7:01 am

blackface for halloween. a crash landing on a california freeway, the pilot walked away with no serious injuries. >> how are you feeling? >> all right. all that, a crazy frightening scene in italy. 20 people hurt when an escalator suddenly malfunctioned. the legalized marijuana use in canada, the country is running out of pot. >> a bunch of overly polite canadians apologizing to each other nonstop. i'm sorry, i'm out of weed. no, i'm sorry. i smoked your pot. >> the president talked to reporters in the oval office and he defended what he said about the caravan. >> they've intercepted all sorts of people. they've intercepted wonderful people from south america. and from other parts further south. >> further south than south america? oh, my god. did border patrol arrest terror penguins? this week's eye opener is
7:03 am
presented by toyota. let's go places. > welcome to cbs this morning. norah o'donnell is off. as you wake up in the west, we begin with breaking news on two former presidents. barack obama and bill clinton. the u.s. secret service says it intercepted an apparent explosive device sent to the obama home in washington earlier this morning. that follows an apparent pipe bomb that sources say was found near the clintons' home in chappaqua, norm of new york city, addressed to hillary clinton. >> now all this happened just one day after a pipe bomb was found near the new york home of democratic party megadonor george soros. paul aritas is with us from the white house, what do you know? >> an official tells cbs news they believe that the explosive device found sent to the clintons is similar to the one found at the home of george
7:04 am
soros, the pipe bomb found at the clintons' residence was discovered this morning. a second device was sent to the washington, d.c. home of former president barack obama. but at this point, officials cannot say if that one is linked to the one found at the clintons' home or the home of george soros. the secret service says none of these packages were actually delivered and that none of the targets were actually at risk. currently, this is being investigated as a criminal matter by the fbi. gayle? >> thank you paula. that investigation continues. but john, all former presidents have secret service protection, do they not? >> they do. they have them for life. and their families do as well. the secret service doesn't tell everybody about everybody in the families that are covered. but the reason of course that they do is we have the tragic history in america of presidents being attacked or assassinated. and because we have presidents living longer than they used to, there is a larger, longer period where you have ex-presidents out
7:05 am
in the world. and particularly given the partisan nature of things, people attach their animus towards a political party, towards the biggest figures in those parties, those are usually always the ex-president. >> it sounds like a good idea that all their mail is screened before it reaches the house, so it never came in contact with the family. of course we will continue to follow that story and bring you the latest as soon as we get it. the $1.5 billion megamillions jackpot has one winning ticket today. the winning numbers for the second biggest jackpot in u.s. history are 28, 70, 5, 62, 65, and the megaball number is 5. the single ticket with that combination was sold in south carolina. another 36 tickets across the country won $1 million second prize. so it is still worth checking your tickets this morning. but this is a cash payout for the big prize, it's a staggering $878 million. that is a whole lot of money. mark strasman is outside lottery
7:06 am
headquarters in columbia, south carolina, where we can all stop dreaming now. mark, good morning to you. >> good morning and what a wild night it was. one official grand prize winner, someone who is now about $1 billion wealthier than they were 24 hours ago. we do not know the name of the winner, and we may never know. south carolina lottery law allows its winners to remain anonymous. but whoever they are, they have three months to come to this state lottery office, walk up to those windows, with their ticket to claim the jackpot. >> tonight's megamillions jackpot is a record-breaking $1.6 billion. >> the lucky winner defied odds of 1 in 300 million. >> a winning ticket has been sold here in south carolina. >> i'm trying to figure out who won the megamillions jackpot. >> a winner. >> at that moment, millions across the country held on to a billion-dollar dream. >> read them and weep, people.
7:07 am
>> i've been ready just like in 1967. i'm 67 years old. it's about time. >> at one point on tuesday, california was selling 540 megamillions tickets a second. at bloomberg liquor in hawthorne, the line wrapped around the store. >> i play to win. i don't play for fun. >> there was only one jackpot ticket sold. here's where the rest of the megarevenue goes, 50% goes to the prize pool while the other 50% is allocated to state retailer commission, vendor fees and special causes. in south carolina lottery funds are used to support a variety of educational programs. 82% of funds go to college education and scholarships. the rest goes to programs for grades k-12. it's unclear exactly where in south carolina the ticket was bought. but it's a little bit of good news for a state still recovering from hurricane florence. south carolina's governor estimated that hurricane caused $1.2 billion in damage to the
7:08 am
state. that's still $300 million less than the value of the winning ticket. the owner of the store that sold the winning jackpot ticket will get a $50,000 prize. lottery officials may release the name of the store by noon today. for all of you who want a second crack at instant lottery wealth there's the powerball jackpot tonight. the jackpot stands at $620 million. >> there's still a shot. i faced reality this morning, ripped up my tickets, no good. oh well. one can always dream. thanks to mark and we're happy for the winner. well the remainsle hurricane willa are heading towards the u.s. this morning, lashing central mexico with heavy rains, willa made landfall on mexico's pacific coast yesterday as a category 3 hurricane. with top winds of 120 miles per hour. it quickly weakened into a tropical depression. flash flood watches are up in texas where the storm will dump more rain on saturated ground. forecasters say willa will move
7:09 am
across the deep south, then end up on the east coast as a potential nor'easter this weekend. >> oh boy. new jersey health officials are racing to contain a deadly virus outbreak that's killed seven children and sickened 11 others. the adenovirus is what it's called, spreading at a facility that cares for children with compromised immune systems. "cbs this morning" saturday co-host michelle miller is at the facility in haskell, new jersey with more. michelle, good morning. >> good morning. the state health department is on site to help stop the spread of this virus. because in communal facilities like this, where there are extremely vulnerable patients, this virus, the adenovirus, can move fast. the virus spread quickly at this center, infecting the most vulnerable. the deaths all happened last month in the part of the facility that provides long-term care for medically fragile children ranging from newborns
7:10 am
up to age 22. an inspection found minor hand-washing deficiencies at the location. the state health department says it's working closely with the facility on infection control issues. adenoviruses make up 5% to 10% of fevers in children. the infection spreads like a common cold in most patients recover after a brief illness. this strain has been associated with communal living. >> this isn't a strain that is around a lot. it will kind of come and go. >> dr. claudia hoyen is a pediatric infectious disease specialist. she said this outbreak is severe because the victims are high-risk. some patients at the facility are severely disabled, including those on ventilators. >> someone who is otherwise healthy, doing well, this strain probably isn't going to be a problem. it's just when you have that layer of being compromised from something. those are patients that are going to get into trouble. >> it is unclear what started
7:11 am
this outbreak. but state health department officials have told the wannaque center to stop admitting new patients. we haven't been able to reach anyone inside here. but we are told that the administrator on site is cooperating with state health department officials at this time. >> michelle miller, thank you. saudi arabia's defacto ruler could be about to make his first public comments on the murder of "washington post" contributor, jamal khashoggi. president trump, who accepted the original saudi denials of responsibility, now says khashoggi's killing involved quote the worst cover-up in history. secretary of state mike pompeo said the state department will revoke visas for 21 saudis, the u.s. has identified as being involved in the operation. holly williams is in istanbul where khashoggi was killed three weeks ago. holly, good morning. >> good morning. we're expecting to hear from
7:12 am
crown prince muhammed bin salman, at an vinlt conference in saudi arabia today. it will be his first speech since the killing of jamal khashoggi here at the saudi consulate in istanbul. in which some believe the prince was culpable. saudi arabia is scrambling to carry out damage control. extraordinary pictures in saudi media show the king and crown prince muhammed bin salman delivering their personal condolences to jamal khashoggi's grieving brother and son yesterday. we can only imagine their feelings about the meeting. since many believe the crown prince was somehow involved in khashoggi's killing. president trump stressed the importance that the u.s./saudi relationship yesterday. but he also sharply criticized the killing of khashoggi and the saudi deception that followed. >> the cover-up was horrible. the execution was horrible, but there should have never been an execution or a cover up.
7:13 am
it should have never happened. >> when muhammed bin salman made his first appearance at the investment conference yesterday, he was greeted with applause. the crown prince had portrayed hisself as a modernizer, and the conference is supposed to showcase his reforms. but at least two dozen business and political leaders have pulled out over protest of the slaying. there's still no official word on what the saudis did with khashoggi's body. in istanbul yesterday police searched a car abandoned in an underground parking lot and registered to the saudi consulate. but turkish media is reporting they found no significant evidence linking it to khashoggi. turkish president recep tayyip erdogan stressed again today that turkey will not allow a cover-up over jamal khashoggi's death. bianna? >> holly williams in istanbul, thank you. president trump continues to
7:14 am
insist the massive caravan of migrants from central america could include middle eastern terrorists. but in comments yesterday, he admitted there's no proof. >> this morning the crowd is in the mexican town of quexla, it's about the distance between new york city and orlando florida. adriana diaz is with the migrants learning what they hope to accomplish today. adriana, that's a long way to walk. when will they make it to the u.s. border? and what happens when they get there? >> well the border crossing they want to reach is near san diego, in tijuana, mexico. that's more than 2,000 miles away. and at the pace that they've been going, it's estimated they'll arrive in mid december. today they're expected to walk about 10 hours, a big group of them just passed. what they're doing is walking on the actual highway. they're walking mostly in the right lane as traffic passes alongside them. but keep in mind, there are
7:15 am
young men traveling alone who will be able to move faster than families. with small children. so the caravan is expected to splinter. >> adriana, what have you learned about who is organizing the caravan and how they decide when to start and when they stop? >> well, what we've learned from talking to locals and talking to caravan leadership is that it's being organized by organizations activist groups from throughout central america and mexico. one for example is pueblo sin borders, people without borders, there is leadership and those are the folks who generally make the decisions on what time to leave in the morning. they left around 5:00 a.m. this morning. and they're prompt. we came to try to, to try to find them and we saw them well on their way. while it was still dark out. so the decisions are made and they use loudspeakers to communicate with the crowds about the next day's plans.
7:16 am
>> adriana diaz, thank you very much. you're really putting everything in context for us. thank you very much. it has been more than a week since jayme closs vanish and her parents were found dead in their wisconsin home. but the county sheriff chris fitzgerald says he believes that jayme is still alive. about 2,000 volunteers turned out to search for clues, don daylor spoke to the sheriff about the investigation, he's outside the sheriff's department in wisconsin. >> so many peach drawn here are hoping for a good outcome. volunteers trudged through some rough terrain for hours. investigators are now assessing the items they found. and while it's too early to know whether any of those were connected to this case, the sheriff says he remains optimistic. the line of cars stretched for miles as peach arrived to search
7:17 am
for clues in the disappearance of 13-year-old jayme closs. it took 2,000 volunteers through thick brush and woods. wide-open land, and head-high corn fields. >> there's a little girl missing. and who wouldn't want the world looking for he had. >> most of the news is far away and kind of disconnected. but this is awfully close to our community. >> butch karcher and his wife sarah drove 50 miles to be part of the search. for them, it's personal. >> we have a teenaged daughter as well. and my wife just keeps saying if that was our daughter. so here we are. >> jayme hasn't been seen in more than a week. in october 15th, a mostly inaudible 911 call was made from her mother's cell phone. when police responded, they found james and denise closs dead in their home and their daughter was gone. >> the people in this community have no reason to have lost faith in what's going on here.
7:18 am
>> none, none at all. >> barron county sheriff chris fitzgerald told us his team has been working around the clock to find jayme. >> is there something that you have that you can't tell us, but that makes you feel like you're on the right avenue? >> no. if we had a suspect, i would put that out to the public. >> has the case gone cold? >> no, it hasn't gone cold, we're over 1400 tips, we continue to get tips in as we speak. >> it might take time, but you're optimistic? >> we will bring jayme home. >> the sheriff will hold a press briefing to talk about some of the items that may have been found. as of yesterday, none of them was connected to this disappearance. the funerals for james and denise closs, jayme's parents are, saturday. >> we're hoping the sheriff was right when he said jayme will come home. don, thank you. police, and ahead new details about hidel

trust me. trust me on this. i'm bianna golodryga with gayle king and john dickerson. norah is off this morning. explosives sent to the homes of former president obama and former president clinton. this comes one day after an apparent pipe bomb was found near the new york home of billionaire democratic party donor george soros. >> here in new york city, the time warner center was evacuated. cnn, based in that building, was in the middle of an interview when that alarm went off. >> means they were explosive devices and to have projectiles. >> excuse me that sounds like a fire alarm here. >> we're going to jump in. there's a fire alarm here. >> we're going to find out what the latest is here at cnn. we'll be right back. >> cnn resumed its programming from washington. paula reed is at the white house. what is the latest on this story? >> reporter: gayle, the latest
8:03 am
is that two explosive devices were found in mail, sent to former president barack obama and former secretary of state hillary clinton. the u.s. secret service said they discovered these devices during routine mail screenings and that the former first families were never at risk. cbs news has been told that the device at the clinton's home is similar to the one founld at the home of george soros, philan thropist and liberal donor. the clinton device was found this morning and the device to the obamas was found this morning. that's one a day this week. they're trying to investigate if there is any connection to what's going on at the time warner center. these terrorizing acts are despicable and anyone responsible will be held accountable to the fullest extent of the law, the white house statement says. a criminal investigation has been launched into these devices and who sent them. john?
8:04 am
>> paula reed at the white house. thank you, paula. jeff begas is also joining us. >> in this billionaire finance ear, that's a connection right there. investigators will look into what kind of similarities they're seeing with these devices. you can take these devices apart, albeit carefully, but you look at the components of the devices, see where they may have been purchased from and sometimes, like in the austin bombing case last march, there are unique components to these devices that immediately give investigators clue. fobs, this is the type of device that can only be purchased in this particular store, in this town. so they will look at that. also, is there any surveillance video in the area where the package addressed to george soros or intended for george
8:05 am
soros was delivered, could they find any vehicles in that area that maybe contain someone who dropped off that package? so those are some of the initial investigatory steps that the fbi, atf, secret service might take in this case. >> jeff, what's the first step in determining who is responsible for these devices? >> well, one thing you might do is look at what kind of e-mail correspondence, in the form of threats or mail correspondence these particular people may have received recently, perhaps there is some sort of connection there. or it could be something else that perhaps might not stand out immediately, but there are clues that some of these devices and the way the information is conveyed on the packaging, that could also give investigators clues. but also the fingerprints. whether the person who put -- or people who put these devices together left behind any sort of
8:06 am
fingerprints. that, obviously, will help investigators a great deal. >> jeff, who will be leading this investigation, the secret service or the fbi? the secret service, obviously, protecting the former presidents. the fbi, i'm assuming, would be the lead in the cnn evacuation. >> well, because this is sch a high-profile case, of course, you have local police responding first but the fbi and the secret service will lead this investigation and there is the prospect, obviously, that there are more suspicious devices out there. so far, there have been no injuries but, of course, federal investigators don't want anyone getting injured so they're going to put as many investigatory resources to this effort as possible, set up something akin to a task force that will help send out teams to investigate whatever leads they can find. >> and, of course, you, paula and all our team there in washington will be following this story, as we will here in new york. jeff, thank you. minutes ago, we learned where the winning ticket for the

8:23 am
opinion, would be slow. >> what does that mean in terms of -- curious about what john is asking, too. in terms of years, what do you mean by that? >> i think the thing that most of us worry about when we develop alzheimer's, which is more feared by americans, older americans than cancer, is that you are going to lose yourself. you're going to lose your soul. and i think that in a case like this, where someone has it much later in life, the likelihood is very high that she's not going to lose herself. she's not going to lose her soul and she's going to continue to know who she is and the people around her until the end of her days. >> i think if people are living longer, you see the concern that they will, in fact, maybe develop alzheimer's. two-thi two-thirds of alzheimer's patients are women. why is that? why does it affect women more? >> they're affected by alzheimer's for a multitude of reasons. first of all, women live longer so there are more women with alzheimer's. secondly, it seems as though women survive more with cerebral
8:24 am
vascular disease of the brain compared to men who die earlier with it and so that causes disease in the brain, which predisposes to alzheimer's disease. and then there are also the hormonal changes that women are now living much longer without the protective effects of estrogen and that can also increase risk. the other thing, too, women suffer more as caregivers from aumz hierms disease, as did justice sandra day o'connor in that she quit her job to take care of her husband. that's something that women tend to do, quit their jobs, give up their lives in order to take care of loved ones with dementia. >> if you are diagnosed, is there anything -- or what can one do to slow the progression? >> first of all, you have to realize there are many different types of alzheimer's disease. depending on the part of the brain that's affected and how old you are when you have it, and depending on the kind of brain that you bring to the illness, it can progress differently. so there are things you can do. you can exercise, eat healthy, stimulate the parts of the brain
