7:07 am
this latest storm which has dropped snow and ice from oregon to ohio and as far south as texas isn't weather you would typically expect this time of year. people who would normally spend their days raking and bagging leaves have been shoveling in columbus. crews are out trying to clear roads. and although many of the streets have been treated in preparation for the storm, the precipitation paired with the plummeting temperatures created slippery driving conditions. >> whoa. i've got a wreck that just happened. >> across the wide ranging storm system, cars and trucks peppered the sides of highways, the results of slick snow-covered roads. the iconic arch was covered in layers of snow. in the northeast, mostly in the form of rain. temperatures will settle into the region in the coming days
7:08 am
with lows to hover into the 20s. even portions of the deep south will feel the chill. now temperatures here are expected to sink to near single digits. that means crews will be out to try to prepare roads to make sure they don't freeze over. charlie? >> tino, thanks. the stormy weather will be replaced by bitter cold starting tomorrow. danielle niles from our boston station wbz is tracking conditions across the country. good morning. >> good morning, charlie. good morning, everybody. let's start across the southeast. tornado warnings in the florida band stretched up through southwest georgia and eastern alabama with this line of severe weather that will track east. that will bring a chance for damaging wind gusts, heavy rain, isolated tornadoes through the afternoon through the coastline of carolina and georgia as well. at a same time we're tracking

7:10 am
this enhanced. >> what happened? >> a suit filed in may by former nfl players, some of them retired detailing pretty horrifying practices with prescription drugs, heavy-duty painkillers like percocet and perk dan passed out on team planes by trainers not authorized to hand it out, that sort of thing. >> you guys have had an incredible investigation about the use of these opioids by nfl players. >> yes. we did a five-party series last year with my partner where they medicate players to get them back on the field. it's very possible that the dea's interest in this is they think the nfl is creating addicts. >> how soon would they know and who would be responsible?
7:11 am
the people who take them or those who prescribed it? >> they have strict laws on who is allowed to transport it. dispense it. nfl trainers are not allowed to pass out medications and yet there's a lot of evidence they're doing that. it doesn't matter if the players want the meds, the doctors aren't pup supported to given them. >> one of the little known things that came out yesterday is the dea is working with the district attorney's office, a very heavy hitting prestigious arm of the justice department. so i think it's a month-long investigation. our information is that they're not at the start or at the end. they're in the middle. >> thank you. thank you, sally. >> sure. >> good to see you. in ferguson, moye, they're preparing for the possibility of more violence. grand jury is considering charges against officer darren

7:14 am
indict the officer responsible for shooting the unarmed teen. >> there have been several days for training at every level. they're trying to understand what they can and cannot do. >> and ferguson police chief tom jackson says if officer brown is not indicted by that grand jury, he will be cleared to return to work. norah? >> all right, michelle. thank you. pope francis this morning announced he'll make his first trip to the united states as head of the atlantic church. he'll attend the world mass next september. it could also include a stop in new york city, but plans have not been finalized. this morning the state department is repairing its system since a cyber attack. hackers have hit the white house, the united states post at service and the national weather service.

7:16 am
compromised crime scene. still the wreckage of the plane or what's left of it has been removed to the far land in eastern ukraine. the plan is to take it back to holland where they'll look into the inquiry of the crash. time is proving more difficult on what happened. evidence on the ground points to the plane having been shot down by a surface-to-air missile. it's been removed perhaps by scavengers, perhaps those trying to -- >> they're going to do a forensic analysis of the metal to try to detect explosive residue on their. so they even going to do with what they have. it might be quite limited. >> an examination showed it to be peppered with holds made by high velocity shrapnel of the
7:17 am
sort that would come from a surface-to-air missile. nearby footage has now emerged showing the immediate aftermath of the crash. the lives of those on malaysia air flight 350 died. it shows it was not shut down by one of our their missiles but bial jet. examining the wreckage of the plane may be able to determine exactly what hit in. norah? >> all right, mark. thank you. the cruise ship is on its way. it had to be thoroughly cleaned in california. it began after a month long trip to hawaii and ta hee tee. in april more than 100 people

8:04 am
picture. so the grand jur will see the surveillance video of the robbery. the grand jury will know that there was a dispatch describing the robbers. we don't know if he heard the dispatch. we don't know if he was offering to help. >> what if the grand jury doesn't indict this officer? >> we have to look at what their options are, norah. with very four charges here. murder in the first degree, highly unlikely. murder in the second degree, ultimately not likely because he has the defense of being a accomplish but you have man slaug slaughter, voluntary and involuntary and then, of course, self-defense. >> now the brown family is saying, look, there's a discrepancy there.
8:05 am
what does the video say? >> it shows him appearing walking tall. we can't see his face. ultimately when he says he was injured about the eye or the face, the only thing that's going to tell us that is both the photographs of his face, which i assume they have, and certainly he went to the hospital, so there's hospital records. so we'll know if the claims have been greatly exaggerated or not. >> how long does it take the jan grand jury to decide this? >> this is a long grand jury seating. this grand jury is going to be empowered in and of itself to make this decision. it will happen this week. >> thank you, rikki. >> thank you, rikki. we now have new information about the release of americans. james clapper went there and brought home kenneth bae and

8:14 am
sleep. american adults do not get the sleep that they need. but it turns out insomnia is more common in women than in men. great. he's the chief of sleep medicine at brigham & women's hospital and director of sleep medicine at harvard medical school. you come highly credentialed so i'm listening with both ears. norah and i both said we don't get enough sleep. do you, charlie? >> no, but i take naps. >> those are crucial. >> it really is. sleep. the point is you need sleep to be healthy. >> that's correct. >> why the difference between women and men? >> one of the things is the internal clock that controls the timing of sleep runs faster in women than it does in men. it's only about a tenth of an hour, but it adds up. women's clocks are set up an hour, hour and a half earlier than men.
8:15 am
harder to stay awake in the evening. >> why is that. why are women ee's circadian rhm faster? >> we think it has to do with estrogen. >> what are some myths about sleeping? >> there are so many. >> what are three biggest? >> one are that we can power through. we can sleep when we're dead. of course, we'll get there faster if we don't get enough sleep. and another big myth is the concept that when you're driving along the highway, you get highway hypnosis, that's actually falling asleep because you can't sustain alertness. another one is if you're in a situation that's boring, the fact that you fall asleep is because of that and, in fact, it's because you have sleep pressure that's very high. if you're in a boring situation and you've had enough sleep, you
8:16 am
won't fall asleep. >> what will make you sleep better? >> a cool dark place, setting enough time for sleep and trying to have a regular time of sleeping and waking because the brain is going to anticipate if you're going to go to bed, let's say, at 10:00 or 11:00 in the evening. it begins to release the sleep hormone, melatonin so you're sleepy at that time. if you go to bed at 3:00 one day or 10:00 the other it shifts the body i wake up at 4:00 on saturday and sunday. >> you want to sleep in but it's not happening. >> so women have more insomnia than men, but you say men have more sleep apnea than women. why is that? >> that's right. we think it has to do with anatomical differences and where men deposit fat as opposed to women. >> it's in their neck? >> yes. there's only so much real estate in the neck and if you crowd out

the airway you're going to have trouble when you sleep. so one out of three men and one out of six women suffer from disturbed sleep associated with breathing, sleep disordered breathing. but unfortunately because it tends to be viewed as a male dominated disease, women are much less likely to be diagnosed. so one out of ten women compared to men get diagnosed. >> thank you. we appreciate it. >> thank you. and i hope you get more sleep. >> i know. i'm going to try to work on it. thank you. coming up, 30 years after "band-aid," bob geldof got a new mission. he's raising money to fight another crisis. you're watching "cbs this morning." >> announcer: cbs "morning rounds" sponsored by new aleve pm. aleve pm for a better a.m. until. the am. new aleve pm the only one to combine a safe sleep aid

8:34 am
kelly blue book care about in the best buy awards. we want to give people the best choices. i wouldn't say the civic is particular in one area but the combination is just terrific. >> how do you come to these conclusions? >> well, it's a year-long process actually. we started this more than a year ago when we were looking at what 2015 vehicles would be in the marketplace because that's critical. what we were trying to do is help the consumer make good buying decisions so we look at a lot of metrics. kelly blue book is known for things like cost to own, depreciation, fuel costs, maintenance costs. >> speaking of that, people are very interested in electric or hybrid cars. you chose the chevy volt. >> chevy volt was the interesting choice. it wasn't the newest in the segment. a lot of people might scratch their head at that. what we found is the decisions general motors made on that vehicle was to give it a significant amount of all electric range. it can go for something like 35
8:35 am
to 40 miles on pure electric range, but also having a gasoline engine that allows you to use it as a car if you want to go more than 40 miles on a charge is a great combination. it's very limiting we found for many people because you can only go 60, 70 miles on it and then you have to charge it. >> what is e. vv.? what is that? >> electric vehicle. >> oh. sorry. you talk about the luxury cars, the c car? >> it's a small car. >> we limited it because we -- >> a lot of people would expect maybe the bmw 3 series be the winner there and the c class is terrific inside and out. it is really a cool car. >> but the corvette is also selected, isn't it? >> absolutely. >> it's a cool car. >> it is a cool car.

8:43 am
if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto®, watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto® if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto®, tell your doctor about any conditions such as kidney, liver, or bleeding problems. xarelto® is proven to reduce the risk of dvt and pe, with no regular blood monitoring and no known dietary restrictions. treatment with xarelto® was the right move for me. ask your doctor about xarelto® today.
