this morning's eye-opener, let's go places. welcome to "cbs this morning." welcome to "cbs this morning." the nation's fourth largest city is struggling with deadly widespread flooding triggered by historical rainfall. more water rescues under way in houston this morning even as floodwaters recede. >> five people died yesterday in southeast texas. nearly a foot and a half of rain reportedly fell just west of houston. more wet weather is in the forecast. texas and nearby states face possible flash flooding through thursday. omar villafranca in houston where people are racing to escape rushing water. omar, good morning. >> good morning. some scary moments here in northwest houston. as you can see, there's a boat that just pulled up right now and they are loading, unloading people off of that boat after rescuing them from an apartment complex. many of them were only able to grab clothes and rescue a few pets. all of this water that you see behind me is from yesterday's
7:04 am
record rainfall. the amount of rain, historic. the rescue attempts, dramatic. streets became waterways littered with people holding only what they could carry in their arms. an entire neighborhood swallowed by rising waters. >> we panicked. we have a 2 week old. the water keeps rising and it was unsafe for him. it's terrifying. especially if you can't swim. >> first responders worked arrange the clock in boats and even jet skis saving children and senrs and pets. >> bringing through. bringing through. >> rescuers dove into neck high water to save livestock from drowning. people escaped to safety any way they could. on air mattresses, in empty container bins. even inside refrigerators. texas governor greg abbott. >> please remember the easy
7:05 am
phrase, turn around, don't drowned. stay out of the rising water. >> have you ever seen anything like this before? >> last time it got like this in this area, the waterline came up to here. this is as far. >> about a foot of water. >> about a foot of water, yeah. >> this is the largest flood event to hit the houston area since tropical storm allison in 2001 where 23 were killed in texas alone. engineer sunita singh drowned as floodwaters overtook her while inside her car. her husband says his heart is broken. >> cancer, heart problem, all that i understand. but this, drowning in high water in the middle of the city and there's nothing that could be done. it's a terrible loss, for me, for everybody. >> many schools in the houston area are closed today so they can begin cleanup, but there is more rain in the forecast. >> that's the last thing they need. thank you very much, omar. we have breaking news from afghanistan where dozens of people were killed in a taliban
7:06 am
attack on a government security agency. it began with a suicide car bombing this morning outside the agency's compound in kabul. gunmen stormed in and started shooting. security forces fought them off leaving at least 28 dead and 300 others wounded. >> president obama begins a week long trip to saudi arabia, britain and germany. at his first stop, he will talk with saudi leaders facing trouble at home and abroad. he'll also meet with leaders of six persian gulf countries to discuss the fight against isis. the president talked with us about his foreign policy monday at the white house. we sat down after officials announced another 200 american troops will be sent to iraq. they will help local forces try to recapture a key city from isis. >> this is a long, hard fight, as i just said last week. but what we've seen is they have lost territory. as we see, the iraquis willing to fight and gaining ground must make sure we're providing them more support. we're not doing the fighting ourselves. when we provide training, when
7:07 am
we provide special forces who are backing them up, when we're gaining intelligence, working with the coalitions that we have, what we've seen is that we can continually tighten the noose. my expectation is that by the end of the year, we will have created the conditions whereby mosul will eventually fall. >> when you arrived in office, i think one of the early things you said to the cia director is i want to get us there and you did. you feel the same about baghdadi. >> the isil structure, which is as wicked and destructive as any group of individuals on this planet. >> do you think you'll be able to get baghdadi by the end of your term? >> my goal is to make sure we're doing things right and we have a plan and we skpexecute. you take bin laden, for example, i would like to have gotten him the first year.
7:08 am
you don't have that luxury as president. what you have the ability to do is put in training pieces, intelligence, military, diplomatic, and you just keep on grinding it out. >> let me turn to cases that have been in the news recently, which is the 28 pages of the 9/11 report. have you read it? >> you know, i have a sense of what's in there, but this has been a process which we generally deal with through the intelligence community and jim clapper, our director of national intelligence, has been going through to make sure that whatever it is that is released is not going to compromise some major national security interest in the united states. there are just reams of intelligence that are coming through constantly. some of them are raw and not tested. some of them are -- >> some of that may be in the 28
7:09 am
pages. >> some may be in the 28 pages. i don't know. the point is, it's important for there to be an orderly process where we evaluate this because what can end up happening is if you just dump a whole bunch of stuff out there that nobody knows exactly how credible it is. was it verified or not, it can end up creating problems. >> it's been a long time. >> it has. that i will acknowledge. hopefully this process will come to a head fairly soon. >> what about this legislation in the congress that allows families to sue the saudi government, and other governments in different circumstances. >> exactly. i'm opposed because of that second clause in your sentence. this is not just a bilateral u.s.-saudi issue. this is a matter of how generally the united states approaches our interactions with other countries. if we open up the possibility that individuals in the united
7:10 am
states can routinely start suing other governments, then we are also opening up the united states to being continually sued by individuals in other countries. >> really interesting, as the president is embarking on a trip to saudi arabia today. >> yes, indeed. he'll meet with saudis and have interesting conversations. the 28 pages, you get a sense something is going to happen, releasing that. some of the stuff may not be as incriminating as we suspect, they did a lot of investigations. but it has been a long time. couldn't they have done this earlier? next hour the president talks about president putin and america's political dysfunction. you can watch the entire conversation tonight on my program. crucial presidential primary, hillary clinton and donald trump want to widen the gap between them and their opponent. clinton and bernie sanders fighting for 247 democratic delegates.
7:11 am
trump is favored to win most of the 95 republican delegates. nancy cordes and major garrett at two polling stations where clinton voted earlier and trump has now gone to vote. begin with major and republican race, synagogue in midtown manhattan. major, good morning. >> good morning. just outside of central synagogue in downtown manhattan where donald trump is expected to vote any minute now of the big question for his campaign, how big will he win new york. 95 delegates, his campaign expects to win between 88 and 92 and hopes that propels him pros tifl towards five primaries a week in the northeast and keeps hope alive for him to win this nomination outright. >> we're going to start winning, winning, winning. >> it's been almost a month since donald trump won a primary. with the new york victory in sight, he's starting to talk like a presumptive nominee.
7:12 am
>> going to get to the big ballot, 537. >> he's well positioned to win a solid share of 172 delegates awarded or influenced by the primary outcomes. >> no new yorker can vote for ted cruz, and no new yorker can vote for kasich. >> reporter: despite trump's bravado, john kasich who may win a handful of delegates, if he comes in second, said trump's complaints about gop rules proves he has doubts. >> we're going to go to an open convention. they are beginning to realize that. they don't like the idea of an open convention. >> trump tried harder than ever to celebrate 9/11 heroism but the effort fell short. >> i was down there, and i watched our police and our firemen down at 7/11 at the world trade center after it came down. >> trump suggested he had a personal hand cleaning up after the attacks. >> everyone who helped clear the rubble. i was there and i watched and i helped a little bit, but i want to tell you those people were
7:13 am
amazing. >> we asked the campaign what trump meant talking about being near ground zero and helping out with the cleanup trying to clarify what he was getting at. pus. ampaign never got back to >> all right. there's still time. thank you very much, major. hillary clinton downplaying talk of a big victory but appeared confident. she's feeling the bern. at the polling place in chappaqua, new york. good morning. >> reporter: governing, clinton and her husband cast their ballots in chappaqua at 8:00 a.m. eastern. there was such a large crowd of reporters around her, at one point she joked, hey, guys, this is a private ballot. outside a group of neighbors and well wishers were there to greet her. she told us that something here in her home state this past two weeks has been, in her words, a
7:14 am
joy. >> president clinton, how does it feel to finally cast your own ballot. >> it feels great. i am so excited about both campaigning in new york, voting here in new york. i love new york. >> does new york love her? clinton does have a double digit lead here but says she isn't taking anything for granted. she can't because of sanders who has been garnering massive crowds, 15,000 here, 25,000 there. he acknowledged to us yesterday that he does expect new york to be a tougher race than, say, michigan where he came from behind when he was 10 points down to win. he knows that hillary clinton has a home field advantage. the bigger challenge for him going forward is that there are five more northeastern states voting next week and almost all the polls show clinton leading in the lion's share of them. >> all right, nancy. thank you so much. john heilemann, managing editor.
7:15 am
you heard her say she hopes to wrap up the nomination today. could it be closer than expected? >> it could be closer than expected. bernie sanders has in most of these states where he spent a lot of time on the ground and air in advertising tended to close the gap. if you look at private and public polgs both campaigns have shared with some reporters, it seems like she'll win handily, whether in the high single digits, maybe low double digits. you never know what can happen on primary day. >> suppose she wins, how quickly can she wrap it up, as they say. >> the question is the definition of wrap it up. if she wins a big victory here -- wins the victory on the scale we think she'll win, she'll get a few extra delegates. if he were to somehow win by narrow margin, big upset, wouldn't gain much in terms of delegates, she had 200 delegates roughly speaking. he's got money and the inclination to keep going. she's going to have to fight in every primary and auction all
7:16 am
the way through to california. she won't wrap this up probably until the convention because she's going to need superdelegates probably, almost certainly, to be the nominee. but every contest where sanders does not close the gap by an appreciable amount is another contest in which he, in fact, is falling behind in terms of what he has to do. the math gets harder and harder for him every time he doesn't win a state 60/40 or he loses like he might tonight. >> let's look at republicans, donald trump is going to win huge according to him. now you can't say it any other way. every time i say it in my head i hear bernie sanders voice. when it comes to delegates, he doesn't seem to be holding up as well as ted cruz is garnering delegates. >> ted cruz doing well, donald trump finding footage in his home state. making powerful statements about being rigged. as your segments earlier
7:17 am
suggested, he's got a good calendar down the line for him. if he wins big tonight and continues to win big in the states ahead, there's a chance he could end up getting 1237 delegates and actually get this nomination before the cleveland convention and that is his goal. >> thank you so much. >> trump is complaining about it being rigged because he knows it's going to be an open convention. >> could be. >> you buy that? >> could be. >> thank you. rescuers from around the world traveling to ecuador to help search for victims of the country's devastating earthquake. the death toll of 413 people expected to rise. one american among the dead. people hurt and thousands need aid. in portoviejo, good morning. >> norah, good morning. so many sleeping outside, fathers, mothers, kids. they have nowhere else to go. their homes destroyed. this morning as they sleep outside, we see search and
7:18 am
rescue resuming and they are still finding people alive beneath the rubble. from beneath the rubble a sign of life. this hand belongs to a man under a shopping center in ecuador. firefighters pulled him out alive with two women monday. they were wedged between a floor and rough for more than 24 hours following devastating 7.2 magnitude earthquake. i felt she was alive, said the husband of one of the survivors. in portoviejo, rescuers worked to free a man trapped under a hotel. as news of another survivor spread, dozens rushed to the scene. we spotted this woman. she looked helpless. it was her husband, pablo, who was stuck. he had called her on his cell phone from underneath the rubble. he's alive but trapped, she told us. soon she was too overwhelmed with emotion to speak. >> you're okay. you're okay. >> moments later firefighters pulled pablo out.
7:19 am
a total of eight bodies were removed from the hotel. pablo was the only one found alive. despair and frustration are setting in. people have waited in long lines for food. some people here haven't eaten in days. the widespread destruction has left thousands of people in need of shelter and without power. ecuador's president said rebuilding could take years and cost this country billions of dollars. there have been more than 250 aftershocks, and they keep coming. gayle, every time people start running, it's because someone said, hey, i see someone under the rubble, i hear them, let's go. all the rescuers head to that location. as one rescuer said, right now we're focused on finding people. we're focused on finding those alive. we can come back for the bodies later. >> thank you, david, reporting from ecuador. scammers could be targeting your credit >> announcer: this portion of

sperm donors lies are sparking fears this morning among parents of his biological children. a lawsuit filed yesterday in california argues the georgia sperm bank misled couples ant their donor. he allegedly fathered at least 36 children. cbs news legal expert is here. >> good morning. >> first, what does the lawsuit allege? >> what the lawsuit is alleging in many, many counts is really to say that what you thought you were getting, you were not getting. you have xytex putting the profile online. this donor was supposed to be someone who had a genius iq of 160, read lots of books, played the drums, was perfectly physically healthy, well educated, and represented by someone at xytex, according to the plaintiffs, that he was
8:19 am
quote/unquote, the perfect donor. so they move these plaintiffs and others toward this donor. what was he really? he was schizophrenic. he was a criminal. he was a felon who had been convicted. he had not been to college to go on and get further degrees. >> but is there no checking to see that people represent themselves accurately? >> no. >> anybody can walk in and say, look, i'm charlie rose smart, or i'm 6'2". there's nobody that checks? >> no. let's look at what these plaintiffs really want. what they're looking for is exactly that. there is no verification. someone comes in, he did a 30-minute interview, filled out a form, checked all the boxes that he was just fine. we know he checked them off with forethought because he did say they was color blind. it's not like he just checked all nos. it's not only no verification of personal information, how much
8:20 am
did it cost to go call the university and see if he was enrolled there? how much does it cost to do a background check for criminal history? very, very little money at all. and ultimately, you could get reports and a release from doctors to find out about medical conditions. >> they've said they'll vigorously defend themselves. in this case, the donor underwent a standard medical exam. we stand by the process we followed. well, we'll see if that continues to play out. >> well, part of the problem is that although the defense is correct that they probably could have never found out about his mental illness but for the criminal case where he was found competent to stand trial but they found out that he was mentally ill. >> the call to action is fraud, misrepresentation? >> all those things. fraud, misrepresentation, negligence, unfair practices. the reason they can file it in california,

8:37 am
men, about ten centimeters. that might not seem like a lot, but it leads to a lot of twists and turns where gas can get trapped it. makes it harder for the products of digestion to get to the finish line. that's one reason anatomically. the other reason is hormonal. men have higher levels of testosterone, which means a tighter, firmer abdominal wall that holds everything in. we have have to go to the store and buy spanx. >> one of your many other talents, a built-in spanx. >> i was also surprised to learn some of the drugs we take can add to bloat. >> these drugs have been in the news a lot with heart problems, kidney disease, and now bloat. acid suppressing drugs work very effectively, which is why they're helpful for heartburn, but they also turn the ph of the stomach from acidic into alkali and turn it from an unfriendly place for gut bacteria to a friendly, hospitable environment
8:38 am
for gut bacteria to multiply and overgrow in the stomach. when gut bacteria multiply and overgrow, they bring a lot of gas. >> what is bloat exactly? >> it's excessive gas, air, in the digestive tract. >> also, some anti-depressants cause bloat. >> absolutely. they can slow down movement of things through the digestive tract and lead to a lot of backup. so healthy vegetables like broccoli, kale, cabbage come with a lot of potent cancer-fighting compounds. again, they're healthy and also indie jestable plant fiber, which is great, but they also have a carbohydrate we can't digest. so that ends up getting fermented by bacteria in the colon. lots of methane and hydrogen gas. >> the solution is when you're eating those vegetables, what? >> add lemon juice to stimulate enzymes. also, cook them with a sea vegetable that you can get at the health food store.
8:39 am
>> what's the difference between bloat and belly fat? >> so glad you asked. the first thing is that bloating ebbs and flows. in the morning, you're flat as a pancake. by the end of the day, you're popping out of your pants. there's a natural rhythm. >> you unbutton your pants. >> but there's a simple fool-proof way to tell the difference. it involves a tape measure. take a tape measure and measure your waist, which is actually between the belly button and the end of the rib cage. if you lean to the side, it's where that natural crease is. you measure your waist. you measure in the morning and measure at night over a few days. if you're bloated, there's a lot of variation in that measurement. if it's belly fat, it doesn't change by much. it's really important to know that because there's another important measurement you can do with your tape measure. that is called the weight to height ratio. take a tape measure and measure
8:40 am
around the waist here. >> what is it, 19? >> no, no, 27. i'm about 5'7". that's about 67 inches. the waist to height ratio, if that number is more than half, if your waist measurement is more than half your height, that could be a sign that you have something called metabolic syndrome, which is a major risk factor for some serious diseases. cancer, heart disease, stroke. knowing that is what we call the index essential obesity. >> get a tape measure. thank you. >> thank you so much. so great.

8:47 am
know, then don't do it. >> reporter: in a statement, they told "cbs this morning" that their police department takes seriously its public safety mission and has and will continue to monitor and enforce the laws in lunada bay. when we took our cameras there, a local officer stopped by with some advice. >> we can't send offers down there all the time, but if something happens, you have a cell phone too. >> i would never tell somebody, you know, you might have to protect yourself or you might get hurt. i would try to go take care of the problem so you don't. that's what we're supposed to do, right? >> reporter: we tried to contact the defendants in the lawsuit. none of them wanted to talk. but many who live near lunada bay say the lawsuit is blowing everything out of proportion. >> is it a gang? >> it's not a gang. it's not a gang. you have a couple of bad apples out here causing trouble. get rid of the few bad apples. >> not a few. there's easily 40 bad apples.
