7:04 am
good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you. the story has been the flash flooding. we woke up in moore, oklahoma, outside of oklahoma city, and drove two hours here to hominy. we had heard about rescues, more than 100 rescues that were performed throughout the town. vehicles like this that are stuck in water. at one point, for the three hours we've been here, the water was at least a foot higher. then it dropped quite quickly. icat's the thing with flash flooding. it rises and recedes quickly. second house on the left, a woman was telling us at midnight, she had knee-deep water in oher house. down the road this way, a woman and her child drove in the floodwater and had to be rescued. in hominy, more than 100 rescues. in fact, i called the local police department, and the dispatcher who answered the phone said, we've had so many rescues overnight, i had water in my own home i haven't been able to go home and check on. within the last few hours, there was a tornado that touched down right near the airport in tulsa, oklahoma. you know, this area is known as tornado alley, and it lived up to its name. if there is any good news, among
7:05 am
the tornadoes and flash flooding, no deaths and no reports of injuries either. >> david, thank you. parts of the southern plains are under tornado watches this morning. more than a dozen twisters hit texas, oklahoma, and kansas yesterday. there are no reports of injuries. mireya villarreal is in oklahoma and one of the towns with significant damage. >> reporter: good morning, guys. the county fairgrounds took a direct hit. this building had its roof completely sheered off. the walls and the framework are completely gone. in town, we also know three homes were destroyed, and an apartment complex was also severely damaged. we were on the heels of this tornado yesterday. i can tell you, it was moving fast. >> oh, [ bleep ], a house. >> reporter: a massive twister tore through magnum monday, sending debris through the air. >> you can see it coming closely. finally, my husband says, we have to go somewhere.
7:06 am
>> storm chasers right there. >> oh, my god. >> reporter: another tornado nearby shattered the windows and damaged the roof of this 112-year-old home, and tore this building to the ground. >> couldn't believe it. left a half hour earlier, and it was all there. you come back, and it was completely demolished. >> reporter: one of the only things left standing from this house in perry was a car parked in what used to be the garage. in near crescent, oklahoma, these twin tornadoes spun about a mile apart. the severe storm also brought heavy rains and hail the size of marbles. people in la platte, louisiana, surveyed the damage, where 50 homes and businesses were destroyed and gas pumps were torn straight from the ground. >> fences are down. carports are gone. tin flying through the air. porches are gone. all of that can be fixed. today, i'm saying hallelujah anyhow, because no one was hurt.
7:07 am
>> reporter: there are reports that winds from this storm system hit about 110 miles per hour, at least 110. as we said earlier, there was some major damage here, but no injuries. that is a good thing. crews from the national weather service are expected to be out today to survey the damage and really figure out how strong this tornado was. >> mireya, thank you. f pictures not pretty. thanks a lot. let's take a look at where the storms are going today with chief weather caster, lonnie quinn of wcbs tv. what are you seeing? >> at lot of rain, from kansas to oklahoma into texas. i do believe this morning, and throughout this afternoon, i think rain, i think flooding is going to end up being the biggest story of this day. now, you see all the areas shaded in green. those are flood watches c. we still have a threat for tornadoes. those are sort of colored in the yellow swath. it is a tornado watch right now in portions of the southern plains. watch how this is all going to progress. as we get to this afternoon, kansas city, you are into the severe weather.
7:08 am
this afternoon into this evening, the line is going to push to the east. look at the signature here, guys, okay? this is st. louis tonight, catching strong weather. notice, it is about a 500 mile line of solid red. if i'm looking for a typical signature for a lot of tornadoes, it'd be more like polka dots. again, there is a definite chance for tornadoes. it is all gone by tomorrow. we do focus on this risk today from springfield, missouri, to little rock, arkansas. three out of five. yesterday was a five out of five. it is a severe weather day, but i don't think the tornado outbreak will be as severe as it was yesterday. anthony? >> little good news. thank you. two people are dead after a small alaska-based airlines third crash in less than a year. the float plane crash yesterday is the second deadly incident for the company in a week. it went down in the water near ketchikan.
7:09 am
mola has more. >> the transportation board is investigating the crash which killed the pilot and the only passenger on board. the plane was on a commuter flight. the company also conducts sight-seeing tours. a plane carrying tourists was involved in a mid-air collision last week. you might remember that. six were killed, and ten people. >> reporter: injulast year, all on board a sight-seeing plane had to be hoisted to safety after the pilot became disoriented in cloudy weather and crashed into a mountainside. six passengers were seriously injured in that crash. since 1994, the company has been involved in at least nine accidents, resulting in 15 deaths. the airline directed us to the ntsb, which said while it was unusual for an operating to have two accidents in a short period of time, that alone does not imply there is a safety issue with the company, their pilots, or their aircraft. >> mola, thank you very much. president trump went on a
7:10 am
mission last night to show pennsylvania voters how much he needs them. polls show his arrivpproval is declining. we go to weijia. >> reporter: president trump tried to shore up support for a republican candidate in a special election today, but it quickly became about his own re-election. his campaign says they are focused on battleground states, not concerned, but the president is clearly aware of his competition. >> i'll be here a lot. got to win this state. >> reporter: in pennsylvania last night, montoursville, president trump tried to galvanize his supporters in a battleground state crucial to his re-election campaign. >> we want trump. >> reporter: ticking off a list of accomplishments. >> when you have the best economy, probably that we've ever had, i don't know, how the hell do you lose this election,
7:11 am
right? >> reporter: former and current trump campaign officials tell cbs news, the economy and new jobs are the stars of the 2020 playbook in rust belt states. michigan, wisconsin, and pennsylvania, which mr. trump won by less than 1% in 2016. and while the president's campaign claims it sees the entire democratic field as one block, they are clearly developing an argument against former vice president joe biden. >> biden deserted you. he's not from pennsylvania. i guess he was born here, but he left you, folks. he left you for another state. >> reporter: over the weekend, biden kicked off his campaign in philadelphia. >> single most important thing we have to accomplish is defeat donald trump. >> reporter: a recent quinnipiac university poll shows in pennsylvania, the president is trailing several democrats, including biden and bernie sanders. earlier monday, mr. trump said the numbers don't phase him.
7:12 am
>> i think we're doing very well in pennsylvania. we won it last time. >> reporter: one former campaign official tells me biden is the only democrat who could steal votes away from the president in the rust belt, but he is also confident biden will fizzle out. gayle, others are not so sure and point to biden's ability to sway places in the heartland, among the president's base supporters. >> thank you, weijia. biden's numbers keep climbing. thank you very much. federal judge is ordering president trump to turn over his financial records to congress. the ruling is in response to a power play by the president to deflect investigations led by congressional democrats. nancy cordes is on capitol hill with more on this story. nancy, what does this mean? will the documents be turned over? >> reporter: it looks like they're going to be unless the president wins an appeal. this is very significant, gayle, because it is the first federal court ruling in this fight between the white house and congressional democrats. it is a defeat for the president, who has vowed to ignore all congressional
7:13 am
subpoenas. in this case, democrats had subpoenaed years of the president's financial records, from mazars usa, his long-time accounting first. democrats want the records to investigate whether the president committed crimines before taking office. the president called the ruling crazy and vowed to appeal. >> nancy, on that point of congress congress' power to investigate, they subpoenaed former white house counsel don mcgahn to testify today. does it look like that's going to happen? >> reporter: nope. he will be a no-show, anthony. according to his lawyers, he is following the president's directive here, and he is going to defy this subpoena. in response, the committee's chairman, jerry nadler, said his committee is going to hold mcgahn in contempt of congress. the reason democrats want mcgahn to testify so badly is because they're looking into whether the president obstructed justice. remember, mcgahn told investiga investigators the president tried to get him to shut down
7:14 am
the probe by special counsel robert mueller more than once. in another headache, by the way, for the president, transcripts were released yesterday of two interviews that the house intelligence committee conducted with the president's former lawyer and fixer, michael cohen, earlier this year. cohen, interestingly, told lawmakers that trump attorney, jay sekulow, encouraged him to lie about efforts to secure a trump tower moscow deal during the 2016 campaign. now, here's why this matters. the president repeatedly said he had no business dealings with russia during the campaign. but, according to cohen, the negotiations continued into june 2016. cohen, you'll recall, initially followed the president's lead back in 2017, but then changed his testimony after he was convicted for lying to congress. sekulow is hitting back, saying that it defies logic, to believe anything that cohen has to say. anthony? >> nancy, thank you. u.s. customs and border protection confirms a 16-year-old from guatemala died
7:15 am
in custody. an official says 16-year-old carlos gregorio vazquez was found unresponsive at a texas facility yesterday. he had been prescribed tamiflu sunday after complaining he didn't feel well. the boy had been taken into custody about a week ago. he is the fifth guatemalan child held by the u.s. to die since december. in our next half hour, only on "cbs this morning," we look at overcrowding at border facilities and the flights used to move undocumented migrants from the southern border. the number of confirmed measles cases in the u.s. has jumped to 880 as the largest outbreak in 25 years continues to escalate. 24 states are now affected, with oklahoma joining the list. the cdc reported 41 new cases nationwide last week. the majority were here in new york, which is seeing the most intense outbreak, largely in orthodox jewish communities.
7:16 am
experts say the virus has spread among school-aged children, whose parents declined to give them the vaccine. >> experts say if you don't have the vaccine, get it. >> they do. a transgender woman brutally attacked in texas last month was found shot and killed over the weekend. video from april's assault shows several men beating the woman in a dallas parking lot. cbs this morning investigative correspondent anna werner has been following this. >> many are mourning booker's death. kamala harris, elizabeth warren, and pete buttigieg are calling for action, while beto o'rourke tweeted transgender woman of color across america deserve better. >> this time, it was me. the next time, it could be someone else. close to you. >> reporter: less than a month after speaking out about her attack, booker was found shot to death in a dallas neighborhood. >> upon arrival, officers found the complainant lying face down in the street, deceased from
7:17 am
homicidal violence. >> reporter: booker's previous assault in april was captured on cell phone video. the 23-year-old told authorities she was beaten following a minor traffic accident, and said her attackers used homophobic slurs. authorities charged edward thomas with aggravated assault, although it was flagged as a hate crime, gender identity is not listed under texas' hate crime statue. at this point, police have not connected that attack to booker's murder. her father hopes it wasn't a targeted killing. >> i pray that it wasn't. because i don't want to see nobody's child go through any of this. nobody's family. >> everywhere we go, she was picked on because she's transgender. >> reporter: advocacy groups say attacks on transgender people in the u.s. are on the rise. last year, the human rights campaign tracked at least 26 deaths due to fatal violence. the majority of victims were black transgender women. experts say, as shocking as
7:18 am
numbers are, the number of victims could be even higher. >> often, they will remain silent. the data we have is based on the folks who reported. we don't know about the folks who suffer in silence. >> the man accused of beating booker last month is out of jail, but police say there is nothing to connect him to booker's death. the human rights campaign says booker is the fifth transgender person killed in 2019. >> important point there at the end, there are a lot of these cases that just don't get reported. abuse in these instances. >> talking about people being frightened into silence. >> when we first saw the video of booker and the beating, it is very interesting, they don't know if there is a connection between that case and the guy who is now out. >> right. that's what thatey are saying, they don't know if there is a connection. >> thank you. upsetting story. cbs got an inside look at the treasures inside the archives. how high school students are

7:32 am
overcrowded with migrants. majority of migrants coming over the border are family units -- parents with children. as these facilities get overcrowded, immigration officials are now turning to the sky and we got a firsthand look. this is the next step in a long journey for around 135 migrants. the men, women and children are boarding a plane in brownsville, texas. when we arrived at the airport, buses were lined up. each packed with more than 40 migrants. the facility where they were originally being held is overcrowded. we blurred everyone's face to protect their identities. we're starting to see some family units. moms, dads and younger kids, from here, they're checking their pockets to see if they have any in them. from there, that plane will take off and take them to a destination where they will be further processed. the migrants don't know where they are going.

e-harmony and all of the pop love songs and the movies, they suggest it's all about, i wasn't anyone until i found you and you completed me. that's not how it happens. you find somebody, and you figure out how to get on with them, and you become each other's soul mate as you learn them, as you get better at understanding them, as you get better at loving them. this is not hard. there's such simple things you can do. one of the things that research shows that stunned me, if you just learn to say thank you. and it seems to work in two ways. one, the spouse does not feel taken for granted. they feel noticed and seen, even though they're with you every day. and secondly, it changes the perspective. your perspective, because if you look for things to thank them for, it means you can't be taken them for granted and you can't be resentful or become contempttuous, and that's the biggest problem. >> a big deal breaker. i wish i had seen your book when i was younger. i think it's filled with a lot
8:37 am
of very good advice and things that resonated with my. it was interesting where everyone said it takes communication, humor, blah blah, but what i think is so important how you fight. all married couples fight. if they say they're not fighting, they're not telling the truth, but it's how you fight that makes the difference. contempt is really, really key here. >> yeah, it's key, and there's a very simple changes. when you're fighting, try to never say you always, or you never. because then people feel under attack. and then they get defensive, and then wheels come off the bus. it's much better to simply start with i'm having a problem with, or i find it difficult when. >> i like how you said you should say, what i hear you saying is, which is really unrealistic when you're in the battle. >> you say don't do it in the car, don't do it when you're hungry. don't do it just before bed. >> if i try to schedule a fight, i can't do this now, i can pencil you in for 6:00 p.m.,
8:38 am
that's going to be a fight. >> if you do it before bed, you tend to not reach a solution. >> i think it's important not to fight tired. we have learned this from toddlers, this is when they have tantrums. go to bed angry. everything seems simpler and clearer in the morning. >> should you put a fight on hold? >> you can if you say i can't talk about this right now but i want to come back to it, and then you have a history of coming back to it. sometimes it's good to put a fight on hold, but you can't just say i can't deal with it. >> she's not only an expert in the book. married 28 years, two weeks and two days. >> weirdly described like a prison sentence. >> i admired how you talked about your husband. you said i guarantee you, no matter how great your marriage is, one day they will enrage you beyond reason. >> that's familiarity for you. you can't have family without it.

please let the record show, a paper straw has arrived. >> i'm proud of you. >> thank you, brian. >> the government is taking a unique approach to control the record-breaking population of wild horses. there are an estimated 88,000 of them across this country. the american icons are protected by a law passed by congress in 1971, but too many wild mustangs can lead to big problems like starving horses. nikki battiste, who knows how to ride a horse, she's an equestrian, shows us the new effort to find them a home. good morning to you. >> i am a horse lover. there are now 50,000 mustangs in holding pens available for adoption, but the number of people taking one home has hit an all-time low in recent years. that's part of the reason the bureau of land management is now offering to pay you $1,000 to adopt a wild horse. these two male mustangs aren't horsing around. >> it's that time of year. >> breeding season.
8:44 am
>> breeding season. >> they're locked in a battle over the females of the herd. we met gus of the bureau of land management in utah. he told us the rapid reproduction of wild horses is creating a crisis. >> we're estimating there's 88,000 wild horses in america right now. >> and how many can the land sustain? >> 27,000. >> galloping at up to 40 miles per hour in the mountains and plains of utah, these mustangs symbolize freedom. >> freedom has its consequences if they're not managed. >> those consequences can be overgrazed land and starving horses. that's why blm rounds up thousands of horses each year, but the humane society and wild horse campaign told cbs news the round-ups can be dangerous. leaving some horses injured or dead. or they might be adopted and illegally sold for slaughter. he says blm spends $50 million
8:45 am
of its $80 million budget on off-range holding costs for the mustangs they gather. >> we're almost approaching $2,000 to hold a horse for one year. >> so blm did some simple math. rather than pay $2,000 to care for a mustang for one year, they'll pay $1,000 to someone willing to adopt and care for a mustang over its lifetime. do you worry about people who say hey, wait a second, i'm going to get one of those mustangs, take $1,000, and take it to a slaughterhouse? or abuse it? >> you have to say you have to be concerned about that. >> so if an adopted horse after a year is abused and you hear about it, you can't take it back? >> if the horse is adopted and it's titled and we hear about an abuse case, we immediately reach out to the local humane group. >> we visited an adoption in livingston, texas. >> $1,000 for a horse. what a good incentive. >> where rebecca brought her 11-year-old granddaughter abbey. >> you know, mustangs don't let many people pet them. >> this one is a special horse.
8:46 am
>> to qualify, adopters must have enough space for a horse and no history of animal abuse. >> anybody else interested in te gelding in pen 6? >> those approved get a completely wild horse and $500 up front. the other $500 comes one year later. >> it's beneficial, but it's not why we're here. i can see why they're doing it, because it gives more people to take a chance on a wild horse. >> debra and michael are taking home their first mustang. >> what are you looking for? >> i look at their eyes, see if they make contact with you. >> rebecca plans to spend her $1,000 payment on a trainer and horse supplies. >> let me get you your package together. >> yes. >> our husbands can't get upset with us because we're actually bringing home money. >> when you see this kind of human horse connection. >> the horse picks you. >> the horse picks you. >> it doesn't really seem the money matters at all. >> i just think it's about finding a home.
8:47 am
i feel like i'm helping. you know. >> the maximum number of wild horses you can be paid to take is four. blm says adoptions have gone up nearly 40% since the $1,000 incentive began in march. but the humane society and american wild horse campaign say blm needs to focus its budget on fertility control. and that was my first time seeing mustangs in the flesh, and they're absolutely beautiful. >> in the meantime, those adoptions will go up more after looking at the piece. you know you're helping the horse, and they're such majestic creatures, which you know well. >> i grew up riding. >> you were a nationally ranked equestrian. >> i did equestrian show jumping. my dad put me on a horse when i was 3. it was his dream to see mustangs, i took him on the shoot with me. >> and more importantly, you rode a horse in your wedding. >> i did. >> we have a picture. >> side saddle because my dress was so tight.
8:48 am
>> i love it the horse is white, too. >> not a wild horse. >> that dolly. i rented her because the horse i ride is far too wild. >> she is downplaying because she rode for 15 years and was ranked nationally number two. >> my uncle adopted a wild mustang, trained it, and it's a beautiful horse. loves it. >> the two people in the story, their mustangs are doing very well. >> thank you. before we go, we'll show you the special way staff at st. jude's children's research hospital celebrated with one little boy after he was found to be cancer free. we love hearing that. we will be right back.
