7:04 am
barreling its way down the west coast continues to dump record amounts of rain. in wet and windy san francisco, more than 3 inches was enough to flood freeways and turn roads into rivers. more than 500 collisions were reported. >> several lines down on the roadway, tree branches blocking the roadway. visibility is reduced. if you can, slow down. >> reporter: falling trees crushed cars and knocked down power lines across the bay area with winds gusting to nearly 80 miles an hour. nearly 300,000 homes and businesses in the region lost power. >> the tree fell on the power line and knocked out our power, and we're a law office so without computers or phones or copiers or anything, it's pretty hard to do anything today. >> reporter: another home was washed away in washington state but huge waves continue to eat away at the ground. in oregon the storm proved deadly, killing two, including would be teenager who died after

7:06 am
continue for much of the delay today. although it will be nowhere near as heavy as it was yesterday. the prediction for the week to come is more rain, although we should dry out a little bit over this weekend. >> thank you very much. and surfers are taking advantage of rare impressive waves on chilly lake tahoe. one surfer said the storms are creating the best conditions he's ever seen there. meteorologist evan taft is tracking this weather. >> good morning to viewers in the west. we're looking at stormy conditions especially through southern california. over the last 24 hours, very impressive rainfall totals for norther and central california. take a look. san francisco over 3 inches of rain. almost 3 1/2 to be exact. san jose, just under 3 1/2. big sur, over 7 inches. record rainfall in some parts of california and expecting more of it as we move through the next few hours. as we look at future cast, you will see the rain continuing for
7:07 am
southern california. continuing to stay heavy throughout the morning and the afternoon. even by the evening hours, we're starting to continue to see those cells peter out. but still maybe some severe weather in the forecast. we could see thunderstorms, flash flooding an issue all morning long and could continue to be an issue. by the evening hours, a lot of the storm really starting to move towards the four corners. by the time we hit the weekend, things looking a lot drier. we still could see leftover rain and leftover snow as we head into saturday. charlie. >> evelyn, thanks. the senate could vote today on the budget bill. house members approved the budget by a small marin last night. nancy cordes is on capitol hill. some say they added to the christmas bill for friends. nancy, good morning. >> good morning. the house passed this $1.1 trillion funding bill at the last minute. it funds the government for nine
7:08 am
months which for congress is an eternal. the house voted to fund the government but only after a face-off that threatened to topple a carefully crafted compromise. >> this is a ransom. this is blackmail. >> reporter: nancy pelosi and her democratic colleagues were furious about two last-minute additions to the bill, one allowing wealthy donors to give $324,000 per year to political parties, ten times the current limit, and another to roll back a key financial regulation that limits banks from trading and risky derivatives with governmentbacked funds. >> if you're a big bank or a big donor, we bail you out, but everybody else gets left out. democrats should not be endorsing that view. >> a vote for this bill is a vote for future taxpayer bailouts of wall street. >> the white house argued it was better to take a flawed deal now than wait until january. >> there's no doubt the amount of leverage the democrats have on capitol hill will be reduced as a result of the republican gains that were made in the last midterm election.
7:09 am
>> it wasn't just democrats who had problems. a group of conservatives bulked because the bill does not do more to block the president's recent immigration orders. >> this lawlessness immigration overreach must not stand. >> but in the end, enough members from both sides said yes to pass the bill by five votes. in a controversial move republicans slipped in a measure blocking the district of columbia from legalizing marijuana, even though 70% of the local voters approved the pot measure last month. the senate could pass the spending bill as early as today. and the white house has said the president will sign it and congress can go home for the holidays knowing it has fulfilled one of its most basic duties that somehow also turned out to be one of its most difficult. thank you very much. protests over the deaths of eric garner and michael brown have reached capitol hill.
7:10 am
nearly 200 staffers walked on to the capitol steps thursday. they stood with their hands in the air symbolizing the deaths of the two black men killed by police and then walked back inside. the cia is rejecting many of the allegations in the senate report. bob orr is in washington with an instant response from the report's chief architect. bob, good morning. >> good morning. the spat between cia director john brennan and senate intelligence committee chairman dianne feinstein has reached a new low. as brennan was busy defending his agency, senator feinstein was firing off tweets calling into question much of what brennan had to say. cameras are rarely permitted inside the cia, so it was an extraordinary event when john brennan told a televised news conference that some rogue interrogators used brutal tactics in questioning al qaeda detainees. >> in a limited number of cases, agency officers used interrogation techniques that had not been authorized, were
7:11 am
abhorrent and rightly should be reputediated by all. >> brennan did not use the word "torture." he broadly defended the cia's detention program ordered by the bush white house in the tense days following 9/11. >> there were numerous, credible, and very worrisome reports about a second and third wave of major attacks against the united states. >> reporter: brennan rejected allegations by the democrats on the senate intelligence committee that so-called enhanced interrogation techniques used on dozens of detainees produced no actionable intelligence. >> our reviews indicate that the detention and interrogation program produced useful intelligence that helped the united states thwart attack plan capture terrorists and save lives. >> reporter: but as brennan was speaking senator feinstein tweeted back. no evidence that terror abeing thats were stopped, terrorists captured or lives saved. in a point by point rebuttal she saided interrogation
7:12 am
techniques don't work. but brennan, clearly unaware of the tweets said there's no way to know if those techniques led to breakthrough intelligence. >> there was useful intelligence, very useful valuable intelligence that was obtained from individuals who had been at some point subjected to eits. whether that could have been obtained without the use of those eits is something, again, that is unknowable. >> brennan reiterated his personal objection to eits and the white house has given the cia chief a new vote of confidence. charlie. >> bob, thanks. the hackers who stole millions of documents from sony pictures are getting perm. personal. they're leaking information of health information of dozens of sony employees and their families. meanwhile the co-chairman and hollywood producer are apologizing for their stolen e-mails. they used their personal e-mail to mock president obama. elaine quijano is here with more. good morning.
7:13 am
>> good morning. with the barrage of leaks piling up by the day, it is trying to do damage control. the hacks have already fundamentally altered the way the company does business. thursday night's premiere of "the interview" was light on star power. and heavy on security. actor seth rogen slipped by almost undetected because only still photographers were allowed up close to document the event. >> we're moving this back. >> reporter: a highly unusual move coming amid fallout from the sweeping sign attack that sent a top hollywood studio into crisis mode exposing everything from celebrity aliases to employee social security numbers. >> this is an attempt to destroy the company, confidential financial information and perhaps the most embarrassing, very candid e-mails. and brutal e-mails between studio executive and a producer. >> reporter: in one reported e-mail published by buzz feed industry mega producer scott rudin and sony pictures
7:14 am
co-chairman amy pascal discuss an upcoming event with president obama. said should i ask him if he liked django? >> or "the butler." >> she said, "ride along." i bet he likes kevin hart. "grey's anatomy" creator shonda rhime s suggests it was clearly racist. you can put a cherry on a pile of bleep but it don't make it a sundae. damage control. in a statement pascal said, i accept full responsibility for what i wrote and apologize to everyone who was offended. rudin also apologized, saying the e-mails were meant to only be funny but in the cold light of day they are, in fact, thoughtless and insensitive. the revelations are more than just an embarrassment for sony. >> the studio wants to control the information but with its confidential financial information out on the blocks, that's no longer the case.
7:15 am
>> reporter: and the leaks might continue. a massive amount of information was hacked and only a small portion has been leaked so far. in a new interview with the wrap pascal said she wouldn't wish this on her worst enemy. >> all right, elaine, thank you. a california man is in jail this morning after a tense standoff on a highway bridge. daniel perez is considered a person of interest in his wife's death. he disappeared a week ago with their children. now, the dramatic confrontation with police, all captured on video. >> a s.w.a.t. truck just pulled up to the scene. >> reporter: a team of s.w.a.t. trucks and sharpshooters surrounded a toyota camry shortly after it stopped on a dag highway on thursday morning. inside the car, daniel perez and his four children who have been missing since last friday. >> where he stopped was our concern. our concern was maybe he was going to try to jump over the side and take some of the boys
7:16 am
with him. >> reporter: minutes into the standoff, two of the boys escaped, running into the arms of negotiatators. >> the right door is open. >> reporter: he eventually emerged with the two other children. >> it looked like the kids were going to try to run to the police but it looked like maybe the father was telling them not to. >> with no place to go perez look like he was going to jump before officers shot him with a bean bags and tackled him to the ground. >> he is in custody, children are safe. >> reporter: they traced perez using the car's lojack system. their mother erica perez also had been missing. police confirmed her body was found in the trunk of another car belonging to the family. >> her case is considered a homicide. we can't release any information as to manner of death or any evidence as it could compromise the investigation and it will be done at some point by the medical examiner. >> as for the four perez children, they have been reunited with family members. for "cbs this morning," bigad shaban, los angeles. there's a new warning out
7:17 am
about the growing danger of superbug. higher rates of drug resistant infections could lead to 10 million deaths a year and cost $100 trillion. dr. david agus is in los angeles. good morning. >> good morning, charlie. >> tell us about these findings and how alarmed should we be. >> so the british prime minister cameron brought in jim o'neill who used to be the head of goldman sachs asset management and said do a study what could happen with these superbugs. what they found is super bugs, which are bugs that don't respond to antibiotics, are a problem now. 23,000 deaths a year in the united states. but are growing and will be a remarkable problem over the next several decades unless we start to do something. >> how big a threat is this and what do we need to do? >> well, it's a real threat today. it's going to be a bigger threat. the problem is there aren't a lot of new drugs being developed or technologies being developed here. so unless we spend today, there's going to be problems tomorrow. we can't afford not to spend in this area. you look at ebola.
7:18 am
ebola started off small and we didn't intervene and now it's an enormous problem. this is orders of magnitude bigger than what ebola could be. >> david, merck paid more than $8 billion for a company that has some promising new antibiotics. is that the answer here? >> it's certainly a bright spot in the field but unfortunately one of the few bright spots. this company made some new antibiotics that worked against some of these super bug, but there aren't many others. so we need to invest now at the academic universities and do research, develop new technologies. because we're overusing antibiotics. we have to stop that. an amazing study came out a few weeks ago that showed later in the day doctors give out more antibiotics for the same symptoms as earlier in the day. they wear out. they don't have the energy to say we don't want to treat it and explain it. so we need to go forward and prevent using these antibiotics and research. >> jim o'neill talked about the
7:19 am
economic consequences of this, a trillion dollar. >> $100 trillion. that's the equivalent of taking the uk out of the economy between now and 2050. that's a tremendous impact. >> thank you so much. it is 7:19. ahead on "cbs this morning," a famous former supermodel details new accusations against bill cosby. >> well, i knew he was trying to take advantage of me, but i knew this goes above and beyond, you know, making a pass at a woman. you don't make a pass at a woman by drugging her. >> beverly johnson tells us what happened when she says the roberta gonzales in our kpix 5 studios with the "eye on the storm." it has been generating off the pacific coast and there it is

7:35 am
immediately felt strange and then i took another sip of the cappuccino, and that drug was so powerful it just -- it came on like a moving train and i knew i had been drugged. >> what did you think he was trying to do? >> well, i knew he was trying to take advantage of me, but i knew this goes above and beyond, you know, making a pass at a woman. you don't make a pass at a woman by drugging her. >> she does not think cosby assaulted her but she said she was nearly unconscious when he dragged her out of his house and put her in a cab. that was after she swore at him several times. >> i looked him dead in the eye and called him a name. >> what did you call him? >> i called him an m.f. i said, you're an m.f., aren't
7:36 am
you? >> but you used the words. >> yes, i did. and he was a little stunned. i wanted him to know i knew that he had drugged me. >> johnson was a well-known successful model at the time. in 1974, she was the first black woman to appear on the cover of vogue. she says days after the incident she called cosby to confront him but his wife camille answered and johnson never spoke to the comedian again. why come forward now? >> it was the women that have come forward that gave me the courage to come forward. then to hear their stories that were very similar to mine, i knew that i had to say something. >> johnson says women tend not to speak out against powerful men and she feels that allowed cosby to continue his alleged behavior. >> now that i speak to other people in the business in hollywood, it's one of the best kept secrets in hollywood. i most certainly had -- i would
