7:04 am
first they're here to showcase it later in our "saturday session." our top story this morning, the deadly and destructive flooding in west virginia. the death toll there has climbed to 23 and is expected to increase. west virginia's governor has called in hundreds of national guardsmen to help with search and rescue efforts. >> the flooding destroyed several homes. some torn from foundations and carried away by the swollen rivers and lakes. the trouble began on thursday from heavy rains. on friday, the body of a 4-year-old boy was recovered after he was swept away in floodwaters just outside his home. kris van cleave has more from the hard-hit community of white sulfur springs. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. you can see the damage the howard creek did when it was raging. debris is scattered as far as i can see. homes have been destroyed, and police here in greenbriar county say the bulk of those people who died in this storm lived here.
7:05 am
>> this is ridiculous. >> reporter: this is all that's left of chad abner's home. it's completely gone, swept away by raging floodwaters thursday night that tore through west virginia seemingly out of nowhere. pieces of the home next door ended up blocks away on the city's ball field. >> i figured it would be something left. you know, something standing, but there's nothing. >> right there. >> reporter: this is vicky witt's home. the flood ripped apart her neighbor's house and sent it crashing into hers. >> we got out. so it's -- that's all that matters. >> reporter: across the state, at least 100 homes have been seriously damaged or destroyed. it appears the river took over this mobile home park, and this house is resting partially in the street next to overturned cars. roads have been ripped apart, and tens of thousands were without power. in just this one neighborhood in the small community of white sulfur springs, we counted more than a dozen homes destroyed.
7:06 am
city police and paramedics spent friday going door to door for survivors or worse. >> everyone knew it was going rain, but no one knew it was going to be as devastating as it was. >> reporter: mayor lloyd hanes. >> i can't describe how heartbreaking it was. when the water's rushing toward you and there's nothing you can do to help people. >> reporter: at least four of the dead are city residents who were pulled from their homes into howard creek. do you feel lucky to be alive? >> oh, yes, very lucky. >> reporter: mother of five nicole lewis was nearly one of them. she managed to grab hold of this tree and withstand the punishing current for three hours. that had to be a tremendous amount of strength. how did you do that? >> i don't know. i just prayed to god and kept thinking about my kids. i had people here talking to me, you know, saying they much ca-- saying they were calling to get help. i held on. there was a couple time that i thought i was gone. >> reporter: the national weather service aexpected the
7:07 am
rivers in west virginia to crest overnight. the creek here has been dropping for about the last 24 hours. so focus increasingly on the cleanup here. still, when you look at the 23 people dead, that's more than the people killed by tornadoes and lightning so far this year combined. >> so much devastation, kris van cleave in white sulfur springs, west virginia. thank you very much. two people are dead after they tried to flee california's largest wildfire of the year. the fire, which is only 5% contained, is in kern county, 40 miles northeast of bakersfield. it's been burning since thursday. about 30,000 acres have been destroyed including 80 homes. carter evans has more from lake isabella, a community just on the edge of the fire. carter, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. when this fire started on thursday, it just exploded, and flames ripped through communities like there so fast that firefighters couldn't keep up. that's why so many homes like
7:08 am
this were just burned to the ground. an inferno of destruction tore through rural mountain communities near lake isabella, overwhelming firefighters as home after home went up in flames. >> it was my grandparents' home. i grew up in that house, and not even the things inside of it -- it's something you can't replace. >> reporter: the fire caused propane tienks explode and power lines -- tanks to explode and power lines were destroyed. as the fast-moving flames spread, two people were killed. >> two people who we believe were trying to escape the fire. they had gotten out of their home and apparently were overcome with smoke. >> reporter: some 800 firefighters are attacking the wind-whipped flames. louie garcia saw no one when the flames engulfed his home. >> the house next door was engulfed. just a wall of fire. couldn't hardly breathe or see. >> reporter: his neighbors came to the rescue, climbing on his
7:09 am
roof with garden hoses. if your neighbors hadn't pitched in, if you hadn't hosed down the industries -- >> i don't think i'd have a house today. >> reporter: this is the most destructive fire in a week that's seen drought-stricken california hit with several major wildfires. >> we're using hand crews, bulldozers, air tankers, helicopters, everything in our arsenal to stop this massive devastating wild land fire. >> reporter: the two deaths are being treated as a homicide until arson can be ruled out as a cause of the fire. authorities are bringing in cadaver dogs. they're going to go through rubble like this searching to see if there are any more fatalities. the weather this weekend is expected to be hotter and windier. anthony? >> not good news. thank you very much. lake isabella, california. now to the worldwide fallout from the uk's decision to leave the european union. yesterday markets plummeted after 52% of the british electorate voted to break free.
7:10 am
many believe the shock waves will lead to a breakup of other parts of great britain and possibly a departure of countries from the eu. mark phillips is outside britain's parliament in london with the latest on the dramatic decision. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. it's been a day since this momentous vote, and the dust has begun to settle. frankly, nothing looks more clear today than it did yesterday. this brexit vote isn't the end of a process, it's the beginning. >> thank you very much. >> reporter: when david cameron announced that he was quitting and that negotiations on leaving the eu could wait until his successor was chosen in october, it may have been just another example of the wishful thinking that has characterized this debate. in brussels, they take the view you would expect of interstated partner oompt -- of a jilted partner. this won't be an amicable divorce, the president has said. it wasn't a very hard affair to begin with. the divorce should start now.
7:11 am
>> we now expect the united kingdom government to give effect to this decision of the british people as soon as possible. however painful that process may be. >> reporter: david cameron had gambled and lost. he managed to turn a division over newspaper his own party into a revolutionary event in british and european history. now he's being called a zombie prime minister, a dead man walking, and there are already murmurings in the party that he should go sooner. the leading candidate for the job, undeclared so far, is boris johnson, the former mayor of london. yet she deeply unpopular now in the capital which voted strongly to stay in the eu. [ booing ] >> reporter: there may have been elation on the winning side, but there's no sense of urge see it negotiate a quick divorce. that is not the case in europe
7:12 am
where france's francois hollande and angela merkel said if britain wants to go, it should go sooner rather than later and that it won't get a quick sweetheart new trade deal. the last thing the eu wants is to offer encouragement to anti-eu movements in other european countries. like the song social securiays, subpoena hard to do. >> sure is. joining us for more on the breakup, managing editor of "the financial times." >> good morning. >> we're hearing already, we're seeing already some friction here between europe and britain in terms of how fast we actually unravel this thing. >> absolutely. what happened on thursday night is not the end of the story. it's barely even the beginning. as anyone who's been through a bad divorce knows, it always takes a lot longer than you expect, is more costly and complicated, and usually a lot
7:13 am
more acrimonious. >> speaking of the long-term fallout that we don't know, we heard mention of populist rumblings in other countries. could there be more countries considering an exit? are we -- should we were a domino effect? >> there could absolutely be a domino effect. the two things francois hollande did yesterday was firstly warn the uk that they had to basically not expect a sweetheart deal. secondly, he's going to meet the head of the french nationalist party. she is very popular right now. one of the amazing things that people have ignored is actually if you take a poll of the population, the european union is less popular in france than it is in the uk. >> wow. >> what people in the markets are talking about is not just brexit but further down the road there could be the risk of frexit. >> right. >> if you're -- all of this creates a massive amount of uncertainty as issues come up and have to be resolved. that could take months, years at this point.
7:14 am
? -- this point. if you're holding stocks in the united states, what do you do? >> take a deep breath and relax. one thing we've learned from lehman brothers or the flash crash is when you have turmoil, that's the worst moment to start panicking. y yes, on friday the dow fell, the treasury yield fell sharply. what's striking is what did not happen which is the markets didn't freeze up. we haven't seen a jam or panic. it seems that central bankers and investors have learned some of the lessons of the lehman brothers crisis. and practice makes perfect in terms of dealing with these shocks. people should stay calm. >> so if you're thinking about your olympics to, if you're a low-grade investor like me -- >> don't tried this weekend. go to the beach, sunshine the enjoy, take a deep breath. realize this is a slow process.
7:15 am
yes, it's going to have economic and political dominoes potentially, but we've got a lot to play for. >> thank you very much. >> thank you. the aftershocks of britain's decision to leave the european union are being felt here in the u.s. president obama as well as the two candidates battling to replace him all weighed in on the decision on friday. errol barnett has more from our washington bureau. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. yeah, politicians in america have been quick to say that thursday's big votes won't affect the so-called special relationship between the u.s. and uk. beyond that, reaction has been varied. democrats mostly oppose the so-called brexit, have warned about the hurdles ahead. many republicans have hailed the vote. >> i do think that yesterday's vote speaks to the ongoing change and challenges that are raised by globalization. >> reporter: while on a trip to california, president obama praised the efforts of his good
7:16 am
friend prime minister david cameron and vowed that ties with the uk would remain strong. >> while the relationship with the uk and eu will change, what will not change is the special relationship between our two nations. that will endure. >> reporter: a subtle change from april when president obama met with cameron in london. >> our focus is in negotiating with a big block of the european union to get a trade agreement done. uk is going to be in the back of the queue. >> reporter: candidates vying to replace the president had mixed reactions. in a statement, hillary clinton cautioned that "this time of uncertainty only underscores the need for calm, steady, experienced leadership." adding, "the u.s. needs to pull together, not tear each other down." >> i love to see people take their country back. that's really what's happening in the united states. >> reporter: speaking at the opening of a new golf course in scotland, republican donald trump adulted the anti-immigration -- adopted the
7:17 am
anti-immigration language of the pro-brexit campaign, sending out this fund-raising pitch praising uk voters for reasserting control over their borders and promising "we're going to do the exact same thing to election day day." >> you're going to let people into your country that you want. people you don't want or you don't think are going to be appropriate or good for the country, you're not going to have to take. >> reporter: how relations between the u.s. and the uk will change is unclear. new agreements need to be negotiated, of course. and u.s. officials may want to make that process a bit more difficult to discourage other countries from following britain out of the eu. meanwhile, eu nations meeting this morning want all of this to happen quickly. anthony? >> errol barnett in washington. thanks. joining us to discuss the impact of the brexit vote on american politics is "washington post" columnist katherine wa rampel. good morning. >> good morning. >> when you look at what voters
7:18 am
were saying, the voter in britain who vote to leave, a lot of the same issues on the table in the u.s. what can we take from this if anything? >> i think there's a lot of similarity between the voter bases. those who vote leave in the uk and the people who are pro-trump here. i don't want to oversimplify things too much, but to a large extent, they're white working class voters who feel left behind by globalation, they're anti-elite and suspicious of those who have been in power, the establishment and experts because they think they have not prescribed the right solutions to the economic troubles of their sun. -- their country. >> you said you felt the vote in britain was a protest vote versus a vote over policy. do you think that's something we're seeing here, too? donald trump has identified parallels. and hillary clinton's criticized him for being without substance. what do you think? >> i think that's absolutely true. i think a large part of the attraction to donald trump is he is a sort of down with the establishment, down with the experts, down with political
7:19 am
correctness. he's kind of a middle finger, if you will, to those in power for a long time. while he does have some policy position that's are somewhat fixed, many change from day to day which is why i think the attraction to him is less driven by the actual policies he proposes rather than his personality and swagger. >> we are weeks away from the republican convention. a lot of the establishment is not showing up for the convention. what do you think the impact on trump's campaign from that is going to be? >> it could if different ways. on the one hand, his campaign has been struggling. they don't have much in terms of infrastructure, staff, or money. they need to rely on the gop's established apparatus in terms of fund-raising and organizing and getting out the vote. if he doesn't have those establishment people behind him and their vast networks of donors and volunteers and foot soldiers, that is damaging to him. on the other hand, he can always
7:20 am
spin this saying well, clearly that indicates that i'm different, i'm going shake things up, and i'm in departure from what everyone hates. as a practical matter, it's damaging to him. as an image matter, maybe it's enhancing. >> the american population they have now another option, the libertarian option. gary johnson, former governor of new mexico, who does he take votes away from do you think? >> the conventional wisdom had been that he was taking votes away from donald trump because there were a lot of disaffected conservatives who felt like donald trump did not represent their brand of conservatism. the more recent poll data has shown that he would take voters away from both candidates because there are a lot of independent who's feel strongly that they dislike hillary clinton. they hate trump, but they're also not so fond of hillary clinton. they're looking for a third option. a bit of a toss-up. >> thank you very much. >> thank you. tomorrow morning on "face the nation," john dickerson's guests will include former
7:21 am
republican presidential candidate senator mash -- marco rubio. time to show some headlines. the "detroit free press" says the centers for disease control found lead levels in children's blood jumped dramatically in flint, michigan, after the city switched its water supply source. the cdc says during the year and a half the city was using flint river for its water, the level of lead in a child's planned parenthood was 50% higher than the switch in 2014.

2015 saw a record number of auto recalls. maybe you were affected. more than 51 million vehicles were affected. many had potentially dangerous defects. >> owners of recalled vehicle are alerted by mail. what about used cars on lots? annie westerner investigators. if you see one you like -- >> reporter: we're on an undercover shopping trip in new jersey to see what salespeople tell us about used cars with unrepaired safety recalls. some of which have seriously injured drivers. >> any recalls, anything pertaining to the vehicle? >> any issue, we are responsible. >> reporter: take this vehicle at premiere auto group of new jersey. the federal website that tracks recalls says it has a defective
7:31 am
airbag. when we asked a salesperson named naji about recalls, he told us -- >> we don't have this problem. >> reporter: at this penski acura dealership, we found this acura still unrepaired. salesperson nicole told us -- >> we won't sell anything that will give us a bad reputation. >> reporter: at this auto lernsd, a salesman -- lenders, a salesman named chris admit his dealership sells cars with the airbag defects but told us not to worry. >> only a few people killed by it, but they don't know what's causing it. >> reporter: he's wrong. at least 11 people have died due to airbags, and regulators found the cause was a problem with a volatile chemical compound. at dealerships around the country, we found used cars with not only those recalled airbags but other serious safety defects being sold. everything from brake corrosion
7:32 am
to faulty ignitions to rollaway hazards. clarence ditlow heads the auto safety commission -- >> any recall can lead to a crash, death, or injury. you should never buy a used car that has an outstanding safety recall in it. >> reporter: problem is, there is no federal through requires used car dealers to inform but unrepaired safety recalls on the cars they're selling. these defects can prove tragic. >> i lost my best friend. i lost my child. in my mind, it was something that was preventable. >> reporter: a takata airbag explosion took the life of alexander brangman's 26-year-old daughter jewel in a minor car accident in 2014. the driver's side airbag exploded. >> it was a fender-bender. she should have walked away. if you can imagine a hand grenade, it hit her carotid
7:33 am
artery. she bled out. she lost nine pints of blood. she coded three times. roar her car was a -- >> reporter: her car was a rental. but a used car buyer could be liable. we wanted to know if some of the sal salespeople we had spoken to had comment. >> i'm not sure if i can talk on camera. >> reporter: at auto lenders, corporate said before selling a car they share the car facts report including title history and recall information with all buyers. the other dealers told us they disclose recalls, too, but ditlow who watched the video is skeptical. >> they may have a stack of papers. and somewhere it might say it. but if you go to the average used car dealer, they're not going to say, look, this car has an outstanding safety recall, you need to get it fixed.
7:34 am
>> reporter: at the acura dealership, we asked -- did you know that this car has an open airbag recall? >> i did not. >> reporter: should that car be out there? >> no, it should not if it does. >> reporter: that dealership later told us it was a mistake, and they had pulled the car from the lot. and remember the dealership with the bmw x-5 with the airbag recall? >> my name's anna werner, i'm with cbs news -- the manager told us he would have checked for any recalls before we bought the car. that doesn't stop him from selling it. do you feel like they're safe with the sflaul. >> they're not safe -- that recall? >> they're not safe, but you have to ask bmw how they let this car stay on the road. >> reporter: for "cbs this morning saturday," anna werner. >> all the dealers told us that had we gone further in the buying process, they would have disclosed the unrepaired safety recalls. two said they do not sell cars with the airbag recall and hold
7:35 am
them back but couldn't explain how they wound up for sale on their lots. a major used car dealership association told us a new law won't solve this problem, and that i-- that it's auto manufacturers and the government that need to take responsibility. they say the auto dealers are as much victims as the customers. coming up, the science of sport. the u.s. olympic team gains an important advantage from the latest developments in technology. we'll show you how. first, next medical news in morning roads including protecting children from lead poisoning. doctors holly phillips and

7:39 am
time for "morning rounds" with cbs contributor dr. holly phillips and pediatrician melissa goldstein. this week the american academy of pediatrics released new recommendations urging action to protect kids from a critical health threat. how big is the problem? >> this is a significant problem. in a way, it's a bit of a surprise. it's a surprise because we've spent the last couple of decades celebrating the drop in lead levels in kids. we saw this as a big public success story, which it was. that drop in lead levels was because of legislation which took lead out of gasoline, and most importantly out of paint, a huge source of exposure for kids. on the other side of it, continued research has found even very low levels of lead can have permanent effects on kids. low levels of exposure, we see
7:40 am
behavior problems, we can see problems with attention, lower i.q. scores. so really what the american academy of pediatrics wants us to know is that the only safe level of lead is zero. >> i think the flint water crisis brought this to the forefront. people thought old pipes were the sources. you brought up paint. i live in a 100-year-old house. 100 years ago they weren't worried about lead in paint. >> it's interesting because as holly said, there hasn't been -- lead paint is not being used in u.s. homes anymore and hasn't been since the 1970s. but lead paint remains the number-one cause of lead exposure to children. other sources are old toys, toys produced or manufactured abroad where lead regulations are poor. we find that lead pipes exist in some old buildings. and interestingly, something we don't realize, that adults in certain occupations and hobbies can actually bring home lead
7:41 am
particles on their clothing. home remodelers, auto repair shops, stained glass making or pottery. these are ways that kids can be additionally exposed to lead. >> what are some of the suggestions for reducing exposure? >> you know, the american academy of pediatrics have a number of ways to look at this. monitoring kids at high risk is really at the top of their list. those kids would be people who live in areas where 25% or more of the housing was built before 1960. there could be lead paint or pipes. areas where kids can be exposed. the other issue is they want to focus on tightening federal standards of what's acceptable for lead in our environment. dust, soil, water, and there's a real focus on lowering lead levels in drinking water and drinking fountains at schools. they want to try and get rid of it as much as we can. >> all right. moving on to something more uplifting. summertime is here, right? the start of the summer is
7:42 am
officially in the books. for many kids, that means one thing -- summer camp. we have some tips for keeping your kids healthy and safe while they are away from home. melissa, often you think of maybe a leg break, a kid falling out of a tree. prevention, what you can do before they go, is important -- vaccines. >> sure. absolutely. most important thing is to make sure that your routine vaccines are up to date. i'm talking about tetanus, muse else, mumps, chickenpox. those are routine vaccines. if you're going finish checkups, your -- going for checkups, your pediatrician is looking at that. one that's overlook sudden meningitis vaccines. this is a bad bacteria that can affect the brain, spinal cord, blood, and can be potentially fatal. the good news is that we have a vaccine for this. and that vaccine covers the most common strains of this meningitis bacteria. the vaccine is routinely recommended for children 11 to
7:43 am
18-years-old. that's great. the problem is there are recommendations for kids over 2 and at risk. what does at risk mean? at risk can mean anyone living in close quarters. the military would be an example. college dorms is an example. and the sleep-away camp cabin. if your child is less than 11 but going to sleep-away camp, and many children are starting younger, 7, 8 years old, make sure they get the shot before they start their summer activities. >> one reason i hated summer camp -- bug bites. what are the keys to keeping bugs away? >> sure. we have to keep in mind both mosquitoes and ticks can transmit the same dangerous illnesses to kids as they can to adults. the most effective way to prevent bites is to cover up. long sleeves, long pants, especially at dusk or if you're going into the wooded areas. also, tuck the pants into socks. my 7-year-old may never forget me for doing this to her since it's unfashionable. that's important, as well.

remember bug spray with deet, 20% is safe and effective. there are other bug spray options, but they're probably not effective against ticks and against many mosquito. so the bug spray with deet is fine. you can spray it on their clothes. if you want it on their skin, rub it on your hands and put it on them. try and avoid getting it in their mouths. >> i remember the line was leaves of three, leave it be, right? once i learned that, i was totally paranoid. every leaf looked like it had three. that's a line they give you about poison ivy, right. that's what you should avoid. is that still a good rule of thumb? >> i think in some cases, it is a good pearl. it's really only true for poison ivy and poison oak. those do tend to have three leaves on a short stomach. poison assume action, also a problem -- sumac, also a problem, has leaves in clusters of 7 to 13. that's not a terribly useful phrase. >> unless you're a got an -- a
