homes and businesses within two miles. kay johnson is at the scene right now joining us by phone. kay, is the danger over? >> it is. that is the case. the evacuation has been lifted. air quality around the area has checked out. roads are also -- they were closed earlier, also being opened back up. this fire was really contained to the storage portion of the plant. i'm told by the fire chief that this could have bean whole lot worse because of the chemicals that they were dealing with here at this plant. >> i assume nobody has been hurt. do they know why it started? >> that is also under investigation. no one was hurt. the plant was not operating at the time. but, two firefighters did have to be treated for heat related illnesses. >> ok, thank you so much. that was kay johnson. a lot of us grew up with the food pyramid as a guide post.
7:11 pm
it's getting a radical makeover. let's find out from elizabeth cohen who joins us by phone. >> reporter: drew, there's been a lot of complaints about the food pyramid so now the federal government is coming up with a new icon, and we're told by the usda that it is a plate, like a dinner plate. we presume it will be divided into sections that will show you how much the different types of food you should be eating. >> what was wrong with the pyramid? >> reporter: it's not considered a great public health success. you don't look at it and think oh, i get it, now i know how to eat right. it was confusing and divided into a lot of intricate sections. and the stuff you weren't supposed to eat so much of was at the top of the pyramid. >> what is the next step? they are supposed to roll this out and who do they roll it out to? >> reporter: they roll it out to
7:12 pm
the american public later this week and replace the food pyramid in the same way the food pyramid replaced the four good groups that many of us grew up with. >> this thing has been around. i don't think i ever made a meal or food decision based on a food pyramid. what is this for? >> reporter: drew, the cynicism i hear in your voice, i think it is warranted. people are saying -- i've heard people say what does it matter what the federal government does. the epidemic of obesity is an icon, will the design make a difference. the hope is if you can look at this plate and if you can see oh, i'm supposed to be eating more fruits and vegetables. or if you can be reminded of it, it will help especially with school children opinion that's what they use the pyramid is with school children. my children have brought home food pyramids that they colored over the years. i don't know that they understood what that food
7:13 pm
pyramid was trying to tell them. hopefully it will be different with the plate. >> i think it has something to do with an egyptian burial tomb. anyway, elizabeth cohen, senior medical correspondent on this breaking news coming from the fda and the agriculture department. they will replace the food pyramid with a plate. thanks so much. even though this weekend kicks off the summer travel season in the mountain west record amount of snow means no camping, no hiking, no driving. this is yellow stone. word like epic and monster being used to describe the snow pack that's covering the mountains in almost every western state, the red on this map shows where the snow records are being broken. we're going to get to that. people trying to get to national parks or tetons, parts of yosemite are finding roadsing blocked by june. it's almost june. memorial day weekend kicking off summer vacation plans. parts of the country still covered in snow.
7:14 pm
i can't believe it, bonnie schneider. i flew over the mountains this week and the snow pack is incredible. >> it is. right now looking at our google earth i imposed the snow pack and it covers nine states right now. some of it very heavy. also added yellow stone national park and yosemite to show you those areas are covered with snow. particularly yellow stone, roads closed. and down at yosemite and sierra nevada, what's happening there's some snow melt and causing those waterfalls to rush at higher volume of water than they normally do. makes for a pretty picture but treacherous for campers. the temperatures this spring season have been colder than normal. we've seen the cold air plunge further south and linger longer than it would normally do this time the year. normally it's more mild. unfortunately with this set up we have a brand new storm system working its way across the
7:15 pm
mountain west. this is important to note for the holiday weekend for those traveling. look for five inches of snow in the higher elevations in the sierra nevada all the way down into california. you can see heavy snow. these advisories in place and go through tomorrow. however, as we head further off eastward, look what's happening. not only are we looking at wintry weather in terms of snowfall accumulation, five to nine inches in the mountains, three to six in the valley. in utah very strong within that will blow the snow around, northwest winds 15 to 20 miles per hour. gusts higher than that. that will make travel more treacherous and limit visibility. snow is great news for those looking for spring skiing, unfortunately getting there isn't going to be so easy. >> that's very true. thanks a lot. in libya, trauma workers fighting a war of the wounded. >> maybe 50 cases like this case. >> inside libya's war zone going

7:19 pm
lose. we want to warn you some of the pictures you're about to see are very graphic. >> reporter: the doctors and nurses at misrata's hospital have seen too many days like this. the ward is crowd with the wound. doctors struggling to piece back together bodies torn apart by bomb, bullets and rockets on the front lines. this doctor has just removed what was left of 25-year-old muhammed's left eye, pierced by shrapnel. >> how many operations have you done in the last three months. >> in the last three months maybe 50 cases like this case. >> reporter: he has multiple wounds. a fractured femur and severe facial injuries. part of his jaw is gone. the doctor says he was taking a break for lunch when a rocket landed nearby.
7:20 pm
>> he needs a plastic surgeon. >> reporter: do you have a plastic surgeon? >> lost skin, bone and muscles. >> reporter: do you have a plastic surgeon here? no. on this day this hospital received nine dead so far treated more than 40 wounded. from the front lines. and as bad as that might seem it is by no means this hospital's worst day. when the fighting in misrata was at its worse the wards were crammed, the wounded were treated in the hall weighs, even the parking lot. opposition fighter is breathing his last breaths. he has massive abdominal injuries from a mortar wound. the doctor who operated on him asked us to obscure his face because he has relatives in tripoli. >> i don't think he's going make it. unfortunately we've done everything for him. but this is -- his heart rate is about 25. actually zero now as you see it
7:21 pm
now. and medically in this place they don't want to stop the ventilator until he's completely flat lined and no heart rate. as long as there's a heart beating they will continue. but the chance for this gentleman to make it is almost zero. >> reporter: shortly afterwards the line goes flat. nurses detach his body from the life support equipment and cover his face. president obama arrived back at the white house tonight wrapping up a six day trip to europe. he ended in poland where memories of the old soviet union are still strong. here's our white house correspondent ed henry from warsaw. >> reporter: on this final stop in poland the u.s. president has really hit two big themes, the first trying to reassure the polish people that america will thereabout to defend it. there's a lot of mistrust here in poland about the intentions of russia, the former soviet

>> you can never bring caylee back for casey. but you can help end this nightmare. by sending her home. i'll ask you all individually and collectively to render a verdict of not guilty. that is casey anthony's -- that is casey anthony's defense attorney addressing jurors in the florida courtroom this week. casey anthony is accused of murdering her 2-year-old daughter caylee back in 2008. her mother and her ex-boyfriend testified today. the defense team has launch ad
7:27 pm
stunning defense strategy that includes allegations of incest in the family, fear and accidental drowning of a little girl. i got some reaction from sonny hostin contributor to "in session" on our sister network, trutv. >> i think, drew, over these past couple of years than case has been in the media the past couple of years, we all wondered how do you defend a case like this? given the fact that this young mother didn't report her little girl missing for 31 days. how do you defend that? well, now we know you defend it by saying she's the victim of incest. the victim of childhood sexual abuse, child abuse changes you and that is why she acted this way. this defense has really pointed the finger at george anthony, the case has become all about george anthony. he's been on the stand not once not twice but three times already and it's the first week. that has been just unbelievable for me.
7:28 pm
but let's face it, drew, this is a circumstantial case. there's not one witness that's going to testify to the fact that they saw casey anthony murder her child. not one witness is going to testify that they saw casey anthony put little caylee into a trunk of a car. and so interestingly enough while the defense is a stretch, the prosecution's story doesn't make a lot of sense either. so, first week, we've got at least probably seven to eight weeks left of this trial. we'll see what happens. >> it's really got a lot of twist and turns. we'll, of course, continue follow that. it's been wow from the start. let's talk about a case that we'll probably not going learn about a lot and that's this mega church bishop eddie long. a couple of guys come out and accuse him of wining and dining and bribing them for sex. now we learn that everything has gone away, everything has settled and we're all supposed
7:29 pm
to what, ignore that anything went on? >> isn't that interesting? i mean both sides issued statements this case has been resolved. what does that tell me? that tells me that perhaps part of the settlement deal was that no one could say anything. so will we learn what could have happened? what really happened? i don't think so. this case is resolved. it's done. we're not going hear anything else about it. >> sonny, i want to ask you one more case, really and this is amanda knox, the american college student convicted of murder over in italy, she is appealing her case. says she didn't do it. the italian legal system seems to be going through this appeal where a lot of holes in the original prosecution are appearing and italian lawmakers are coming to amanda knox's defense. saying perhaps we need to open an investigation on the prosecutor over there. where does this case stand now, and is it likely any kind of
7:30 pm
italian political involvement could spring amanda knox? >> i think so. i think it is extremely significant that policymakers are saying this doesn't smell right. there's something wrong. we need to investigate this. we know that she's, her trial is now on appeal and in italy that's almost like getting a trial and what we're hearing from italy is that there were experts that found that the evidence wasn't credible and so, you know, i wonder then, that part of it, the appeal finding that perhaps the evidence isn't credible and up have lawmakers also saying we don't like the way this investigation was done. that is going to certainly put the pressure on the appellate court, on the italian judicial system and we may see amanda knox coming home. >> sonny hostin joins us here on cnn every week at this time to discuss the legal issues. you can watch her weak days during "in session" on trutv.

7:38 pm
seven year itch." we're getting a look at never before seen photos before she was hollywood's sex pot. and how these tos were discovered. it's amazing. we get it from our entertainment reporter alan duke. tell us the story. >> reporter: it's one of those interesting mysteries of some photographs taken 60 years ago. i've broken a couple of stories in the past few months about these kind of photo finds and one begats another. i met with a person at a gallery. we taped the conversation. you'll hear his explanation of what happened. >> in 1980 i was a fledgling photographer but also collecting toys. so every thursday, friday, saturday i would go out and hit all the garage sales in my area in new jersey.
7:39 pm
i found an envelope with negatives. didn't know what they were but i realized they were old. they were two and a quarter by two and a quarter. you couldn't see what they were. but being a photographer i said what ethic, i think i paid $1, $2 for the package. i took it home. put them on the light board with a loop and -- >> needless to say these are marilyn monroe. that was my greatest garage sale discovery ever. >> these photos of this iconic face before it was an icon, let's bring david in. you brought these to him just this week. david, what did you think when you saw these? >> i know they were taken here in los angeles. and that we can really come across from the backgrounds that we see in the photos. hollywood hills, hollywood 1950s
7:40 pm
architecture. we know marilyn monroe was here working and photographed by bernard of hollywood. she was working here. this is somewhere around 1950. so, i've looked for early photographs, early shots, test shots, magazine shots, books and haven't been able to find anything yet. so the mystery we're just beginning to unravel. >> reporter: as we unravel it and perhaps somebody will see these on cnn and let's say my uncle earl took these pictures and they want to claim these pictures what's going to happen? >> that's kind much what we're trying to figure out. we don't -- there's way more questions than there are ans at this point. so, we don't know where this is going to lead. >> reporter: should be fun as we do research. and where these photos were taken, who took them, why they ended up at the garage sale. maybe we'll report back and let you know what we find out but
7:41 pm
certainly they are a refreshing different look at marilyn monroe just as she was on the start of her fame. >> i'm looking at the big screen over here, alan, because i'm looking more at the house than at her because if that house still exists certainly somebody is going to know it just from hey that's my house, my neighbor's house. odds are the house may still exist. >> reporter: we have some theories and a lot of calls are out. we'll find out whose house that was. that was 1950 just before asphalt jungle and "all about eve" when she was an unknown actress model. >> great story. a movement known as slut walk is going global. it's latest stopping point is australia. women are posting on facebook urging others to join them in these slut walks to demand the right wear what they want. why? it all started in canada last month in response to a police officer who said women should quote avoid dressing like sluts

in order not to be victimized. a march was planned in melbourne for today and then sidney and brisbane. coffee lovers in cuba are getting an unwelcomed jolt. a cup of joe is becoming harder and harder to find. we explain why from havana. >> reporter: cuban coffee. these days a little more bitter with less of a jolt. that's because beginning this month the coffee ration card is mixed with roasted peas a combination that cubans thought they left behind in 2005. the soaring cost of imports made the government change their mine. some like this guard welcomed the change. the first time i had coffee it was mixed with peas he says. i liked it and i'll keep on liking it. most cubans are not nearly as complacent.
7:43 pm
undeniably the mixed coffee is inferior quality. you don't have to be a scientist to know that. the quality just isn't the same for those who like to drink good pure coffee says another woman. in fact the new mixture is only 50% java. the rest roasted peas. president castro said the government wouldn't pay to subsidize cuban's demand for imported coffee. and while coffee is up 69% peas have only risen 30%. the new four ounce bag is just four pesos. but so many cubans have to mix it with expensive coffee from the supermarket. on its own it plugs up the coffee maker she says. or it just comes out tasteless. button lie way to know for sure is to try it four self. i'll cook up a mocha pot here. this is what most cubans use to
7:44 pm
make their coffee. i've been told i have to be careful and that's because peas expand lot faster and a lot more than coffee and these can explode. now for the real test. definitely very bitter. cafes and restaurants still serve the pure coffee but the kashian island once a net exporter of the beans now imports more than half of its annual consumption. shasta darlington, cnn, havana. in addition memorial day weekend we're remembering which dose. one young woman who became an widow at 21 built a sisterhood for those like hers. first another shout out from one of our soldiers overseas. this is sergeant fraser,
