7:04 am
houston causing flash flooding in streets. one man waiting for a bus had to stand on a bus just to get away from the water. let's get more from ed curran from wbbm. >> good morning. we have a lot of action happening from southern texas to louisiana and all the way up through nebraska here. it's along this line of showers and thunderstorms we're watching that we expect we can see some severe weather today. there is a slight chance of severe from southern texas up through kansas and nebraska a slight chance for severe tomorrow. this all shifts to the east. the chance of severe may be an isolated tornado or two, mostly heavy thunderstorm winds today and tomorrow with damaging hail possible as well. tomorrow we also introduce an enhanced risk of severe. again, isolated tornados possible throughout the area here with a slight chance to see

some severe weather in the form of heavy hail severe hail and that type of thing through the area. look at these temperatures today, though. 87 in sacramento 75 degrees in fargo, 60 degrees in chicago, but away from lake michigan it will be in the mid-70s. 78 in new york. enjoy these warm temps because a cooler pattern sets up as we head into the rest of the week. anthony, vinita? >> we like seeing those temperatures. ed curran, thank you. the islamic state is claiming responsibility for a string of attacks in iraq. there was an attack outside a u.s. consulate inner erbil. holly williams is in is stan bull with the latest. >> reporter: iraqi officials say the suicide bomber was spotted and stopped before reaching the
7:06 am
u.s. consulate in erbil which is surrounded by a blast wall to protect it from attacks like this one. no americans were killed in the bombing, but two guards reportedly lost their lives. erbil is the capital of iraq's kurdish autonomous region and kurdish fighters have helped lead the battle against isis in iraq making erbil a target for the extremists. but this is a rare example of isis militants actually infiltrating the area. in baghdad yesterday where suicide bombings are far more common isis claimed responsibility for two blasts that killed 27 people according to iraqi officials. also yesterday iraq's government claimed to have killed saddam hussein's former deputy, izzat al douri. al douri played a leading role during the insurgency following the invasion of iraq in 2003 and

there was a $10 million reward for information leading to his capture. it's thought al douri later aligned himself with isis. his supporters have denied that he was killed. anthony. >> holly williams in is stan bull. suspects include two 18-year-olds, another 18-year-old was arrested on weapons charges and two other men aged 18 and 19 are also in custody. all are alleged to have been preparing an attack at a veterans day ceremony later this month that included targeting police officers. 11 people were injured, three were hospitalized after a natural gas pipeline ignited next to a highway in fresno california. witnesses say the blast shot flames more than 100 feet into the air. a major highway in the area was closed for three hours. nearby rail service was suspended. the cause of the blast has not yet been determined.
7:08 am
there have been a number of challenges to security in washington lately including the protester who landed a gyrocopter on the capitol lawn this week. but there was some progress on one front this week a way to keep intruders from climbing over the white house fence. here's homeland security correspondent. >> reporter: these spikes will be positioned on the white house fence. last year a man made it deep into the mansion. just over another month another man scaled the fence but was quickly arrested. in january a drone landed on the white house grounds. then on wednesday that gyrocopter pierced restricted airspace and came kaimdown on the lawn. tom ridge says breaches often lead to important lessons. >> we should not have a failure of imagination. there was a breach on the congressional lawn there was a breach at the white house. don't think that our enemies may
7:09 am
use these old protocols, these old approaches. they may apply the lessons learned themselves. >> reporter: after september 11th security was enhanced but smaller incidents have revealed weaknesses. the u.s. northern command is one of the agencies responsible for enforcing d.c.'s restricted airspace. it acknowledged the difficulty of detecting a low, slow flyer like a gyrocopter that on radar can be mistaken for a bird. the military is testing a new type of blimp that would detect smaller aircraft. senator ron johnson of wisconsin. >> i'm hoping that this thing was not undetected that it actually was detected and people just decided to use restraint to save this gentleman's life. if that is the case that he flew under the radar, we have serious problems. >> reporter: ridge says the small security breaches highlight the real threat
7:10 am
homegrown terrorism and real attacks. there have been at least 20 terrorism-related attacks. president obama is speaking out about the long delay to confirm his nominee for attorney general. loretta lynch is the u.s. attorney for the eastern district of new york. on friday the president complained about senate dysfunction. >> and yet what we still have is this crazy situation where a woman who everybody agrees is qualified has been now sitting there longer than the previous seven attorney general nominees combined. and there's no reason for it. >> lynch would be the first african-american woman to be attorney general. she would succeed eric holder. republicans agree, some republicans, that lynch should be confirmed. >> i think presidents have the right to pick their team in general. if someone is supportive of the president's policies whether
7:11 am
you agree with them or not, there should be some deference to the executive. this should not always be partisan. look i hope the longer it takes to confirm her, the longer eric holder stays as attorney general, look at it that way. >> the senate may finally clear the way for a vote on lynch next week. tomorrow morning on "face the nation" guests will include senator and presidential candidate marco rubio, republican of florida, and senator joe manchin, democrat of west virginia. 20 years ago tomorrow domestic terrorist timothy mcveigh and his co-conspirators set off an enormous truck bomb outside the alfred p. murrah building in oklahoma city. the blast killed 168 people including 19 children in the building's day care center. anna werner revisited the site and revisited this awful day. >> don't know what happened just a blast. >> reporter: the scenes are unforgettable. the federal building, the facade
7:12 am
blown off. first responders desperately trying to save the lives of children pulled from the building's day care center. >> can you tell me your name? >> reporter: the denny children 2-year-old rebecca and her 3-year-old brother branden, were among six children pulled from the rubble alive. branden had debris embedded in his head. >> how's daddy and mommy's big boy? >> reporter: his father rushed to his bedside. >> kisses kisses. i love you, honey. i love you, baby. >> reporter: scott pelley spoke with jim denny that night. >> you've seen the building. >> i've seen the building what's left of it. >> it's a miracle you have your children today. >> it's an absolute miracle. >> reporter: 20 years later jim and claudia denny say their family has survived the bombing but that was just a beginning. >> it's with us every hour of every hour. >> reporter: doctors thought their son, branden would never walk again. he graduated high school and
7:13 am
works for good will. his parents say he understands everything going on around him but still has trouble speaking. >> he was healthy and had all the potential in the world, and this bombing, you know he has limited capabilities now. >> reporter: their daughter rebecca, recovered from minor injuries. she graduates from college soon and is getting married. but the dennys can't forget the 19 other children killed that day. >> next to her was her wonderful son. >> reporter: they often visit the city memorial to honor those they knew and they keep talking about that day for a reason. >> we hope we can be an inspiration to other people who are going through tough times. we're not the only family that goes through tough times. >> this is the way i live my life is i have my best day every day because i don't know what's going to happen tomorrow. >> reporter: the family has suffered financially as well because jim denny had to quit his job to care for his son. there's a fund-raiser for them this weekend, and of course the
7:14 am
family will be here for the memorial service on sunday. for "cbs this morning saturday," anna werner, oklahoma city. now to the california drought. scientists say the long awaited el nino weather pattern is finally arriving in the pacific, but can it keep the state from completely dry up? brian walsh covers environmental stories for "time" magazine and is now their editor. i think el nino is one of those terms people don't know what it references. what is the basic definition? >> it's a periodic weather pattern. what it means is that you have above average temperatures. that creates a lot of additional energy that gets transported into the atmosphere and ends up changing sort of trade wind patterns that go all around the globe and ends up affecting weather patterns really on every spot of the planet. >> there are a lot of wild cards in the forecast for this though, right? >> absolutely. at this point scientists know it's happening. it has an official category but they don't know how long it will last or how strong it will be and that makes a difference in
7:15 am
terms of weather. >> everybody is talking about what's happening on the other coast. california has been in drought for four years. do you think el nino could bring well-needed water to them? >> it could. if we're talking about a strong lasting el nino that continues on into maybe even next year you will likely see larger than normal amounts of rainfall in northern california and other parts of the state. usually in the fall and the winters it's rainier there. that's positive for california. but to get out of a drought of this magnitude which might be the worst in over a thousand years, you're going to need years and years of twice normal rainfall, three times normal rainfall and one el nino might not be enough to do it. >> that's my next question. if el nino isn't enough what does california do? >> beyond just hoping for additional rainfall you really need to work on how you are using your water. you can try to deal better with irrigation, think about how to use ground water, how to use water on lawns. the state is taking some steps but you're in a situation where you have the biggest state in the entire country facing very
7:16 am
strict water standards and that's going to be very hard going forward. >> what do you say to someone who says this doesn't really affect me. why is it important that we understand what's happening? >> just in terms of what effect it will have on the drought, californians are very affected by that. but 80% of that water goes to agriculture and that goes to food that feeds around the country. so in terms of its water and farming is felt by every person in america. >> do you think the 25% limit in california, the 25% reduction in mandated water use is going to be enough? >> not by itself. it's very difficult to actually implement. but that was just affecting water used by houses used by businesses. it's really water used by farming that needs to be dealt with and that's going to be hard going forward because california has a lot of great things about farming, great weather, where it doesn't have a lot of water. >> brian walsh, thank you very much. we're hoping for a strong el nino. basketball hall of famer kareem abdul-jabbar is recovering from quadruple bypass

7:18 am
in this week's marathon half marathon and 10k, joining north korean runners in the capital of this infamously reclusive country. >> simply just by stating i'm going to pyongyang to run, they second look at you. >> reporter: nicholas bonner who also ran this week brought more than 250 participants to north korea through his beijing based travel company. >> there's quite an argument to be made against bringing tourists bringing money to this regime. >> certainly understandable. but to me it's the very fact that it's exposing a korean population to foreigners. they have no internet they have no access to the outside world and it's this exposure that i think has such a meaningful attribute for the north korean population. >> reporter: sunday's marathon has been held for 27 years as part of a series of events marking the birthday of the

time now for "morning rounds" with dr. jon lapook and
7:37 am
holly phillips. actress and singer rita wilson revealed she is recovering from a double mastectomy. the wife of tom hanks says a second opinion helped spot her breast cancer early. holly, rita wilson says that the first pathologist she went do did not diagnose her with cancer and she's posted on facebook that, quote, a second opinion is necessary and vital, not just by another doctor but by another pathologist. is this good advice? >> i do think it's really good advice. i also like the way she emphasized the important role pathologists play in this whole process. often women when faced with a cancer diagnosis will go and get a second opinion either from the surgeon or from the oncologist. we forget that the pathologist is actually the person who in large part directs the rest of the care. when a woman is facing a cancer diagnosis, she sushlly lyusually has a biopsy of the breast. the pathologist's job is to look at the tissue under a microscope and determine whether there's cancer there or not cancer
7:38 am
there. there's also a gray area in the middle where it's a little bit subject to opinion and that's when a second opinion is really really vital. >> so what was her diagnosis? i mean because it seems like the double mastectomy is an aggressive solution. >> sure, it is. we don't have all of the details of her diagnosis, of course but we do know she was given the diagnosis of invasive lobular cancer which was early stage so her cure rate would be about 98%. there are other less invasive ways to treat the cancer. she could have had a lumpectomy where you just remove the cancer cells from the breast or a single mastectomy where you just take the breast that's affected or a double mastectomy. in all cases, sometimes you follow up with radiation and medication. but it's a very personal decision and one that you have to make with your doctor. up next a recent study found a new treatment for epilepsy is showing great promise. jon. >> this new treatment uses a marijuana extract. while this was an early trial, the researchers found it could help curb seizures for those
7:39 am
with severe epilepsy. from age 1, hank suffered from severe epilepsy that could not be controlled with medicine. his mother megan, says in one day he could have more than 25 seizures. >> i thought he was playing in the other room. he was not playing in the other room, he was convulsing turning blue, and that's when i thought i lost him. >> you've been such a good boy getting all hooked up. >> reporter: last summer she eagerly enrolled her son in a small trial designed to see if medical marijuana can help. twice a day hank received a marijuana extract. it does not contain thc, that can cause paranoia. the change has been dramatic. >> we instantly saw results. he was smiling again. we noticed a decrease in seizures. he was able to transition. at this point he was finally able to gain cognitive skills. >> reporter: 137 children and
7:40 am
young adults average age 11 were given the drug. after 12 weeks parents reported the number of seizures declined 45% to 50%. dr. linda locks in chicago is one of the researchers. >> some of the kids clearly became more verbal better coordination. i had one child who started walking while they were using the medication. >> where's harold the helicopter? >> reporter: hank's epilepsy was so severe at age 7 he still cannot speak. he's able to attend school and hasn't had a seizure in months. >> my goal for him is to hear his voice, to hear him talk. we just want him to be happy. >> such a great outcome for that family. what do you see as the next step? >> more research larger trials and they need to be placebo controlled. that's very, very important. and then over time as we learn more and more we can find out the exact dosage that's needed to be used because right now it's kind of been up in the air about exactly how do we give
7:41 am
this medicine. now we'll have some real science. next up, a new report finds e- e-cigarette use is skyrocketing among middle and high school students. we've talked a lot about e- e-cigarettes and this is something we were worried about. >> very much so and skyrocketing is the right term. when you look at just one year of e-cigarette use in high school students, in 2013 that number was 4.5% of high school students using. in 2014 it went up to 13.4%. same thing in middle school students. e-cigarette use more than tripled during that period of time. in fact e-cigarette use has surpassed the use of all other tobacco products by kids and teens, including regular cigarettes. >> it's not hard to believe when you consider the flavors they're marketing. but are those flavors adding any additional chemicals? >> they are. there's an author named james pankow. he looked at 30 samples from the
7:42 am
liquid used in the e-cigarettes and refills and what chemicals are there? they found a bunch of chemicals including a class called aldahydes. these are thought to be they're safe they're just food coloring and additives, but that's when you eat it. it's really not known what happens when you smoke it. and specifically dr. pankow said if you like cherry and vanilla, those typically tend to have compounds that can be irritating. new research at duke university is shedding light on a possible cause of alzheimer's disease. the findings could pave the way for new drug treatments. jon, what did this new research uncover? >> this was such elegant research out of duke university. i spoke to one of the authors. we talk about amyloid that causes plaque and we talk about abnormal protein inside of nerve cells and we thought that's the story. now there's something else. there are these supportive cells in the brain called microglia.
7:43 am
and they are dampen down immune reactions. it turns out there is an amino acid called arganine. remember that from chemistry? not really? well, it is important for the health of nerves and especially nerves in the brain. so it turns out that these microglia cells make something called arganase. in this mouse model of alzheimer's disease, they found out that the arganase levels went up the arganine levels went down and you had development of nerve death and trouble in terms of symptoms of alzheimer's, memory problems in these mice. incredibly, when you gave something to block this arganase, you could prevent the development of the alzheimer's and plaque and memory loss.
7:44 am
a lot of work to be done. but i found it interesting they went to something totally different. you're going to hear about microenvironment. what's going on at the level of the inside of the brain, at the nerves at the connective tissues, what's going on that we don't know about yet. finally this morning dogs are man's best friend and thanks to a new study we know why. research released this week suggests that eye contact between man and canine companions helped to secure a dog's place in the human heart. they're like babies. >> very much so. it actually comes down to a hormone in the brain called oxy oxytocin. it's a feel good hormone, it's released in times of bonding between mothers and children and between partners. apparently between species as well. >> and i love it that it's between species. the authors talk about that fact. what's so interesting is it's not just among humans it's two
7:45 am
different species. it's like the dogs have hijacked this mechanism and said we've got to get some of that loving too. >> dr. jon lapook dr. holly phillips, thanks so much. it was a pigbig debut for etsy on wall street. we'll find out why it's a billion dollar business. you're watching "cbs this morning saturday."

7:49 am
conscious company this is. >> this is being defined as a b corp. it is a certification and it means that the company adheres to certain core values. social which is very important, environmental, has to be transparent and it has accountability guidelines with both the community and its workers. its set by this nonprofit organization called b-lab. i like to think of it as a certificate fiction for being a really do-gooder kind of company. >> this company has had a very interesting birth and has really thrived because it's been driven by people who make things themselves and were looking for a market to sell them. >> it started in 2005 but it really emerged and exploded during the recession, of all places. a lot of people who were making some big, tough decisions about their financial lives said hey, i can sell my own crafts on this marketplace, this internet marketplace, and as a result
