korean-american? does one create one's own world? i don't know if i'm any smarter than when i came to k-town in the middle of the night and found a delicious slab of america that i never thought was there, but i'm trying to figure it out. \ s ice, rain, and freezing temperatures gripping the northwest as gooding sinks backyards. despite the storm stem, the northeast is enjoy spring in december. >>. the conflict in south sudan has now become an american problem when u.s. military members there were fired upon and injured, they had to abort their rescue mission. so, the question now, how to evacuate the stranded american civilians. and it is a new day in
canada after the supreme court ruled unanimously to strike down prostitution laws. what the decision means for one of the oldest professions. "your new day" starts right now. good morning, everyone. thanks for waking up with us on sunday morning, i'm pamela brown. >> i'm victor blackwell. well, let me just say this off the top. i feel great. i'm breathing well. i feel good. it's just that, you know -- >> just the voice. >> just the voice. when you live alone, you don't speak to anyone in the morning. i discovered this when i came into work. >> very anchormanesque. >> really? "anchorman it 2" december 24th. >> i'm here to capture -- >> thank you very much. let's start with the weather. that's the talker. it's deadly. the weather is still grinding its way across the country and already causing serious problems. >> possible tornadoes in arkansas carved a path of
destruction four days before christmas and mississippi, four storms are blamed for killing two people. let's go further west. an ice storm left branches frozen in mid-air and forced air travelers to scramble to rebook canceled flights. some places got more than a foot of snow. meantime unusually warm temperatures to the north led to dangerous flooding there. i take a look at the strange weather mix still sweeping the country. the first day of winter brought a massive storming paing snow, rain, ice and floods. an official in mississippi said two people were killed and several injured of aa line of storms moved through the state. in arkansas a possible tornado hurt three people and destroyed three buildings. this one is demolished but everyone survive. >> what is left of the house? >> approximatically nothing, no clothes. christmas gifts of demolished. everything is gone.
>> and blew the windows out of the van, too. >> totalled the van. totalled the van. it's a mess. >> reporter: and parts of the midwest, heavy rains caused flooding in the entire river valley leaving cars, streets and backyards under water. today snow, ice and frising rain was the focus. >> i just got home. i figured throw salt down, beat the ice. >> more than 94 million americans traveling for the holidays, treacherous road conditions from oklahoma, kansas to missouri make driving difficult. but this weather system is getting even stranger. temperatures will feel like spring for much of the east. in new york, bikers, joggers and baby strollers were out in full force to enjoy the unseasonably warm weather. >> i love it. it feels like it's may in december. it's like 60 degrees right now.
it's beautiful. >> not too bad here in atlanta, either, huh? >> not too bad. been a great 24 hours. >> mother nature not making it easy for those trying to get out of town for christmas. >> jennifer grey with more who is affected by travel plans? >> we'll see a lot of rain, but basically going to deal with more snow and ice if you're traveling extreme northern sections of the country. i want to give you a peek from yesterday. these are the storm reports we had. hail reports, severe wind reports, flooding reports and as mentioned a moment ago, we had a couple of tornado reports. you can see one near arkansas and they'll send surveyors out to confirm these but they did indicate three tornado reports from yesterday.
here's the line of showers and storms. you can see on the outskirts of atlanta. big story, we have a lot of snow to the north. around chicago, basically to the north, right around green bay, seeing snow and look at this. we're seeing even ice and freezing rain in northern portions of vermont, new hampshire, upstate new york. if you're traveling to the extreme northern sections, you're going to deal with snow and ice for just one more day. these showers will track to the east for today, like i mentioned before, i think the tornado threat is down today. we'll still see thunderstorms. we could see anywhere from 3 to 5 inches of rain anywhere from atlanta all of the way to charlotte and 2 to 4 inches of rain as you get into portions of virginia and just on the outside of d.c. could see 3 to 6 inches of rain in portions of michigan, maybe even wisconsin. so we are going to see minnesota even, so we'll see some of that as we go through the day today. here's the radar. we're forecasting the storm to
basically set up shop on the east coast, throughout today, should be pushing out by later tomorrow. if you are making travel plans, looks like tomorrow is going to be a much, much better day. today should gradually get better but tomorrow will be even better. look at these temperatures, guys, new york city, 66 today. you'll be feeling like the holiday, 38 on tuesday. >> that's a considerable drop. >> i know. >> jennifer, thanks. overseas to africa, the pentagon is scrambling to get roughly three dozen americans out of the city in south sudan. the fighting trapped them in a u.n. compound in bor. bor, out of civil war is moving dangerously close to civil war itself. four members of the american military are recovering in kenya this morning. they were wounded saturday when their osprey helicopters took ground fire. their mission, to evacuate americans in bor, aborted.
weir now are on the phone with the reporter in sudan. how much danger are they facing? >> reporter: it was undoubtedly a tense night. the aerial option was pretty much the only option. look at geography. in a difficult region. bor is as extreme as you can get. it's up very close to north sudan. very little option to go in by roads. going in by helicopter seemed the safest way to get them out. that was before u.s. helicopters came under fire. these 30-odd americans are working with aid organizations. part of the hugely crucial humanitarian push in south sudan. that all now is unraveling.
the worry is that we're moving closer and closer to what president obama proved. north just in other towns, but other towns have fallen to rebels. the concern is that when you start targeting aid organizations, the only life plan, pretty much, for most civilians in south sudan, and they end up having to be evacuated, it's the people that are left behind in the most difficult of circumstances. >> and we've seen that in conflicts around the world. i also want to ask you to just explain quickly why the south sudanese are now fighting each other? as we mentioned, this country was born out of civil war, maybe at the threshold of civil war itself. why this fight, right why now? >> i guess it is the oldest story. you have a country that's been
incredibly resource rich, but the decades of con splints, people have not managed to set up institution or infrastructure, so it becomes this struggle to get into power. that's the only access people have to fulfill their daily needs. this is one of those countries where people live under $1 a day. when you compound that with this battle for power, and things only continue to get worse. some of the aid organizations we've been talking to on the ground. even they still have definitive numbers for those who are caught in the crossfire. the u.n. said already 600 people have already been killed since the fighting began late this week. >> nima on the phone from sudan this morning. thanks so much. a public relations executive and her company parted ways.
justine posted, going to africa, i hope i don't get aids. just kidding i'm white. a company spokesman said, in part, quote, there's no excuse for the hateful statements that have been made and we condemn them unequivocally. we hope time and action and the forgiving human spirit will not result in the wholesale condemnation of an individual who have otherwise known to be a decent person at the core. there's been a lot of talk about obamacare and questions about what will and will not be implemented. now obamacare, the word, involved in an arrest. police say hundreds of packets of heroin were stamped with obamacare. and have you heart about

living in the sex trade. >> nadia, this is not something you usually hear. s it ate other way around. >> as you said prostitution has always been legal in canada but it's been difficult to practice. three primary laws have been struck down unanimously by the supreme court in canada. they are the following. number one, visiting brothels is no longer illegal. number two, living off the proceeds of a prostitute, no longer illegal. and public solicitation, no longer illegal. >> that sounds like the whole game here. so, essentially, what has changed, i can open a brothel, bring in women from wherever, and force them to have sex for money and keep the proceeds? >> it's quite not like that. what was proved unanimously by the supreme court. for example, let's take the living off the proceeds of a prostitute. >> okay.
>> up until now. they couldn't have a tax consult and, couldn't have a bodyguard, couldn't hire a driver. now they can. what the canadian court realized the positives of striking down the law outweigh the negative. let me quote the chief justice, interesting, a woman justice who said parliament has the power to regulate against knew saunss. remember the laws were originally there because they wanted to present the knew saunss of public solicitation. they said not because of the health and safe tiff the lives of prostitutes. in the end these laws were put in place to prevent knew saunss, but they didn't make prostitutes' lives easy or healthy. that was the idea of striking them down. >> that's the legal justification of doing it. the woman who filed the lawsuits, one was a dominate trix. they were surprised.
you can understand women's add voe cassie groups, what is does is say it's okay to sell women and girls. don't you think it's interesting that it was unanimous? >> 9-0. >> still the original laws are in effect this entire year until such time as parliament decides what to do with them. so, interesting debate. >> are we expecting this conversation to continue? >> it will be interesting to see, but will parliament reinforce the laws, or will they change the laws so that in fact these three things are then struck down? >> in the meantime, the older laws will remain in place until those changes come about? >> right. but it's a big victory for the sex workers in canada. so many things like being able to hire an accountant. >> also a pimp. >> that's the other side of the law. >> if it's now legal, i can give you 10%, take the 90.
and you have to live in this house. >> what about a sex worker's childs care giver? also isn't health care more regulated in a brothel than outside of a brothel? that's a longtime argument. again, press and cons but certainly you have three very happy prostitutes in canada today. >> at least three. >> thank you, nadia. stick with us for a moment. new york city mayor michael bloomberg made a surprise appearance on "saturday night live" last night. >> that's right. he joined the host of weekend update to share his plans for retirement. he also took the opportunity to poke fun at policies and how can we forget his spanish accent. >> leaving your current job as early as next year, are you excited? >> i'm so excited to be hosting the tonight show as well as bringing it back too new york city. i know it's been late night for five years, now the tonight show and five years after that i'll

>> she has a tube in her stomach, her intestine, she had a tube in her nose. i mean she's -- it would be nice to have a day where she's eating food, pain free, and not through a tube. and be happy. >> at the skinner table, chelsea can only have one popcicle. that's all her stomach can take. she's already thinking about the menu of her future diner? >> you don't need to be a millionaire to eat there every night, it's like you feel like a millionaire when you eat there. that gave me chills. >> i was just thinking there that i was complaining to myself about having to work at christmas day, not being home to eat with my family but the fact that i will be able to chew and swallow and enjoy a meal at all is a blessing.
>> something that most of us take for granted, you know. >> if you got to work on christmas or you won't be with your family, you will have a meal and taste it and enjoy it. be grateful for that. >> absolutely. >> we have much more ahead on the next hour of "your new day" which starts right now. good morning, everyone, we appreciate you being here with us on this sunday morning. i'm pamela brown. >> i'm victor blackwell. it's 7:00 on the east coast and 4:00 out west. this is "new day sunday." p we want to begin with the winter weather making its way across the country. >> in wichita kansas, an ice storm morphed into a blizzard that dumped heavy, wet snow that made roads impassable. look at this. it froze drivers right there in their tracks. it's a scene being repeated all over the map, with the busy
holiday travel and cnn is all over the story with the radar center. and kansas city, missouri where we find nick valencia this morning. >> reporter: good morning. we're waking up to the snow falling overnight in kansas city. that's creating a mess for the roadways out here. that's really the case for much of the midwest. >> the first day of winter brought a massive storm, packing snow, ice, rain and floods. officials in mississippi say two people were killed and several others injured after a line of storms move through the state. in arkansas, a possible tornado destroyed buildings and hurt three people. this home was demolished but everyone survived. >> what's left of the house? >> practically nothing. no clothes. the christmas gifts were demolished. everything is gone.
>> and blew the windows out of the van, too. >> totalled the van. totalled the van. it's a mess. >> reporter: and parts of the midwest, heavy rains caused flooding in the entire river valley leaving cars, streets and backyards under water. on sunday, snow, ice, and freezing rain, will be the focus. >> i just got home. i figured throw salt down, beat the ice. >> more than 94 million americans traveling for the holidays, treacherous road conditions from oklahoma, kansas and missouri, where at least one person has died. driving has been made difficult and more ice and freezing temperatures sunday morning will make it dangerous. but this weather system is getting even stranger. temperatures will feel like spring for much of the east. in new york, bikers, joggers and baby strollers were out in full force to enjoy the unseasonably warm weather. >> i love it. it feels like it's may in december. it's like 60 degrees right now. it's beautiful.
>> reporter: back here in kansas city, it give knitly feels like winter. there are not too many people on the roadways like rite now. that's expected to change. the kansas city chiefs pride of the snee. they're playing a game later today. expact traffic in kansas city. nick valencia, trying to stay warm in kansas city. >> we appreciate it. >> he's bundled up. thanks so much. americans all over are gearing up for christmas trips. this weather really reeking havoc on travelers. george, good morning to you, are you seeing any delays, cancellations there? >> reporter: pamela, so far, so good. a very different scene than what we saw with nick in kansas city. no snow on the ground here in chicago, yet. and "yet" is the operative word as weather conditions will change throughout the day. guys, this could time out just right through travelers at least
through this airport, again one of the world's busiest airports. so far the weather is cooperating. keep in mind also a lot of travelers are getting on the roads. getting to the airports early. you see the lines building at chicago o'hare. right now look at the boards, no delay, that's great news at this airplane. look at other airports around the country. keep in mind the weather through chicago is chaining. we can expect delays from 1 to 2 hours through chicago. through washington, d.c., through new york, throughout the day as this storm system continues to pass through. the good news right now, again, pamela, if you're a traveler here in chicago, if you're coming through this airport, better to do it now, rather than later. right now we're flirting on the freezing mark, around 32, 33. that temperature expected to drop. we'll see snow as the day go on. >> all right. good advice there, george howell, thank you so much. people, as we mentioned,
gearing up for the holidays. it's really incredible what we're seeing across the country, tornado, blizzards, warm temperatures in atlanta? >> really warm in the northeast. jennifer grey has more on how the crazy weather could affect some. severe for some and beautiful for others. >> it's been a melting pot for all different types of weather. we've had ice, flooding, rain, snow. but we're still dealing with showers. however the tornado threat has gone down. it doesn't look like we're going see as many severe storms but we could see a couple of thunderstorms. we are dealing with the snow right outside of chicago. we'll zoom down on some areas. you can see around milwaukee, grand rapids. seeing some snow all over the great lakes region. as we head into upstate new york, northern vermont, new hampshire, northern maine. we're going to see quite a bit of snow and freezing rain. we've seen an accumulation of an
inch, inch and a half of ice across some of these areas. for the south, it's going to be the rain. you can see it's pushing towards atlanta right now. this is basically going to set up shop for today and into tonight and it should be pushing out by tomorrow. we could see rainfall amounts anywhere from 3 to 5 inches, right around the atlanta area, through charlotte. could see anywhere from 2 to 4 and that will be around d.c. as well a little later today. you asked about the very warm temperatures. it has been warm across the east. boston, you'll be at 56 today. just wait until christmas eve, your high temperature will be 33. new york city the same. you have one more day of this warm weather. 66 today, but then by tuesday, your high temperature will be at 38. so the weather will be changing once this system pushes through. this is monday morning around 2:00 in the morning and the rain will finally start to taper off. push off the east coast by then. we should be in the all clear by
monday. looking at travel delays, this is for today. could see one to two hour delays in chicago due to the snow in d.c. we could see showers, thunderstorms, even gusty winds. could slow you down up to two hours. new york city, we could see the same deal. thunderstorms forecasted later today. you could see slowed down one to two hours. just be patient today. it does improve tomorrow and then we'll get better and better by christmas eve and christmas day, guys. >> thanks. how long is the break from this snow and ice, how long does that last for them? >> looks like we could see another winter blast, looking ahead as early as maybe the new year. we'll see a possible another storm system roll through new year's eve time frame, around there, give or take a day or so. so, temperatures do get back to the 30s, though, guy buy christmas eve. looks like as far as the break in the weather with snow and ice and all of that, we have about a week to breathe, hopefully. >> just in time to freeze in
times square. >> exactly. checking our focus, more grief in the denver area. 17-year-old claire davis has died. 8 days after she was shot in the head by a classmate in arapaho high school. >> investigators said she didn't know kyle pearson. davis has been in a coma since that shooting. still to come on "new day." you heard the uproar. backlash that led to the suspension of phil robertson "duck dynasty" star. >> but could this controversy benefit the a&e network? we'll dive into that right after this. a subaru...

ignited a firestorm on social media. here's what she said on friday. she said going to africa, hope i don't get aids. just kidding, i'm white. >> this morning justine sack cois out of a job. they've parted ways with sacco. let's bring in brian. it has she spoken out since this tweet? >> she hasn't. i think a lost people would like to hear from her and hear her side of whatever story she has. we've been texting her. i tried calling her cell phone. no answer. she is in south africa for a vacation. maybe she decided to lay low, not apologize, or say anything. but not now. we haven't heard anything yet. >> read her tweet. here's a pr executive for a media conglomerate.
. if anybody should know better she should. >> then you wonder, was her account hacked or what is going on? seems like she tweeted offensive things in the past. is that right, brian? >> that's right. first of all, i didn't know she was on twitter. i worked with justine for years. i would call her when i had questions for years. her tweets did not sound like the justine i knew. her twitter account had a clear tone to it. i don't think there's anything as offensive what she posted friday about africa. but there were incensensitive ps in the past. seems nobody ever in theed them until friday. everything on the internet is public. sometimes you don't mow which message, which moment, is actually going to blow up. >> that's probably why she was emboldened to tweet back. >> also i wondered if what she was tweeting wasn't on its face of what it said.
if she was trying to make a point, because she is white, she's afforded health care in america. maybe that's what she was trying to tweet. i don't know. but i can't imagine a professional in public relations would think that makes sense. >> the form of the story, brian, is that you can't joke or make those types of points. >> that's true. >> there's other ways to make that point if that's what she was trying to say, right? >> and doing it, on an intercontinental flight is the wrong time. she was defenseless. even if she had the best of intentions for that post she couldn't explain it for 12 hours. i was glad when iac had her part. when they said they were parting ways with her. they said they know her to be a decent person at core and people don't go through a wholesale condemnation of her. none of us should be judged based on our worst twitter post. >> 12 words. it's a 12-word tweet. >> it may have ended her career. >> let's go to another tweet. we don't want to just pick on
sacco. steve martin is in hot water after he stopped a twitter follower that asked, is this how you spell ed lasonia? >> it depends. are you in an african-american restaurant or an italian restaurant, or neighborhood, there it is. african-american neighborhood or italian restaurant. it's on your screen. later he apologized and twedele the tweet. >> not smart. >> to his credit, he quickly apologized. that's something sacco didn't do. at least steve martin got ahead of it. there are different standards for people. if you're a comedian you'll get away with more, for better or worse than if you're a pr executive. >> it shows the danger of impulsively tweeting.
you should always think twice before sending it out. >> let's go to another topic that's been a talker. everyone is talking about. the duck dynasty star, fill robertson has been suspended after he made inappropriate comments calling homosexuality illogical and sinful and said black people were happy before the civil rights movement. do you think suspending robertson was a good move? do you the show will survive? >> i think a&e was in an impossible situation. they had openly gay employees, black employees who were understandably offended by robertson's comments. but a&e also knew that by suspending him there would be an outcry by other people. fans of phil robertson didn't say anything wrong. i think they were caught in impossible position.
unreliable sources will get into that today and figure out if there's anything differently they could have done. >> you see this played out in other circumstances with paula deen and others. >> companies are sometimes very eager to get ahead of these stories. to go back to justine sacco for a moment. that's why they put out a statement before her flight even landed. a&e was in a similar situation where they wanded to get out ahead of this and suspended phil robertson pretty quickly. after the holidays they'll regroup and try to figure out how to keep the show alive. >> that's interesting. that they had people inside a&e, cutting promos, working for the show who disagree. >> thank you so much for joining us. you can watch eliable sources this morning at 11:00 a.m. eastern. right here on cnn. >> up next on "new day sunday." now president obama's stern warning for south sudan. >> it come as the pentagon work on a plan to get americans

now they're not coordinating flights out at this time because it's too dangerous. often in these cases they'll try to organize ground transport but i think they also want to look at the terrain in terms of ground transport and want to wait and see for right now. >> alyce, secretary kerry announced an envoy, president obama announced 45 u.s. troops going over to south sudan. are we expecting those numbers to change, or those -- the envoy to continue to go, knowing that americans are taking fire? >> reporter: well, i think they're going review this situation right now, victor and see whether it's safe for him to go in. these ethnic tensions have been brewing for some time. now they're worried that the country is all out on the bring of civil war. so i think this envoy, donald booth, wants to go in. wants to see if he can organize some talks between the government of president keir and the rebels, run by the former vice president, and the
government says that they're willing to talk. so, i think that's what they want to try to do. because, you know, this young country, this world's youngest country, decades of civil war with the north. they claim independence, he was instrumental in that, and now it's on the bring of civil war once again. i think the u.s. wants to see if they can get everybody to get back from the bring, sit down and talk before this really escalates any further. >> foreign affairs reporter live in washington, thank you, alyce. >> the white house said president obama is being briefed on the situation in south sudan while on vacation in hawaii with his first family and he has a warning for the people and the government there. cnn's athena jones is live in honolulu. athena, how is the president reacting? >> reporter: good morning, victor. we know immediately upon landing here in honolulu late friday night, the president was briefed while still aboard air force one
about the status of those four american service members who were injured in this attempt to evacuate those american citizens from bor. later saturday morning his national court team led by susan rice had a meeting on the situation in south sudan and briefed the president again via conference call. we know he's having continuous briefings. he directed his national security team to continue to work with the united nations to try to evacuate these american citizens. those americans were working, of course, for the u.n. while in south sudan and he had this warning for the leaders of south sudan, it's a very young country, only 2 years old. he said south sudan's leaders must know continued violence will enganger the people of south sudan and hard-earned progress of independence. the president also said it's the responsibility of south sudan's leaders to help the u.s. secure
these american personnel in that country. he's directed his national security team to continue giving him updates. victor? >> it's only 2:20 where you are. but i can imagine, athena that the president will be briefed on the situation later this morning. do you know if he's been in touch with any officials in sudan? >> i don't know if he's been in direct contact with officials in sudan. he's being briefed through the national security team in washington. who are in touch with all of the necessary officials. we know every day he receives his daily presidential briefing. certainly not for several more hours will he get that briefing and we would expect he would be updated again on whatever the latest plans are, or plans to be considered or how to deal with the situation there in south sudan. pam, victor? >> athena ajones in honolulu, up at 2:20 a.m. thank you. >> coming up with a few days left to live, a community in pennsylvania, helps a girl's
