7:05 am
not determined the cause of the crash. >> our thoughts are with the little girl and her remaining family. thank you so much. the first storm of the year is expected to bring severe winter weather to a large part of the nation. sub-zero temperatures and dangerous wind chiles are moving through parts of the nation's midsection even bringing snow to lubbock, texas, and there's a larger storm behind it. it's expected to bring snow and ice from the planes to the northeast. let's get more from meteorologist ed curran of our chicago station wbbm-tv. good morning, ed. >> good morning. take a look at how wide the storm stretches here. we see going from texas as you talked about all the way up to wisconsin and over to ohio and over to the east coast. and it's all tracking to the east. and as it continues on its way, we have snow, we have rain we have mixed precip and we do have the threat of icing in some areas. look at this across the entire country. we have winter weather advisories winter storm warnings and even the slight risk of severe for the gulf

coast states. we'll focus on the northeast where we have icing in parts of ohio and kentucky as a freezing rain advisory is there and also icing and snow for the northeast as this winter storm continues to make its way to the east. so we look at sunday as it pulls through the area and wille'll widen back out and show you. this is the next system. as it comes in and brings us snow, it also brings us the cold air you talked about. plunging in for sunday right through midweek leaving some incredible temperatures. look at this, by wednesday, 3 degrees below zero for chicago. get ready for that arctic blast. anthony, vinita? >> ed curran at wbbm-tv in chicago. thank you, ed. now to the search of airasia flight 8501. they have found two parts under
7:07 am
the sea. they think it may be parts of the missing plane. >> the flight crashed two weeks ago. since then 30 bodies have been recovered as well as debris from the plane, but they're still looking for flaen's flight recorders. allen pizzey is in nearby surabaya with the latest. >> reporter: good morning. an image taken by a geological survey ship could provide a real breakthrough in the search for the missing plane. the find was made by an indonesia indonesiaen plan. one of the pieces is about 30 feet long and 15 feet wide. the other is slightly smaller. among the multinational flotilla of ships is the uss sampson which has found at least a dozen bodiesyies and the uss ft. worth. >> i won't comment as to the success of that right now, but
7:08 am
they are using some technology organic to the ship right now. >> reporter: the bodies they pick up are flown to the on-shore headquarters to surabaya surabaya where the airliner took off for what was supposed to be a two-hour flight. the relatives are seeking information and waiting for the news that their loved ones have been identified. doctors have advised them not to reveal bodies but rely on dental records and dna as well as physical objects and clothing. they have set up a special lab next to the morgue to conduct the tests. the family of an 11-year-old held a small and dignified prayer moment when his body was handed over to them at the crisis center. the first identified flight attendant was buried in her hometown last night. indonesian authorities say they had grounded all airasia flights between surabaya and singapore because the company did not have

a license to fly the route on sunday, the day of the crash. anthony, vinita? >> joining us more about the crash is mark rosenker. he's also a former chairman of the national transportation safety board. good morning. >> good morning, anthony. >> what do you make of the new findings, the large objects they even found under the water. >> every day we seem to be making progress including finding bodies. we've found these two large pieces. but until we can put eyes on it until we're able to really understand what it is i don't want to get too excited about it. >> there's been so many high-profile aviation disasters that we're all becoming well versed in what the black box is. we know they'll have conversations on it. where in the plane is the black box located and is there a time limit on this black box? do batteries die? do we have any of that in play? >> the batteries are there to help the pingers. they're there to help the searchers find the devices themselves, and they put out a
7:10 am
signal about once a second and those will operate for about 30 days. so we've got about 24 25 days left in the batteries. but the boxes themselves as we saw on air france 447 can lay on the bottom of the ocean for two years and still when recovered can be brought up with very clear, very good signals. >> they have already recovered several pieces including an emergency door exit slide and what appears to be a window panel. are they likely to get any clues from those? >> those they'll certainly look at and bridge back tong back to a secure area. they'll lay them out and document where they found them but the real answers are going to come from the black boxes. those flight data recorders are a gold mine for the accident investigators. >> we now know there was bad weather and altitude change. do we think weather was the cause of the accident?
7:11 am
>> vinita weather is always a cause of the chain of events. clearly weather is a part of that. but until we can get ahold of the boxes and get the large part where the fuselage is and understand if the aircraft came apart in midair or did it come apart when it was actually in the ocean, we're operating blind. >> but you're encouraged by the process. >> absolutely. this is barely a week when this airplane came down and now we've got 20% of the passengers back we now have a narrowed area of search. we went from an area the size of california now down to 2,000 square miler and we're even getting smaller than that. i think we're going to find the boxes in the weeks to come and we'll find out exactly what happened. >> hopefully some closure for the namelies. mark rosenker thank you so much. north korea is taking action over the hollywood movie. president obama ordered new sanctions on north korean officials and the country's
7:12 am
defense system. it's the first public rae response over the comedy film "the interview." >> this is unprecedented. the u.s. has never imposed sanctions on another nation. chip reid has the latest. >> reporter: it targets three north korean organizations including the government's intelligence agency and the agency that sells weapons to other countries. the sanctions also target ten individuals with ties to those institutions both inside and outside of the country. senior administration officials say these individuals are not directly responsible for the sony cyber attacks but are being sanctioned to put pressure on the north korean government. the sanctions prohibit those ten individuals from dealing with the u.s. financial system and businesses. the administration also plans to encourage u.s. allies to cut off access to those individuals. >> you want us to kill the leader of north korea?
7:13 am
>> yes. >> whaaaat? >> reporter: the response is with regard to the film sony made, "the interview." two are recruited by the cia to assassinate north korean leader kim jong-un. sony did not release the film initially, something the president criticized before his vacation. >> sony's a corporation. it, you know suffered significant damage. there were threated against its employees. i am sympathetic to the concerns that they faced. having said all that yes i think they made a mistake. >> mr. obama also promised them that the u.s. would retaliate. >> we have been working up a range of options. they will be presented to me. i will make a decision on those based on what i believe is
7:14 am
proportional and appropriate to the nature of this crime. >> some cyber security experts have questioned the conclusion of the u.s. government that north korea was behind the attack on sony but the white house is standing by that conclusion. they say those experts don't have access to certain highly classified information that's been obtained by u.s. intelligence agencies. anthony and vinita? >> thousands of people in southern australia have fled their homes for fear of wildfires. high winds and near 100-degree temperatures are hampering their efforts. six homes have been destroyed. hundreds of others threatened. there are no serious injuries. firefighters say it could take several days before fires are brought under control. >> more than a year and a half after the marathon bombing the prime suspect goes on trial monday. >> dzhokhar and his brother

7:16 am
weeks, rikki? >> they're predicting four to six weeks. i think it will take at least two to four weeks. there are a lot of factors. number one, could you sit for a trial that will be three to five months. number two, can you say the pretrial publicity has not prejudiced you and then individual voir dire one by one to depth-qualify a jury. in plain english this is it. if you say you're against the death penalty in principle, you don't believe in the death penalty but you'll follow the law and the judge's instructions you'll be considered a death qualified juror. this takes stand. >> will he take the stand? >> he's certainly not going to take the stand in the guilt phase.
7:17 am
if i were representing him -- and judy clark, by the way, one of the greatest trial lawyers and one of the best death penalty lawyers has had some of the most celebrated cases, the unabomber. she's not going to want him to testify at all unless he would be able to in the penalty phase be able to express remorse and we don't know if he will express remorse. >> right. the witness list rikki, for the prosecution is said to include some 700 names? >> yes. well, the prosecution has put on every conceivable possible witness -- i guess that is redundant -- that could have seen something, heard something had some interest. obviously what we're doing in the guilt phase is showing what happen. so you'll have information about the three people who were killed. you're going to have 260 victims, each of whom are entitled to talk about their injuries. the first responders the
7:18 am
magnificent volunteers who saved people, the doctors. ultimately is it going be anywhere near 700? not a chance. >> still, hearing all those numbers, this is going to be a long trial. rikki klieman, thank you. >> thank you. california has the most undocumented immigrants. the a new law has went into effect that allows them to receive a driver's license. >> reporter: at motor vehicle offices across california yesterday, lines stretched out the door with thousands of undocumented immigrants ss eagerly applied for a driver ice lie sense, some camped overnight. >> we've been waiting for a long time. >> reporter: under the new law they must submit fingerprints and prove identity and state residentcy as well as taking behind the wheal and written

7:37 am
rounds" with cbs correspondent dr. jon lapook and cbs contributor dr. holly phillips. 22 states now report high influenza activity and 15 children have died in this year's outbreak. so what exactly does an epidemic mean? >> right. an epidemic is a scary word. in this setting when we're just using it to describe the flu, it means that a specific percentage of deaths in the u.s. within a period of time are related to the flu or related to pneumonia caused by the flu. in this case it's 6.8%. according to the latest cdc data, we've reached that threshold, which is alarming in part because we often reach epidemic levels of flu, but not this early in the season. the season doesn't peek until january or early february. >> is this southbound severe if an epidemic is somewhat normal? >> it's a little too early to decide how severe if severe the season is going to be.
7:38 am
but there are some causes or reasons for concern. number one, the predominant strain of flew is called h3n2 and this year's flu illness is not perfectly matched to it. >> that's another fact. it's not as effective as it's been in past years. >> so about a third of the current circulating strains of flu are well matched to the vaccine and that may sound horrible, except i spoke to the cdc about it. you've got the third that you're covered for. the other two-thirds, you may still have some part shall protection from the vaccines. there are some drifts away from where it was when the vaccine was chosen. you may still get coverage. the bottom line is you should still get vaccinated. the cdc is recommending anybody 6 months and older to get the shot. >> still better to get the shot. >> yes. emerging technology is giving women more options when
7:39 am
it comes to having babies. jon? >> when women postpone having babies in their late 30s or later on a new technology is allowing them to freeze their eggs. >> reporter: one week before her 30th birthday actress elizabeth higgins clark is taking a dramatic step to preserve her fertility. >> why did you start thinking about saving your eggs? >> i knew that i wanted more time for my career. i thought it would be really nice if i could make it so i could have a baby when my life was ready instead of just because my body is ready. >> there's a gradually growing population of women choosing to do this electively. >> reporter: dr. michael drewes is clark's doctor. >> probably when this comes into its own, it will be more liberating to women than the oral contraceptives were back in the 1960s. >> reporter: as eggs age, the success of fertility procedures
7:40 am
decline. research shows that eggs at age 30 are twice as likely to result in a pregnancy than eggs frozen at 40. one study shows that 80% of women freezing their eggs were older than 35. >> the light goes off for most women when they begin to reach their later 30s, early 40s, and that's when they say, gee, i'm running out of time. unfortunately in most cases they've already largely run out of time. - >> reporter: there are no national figures on how many women have frozen their eggs or returned to use them. the american society for reproductive medicine does not endorse elective egg freezing, saying it may give women false hope and encourage women to delay childbearing. >> what's your reaction to that? >> i don't think my hope is false. i think it gives me a better chance. and i wouldn't tell any woman that she should do this. i think it's a really personal decision that a woman makes with her doctor and her bank account. >> reporter: the procedure costs between $10,000 and $15,000 and another $1,000 a year to keep the eggs frozen.
7:41 am
still clark says it's money well spent. >> is there part of this for you that's slowing down that biological clock that's been ticking? >> yes. it's stopped. and i'll get older, but my eggs will stay the same age, 29 forever. >> jon you said there are no national statistics on this but to we have anything information on how common it is? >> apple and other companies are going to allow it through insurance. i asked dr. drewes who's the doctor. he said he estimated less than 5%. >> well, a new consumer report survey shows people are misinformed about the safety and effectiveness of weight loss supplements.
7:42 am
what did the survey look at? >> it found that supplements for weight loss are incredibly popular. i have patients bring them in all the time and say what do you think about this. 25% try supplements. the down youn side is only 9% of those who use the supplements actually lose weight or keep it off. so they're likely not that effective and those who lose weight and keep it off were also following a strict diet and exercise regimen. >> are there actually regulations for this? we don't know whether what they say is true right? >> absolutely. more of these are treated like food than a supplement. you don't know what's in it. it hasn't been fda-approved. you may say i'm going go for this active agreement. that active ingredient may not even be there. it's caveat emptor let the buyer beware. >> you have to be your own
