7:03 am
welcome to "cbs this morning." norah o'donnell is off, and we're pleased to have clarissa ward joins once again. good morning. >> good morning, charlie. >> we begin with the weather. you're waking up to another sunny day in the west people in los angeles enjoying temperatures near 80. the east coast is shivering as a blast of arctic air follows a major snowstorm. high temperatures today will be well below freezing and wind chills will make it feel even colder. >> the storm is causing serious problems from north carolina to maine, parts of new york city got a foot of snow or more creating terrible conditions for commuters, and the storm is still pounding southeastern new england, parts of eastern massachusetts are seeing blizzard conditions. michelle miller is in boston where more snow is expected over the next several hours. michelle, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, charlie and clarissa and to our view others in the west. it's been snowing for more than 12 hours here in boston. public schools are closed and city officials are urging residents to stay off the streets.
7:04 am
as the snow fell fast and heavy across massachusetts, residents didn't wait for it to pile up. >> by that time there will be 12, 14 inches and if you can get it 3, 4 inches at a time it doesn't seem as much right? >> reporter: by midnight, nearly a foot of snow had fallen in some areas. state officials hoped 3,000 pieces of snow-removal equipment will be enough but bone-chilling temperatures could make that job even harder. >> once you get to 10 degrees and single numbers there's nothing that melts it other than a blowtorch. >> reporter: from boston to baltimore, snow-covered roads proved dangerous. >> as you can see, i just rear-ended a lady, and i even hit the emergency brake, and it's brutal. >> reporter: officials are investigating whether slick streets caused this suv to slam into a house in boston. in new jersey three people were injured when a charter bus tipped over a guardrail and slid do you an embankment. new york also took a pounding, catching a few people off-guard.

7:06 am
>> michelle, thanks. washington, d.c., is coping with the snow. government offices reopened this morning. they closed yesterday because of the storm. the weather's affecting trains along with highways in the northeast. and air travel is in turmoil across the country. around 1,400 of today's flights are cancelled. that follows 3,000 cancellations yesterday. vinita nair is at la guardia, which is struggling to get back to normal. vinita, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, there is one thing they have plenty of here and that's cancellations. 318 flights cancelled today as a result of the storm, and there is a trickle-down. on the west coast, more than 60 flights have been cancelled. all across new york city airports, flights have been cancelled. 750 total. 1,400 nationwide. while there were some early cancellations unfortunately for families like the roechs, relocating from ireland to the u.s., the cancellations were too late.
7:07 am
>> well, it's very hard. the 9-year-old fell asleep crying last night, because we didn't -- we knew the hotels were all booked up and the closest hotel we were able to find was over 20 miles away and nobody would take us that far with the weather being as bad as it was. so as a mom, that was kind of heart wrenching, you know, your kid is crying because he doesn't know how he'll sleep all night. >> reporter: the majority of flights cancelled in the west coast as a result of this storm are in san francisco. but right now, the airlines are saying they think it could take several days to clear the backlog caused by this storm nationwide. as for the roache family i spoke with them moments ago, and they're close to 18 hours in la guardia airport. they still do not have a flight booked and they're bracing for the reality they could find themselves on another airport cot tonight. >> thank you vinita. a storm emergency is still in effect this morning in philadelphia as the city starts to clear way more than a foot of snow. schools, government offices, and many businesses are closed.
7:08 am
meteorologist kate bilo of cbs station kyw is out in the snow in downtown philadelphia. >> reporter: good morning from sunny, frigid philadelphia waking up to single digit temperatures and over a foot of snow on the ground this morning, and the storm has impacted millions of people up and down the northeast coast. we're here with the cbs 3 mobile weather lab. this is our weather tracker on wheels, it's been out with us since yesterday morning in the worst of the conditions. now the sun is shining, but the damage has been done. let's recap the storm. this was a clipper that transferred energy to a coastal low throwing back bands of heavy snow from d.c. all the way up to boston, and still snowing in portions of eastern new england. a wide swath of 6 to 12 inches with locally higher amounts, we got 13.5 here in philadelphia followed by another brutal blast of arctic air. temperatures in the single digits. it feels subzero, and unfortunately, the brutal arctic blast will last at least through the end of the week. >> kate bilo in philadelphia.
7:09 am
we're on board a snowplow in new jersey this morning. coming up don dayler will show us how technology is making plows smarter. officials are hoping it will save hundreds of lives every year. that's ahead. this morning, widespread concern over the city of the winter olympics. president obama and russian president vladimir putin talked by phone about security for the games, and now some american athletes are telling their families to stay away from sochi. charlie dageda is in london with the growing battle to protect the olympics. charlie, good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you, charlie and clarissa. with over two weeks to go before the start of the game the russians have gone on the offensive trying to rout out militants in the region and continuing the manhunt for bombers who may already be inside the security ring. here is how russians are eliminating terror threats. in this take-no-prisoners assault in dagestan a few hundred miles from sochi, russian officials say soldiers shot dead a suspected militant leader.
7:10 am
dagestan is home to an islamic insurgency that along with neighboring chechnya have been battling russian security forces for years. it's where boston bombing suspect tamm lann tsarnaev lived for months before launching the attack during the marathon, and where he may have been radicalized. now, the russians are hunting down suicide bombers from dagestan intent on targeting the olympics. and for a country desperate to reassure jittery athletes and audience members there must be an urgent reason for handing out mug shots around sochi. ruzana may already be in the region ready to strike. she's been described as a black widow, women whose husbands or relatives have been killed in clashes. black widows are among russia's most feared terrorists connected to previous attacks like the 2002 moscow theater siege, the school siege in
7:11 am
beslam in 2004 and the attack on moscow's subway system in 2010. security concerns have meant many americans are staying away. sean and dan fredericks won't be attending to watch their triple olympian son tucker compete in speedskate speedskating. >> there are concerns for security, and it seems like every day there's another concern and all of that, and tucker wants to be focused on the race, and he's asked us and his wife if we would stay home and watch it on tv. >> reporter: in addition to president obama's offer of full support for a safe and security games, the u.s. military is making two ships in the black sea available if needed during the olympics. charlie and clarissa? >> charlie dageda thank you. former virginia governor bob mcdonnell and his wife face 14 criminal charges this morning, including conspiracy and fraud. the case involves big money gifts from a political supporter supporter. nancy cordes is in washington with the governor's response to the corruption charges.
7:12 am
nancy, good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you, clarissa and charlie. mcdonnell was once considered a possible presidential contender for the gop, but now he's the first virginia governor ever to be charged with a crime. and the charges he's facing carry the possibility of decades behind bars. with his family at his side last night, governor bob mcdonnell insisted he is guilty only of poor judgment. not a crime. >> i never promised, and mr. williams and his company never received, any government benefit of any kind from me or from my administration. >> reporter: federal prosecutors say mcdonnell and his wife maureen accepted more than $135,000 in gifts and loans from one person johnny williams the former ceo of the virginia-based company star scientific, a manufacturer of dietary supplements. the two men met when mcdonnell was running for governor in 2009, and the money started flowing soon afterwards.
7:13 am
according to a 43-page indictment williams gave governor mcdonald and his wife free flights on his private jet and shopping sprees worth tens of thousands of dollars. williams even paid for the catering at the governor's daughter's wedding and bought the governor a $6,500 rolex at maureen's request. in exchange the indictment says, virginia's first couple performed official actions on an as-needed basis to legitimize promote, and obtain research studies for star scientific's products. it wasn't that long ago that mcdonnell was considered a rising republican star and possible presidential candidate in 2016. >> i think it would be very difficult for governor mcdonnell to run for the president in 2016 because of the indictment but you never know. stranger things have happened in politics. >> reporter: the fraud investigation casts a dark shadow over mcdonnell's final year in office and helped to propel a democrat terry mcauliffe, into the governor's mansion behind him.
7:14 am
mcdonnell and his wife have their first court appearance and arraignment in richmond on friday. >> thanks. world leaders are holding peace talks to end the three-year civil war in syria. the assad regime is accused of war crimes. margaret is live at the international conference. margaret, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, charlie and to clarissa. the assad regime and syrian opposition members were in the same room for the first time since the brutal war began nearly three years ago, but they haven't started talking to each other yet. the negotiations get under way friday in geneva. today was about a political roadmap that will lead to the exit of president assad. but things got off to a rocky start after the syrian foreign minister rejected the idea and then spent 30 minutes listing grievances against the u.s. and other countries that support the rebels. he even refused to stop speaking after the u.n. secretary general asked him to.
7:15 am
>> -- syria, i have the right to give the syrian version here in this forum. >> reporter: the u.s. blasted that as inflammatory but the syrian opposition president, backed by the west was also fiery. he accused the regeemime of war crimes that had not been seen since nazi concentration camps. while tensions are high here the expectations are low. secretary kerry is asking for at and food to starving civilians. >> margaret brennan, thank you. newly released video shows a deadly colorado plane crash. it happened earlier this month at a small airport in aspen. as barry petersen reports, the footage comes from five infrared cameras posted around the airport. >> reporter: the grainy black-and-white video captures the last seconds of the private jet trying to land at the pitkin county airport.
7:16 am
the jet had aborted one landing before this. the cameras show the jet on its fatal second try. but as the cameras show it was too late. the plane hit, bounced up briefly, and then slammed into the runway. >> what's with all the smoke behind us at about our 5:00 position? >> there was an incident here on the runway sir. >> reporter: the crash remains under investigation by the national transportation and safety board. one focus -- the tailwinds that gusted up to 28 miles an hour, almost three times faster than considered safe for jet airplane landings. one of the three pilots on board was killed. another remains in critical condition, and the third has been released from the hospital. whatever the cause, the videos could be one of key elements in the investigation and are a rare, sad look into the last seconds of a doomed aircraft. for "cbs this morning," barry petersen, denver. new crash test results are
7:17 am
out this morning. the focus, small cars increasingly common but as jeff reports, the findings put them among the worst performing models in the most important area. >> reporter: the cars tested are among the smallest vehicles on the market barely big enough for two adults but a growing segment for automakers who want to appeal to consumers looking to save gas and time spent searching for a parking spot. but they may be sacrificing safety. the insurance institute for highway safety put 11 minicars to the test in what they called the small overlapped front crash test. at 40 miles per hour when the front corner of the vehicle collides with another car, or an object like a tree, this is what happens. the results were not good for ten of the 11 vehicles tested. only the chevrolet spark scored an acceptable rating earning it a 2014 top safety pick award. >> there's no reason that the automakers can't improve the
7:18 am
protection in these minicars. >> reporter: in real life situations, the worst performers can leave drives with serious injuries. among them the fiat 500, whose door was torn off, and the honda fit. >> in the case of the honda fit, we saw large levels of intrusion, lots of occupant compartment deformation, the driver dummy didn't interact much with the frontal air bag. all around it was not a good crash performance. >> reporter: chrysler group, a subsidiary of fiat told us the fiat 500 meets or exceeds all government-mandated safety requirements. a spokesman for honda says the company is working on an all-new completely redesigned 2015 honda fit that they anticipate will earn stop safety scores. the iahs is hoping the tests will prompt more automakers to make more safety changes to the small cars. for "cbs this morning," jeff

each winter states and cities spend tens of millions of dollars to keep roads safe. accidents related to wintery weather still claim the lives of more than 4,000 americans a year. in michigan the state's department of transportation or mdot maintains those roadways. this year michigan along with minnesota and nevada are rolling out a new weapon for tackling ice and snow-covered roads, custom design sensors that measure road and weather conditions attached to hundreds of plow trucks. the goal? ensure that hard-hit roads that need immediate plowing are prioritized. >> prior to this technology we were somewhat in the dark. we had to kind of guess where we needed to be. we had to guess what the forecast was going to lay out in front of us over the next six, 12 or 24 hours. >> sensors gauge temperature and humidity as well as road conditions through the vehicle's
7:33 am
diagnostics. >> so you get things like traction control. you get stability. you get abs. the other device is what's called a surface monitoring device that picks up ambient air temperature, humidity dew point. it picks up surface temperature. >> data is combined with computer weather models and relayed back to maintenance garages. the information is displayed in each vehicle so supervisors and drivers have a near real-time snapshot of every mile of rode the trucks have traveled. but it's not just safety. states and cities can also save money by reducing the amount of excess chemicals and rock salt uners inially spread on roads. last year trucks spent more than a half million tons of solt and 93,000 tons of sand on michigan state roads alone. they hope the new truck also before more efficient. >> these pinpoint conditions can help us tell the operator where they're going to leverage their resources better. if you're using less sand and
7:34 am
salt and chemical we're dispensing less. if we're dispensing less on the road, that's less impact on the environment. >> reporter: later this month new york will come the fourth state to start using these kinds of technologies. the u.s. department of transportation is going to look at these pilot programs to see how they work before implementing the programs in other states probably by next winter. charlie, clarissa? >> you get all the good assignments, don't you, daler? >> reporter: i know. ice breaker one week and now a snowplow. i feel like a little kid out here. >> what do you know about snowplows now that you didn't know yesterday? >> reporter: they're a lot easier than doing it by yourself. i know that just from personal experience. >> thanks don. >> have fun out there, don. thank you. if he's alive robert levinson is the longest held american hostage in history.

7:36 am
>> reporter: but the u.s. government still has not admitted that levinson ever worked directly for u.t. intelligence. the family's attorney david mcgee says it's time to come clean and make a deal. >> if the u.s. would come full face and say yes, he worked for the cia, that might be enough of a show of good faith that the iranians would respond? >> that's our hope. >> reporter: le vinson who retired after working more than 30 years for the dea and fbi disappeared in 2007. in 2010 these documents purporting to show his arrest in iran were anonymously e-mailed to christine levinson. she later received these pictures and this videotape. >> i've been held here for 3 1/2 years. i am not in very good health. >> reporter: the video sparked hope he would soon be released. >> i do believe he's alive. we have never received any information that shows anything else. >> reporter: intelligence

sources agree he's likely still alive. mcgee says the iranians see him as a valuable bargaining chip. >> we believe the iranians know what they have. >> his family says until the swap occurs they won't give up. >> i love my husband. i believe that wherever he is he is trying as hard as he can to get back to his family. >> how you managed to hang on to hope. >> never lose hope. i know he'll come home safely. >> the white house says levinson's case is a top priority in their on going efforts to win his release. both president obama and secretary of state kerry have personally raised the issue with top iranian officials. >> just a mystifying story, bob orr, thank you. a new push this morning to make credit cards smarter and safer. the national retail federation is urging congress to ask after the cyber attacks against millions of shoppers at target and other stores. >> the group wants the nation to

7:39 am
new credit cards where we traditionally have the card that has the magnetic strip on the back. we know that because a lot of times it doesn't work, that has all of our information in it. and all the information on the front of the card. we know that. the chip and p.i.n. the thing that's grade about it the information is embedded in the chip. for the transaction to go through, you have to put in a p.i.n. code, just like we're used to with an atm. it's a belt and suspenders approach. the issue is the point of sale. that hardware has to all be changed in the u.s. because we have such a massive network, the estimated cost is about $8 billion. that's why this has been so slow to happen. >> what would have to happen for them to have the incentive to change? >> well, one of the things that one of the credit card companies is doing master card they're saying if there's fraud, if the terminal the point of sale doesn't allow both the traditional card that we have in america as well as the cards
7:40 am
that many other people have outside of our country with the chip and p.i.n. if it doesn't accommodate both we're going to have the liability be to the terminal, we're not going to accept the liability. that's an interesting approach to try to move this forward and get the point of sale companies to change the hardware. >> mellody hobson thank you so much. san francisco is taking on google and facebook accused of wasting public space and money with commuter buses. >> the shuttles the tech companies are not paying their fair share. >> a dollar a stop doesn't seem like much. >> a dollar a stop is chump change. >> john blackstone reveals what protesters are really mad about next on "cbs this morning." jock black stone with what the protesters are really mad about next on "cbs this morning."
