6:31 pm
close as 20 miles, and their numbers are on the rise. >> dickerson: and steve hartman with a twist. why members of an orchestra wanted to thank a young audience member. >> he really touched my life in a way that i'll never forget. >> dickerson: good evening, i'm john dickerson. this is our western edition. forecasters warn the most intense storms of 2019 could hit the central u.s. this weekend and into next week. the dangerous weather is beginning tonight. a tornado was reported a short time ago near bakersfield, texas. there are no initial reports of damage. more than 40 million americans from texas to the great lakes are bracing for a possible outbreak of tornadoes, hail, and damaging winds. lonnie quinn of wcbs-tv in new york has the details. lonnie. >> reporter: well, john, i believe it's going to be a really active weekend out there. now, you talked about texas this evening, it's going to be more nebraska. you can see this red box showing a tornado watch. not a warning right now, but a watch for a good chunk of
6:32 pm
nebraska. now, this line is going to be pushing to the east-northeast. so late tonight, places like minneapolis, you can be experiencing severe weather. and then we kick off this weekend. and it could even start early saturday morning. this is 5:00 a.m., before the sun has even heated up the atmosphere, places like oklahoma city to dallas. you can already tap into severe weather. and as you go through the day, up and down the midsection of the country-- and i'm talking really the canadian border all the way down to the gulf of mexico could see severe weather. and this is an important timeframe right here. 3:00 a.m. sunday, a place like, st. louis, for example, folks are sleeping, and yet, you could have some of your strongest weather of the weekend come through at that hour. then we go into sunday. overall sunday is going to be a bit calmer. the yellows and oranges that you see in northern, say, michigan, that's going to be just heavy rain. what we look for the outbreak of tornadoes. this evening, that tornado threat is nebraska, south dakota, and western texas. tomorrow it's east texas, oklahoma and arkansas. and, john, i think early next week could be stronger still, north texas, oklahoma and kansas will really be where the bull's- eye is focused.
6:33 pm
everybody has to be on alert in that portion of the country. let's go back to you. >> dickerson: thank you, lonnie. we're learning new details tonight about the crash of an f- 16 fighter jet in riverside, california. a dashcam captured the moment the plane, armed with live munitions, fell from the sky yesterday, smashing through the roof of a warehouse. jamie yuccas is there. >> reporter: nearly a mile-long perimeter around the crash site remained off limits to the public 24 hours after a fighter jet plummeted through the roof of this warehouse near the march air reserve base. >> that's a military airplane in our building. >> reporter: business owner frank sandoval and his eight workers were inside the building when the f-16 crashed. >> we heard a loud boom, the windows blew open, the doors blew open, ceiling fixtures falling down. literally, we all could have been in that area at any given time. >> reporter: you can't believe you're alive. >> yeah, yeah. >> reporter: the pilot ejected moments before impact. officials say warehouse sprinklers helped prevent a large fire.
6:34 pm
with the area still cordoned off and a nearby freeway shut down, an explosives team combed through the wreckage, but military officials repeatedly evaded questions about exactly what was on that plane. >> the norad alert aircraft was flying with a standard armament package, but due to operational security reasons, we will not discuss the specifics of this armament package. >> reporter: officials say the ordinances were secured and will be disposed. source tell cbs news, the f-16 fighting falcon, similar to this one from the same squadron, was armed with air-to-air missiles needed for its air defense mission. do you consider this to be a miracle? >> somebody was definitely looking down on me, and whoever it was, i gotta thank them. >> reporter: at a press conference that ended just a short time ago, we learned that at least 12 people suffered nonlife-threatening injuries. the pilot was assigned to the 144th fighter wing out of south dakota. he was conducting a training mission at the time of the crash, and, john, we know that
6:35 pm
pilot is in good condition. >> dickerson: jamie yuccas for us in riverside, california. tonight, the governor of missouri is expected to sign the latest in a wave of abortion bans. we first reported on this last night. missouri lawmakers have voted to outlaw abortions after eight weeks, around the time when a heartbeat is often detected. the law allows exceptions for medical emergencies, but not in cases of rape or incest. doctors who perform abortions later could face up to 15 years in prison. 14 other states have enacted abortion bans or restrictions this year. florida's governor said today he'll fight plans by the trump administration to fly migrants from the mexican border to his state. migrants are already being flown to at least one other state as we hear from nikki battiste. >> reporter: with the surge of asylum seekers, ice and border patrol are now flying migrants from the rio grande valley in southern texas to cities across
6:36 pm
the country. a scene that unfolded tonight in san diego, when 100 migrants arrived for processing. this comes one day after two south florida counties were upset with a plan that would bring thousands of migrants there. >> we cannot accommodate in florida just dumping unlawful migrants into our state. >> reporter: florida governor ron desantis: >> i think it will tax our resources. the schools, the health care, law enforcement, state agencies. >> reporter: cbs news reached out to the department of homeland security and the white house, but neither has responded. though some of these are not sanctuary cities, trump is boasting about moving migrants. >> now, we're sending many of them to sanctuary cities. thank you very much. i'm proud to tell you that was actually my sick idea, but. >> reporter: florida officials have been told to expect two plane loads of migrants each week, up to 1,000 people a month split between palm beach and broward counties.
6:37 pm
both are democratic strongholds. the migrants do not face criminal charges, but would likely be released into the community awaiting immigration hearings. cbs news reporting found that 80% of the beds at the nation's largest detention center for immigrant families in dilley, texas, were empty last month. but u.s. customs and border protections' brian hastings says they're overwhelmed. >> the crisis at hand is causing us to look at multiple different locations where we have capacity to process, to fly these individuals to, simply so we can process them into the system. >> reporter: florida has no designated shelters or government funding for food and security for migrants. broward county's mayor says he's worried about them becoming homeless. florida is expecting migrants to arrive, john, in about two weeks. >> dickerson: nikki battiste. thank you, nikki. a new type of oil industry is booming. stores across the country are selling products containing c.b.d. oil found in hemp plants.
6:38 pm
c.b.d. products are not intended to make users high, but they have created a fog of legal and regulatory confusion. here's barry petersen. >> i need two of the lip balms. >> reporter: heather kaufman gaugein and her son sell c.b.d. oils in their small scottsdale shop. >> it has not only helped me but it has helped numerous friends. there's nothing wrong with it. >> reporter: but here in nebraska, the attorney general calls cannabidiol, or c.b.d., an illegal drug, just like marijuana. so police shut the shop down. the confusion about c.b.d.s here in scottsbluff is just a reflection of a nation's patchwork quilt of laws. what's illegal here in nebraska and some states, in other places it's just no big deal. just look at a map where 10 states allow it, 18 others only with a prescription, 19 with no clear rule, and three that consider it illegal. so there have been raids from
6:39 pm
new york to texas by authorities who say it's a marijuana-type drug, but c.b.d. products come from a different plant, hemp. what sometimes, c.b.d. products can have trace amounts of t.h.c., the ingredient in marijuana that gets people high. proponents say c.b.d. products, now an almost-$600 million industry, can ease everything from aches and pains to stress. in the end, the county attorney in scottsbluff decided not to prosecute. >> in nebraska, c.b.d. oil is absolutely illegal at this time. >> reporter: so police chief kevin spencer faces something he's never seen. so what's the point of enforcing the law in your situation? >> absolutely, absolutely. >> so, you shake it. >> reporter: and business is good at beguin's store. >> i want to help others. >> reporter: that's why you keep going? >> that's why i keep going. >> reporter: keep going, at
6:40 pm
least for the moment. barry petersen, cbs news, scottsbluff, nebraska. >> dickerson: attorney general william barr today defended his investigation of the investigators. barr is reviewing how the russia investigation began, focusing on u.s. intelligence gathering on associates of the trump campaign in 2016. more now from paula reid. >> reporter: in his first interview since becoming attorney general, william barr doubled down on his claim the trump campaign was spied on, telling "the wall street journal," "government power was used to spy on american citizens." the investigation into russian election meddling began in july 2016 at the height of the presidential campaign. barr suggested that was unusual in an interview with fox news. >> it wasn't handled in the ordinary way that investigations or counterintelligence activities are conducted. >> reporter: barr would not elaborate on what prompted his concerns, but he has appointed the u.s. attorney in connecticut
6:41 pm
to review the origins of the investigation. democrats and some former law enforcement officials have accused barr of trying to appease the president, who has offered nothing but praise for his new attorney general. >> doing a great job. >> reporter: just hours after barr's interviews, the president tweeted, "my campaign for president was conclusively spied on," and he celebrated the departures of top intelligence officials involved in the investigation. >> comey, brennon, clapper-- we're draining the swamp, folks. >> reporter: but former deputy attorney general rod rosenstein and f.b.i. director christopher wray have both said the russian investigation was appropriate and legal. last week, wray distanced himself from barr's use of the term "spying." >> well, that's not the term i would use. >> reporter: the justice department's inspector general is also reviewing how the russia investigation was handled. he's expected to issue his report as soon as this month. john. >> dickerson: paula reid at the white house.

6:43 pm
address the issues. we were in the middle of the interview, and all of a sudden these lights came flying off the wall. >> you know an average person-- jesus, mary and joseph! >> i was like, those wouldn't have been the first words out of my mouth. i think one of the biggest stories of my career had to have been covering the presidential campaign of barack obama. do you think the country is ready for a black president? >> yes. >> reporter: it's been a pretty good way to spend 30 years. and i have always tried to share with the audience everything that i've learned. what kind of a reading are we getting? and the goal has always been to help them think, help them decide, and occasionally, you get to make a difference. >> dickerson: steve will discuss his plans on sunday on "60 minutes." the program will celebrate his career with a special tribute broadcast in september. next on the cbs evening news, why great white sharks are suddenly gathering off the carolinas. later, gayle king with a glimpse
