ayanna pressley defeats a ten-term democratic incumbent in the massachusetts house primary. and do not eat, serve, or sell honey smacks. that's the message the cdc is trying to get out after dozens of people fall ill across the country. good morning from the studio 57 newsroom at cbs news headquarters here in new york. good to be with you. i'm anne-marie green. well, this morning tropical storm gordon is moving in quickly as it moves across louisiana and mississippi. gordon made landfall last night just under hurricane strength on the gulf coast west of alabama and mississippi. some areas could see as much as 8 inches of rain as the storm moves in. in pensacola, florida, the storm is blamed for one death, and nearly 30,000 people are without power in alabama and the florida panhandle. laura podesta is here in new york. good morning, laura.
>> good morning, anne-marie. yes. as you mentioned, there's a threat of heavy flooding. we're also hearing reports of isolated tornadoes. so even though the storm is moving inland and quickly losing strength, it's still creating a lot of problems. a child died when a tree fell onto a trailer in pensacola, florida, last night as tropical storm gordon came ashore. 70-mile-per-hour winds knocked down trees throughout the gulf coast, leaving thousands of people without power. police in pascagoula, mississippi, warned residents to stay off the road. they posted a picture of first responders dealing with injuries after an accident. john and robin berry are vacationing on dawson island, alabama. they were forced to move inland for fear of heavy flooding.
>> there are no dunes and no protecti protection. >> by nightfall visibility was near zero as waved crashed ashore, flooding the island. powerful winds destroyed this billboard. shrimp boats were tied down as the storm passed through. many people spent the days leading up to gordon preparing for the worst. >> of course, we always have that nervousness and never hope we have to go through katrina again. >> they all declared states of emergency. >> the storm is moving. what we do not want it do is go out on the warm water to pick up more moisture and then strike our gulf coast. >> meteorologists say the storm's earlier-than-expected arrival helped limit its strength. and some schools in mississippi and alabama are closed today. anne-marie? >> laura podesta here in new york. thank you so much, laura. paul deanno, chief meteorologist at our san
francisco station kpix, is following the storm. >> even though gordon made landfall last night, we'll continue to talk about the storm likely for the next five days because of the tremendous amount of rainfall that will come from tropical storm gordon. take a look at the storm's signature as it made landfall last night. it's moving inland, but now the big story is it's going to slow down, and here is the five-day forecast cone for gordon. it will just be a remnant area of low pressure, but that doesn't matter when it comes to rain. it's going to carry a tremendous amount of rain northward to michigan, wisconsin, and illinois, and that means flooding is likely over the next five days. futurecast predicts the areas shaded in purple will be getting more than 2 inches of rainfall in the next two days. yellow, 5 to 10 inches. it could lead to flooding. the storm is slowing down.
that trend continues over the day today as it's moving over land and not the gulf of mexico. heavy rain is expected over florida and arkansas. once it interacts with the cold front, the flood potential will be extreme all the way north to michigan. i'm chief meteorologist paul deanno for cbs news in san francisco. it is day two for supreme court nominee brett kavanaugh's hearing. yesterday there were lots of contentions. democrats tried to block the proceedings but failed. today kavanaugh will be questioned by members of the judiciary committee. kavanaugh spoke yesterday about the importance of an independent judiciary and the need to keep the court above partisan politics. ahead this morning we'll hear from senator chuck grassley, chairman of the senate judicial committee.
bob woodward's explosive new book, trump says, is a con on the white house. it details allegedly disparaging remark by some of mr. trump's senior advisers and there are concerns about mr. trump's behavior. late yesterday on twitter the president denied one claim that he called attorney general jeff sessions mentally retarded and a dumb southerner. david martin has more. >> reporter: white house chief of staff john kelly said of president trump, he's an idiot. it's pointless to try to convince him of anything. he's gone off the rails. we're in crazy town. defense secretary james mattis told close associates his commander in chief acted like and had the understanding of a fifth or sixth grader. kelly and mattis denied the comments, but the book is filled with derogatory descriptions of the president by senior advisers. woodward's devastating account is called "fear: trump in the white house." it hasn't been published yet, but the white house said it's nothing more than fabricated
stories told to make the president look bad. woodward tried but was not granted an interview with the president. in a brief phone conversation last month woodward warned him what was coming. >> it's a tough look at the world and your administration and you. >> right. well, i assume that's going to be a negative book. >> reporter: in woodward's telling, his book tells not what they might do to him but what he might do to the country. defense secretary mattis tried to convince the president of the value of military alliance and free trade agreements. but the president declared, "this is all b.s.," and according to woodward, one of the president's attorneys john dowd felt he would commit perjury if interviewed. dowd who has since resigned believed the president had nothing to hide, but was incapable of giving simple answers. don't testify, dowd warned. it's either that or an orange
jumpsuit. the book ends with this sentence. trump had one overriding problem that dowd knew but could not bring himself to say to the president, quote, you're an effing liar. dowd has issued a statement denying he ever called the president a liar, but i can tell after interviewing woodward, he's very confident of the information, much of which was made by diaries and notes of the participating events. >> we should note the book is published by simon & schuster, a division of cbs. now, special counsel robert mueller would let the president answer questions about potential coordination between his campaign and russia in writing. mueller may still seek an in-person interview with mr. trump. mueller and the white house have been negotiating for months over under what conditions the
president would sit for an interview. and now for politics and an upset in a massachusetts primary. boston city council member ayanna presley beat the incumbent michael capuano. he served ten terms and is the second democrat and fourth house incumbent to lose the primary. since there is no republican candidate in the race, pressley is set to become the first black woman elected to the house from massachusetts. >> with our rights under assault, with our freedoms under siege, that it's not just good enough to see the democrats back in power, but it matters who those democrats are. >> massachusetts's seventh district includes much of boston and is the only massachusetts congressional district home to more nonwhites than whites. it's important to note that the company theranos is dissolving.
theranos allegedly made people believe they could test from a few drops of blood when it couldn't. "the wall street journal" reports in an email to shareholders yesterday, theranos will pay creditors its remaining cash. yesterday timothy piazza's family reached a settlement with the fraternity. he died from hazing due to drinking in 2017. he was heavily intoxicated and fell down a flight of stairs. fraternity members tried to wake him up, but they didn't call 911 until the next day. they can't proceed with claims against individuals involved in their son's death. coming up on the "cbs "morning news,"" new frat house rules. and a job offer. a former cosby show star may soon have a new acting gig after being shamed for working at trader joe's. this is the "cbs morning news." gig after
