planning to end the program. most likely by making it so that these permits run out. so people have the permits for two years that allows them to work legally, get driver's licenses, live without some fear of deportation.
and so what is expected is that he will announce that they can no longer renew those which is functionally the same in terms of their lives that's taking them away and then we'll start to see people being put back in the position. >> so elise, very long few days wait for some people out there. if this is rescinded, what does it mean for them at that time? >> well, if it is that he doesn't allow them to renew they won't necessarily lose their jobs immediately. but you'll start to see people have them expire and so if you're no longer allowed to work legally a lot of these people are employed, they'll have to be fired by their employers. which includes some major companies, microsoft has come out against this. because they employ some daca recipients so they'll lose their employment, but they'll become at risk of deportation. so even if the trump administration doesn't try to go deport former daca recipients, people who come in contact with
immigrations and customs enforcement do get detained. so i think that if the program ends you will see some people who were former daca recipients being deported. >> we reported in first hour that the president is actually facing pressure from both sides of his own party on this. i mean, there are states that are threatening to sue if the program isn't scrapped but there are gop leaders like paul ryan who are saying that it should stay. >> that's right. so it's something that he promised over and over throughout his campaign, talked about how it was unconstitutional amnesty and there are a lot of republicans -- most republicans probably who feel the same way, that president obama never should have done this. at the same time, they also are in this difficult political position because deporting dreamers as these people are called is not a popular thing to do. polling even shows that ending the program is not a popular thing to do, even among republicans. so they are in this position
where perhaps it would be easier for them to have the program simply continue and then they wouldn't have to try to pass anything. so you have paul ryan, you have even one of the attorneys general who threatens trump with legal action saying that perhaps he should don't this and give them a chance to pass some sort of legislation instead. >> if we did see some kind of legislation, what might that look like under this congress? >> so there are a few different options, one of them is the dream act which is -- which has been around for 16 years. they have never been able to get it through both chambers. but it would provide a path to citizenship for many of these people. there's also a new bill called the rack act which has been introduced in the house, that's going to be introduced in the senate that's they're framing it as a conservative version of the dream act. it would provide a path to citizenship, but for a slightly narrower population. and that would probably have to be coupled with some sort of other measures, border security.
more money for immigration enforcement, perhaps money for the border wall. in order to get that through with republicans. however, they have not been able to pass things like this before. they have not gotten them both chambers in the past so it would be a very very much an uphill battle. >> thank you. today is the day the russian consulate in los angeles must close. black smoke was seen coming from the chimney on friday. a reporter heard people who came from the building say the staff was burning unidentified items in the fireplace. the state department has ordered the russians to scale back their presence in washington, d.c., and here in new york city. it's about ten after the hour. here's a look at the weather for your weekend.
forget the full-time company job. millions of americans now make a living where and when they can. but this so-called gig economy has left many without the traditional benefits and protections of regular employment. we'll examine the issues they're facing next. you're watching "cbs this morning saturday."

that many full-time workers traditionally receive and on this labor day weekend, some say that needs to change. here to talk about it with us is vera gibbons a finance expert and founder and editor-in-chief of the website nonpolitical news. good morning. >> good morning. >> how fast is this gig economy growing? >> it's very -- it's growing very quickly. so about 34% of the workforce now are gig workers and expected to grow to 40% by 2020. a mean a lot has to do -- i mean, a lot has to with after the recession. it's an expensive proposition, but you have on the other side people who want the gigs. so they're there by choice not because they have to be. >> because it gives them flexibility. >> yeah. >> i mentioned the airbnb and ubers, but what are some of the other areas? >> the rise of the on demand workers is fueled by airbnb and responsible for the rise is the technology. so you are seeing it across
digital platforms. car sharing, online staffing, peer to peer financing. there's no end in sight. the work that involves a single task is out there so you see it all over the place. >> if there are no medical or insurance benefits what's the allure? >> well, you touched on it, it's the flexibility. so everybody likes the fact that you can have your own hours. you can work as much or as little as you want. you can work mornings or evenings and people like the money, they say it's fun. they like the social aspect. but it is the flexibility that's key. >> flexibility is great but you need the other things that you mentioned. so who are the people who are most attracted to the jobs? >> millennials primarily. they are big in the game but we are seeing a growing percentage of the pre-retirees, too. about 10% of the pre-retiree households and they like it for the same reasons. but again the social aspect primarily for them.
they like to make extra money and they don't have the financially depen department kids at home. >> some said this is like the wild west, there's no real regulation here. are we going to get there, do you think? >> some are calling for oversight complete regulation that you see in the traditional labor market. there's talk about portable benefits. i don't know we'll get there right away. i think the regulatory changes it's a long way to go. we're in unchartered territory here but at some point the employees have to change their staffing strategies because they have to stay competitive. so i don't know what will happen. >> do you think these types of jobs will eventually just take over and replace the traditional job? >> well, if you look at the gig economy as a whole it is growing faster than the traditional payroll employment and in some sectors and in some areas it is superseding. it is the primary mode of employment. so it would be interesting to see how this shakes out, particularly when you have the new technologies coming on board. you have got the self-driving
cars. you've got all these different technologies. drones. artificial intelligence. what will the gig economy look like down the line, nobody knows. >> ten years from now, it will be very difficult. >> it's not going away. >> ten years ago we didn't have per. >> that's right. vera gibbons, thank you. it's time to kick things off in college football -- they get to go first. we'll talk to cbs sports' brian jones about the season ahead. probably some red bull in there. >> that man does not need red bull. >> we'll look at how hurricane harvey has had an effect already on college football as well. we'll get into that. you're watching "cbs this morning saturday." and the wolf huffed and puffed... like you do sometimes, grandpa? well, when you have copd, it can be hard to breathe. it can be hard to get air out,

pettis! zoom zoom, touchdown, washington. >> oh, that's so pretty. that is the washington huskies zooming by rutgers last night. the ninth ranked huskies starred the season with a 30-14 victory. one of the four teams to make it to the college football playoffs last season. >> college football is hoping to kick off where it left off when the clemson tigers capped off a championship season with a last second victory over alabama. but like so many other aspects of life right now, hurricane harvey is having an effect on opening weekend. >> earlier this week, the university of houston's opener was postponed and tonight's game between lsu and byu had to be moved. >> here to talk about the new season is brian jones. he's our high octane cbs college football analyst. good morning. >> good morning. anthony and ms. dana. >> that's an understatement when
it -- >> we should attach that to you% name permanently. i know you have close family in houston. how are they doing? >> everyone is fine. we lost some property but we can replace that. but getting a blow by blow account it was harrowing to watch that, the videos and listen to people, you know, panicking on the phone. you have boats pulling up to the houses to evacuate them. just a surreal situation. >> it's the best word to use to describe it. we'll move on to the college football season ahead. so we mentioned the clemson win. it was such a great way to finish the season. what's the overall picture look like this year? >> well, i think clemson will be back in the picture. but i think florida state this is their year. out of the acc. but clemson will still make some noise. they have a dynamite defense coming back. the epicenter still lives in tuscaloosa, alabama. they own college football. and i still believe that. even though they lost in the
last seconds against clemson. >> acc edging over the s.e.c. >> everyone is talking about the bowl records and i think it's a misnomer. it's so disjointed, some guys have a week to prepare for a bowl and others have a month. but the acc they did win a ton of bowl games a season ago. so they have the bragging rights as the best conference in college football. we'll see. they have a good case to makes. i think miami is going to be for real. finally we can believe in what mark richt is building there. so they have some dynamite teams. >> clemson is ranked fifth. you think they're a contender? >> they'll be a contender, but i like florida state. but they've got so much on defense. lawrence and then they've got wilkins. he can dance like james brown
but he's 295 pounds so they have recruited well. d'abo has won as many games as nick saban has. i like what jimbo fisher is working with. we'll find out about florida state this evening when they take on big bad alabama and alabama losing a lot of pieces on the defensive side of the ball but we know what they do there. they erase and replace. >> who are some of the early front risers for the heisman? >> baker mayfield -- i hate to say this as a long horn, but baker mayfield for the oklahoma sooners he's fantastic. he's finished in the top five in voting and barkley at penn state. taking on akron today. akron last year they allowed 224 per game on the ground. look for him not to play the entire game but he's a guy to focus on especially since they have the balance on offense. and sam darr noeld. i'm going to pro -- i had james washington from oklahoma state the outstanding receiver he showed up and showed out the
other night their ball game. but he has a sports hernia and he blew by everybody in the tulsa hurricane. i took him off the heisman list because of the sports hernia but i may have to put him back on there. >> who do you think the four playoff teams? >> you're going to dog me -- hey, that was last year. we're talking about this year. okay, i have auburn. they have a quarterback they can believe in since marshall and cam -- right, last year. their quarterback couldn't hit a bull in the back side with a palmful of rice. florida state. penn state, trace mcsorley. no one picked penn state to win the big ten last year. i think they repeat as big ten champions. sooners, did i mention the sooners twice? that's three times and that hurts. >> awfully mad at you. >> all right. >> all right, brian jones, thanks. cbs sports network has a doubleheader including kentucky and southern miss and next
saturday catch brian as the "s.e.c. on cbs" kicks off their season long slate. the action starts at 3:00 p.m. with "college football today." you talk about the need to rebuild the infrastructure, the need to lower the cost of prescription drugs these are things that actually president trump calls for as welch -- well. why do you think independents or democrats are finding it difficult to work with the president? he constantly complains that republicans are obstructing things. >> because he -- during the campaign, he said one set of things and the policies that he's implementing right now are are different. during the course of the campaign he said i'm going to stand with the working people and take on the pharmaceutical industry and lower the cost of prescription drugs. that's not what he's doing. i'm going to drain the swamp, get rid of the powerful interests.
