of insanity. >> demonstrators marked the disappearance of 43 college students. >> all that -- >> no way. >> what? >> no way. he caught that. >> -- and all that matters -- >> john dickerson here getting used to getting up every sunday morning, even the sunday morning after the white house correspondents' dinner. the truth of the matter is i may still be at the white house. >> -- on "cbs this morning." >> being president is never easy. i still have to fix a broken immigration system issue veto threats, negotiate with iran all while finding time to pray five times a day. >> announcer: this morning's "eye opener" presented by toyota. let's go places. envelope captioning funded by cbs welcome to "cbs this morning." the ground is still shaking in
nepal more than two days after a giant earthquake. repeated aftershocks, frightened survivors, and delaying the rescue response. saturday's 7.8 magnitude quake is the worst in 81 years. the death toll has jumped to eded to more than 3,800. that includes three americans. many are trapped on mt. everest. >> holly williams is in kathmandu where survivors are jamming the roads trying to get out. holly, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. they're still digging through the rubble here in kathmandu, hoping to find survivors but expecting to discover many more bodies. the ground began to heave in nepal at midday on saturday. this security video captured the violent tremors. in just a few minutes, the quake raised buildings to the ground
splintered tarmac roads, and claimed mo the wounded, some with head and spine injuries poured into nepal's hospitals. many of them poorly equipped for a disaster like this one. in the ancient heart of nepal's capital, several centuries' old hindu temples were leveled. this morning we found this search team working furiously digging through the rubble with shovels and each their bare hands. most of them like this man are volunteers who are hoping to find survivors. >> slim, but we can do what we can do. that's all we're doing. >> reporter: this teenage girl was found alive by another rescue team today. they used crowbars to free her from the debris. they've already begun to cremate their dead in nepal, light hindu
funeral pyres for their loved ones. still the aftershocks keep coming jaunting a nation already on edge. thousands of people are sleeping on the street not because their homes were destroyed, but because they're fearful of being inside if another tremor shakes buildings to their foundations. this woman has set up camp with 20 of her family members and describes what it was like when the earthquake hit. >> we thought we wouldn't be alive in the morning. >> you thought you were going to die. >> yes. >> reporter: there were more after aftershocks last night and as long as they continue people will stay here on the street, too frightened to go home. >> it is just frightening watching from new york isn't it? >> amazing. six times more powerful than the storm. >> and they say the death toll is going to get worse.
we thank you, holly williams in kathmandu. firefighters left for kathmandu late last night. some of them are at mt. everest evacuating climbers who survived this deadly avalanche that nearly wiped out a base camp on the mountain. elizabeth palmer is tracking the incredibly difficult rescue from london. elizabeth, good morning. >> good morning to you. that everest base camp you mentioned is only roughly a hundred miles north and east of the epicenter, so the effect of the quake on the mountain was dramatic. first the earth heaved and shook. then a huge avalanche thundered toward the sprawling every rest base camp. german climber and his companions managed to take cover, but at least 18 people died including the google executive dan fredinburg from
california who had been training hard to make his second attempt at scaling mt. everest. marisa eve girl tom tam lin linlin. >> he loved to travel. >> reporter: here's where the evidence roared through the base camp but here at camps 1 and 2 hundreds are trapped. carsten peterson was heading to base camp when the avalanche struck. >> ten minutes before the
avalanche. had we walked slower we would have been thrown into the rocks somewhere. >> reporter: today a helicopter rescue effort is in full swing but with the high altitude only two can be rescued at a time. these among the cold were the first to be brought safely down the mountain. for now the weather is good but rescuers fear it's not going to stay that way. those aftershocks just keep on coming with terrifying consequences as one of the climbers tweeted in camp 1, it's so unstable that rocks fall and minor avalanches occur constantly. my heart leaps every time the earth moves. gayle? >> thank you, elizabeth palmer in london. scientists say this earthquake was 16 times more powerful than the earthquake that killed thousands in haiti back in 2010. we'll look at it ahead on "cbs this morning." severe storms are threatening many across the south this morning.
at least 19 reports of tornados were recorded overnight. the storms brought high winds, hail storms and flooding. thousands are without power as the threat continues. our reporter is in texas. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. this mangled mess over here is part of a canopy from a gas station. and look at this. this is a trailer of an 18-wheeler that landed on its side and damage like this is being reported well across the region. a tornado struck across north central texas syunda afternoon bringing high winds up to 80 miles an hour. more twisters touched town well after dark downing trees and power lines, tearing off rooftops and spreading debris across roads. this big rig tanker trailer overturned on its side. >> we've got softball-sized hail
going on. i'm okay. i just got glass all over me. >> reporter: softball-sized hail blanketed cars and yards keeping experienced storm chasers on their toes. >> oh, my gosh. this is the biggest storm i've ever seen. [ sirens ] >> reporter: tdoorna warnings were happening all across. one captured the electric intensity from the air. back on the ground, heavy flooding has left many roads impassable. and that heavy flooding is expected throughout the morning. i'm told there are a number of water rescues under way right now. no injuries have been reported after the storms. norah? >> thank you. at least two are dead and five are missing after a powerful storm capsized several
boats in alabama's bay. vicente arenas is tracking it from miami. vicente, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, norah. the weather was just fine when the regatta first got started but by 3:00 in the afternoon the national weather service issue add storm warning in mobile bay saying boaters should already take shelter, but for boaters already out on the water, it was too late. >> whoa. turn down. turn down. >> reporter: with a powerful storm quickly barreling down on them. jesh and others on this boat had no choice but to ride it out. the group finds a much smaller boat struggling against 70-mile-an-hour winds. moments later it disappears and the storm worsens. they're safe but several people are missing. >> when it was lined up people
were all over the place. >> reporter: more than 100 sailboats were participating the dolphinauphin island regatta when the storm hit saturday afternoon. officials are investigating whether the race should have been canceled. >> at this point we're still focused on the search and rescue side of this. >> reporter: randy rutledge and his wife were rescued. >> i said, jesus. >> yep. >> and the storm subsided just enough that i could keep my head up. >> reporter: search and rescue teams have covered more than 1,700 square miles in search of survivors. >> we're working our hardest to bring those still missing back to their families. >> reporter: we reached out to the fair hope yacht club the organizers for the event but pthey didn't have a comment. today when crews go out to look for more survivors, they face a
chance of more thunderstorms. charlie? >> vicente, thanks. the lawyers will try to show why the convicted boston marathon bomber should spend life in prison instead of getting the death penalty. the prosecutors' witnesses issued emotional testimony last week. rikki klieman is with us, good morning. >> good morning. >> how did they do in their summation? >> the prosecution's case was absolutely devastating. we have to remember what the jurors have heard and seen are things that no human being have to live through. it's as if the jurors have been part of the carnage, have been victims of the carnage. they, too, may be suffering from this evidence. so to overcome the prosecution's penalty phase borders on the impossible. >> some of the most difficult testimony came from witnesses for martin richard. >> they wrote a letter.
it was on the front page of "the boston globe," not in the opinion section. there have been other victims who have supported life in prison. the jurors should not know about that. however, you have an interesting question here. jurors probably won't make any different to them that the richards parents did not testify in the penalty phase because they've heard from martin richards' father in the guilt phase. what is the defense to do? should the defense dare to ever call martin richards' parents in the penalty phase, i would never do it. i think it's true cruel. but might they send an emissary like an investigator to find out if someone like the richards' family or someone for them might testify. high-risk move. >> he's certainly indicated he doesn't mind if he gets the death penalty. >> he was looking for martyr dom
in the boat jealous of his brother's martyrdom. life in prison is far worse. polls show there are more people in favor of life, that perhaps that is the best alternative. if you put him on the stand or he dares to take the stand over your objections, he might just ask for death. the jurors could spite him and give him life. >> rickykki kliemany klieman, thanks. freddie gray's death sparked a week of protests. >> he's a photographer! >> a photographer said he was taken down by police officers as it turned violent. police said it can be difficult to tell media from protesters. baltimore said police are doing a good job. >> i was extremely proud of the
men and women in blue who worked yesterday to facilitate the peaceful protest. >> police ended up arresting 35 people. >> there are new revelation this morning about the u.s. drone program that mistakenly killed american hostage warren weinstein in january. "the wall street journal" said president obama signed off on loser rules for those drone strike inside pakistan. the policy gives the cia flexibility to bypass standards to put flexibility in place to protect people in other countries. julianna goldman is in washington with the evolving debate. julianna, good morning. >> good morning. well, those details come on the heels of learning that warren weinstein's family paid $250,000 in 2012 to try and free him despite the government prohibiting such payments and now officials are acknowledging
they need to be more sensitive to the families of u.s. hostages abroad. the families of u.s. hostages complain they've been kept in dark with the government holding back timely information, often dragging them through a bureaucratic rest. a close friend of murder eded steven steven. >> we had meetings with them and basically he bullied and they were scared. >> the family of james foley were threatened with prosecution if they tried to make a ransom payment to rescue their loved one. his mother diane foley told the cbs news the potential changes are a positive step but a baby step. >> the goal of the review is to try too address those frustrations whoor while they're work to retain the no ransom policy, they will recommend that families not be threatened with
prosecution. also they'll work with a broader group of government agencies including the state department and the fbi instead of the case officer currently assigned to the families. officials are also looking at best ways to share intelligence with families including hostage whereabouts which is often classified. chris boss a former lead negotiator for the fbi says the case of warren weinstein says this is what can happen. >> this is the outcome when they get no help from the government. when the government looks the other way. a quarter of a million dollars ends up in the pockets of hostage takers and the hostages end up dead. >> a u.s. official said last week's dramatic turn of events with news of warren weinstein's death may slow down the process, but, norah, they still expect it to be completed within weeks.
>> all right julianna. thank you. the clinton foundation admits it made mistakes in its public listing of listers. they say government grants were not properly identified to the grantses. instead those contributions were lumped in with other donations. questions about the foundation's fund razes have arisen since hillary clinton started her campaign two weeks ago. a woman is suing over what she caused excessive force.

. i invited luther my anger translator to join me tonight. in our fast-changing world, conditions like the white house correspondents' dinner are important. >> i mean really. what is this thing and why am i required to come to it? >> we do need to stay focused on big challenges like climate change. >> listen y'all. in case you haven't noticed. california is bone dried. it looks like a trailer for a new mad max movie. >> one of the halves of key & peele. i thought he was hilarious. they said where did he come from? >> you said, on our show. >> yes he has achlt couple of
times and he's on the 100 funniest list. coming up this half hour, hampering atempts to rescue after aftershocks. we look at the incredible power unleashed in just seconds. >> plus the maryland alternative that's becoming a big health concern. it's called spice. it's laced with deadly chemical concoctions and can be deadly. that's ahead. "usa today" says the islamic extremist group called isil is waging an unprecedent recruiting campaign. they say the slick marketing is a persistent threat in this country. one official said its use of social media and peer-to-peer communication are proving to be effective. "the new york times" says former president george w. bush is against lifting sanctions against iran. his remarks came this weekend. the ex-president was skeptical
about president obama's efforts at a nuclear deal with iran. he said the u.s. would lose leverage if the sanctions were released too soon. also "the new york times" says russian hackers accessed president obama's unclassified e-mails. hackers got into the archives only some of white house communications. it does not seem as if they got into his blackberry. corinthian colleges close doors. about 16,000 students will be leaving without certificates or degrees. they face millions in fines and fraud allegations. >> if you think you've been paying more for gas at the pump you're right. aaa says the nationwide average for a gallon is now 2 fnt$2.54. that's a spike of 50 cents since
january. crude oil is the cause for the increase. the big story is the earthquake in nepal. >> rescuers are still finding survivors. >> they pulled one out of a building this morning. he had been trapped for more than 48 hours. cbs news science contributor michio kaku joins us. he's a physics professor at the college of new york. good morning. >> good morning. >> after 80 years, 80 years of no earthquake why now? >> it turns out they can go back 100 years and we find that roughly 80 years there's a big one. the last one was 81 years ago and it killed 10,000 people but unfortunately people don't listen to scientists. >> why every 80 years? >> it turns out that india and china are colliding.
the buckling effect and the two are ramming into each other at a known rate at around two inches per year. that's the rate at which your fingernails grow. that's not very much. spread out over a thousand miles and propelled by a sub continent, we're talking about an enormous amount of energy that's regularly plowing into each other. >> what's your biggest concern of an earthquake following that size? >> we're going to see a crisis of proportions. we're going to talk millions without sanitation and medical care. look at cholera. in puerto rico cholera was a tremendous problem that killed scores of individuals. we're talking about homeless people without access to food shelter, sanitation. it's going to cause a health crisis of unparallel proportions. >> i thought you were going to sayaff shocks that we need to be worried about aftershocks. >> they could go on for not a
few hours or days but weeks. and so people don't want to go back into their houses because they're so flimsy. they collapse like a house of cards. >> we've seen the devastating consequences but what does it mean when we heard the word shallow quake? >> it turns out the actual center was released about ten hydrogen bombs worth which is rather shallow. if it was much deeper into the earth. the effect of it would have been minimal. because it was so close to the surface of the earth, people got the brunt of the shaking. the city of kathmandu shifted ten feet ten feet. an entire city was shifted by the force of this kwaek. >> avalanches kill people in mt. everest. can you have any warnings? >> sometimes people who are seasoned climate, they get overconfident. they think they know where the tipping point is. we physicists have studied
tipping points. it's extremely difficult to calculate at which time they take place. >> there was a warning even last week right? >> that's right. because of the fact it's easy to tip over a snow mass so there becomes an avalanche. in fact people get overconfident thinking that they know these things they're seasoned climbers, but these are unpredictable. >> all right. professor kaku we thank you for coming in today. three of the people killed on mt. everest are americans. we'll get the latest on the story and the desperate attempts to pull climbers off the mountain. that's ahead this morning. police in california face a lawsuit claiming they used excessive force on a drunk woman last year. she says new le released video of the incident says officers knocked her down to ground for no reason. ben tracy shows us the video that left the woman with broken bones. >> reporter: that's megan,
admittedly drunk waiting for a train after heavy drinking when bay area transit officers arrested her. >> i can't believe the videos. i was so bell lidge rant and foolish. >> reporter: she said despite what she did nothing justified what happened to her at the jail. in these reports the she said, quote, they suddenly turned toward me and began punviolently punching me with a closed first at my face. in his defense he said to protect myself from her attack i used an arm bar takedown. >> we don't see her punching them several times in the face. we don't see anything that
caused the imnet threat that caused this kind of force. what we see is without any of this is the officers held megan back and threw her to the ground. >> i had a gash above my left eye and had stitches there, four broken bones around my socket. stitches in my teeth. they knocked o it my tooth and chipped another one. >> reporter: sheehan has
filed a lawsuit claims they used excessive and unreasonable force. >> whether they thought she was so bilge rant and so drunk that she had it coming i don't know. >> i was already arrested. was already in custody. there was police all around and i don't know why they had to use that much force. >> reporter: a spokeswoman for b.a.r.t. said the agency would not kplenlt because of pending litigation. for "cbs this morning," ben tracy, los angeles. >> difficult to watch.

you are. what do you mean by that shanna? >> so many of my students come from traumatic backgrounds. i teach in a title 1 background. a lot of my students are refugees from all over the world. knowing what they come from makes me understand that i don't make promises easily or that i'm very aware of what they're coming from, so i try to honor my word. >> one of the things you're known for is teaching the dr. seuss book. tell us about that? >> one of the book is called the "sneetches." it's about how we separate people by anything. race, class, gender anything. and that story is one that anybody from kindergarten up through adult learners they can really relate to and it really gives that message in an
interesting way and like all of dr. seuss, it really stays with you and makes you think. >> what do you think of the common corps initiative? >> in texas we're not a common corps state but the standarded are kind of what we want for all of our kids which is critical thinking, high-level reading and writing and those skills as we know it, regardless of technology kids are going to need to be able to do that read and write at a high level. >> on wednesday you're going to the white house. the president will introduce you. >> yes. >> you're going pull him aside and say what? ? >> first of all i'm grateful for him to have the program there. that's amazing. teachers don't get thanking enough. >> i wanted to ask you about that. do they not get thanked enough and do we not appreciate our teachers? >> i think -- i mean it's an easy job to sort of take for
granted, i think, because so many teachers are in their classroom every day with their head down, you know taking care of business and so it's easy to kind of see them in the background. but if you think everybody has a teacher's story. andy rooney said that. he said most people only have five or six people but teachers have thousands that remember them. >> you say it's the toughest job you'll ever love. >> yes. >> and you love it because -- one sentence. >> you can help write the end of the story for every kid and that's the most exciting and the most privileging thing about doing this job. >> it was nice to see your students talking about you as you were introduced. congratulations. >> thank you. >> teacher of the year. >> thank you. >> going to white house. >> thank you for all that you do. >> thank you. here's a question. what is the one word she heard most when asked why they're together. here's one. it starts with a "c."

learn to be good at this. and i felt like -- >> good at what? >> good at love you know. that we could by learning about this stuff increase our chances to have a successful relationship. >> everyone at home is saying tell tell, tell. >> now, now, now. >> i thought what could she tell me in this book? it's wonderful. you go through all these different things. first you say, the one, the idea there could be one person your soulmate out there. you say -- >> i say let me tell you about one of my favorite kpuples. betty and edgar. i wasn't to knock on their door. they both in their 80s both about 3 feet they both had matching canes. they have a great rapport and i thought you guys are soulmates. i said what do you think about this idea of the one, the soulmate. betty wanted to slap me, she really did. she said if i had. been married to edgar for 65
years i would have been married to somebody else for 65 years. it was about commitment. >> i agree with that. >> you say the most important word about why they choose the person they do, you would think it's love chemistry, passion. >> humor. >> how moreumor trust. they had the same word again and again. the word was comfortable. many say it sounds so terrible. what they meant is they could be themselves their whole selves they could relax, breathe, felt like they had come home. >> the other thing is you found out they want someone for longevity to be nice and polite. >> nice and polite. >> bob and henry taught me that one. they met during world war ii. they had a tough relationship. they had been in the closet for so many years. finally got married after d.c. made saks seks marriages legal. i asked them what was the
success to their relationship. they said, oh, you have to be polite. you have to treat your partner with the same respect. say please say thank you. these are common things but simple things that anybody should do. >> you say love doesn't have to be a thunderbolt. i thought this was really good. you say never say never. quit uses words like never, only must and most marital disagreements do not have a solution and we should be aware of that. >> they don't and the point is you can learn to accept things about your partner that are not perfect and it's okay to fight. that was a big lesson that i learned in my reporting. as i said i gathered this. >> how you fight. >> it's important. you can do it with respect and constructively, but it's okay to fight. that's the sound of a train moving one therapist told me. >> you haven't mentioned this. what about sex? >> obviously it's hugely important. one thing that a sex therapist told me was when it's working,
it's not that big of a deal. when it's not working, that's when you have a problem. >> it's a really big deal. >> and you say people always have high expectations, that a lot of people are just too picky. what's the difference between being too picky and knowing what you want? >> i think when it's about superficial stuff, when it's about the resume things. when you're talking about the guy who's 45 and divorced with three kids and doesn't want to date anybody who's older than 28 and that's his cut-off. when a woman 5'2" needs somebody who's 6'4". she had to mary a jewish man and she ended upn indian man. she said it will never come in the package you're expecting. >> you did a good job. ellen mccarthy. and the book is called "real thing.
