largest air rescue since hurricane katrina. we are looking at guests to give us context. retoird lieutenant general russell onaray. he led the task force in that aftermath and devastating hurricane struck the gulf coast. also authored, leadership is the new normal, live from baton rouge, louisiana. thank you very much for joining under the circumstances, sir. >> good morning, chris. >> first, let's give a little bit of positive context to what we are hearing out of colorado. the unaccounted number. people feel terrible within they hear that. are all those people gone? give us a little perspective on why they are unaccounted for. >> because nobody, no one has spoke to them. people who know where they live have no communications with them. one of the biggest challenges now is for the national guard and first responders to be able to communicate with people and the result of the array and flooding has taken out much of the communication. so it's people they don't know
3:07 am
because nobody has talked to them. >> that is the problem. >> but that number can go up or down. it doesn't mean they're all lost, there is cause for hope there, right, sir in. >> absolutely. are you talking about a very resill ynt community on the -- resilient community on the front range, being isolated from the heavy snows that can get in there. that's the good news. the other good news is we elected, the colorado national guard have some of the high altitude pilots we have in the nation. as a matter of fact, we sent people there to train before they go off to afghanistan to learn how to fly to in that terrain. they will get in there. get it done, have the capacity under general barnes to bring in even more national guard and federal helicopters as needed and when the weather breaks. >> one of the things you understand very well from katrina is the di the i with evacuations. there are a lot of evac orders going on in colorado right now. what makes that a complicated effort? >> well, no. 1, people who don't
3:08 am
know what's going on really none of them have lost communication and reenforce the fact that red cross talk about having you informed. >> that being said, the other part is you got some people evacuating, chris, you got other people that still node to be rescued and this weather has not broken sufficiently. so they can get in there. every home, every building that's been evacuated will have to be entered by a search and rescue team to be sure no one is in that home. so there is much work that can be done and this us now could get worse before it gets better, which is sustained rain and as that water flow outst mountains into the low ground, chris. >> a lot of people are saying, we know we are told to evacuate. i'm not leaving my property. there is something people can do to mark water that you know very well. what's the advice for how people c'mon tore whether or not to leave their own home and make the decision to get out. >> if you live near stream or a
3:09 am
creek or a river now, you want to make sure you understand, take you some sticks, put them on at the edge of the water, every 10 feet put a stick between you and your home. >> that way you can tell if that river is rising a first-hand you still have time to evacuate, you can get out. particularly at night, can you not tell if that river is rising or the creek is rising. >> that is a technique we use in the army. >> thank you very much for the per suspecttive. hopefully the weather abates so with get it under control so we don't live through anything like we lived down south before. thank you on "new day." >> mexico is getting battered on both side today. tropical storm manuel attacking from the west and hurricane ingrid from the east. both storms dumping lots of rain and fatal landslide with it. more than 20 people have been killed and thousands have been forced to leave their homes this morning. parts of the u.s. are also feeling the storm. let's go straight to ingrid

3:29 am
a definite time period to get syria to turn over the chemical weapons. here's the real catch. vladmir putin to be the honest broker in a region, syria. >> that will provoke skepticism. ronald reagan's rule applies again, trust by ver few. >> i want to get your take the president did an interview over the weekend. he kind of responded to his critics seeing they are judging him more on style rather than policy in terms of his approach to syria. down that is a creative spin or do you think he has a valid point? >> it's like olympic gymnastics, style points. at the end of the day, this is about outcomes. we focus a lot on process because that's how we judge the tic toc. locking in the rear view mirror, if you can get an outcome without violence, that would be judged as a diplomatic december. the atmosphere in capitol hill is so polarized.
3:30 am
there are folks who will criticize the president no matter what position he takes. all that gets caught up in the noise. see if these deadlines are real or this is a delay tactic by syria. >> friday is clearly a critical day to see what happens in terms of that. another big debate goingen in washington, maybe not so much in the forefront until today is the who will be the next fed chairman. larry somers taking his name out of contention. he really was obama's top choice, everyone says, behind the scenes, so what do you think is going on there? >> this is a classic washington whodunnit? he technically pulled his name. he wanted the job. obama wanted to give him the job. so who is cullpable in this case? it's the follow up of the democratic party which is increasingly resurgent. there were real doubts whether he could get larry somers' nomination through the senate. he was an ad advocate in the 1990s. today, kate, the 15th anniversary of the lehman
3:31 am
brother. a lot of folks on the far left blame larry somers. so he went from someone who soared through if senate with confirmation to being someone who obowl was looking at a tough fight with his base. it may not have been a fight he really wanted. >> what about the whole thought the president should be able to have the advisers he wants in his inner circle. >> wouldn't it be nice to think so. and a democratic marty increasingly saying, no, worry not going to rubber stamp things from obama. it's an interesting dynamic. we know the republican party is dealing with the far right. >> that i have it a bit on their own party, if they can figure as broadly as popular as obama, he can't get the picks like he wants. so power. so unaccountable. >> if fed chairmanship is so important right now. great to see you. >> thank you, kate. >> absolutely. we want to remind viewers, senator john mccain will be joining us live for more to talk about the crisis in syria at the

thampblts we were talking before the piece if fact that they can build the structure under the water to hopefully then prop it up. just think what the operation going in is. >> it's incredibly impressive. it's a marine conservatory site. it's like a very sensitive area. so if anything goes wrong at all, they are already worried about it. we have to take a half a step back. the famous dialogue between the captain and the coastguard where, you know, in this unbelievable situation the cap taken had left the ship with all these people. >> 3,200 people on board. >> the coastguard captain became yelping at him, vada aborto. he was yelping at him, get back on board. now we see how the turn will be. >> eight to ten months, hopefully, they'll have this thing taken care of. coming up on "new day," it was a high scoring affair. in the end, the older brother,

3:57 am

colorado. 4,500 square miles affected. that's in an area about the size of connecticut. more than 1,200 people unaccounted for. hundreds more waiting to be rescued with even more rain in the forecast. we are going to start asking, what lies ahead? we'll show what you the forecast shows. >> also, this secretary of state john kerry in france this morning troying to secure support for a deal he hammered out over the weekend with russia, obviously, in regards to syria's chemical weapons, but he's still warning syria what will happen if they don't follow the plan. we're going to talk to senator john mccain live in our studio coming up to get his take on where things stand. plus, paula deen is back. she made her first public apearn surrounding the use of the "n" word. she received a standing ovation. is she on the road to resell shun? and will the sponsors who dropped her take notice? we'll look no that. >> first, colorado officials say up to a to you people are weighing to be evacuated from

the deadly flooding there. lock at these amazing pictures of the rescue happening over the weekend. the national guard says it's the biggest helicopter rescue since hurricane katrina. more than 2,100 have been rescued. more than 17,000 others damaged, just huge numbers here. right now, more than 1,200 people still unaccounted for. >> that can mean a lot of different things, let's go to cnn's george houbl howl. good morning, george. >> chris, good morning. we are getting light rain. that kind of adds insult to injury. you lock back there, take a look at that. that's what people are waking up to here in colorado. after more rain on sunday sent rivers and streams rushing, cut off more communities and temporarily brought the rescue operation to a halt. at least four counties in colorado qualify for disaster relief and tail get that help today as fema moves into the
4:03 am
hardest hit areas. the flooding sowide spread, officials haven't begun to estimate the full extent of the damage. over the weekend, president obama declareing a major disaster in the state. while the state's governor, touring the devastation, his helicopter rescuing seven poem along the way. >> we're going to rebuild better than it was before. >> but mother nature isn't helping rescue efforts. cloud and heavy rain grounded air rescue missions sunday. more than a thousand people have yet to be evacuated and with roads and bridges crumbleing under the deluge, for some, rescue by air is the only way out. >> i think what we have going on here in the last 24 hours is the greatest number of americans rescued by helicopter since hurricane ka try fa. >> reporter: entire neighborhoods like this one in james town isolated. cities like aurora already plagued by flooding contending with hail that pummelled the
4:04 am
area over the weekend. officials in boulder county alone say tie will need an estimated $150 million to repair more than 100 miles of lost roadway and between 20 and 30 bridges. the scene in colorado is devastating but not hopeless. >> the question i had is how can we ever recover from this? and i know exactly inch by inch, mile by mile, community by community. >> back to a live picture here in longmont, colorado, of the river, look at it there. one resident told me what you see right there is running ten times as high as it would typically on any given day, so this river really tells the story of what people are dealing with out here. the good news, though, kate, we understand the rescue operation will resume today. obviously, now that the weather has passed through the area. >> thank goodness, a little silver lining.
4:05 am
they can get back to the work at hand. george, thank you so much. all this flooding left police and rescuers with a daunting task, trying to evacuate 1,200 people needing rescued. >> reporter: the desperation deepens to find the missing. this morning, rescue crews still struggling to reach communities cut off. the barriers, dangerously high rushing water, ripped up roads and mud filling up homes. heart wrenching images like these are disturbingly abundant. yet, we haven't seen the worst of the destruction. places like james town have been completely off limits. the terrain rugged, rocky, steep, accessible only by helicopter during brophy breaks in the rain. >> i was worried. >> reporter: her husband and son were trapped in that zone for two days on a 5th grade field trip when the floods hit. >> something just took a
4:06 am
waterfall, rubbed us out of the sky like niagara falls. put it there on the road. >> ten-year-old luka learned the camp was destroyed, while the camp, itself, was spared. he and his 77 classmates had no way home. teacher shannon burger says the adults hatched a plan. >> they figured we could hike out, which would have been three-and-a-half, four miles for our kids with some water crossings that we would niece harnesses and all of that. >> but their escape would not require harnesses. instead, the national guard came to the rescue. >> the helicopters, those were the best. >> four shinook helicopters and a blacktop arrived. >> we were shouting constantly. you two go there. >> everyone was cheering. lots of kids had signs. it was very fun. >> the valors know they are among the lucky ones. too many families have no home
4:07 am
to return to. anna cabrera, cnn, boulder, colorado. >> next hour we will talk live with the mayor of boulder, colorado, talk to him about what things are looking like for him this morning and what they need. much more aid head. let's turn overseas. in a few hours, we should know what u.n. weapons inspectors uncovered in syria. the question, what will it matter now that secretary of state john kerry and his russian counterpart have hammered out a deal to disarm the assad regime. our chief correspondent jim scuiotto is in paris right now. >> reporter: good morning, chris. i think what we saw this morning in paris was a show of unity between the americans, the british and the french backing this deal. that's important. the three permanent members of the u.n. security council in addition to russia and china, the three coming together, particularly france on board as well. because they were the lone supporter of military action
4:08 am
along with the u.s. before the dole came about. but secretary kerry saying theydant take this deal as face value. they can't take it by word alone. their focus in the building behind me is on working towards a u.n. security council resolution backing this deal but also one that has consequences if the syrian regime does not comply. in jerusalem, secretary of state kerry insisting that the deal he's worked out with the russians will be enforced and that president obama is still willing to back it up, if necessary, with military action. >> the threat of force is real. we cannot have hollow words in the conduct of international affairs. >> still, any use of force of syria's president assad fails to give up his chemical weapons will have to go before the u.n. security council, unless the u.s. chooses to act on its own. the dole calls for syria to account for all of its chemical weapons stock piles by the end
4:09 am
of this week. let u.n. inspectors in and destroy production facilities by november and remove or destroy everything by the middle of next year. a time frame some experts call unrealistic in the middle of a civil war. >> if that goal is ak450e6d, then it sound to me like we did something right. >> in an interview with abc news taped before the announcement, the president defends how he's handled the crisis, even if assad stays from force. he says he welcomes russia's president getting involved and he's not worried he's being played by putin. >> ronald reagan said, "trust but verify." >> reporter: there is every reason to believe syrian rebels carried out the chemical weapons attack. >> what i said is nobody around the world takes seriously the idea that the rebels perpetrated this attack. >> reporter: his contradiction, however, fired pack. >> this is a russian plan for russian interests and we should be very, very concerned. >> we are now relying on the
4:10 am
russians. we are following from behind, not loading from behind. >> reporter: secretary kerry and the british and the french believe they'll get more ammunition backing this deal with the release later this morning of that u.n. report on the chemical weapons attack last month. still, they're pursuing an aggressive time line that gives the syrian regime multiple opportunities to g game this out and delay. there are some doubts among u.s. officials. one senior u.s. official told me the dole depends on the syrians doing something they haven't done in a long time, quote, that is act in good faith. so still many questions remain, kate, chris, to how this will play out. >> all right. jim, thank you very much for the reporting. let bring in senator john mccain, a republican from arizona and a member of the armed services committee. thank you very much for joining us. appreciate it. the phrase, provocative weakness. what does that money to you? you use it in done text with this situation. what is provocative weakness?
4:11 am
>> well, what it means is that it is clear that we have bought into the idea that somehow vladmir putin and bashar al-assad are serious about the real dismantlement of these capital weapons when there is no penalty in the united nations security council for failure to comply. he made it very clear when this announcement was made and i have to carry the quote around, there is nothing in this agreement about the use of force and that means that the whole agreement to some degree is meaningless. and by the way, it's no credibility when the secretary of state says we will just keep saying if it doesn't work, he's the one that also said, any strike would be unbelievably small. unbelievably small. what message do you think that sends? and it should surprise no one that the attacks by bashar
4:12 am
al-assad on the free syrian army have dramatically increased. assistance from iran has dramatically increased and bashar al-assad said this is a great victory for the syrians. and i don't see how you can view it any other way. >> just to clear the record, when the idea of the deal came out. you said, i'll be open to it. it's better not to fight than fight. but at this point do you believe that they are just pursuing a dream here, that this is a waste of time, essentially? >> i think what they are pursuing is a laudable goal but there is no real way to achieve it, number one. no. 2 is that you now give put an major lace in this whole scenario and in the middle east. number two, they have now got a green light to continue and escalate their attacks on the free certain army. i promise you, i know for a fact the moral of the free syrian army is veried be right now.
4:13 am
they feel they've been abandoned. tell me where in this scenario bashar al-assad may go? in fact, it may insure he stays in power and there is 100,000 dead, chris. there is a million children who are refugees and we have stood by and watched this only in the last few days have they gotten some weapons and they aren't the right kind of weapons and don't think the iranians, the israelis, the north chrones and others take a lesson from this. the president said that we were going to, they crossed the red lean. i didn't think most people thought they were crossing that red lean meant that we would seek an agreement that's not enforceable. >> the president announced there is a few red line, that if eastern with their nukes, he would bomb tear nukes. what do you make of the strain behind that statement? >> i don't think the will is any credibility left in the middle east. i don't think, i think when you say you are going to do something, in case i draw a red
4:14 am
loin and don't react, then i don't think you have credibility. >> where do you go from here? i know you think the deal is a loser. what else do you do at this point? >> dramatically step up our assistance to the 3r50e syrian anymore. >> do you think congress should be involved? >> this is done by the intelligence committees and would be in agreement, look, until you reverse the momentum on the battlefield and bashar al-assad thinks he is going to lose is the only way you get a negotiated dependentture of bashar al-assad. as long as he thinks he is winning. then he will continue, particularly with the assistance he is getting from the russians and the iranians. as we speak today, there will be a plane load of arms, conventional weapons landing from moscow to be used to kill syrians at the same time, we are dismantling the chemical weapons stocks. that's crazy. >> if this does move forward. >> yes. >> do you think u.s. troops should be involved, on the ground? >> never, never, never.
4:15 am
it would be harmful. but there is plenty of things we could do to assist and give them the kind of help. a year ago, they were the momentum was on their side and then the iranians came all in. the russians came all in, hezbollah, 5,000 hezbollah came from lebanon to fight on his side and we sat by and watched and that's, it's a shameful chapter in our view. >> you think that your view is suffering from politics here domestically. do you believe if there were president romney that members of your party would have the same resistance that they are showing right now. >> i think there is some, chris, in all honesty, just pause they dislike president obama. i think the president with the american people say two things, one, i want to strike, two, i want to pause. that's a very confused message so give the american people. i think if he had acted, he had the authority to do so. ronald reagan invaded grenada
4:16 am
one night. bill clinton did carry out strikes. every president has. but once he decided to go to the congress, it's the first time in history a president has announced he will act militarily then turned around and said he had to go to congress to get their permission. >> we were just talking about this because i wonder if syria aside, it does seem the urgency has been taken out of the situation, is what we are seeing politically a window into just this circus that's going to happen here domestically with the spending bills and the politics will? if you are playing politics on something on whether or not to help a humanitarian situation, what happens when it comes to dollars and cents in the budget? >> i think we're in for some serious problems here. and i think that republicans ought to understand, if we hit down the government, congress explains, radio italy or wrongly, congress gets blamed. we seen the movie before. some weren't around at the time i was. >> what do you think the president in his interview said
4:17 am
he is not going to be negotiating around the debt krolling. where are you on that? >> i think that the president has the ability to say what he wants to say. but there is going to be to have some negotiations. there is going to be a willingness to negotiate because we all know that we're not going to cut off social security checks. we're not going to cut off the salary and payment to the men and women who are fighting in afghanistan. it's not going to happen and for us to say that you got to repeal obamacare in order to get that done as charles crowdhammer said, that's a suicide note. >> that itself the best depiction i have have. i hope my colleagues in the house who believe we need to shut down the government will understand that that's not what the american -- they hate government. they don't want it to stop functioning. >> that's a good point. your take finally on some of the news about the fed chairmanship, larry somers taking his name out of contention, good move, bad
4:18 am
emph? what do you make of it? >> that's one thing i stayed out of. i admire larry somers. he has served honorably. he has picked up enemies on the way. this was more inside the democratic party issue than it was to do with republicans. >> we talk about these nominations once in a while. i think you are in the camp the president should have his advisers he want itself around him. >> elections have consequences as i found out to my sorrow. >> are you worried with all of this you know, you have been incredibly. you have your positions, your strength about military action being a game changer in syria. are you worried about the political costs to you of staking out non-partisan positions? you have been doing it more and more. you have been attacking me all along the way, i want to point that out. >> well deserved. >> thank you. >> you turned my whole family. do you feel. why are you doing this? you are worried about your own political future. >> the one thing i paid a visit to syria and i met these brave
4:19 am
people and i saw the carnage. i talked to a group of young women in a refugee camp that were gang raped. >> that is bashar al-assads indoctrination. i saw these orphans. i saw a young woman who was a teacher said senator mccain, you see these children all running around here, there's thousands of them. they're going to take revenge on the people who they believe abandoned them and refused to help them. you know, i will admit to emotional attachment to the tragedy that continues to go on an us watching it go by and if that's a fault, then i plead guilty. >> senator, it's great to have you here in the studio. >> thanks for having me on. >> thank you so much. >> good luck with the fights abroad and at home. senator mccain. all right. a lot of news here as well. let's go right to the other headlines. >> all right. house republicans will relows a report going after the obama administration for its handling on last year's attack in

necessary legal actions to find out that this family deserves. this was an unwarranted, inhumane shooting. we are seeking answers. >> mr. chris chestnut, thank you for dpoin joining us. i understand the reluctance to discuss an ongoing investigation. let me ask you this, the big question will come down to was there any kind of justification here? what i want to get a sense from the family is, was there anything going on with jonathan's life, it was 2:30 in the morning, was there anything going on medically, any kind of situation he was dealing with personally, could all in anyway explain any behavior on his part. i know there is no reason for it. just to understand the background, was there anything going on with your son that means something in this situation? >> no, it was not. jonathan was very happy. i had just spoke with jonathan.
4:30 am
he calls me every morning. and we talk for about an hour before he goes to work. jonathan worked two jobs. he was a very happy, outgoing person. we laughed and we talked and we talked about him coming home and the things he was going to get for his sister and his brothers and his sisters and brothers by being married in the family. he was very, very happy. he called me before he went for the his second job and he said, mama, i may go off tonight. he was very happy. >> so if there were no medical emotional issues going on with your son. this comes down to just a wrongful shooting investigation, are you satisfied with how the police seem to be handling it so far? >> certainly, we applaud the arrests and the police chief's decision election to arrest the officer. but there are a lot of unanswered questions. why was this officer even with a barge and having a gun? what are the policies and

procedures? what is this training that would allow an officer to react so irrationally, so inhumanely. there are a lot of questions to be answered. what about the one who called the police? why would she assume because someone is knocking on her door at 2:30 in the morning, he is going to rob her. since when does a robber ask, can i take your belongings? >> so this was a senseless death. and we need answers. >> you do make the point, it is unusual in a positive way there have been charges. we have to see what happened with them. it does seem the police department is moving forward with their investigation aggressively. let me close with this, though, if i can go back to you, georgia and willie, what do you want people to know about your brother and your son? they're learning about him only from the sessions that cost him his life, what do you want people to know about who he was? georgia, please start with you, willie, if you want to finish. >> jonathan was a very happy
4:32 am
outgoing person. he is a good kid. jonathan was so loving. we would sit there and try to think of something bad about him. there was nothing we can think of. i can't think of a bad thing he had done as a child no more than any time he get sick, he want to speak with me. because he loved being near his mother. >> as a brother, jonathan has been, you know, as a brother to me and to so many others around the community, the community and around the state of florida that have came in contact with jonathan, he had always been a great person, always somebody who was willing to help no matter what the situation was. always cared about somebody, no matter if he did know, always willing to give, always willing to know. was always happy no matter how upset. it's hard to make him upset. and any situation, but jonathan was the one, the greatest man i ever came in contact where even
4:33 am
though that's my brother, that's somebody i dearly love. i know everybody else who came in contact with him through high school, elementary, people who never met him heard a word about him never heard nothing negative or bad about him. he was always a great person, always have a smile on his face and always lover making people happy. so that's something real small to sum it up. >> we know he was a great athlete. >> an athlete, a gymnast, a football player, an academic, a chemistry major. this is an all american young man who swoived a horrific accident, he is crying for help and is showered with bullets. >> well, mr. chestnut, we know the entire society needs to hear about these situations. more specifically, to you, georgia and willie, your entire family, our thoughts and prayers are with you. i know this is terrible for you for the matter what the outcome of the investigation and we wish you well. thank you for coming on this morning and thank you. >> thank you. >> and all the best to you going forward. >> thank you for having us.

full extent of the damage. over the weekend, president obama declaring a major disaster in the state, while the state's governor touring the devastation, his helicopter rescuining seven people along t way. >> we'll rebuild better than it was before. >> reporter: but mother nature isn't helping rescue efforts. clouds and heavy rain grounded air rescue missions sunday, more than 1,000 people have yet to be evacuated. and with roads and bridges crumbling under the deluge, for some, rescue by air is the only way out. >> i think what we have going on here in the last 24 hours is the greatest number of americans rescued by helicopter since hurricane katrina. >> reporter: entire neighborhoods like this one in jamestown isolated. cities like aurora already plagued by flooding contending with hail that pummeled the area over the weekend. officials in boulder county alone say they will need an
5:05 am
estimated $150 million to repair more than 100 miles of lost roadway and between 20 and 30 bridges. the scene in colorado is devastating, but not hopeless. >> the question i had is, how can we ever recover from this? i knowexactly. inch by inch, mile by mile, community by community. >> reporter: a live picture here in longmont, colorado, this river is ripping and this is what caused a lot of the damage. we know from officials at least 19,000 homes are damaged or destroyed from this storm. at least 1,000 people waiting to be rescued and the good news, the rescue operation is expected to resume today. >> george, thank you very much for the reporting. of course, this story is not just about numbers and forecasts. it's about people fighting to survive. one colorado boy says it was
5:06 am
like someone dropped niagara falls on them. the floods have turned families into castaways and for those facing the rising waters the sight of a helicopter is like the answer to a prayer. cnn's ana cabrera has that story. >> reporter: the desperation deepens to find the missing. this morning, rescue crews struggling to reach communities cut off. the bare yes, dangerously high rushing water, ripped up roads and mud filling up homes. heart-wrenching images like these are disturbingly abundant, yet we haven't seen the worst of the destruction, places like jamestown have been completely off limits. thor it rain, rugged, rocky and steep, accessible by helicopter during brief breaks in the rain. >> i was worried. >> reporter: tiffany and her husband were trapped for two days when the floods hit. >> something took a waterfall, grabbed it out of the sky like
5:07 am
niagara falls, just put it there on the road. >> reporter: 10-year-old luka learned the road to camp was destroyed. while the camp itself was spared, he and his 77 classmates had no way home. teacher shan nan bergert said the adults hatched a plan. >> they figured we could hike out which would have been three and a half, four miles for our kids, with some water crossings that we would need harnesses and all of that. >> reporter: but their escape would not require harnesses. instead the national guard came to the rescue. >> the helicopters, those were the best. >> reporter: four chinoook helicopters and a blackhawk arrived saturday morning. >> so we're shouting constantly, you two go there, you two go there. >> everyone was cheering when they were pulling off and lots had signs. >> reporter: they know they are among the lucky ones. too many families have no home to return to.
5:08 am
ana cabrera, cnn, boulder, colorado. >> thank you so much, ana. authorities are updating the list of people unaccounted for, including 300 people in boulder county. joining me to talk about the devastation they're facing the mayor of boulder, colorado, matthew applebaum. you have much more to do than to try to speak to us but thank you for taking the time because it's important to get the message out. how are things looking from the ground today? >> the city of boulder social has fared better than some of our surrounding communities but we still had a rather extraordinary flood event, one we hadn't really expected because of the immense amount of rain and the widespread nature of it, where all of our creekways, we have 15 or so tributary creeks, the boulder creek coming to town and all of them flooded at once. things look better. the sun is going to come out
5:09 am
today. it will be normal colorado sunny for the rest of the week, we believe, but there is a huge amount of cleanup and a huge amount of repair and a huge amount of destruction around town that people will be dealing with for a very long time. >> put this in perspective. what has this been like for residents in your town and what is this going to look like going forward? have you yet, do you think, turned the corner and gotten a handle on the devastation you're facing yet? >> probably not entirely. again, we don't have massive road destruction that you see in the county, don't have people who are unaccounted for. we're an urban area, the access is much better, but i think after watching people the last few days helping each other out, the remarkable community spirit that we have, i think there's going to be a lot of shock and disbelief the amount of destruction, the damage to people's houses, the damage to
5:10 am
neighborhoods, the damage to roads, the damage to our much beloved open space. it's pretty significant, and as i said, it's extraordinarily widespread. i think when the sun does come out, we'll get a better idea of the extent of that damage both from the city perspective and also the very unfortunate personal stories. >> the numbers when you look at it are really astounding just how many people are still missing, kind of in the county and other areas as well as the number of people that have had to be air lifted out that have been completely stranded. why do you think these numbers are so high? were people not prepared for what was coming their way? >> i think we did a very good job at preparation and watching between the city and county and federal agencies has been remarkable but up in the county and this is not within the city limits but up in the county
5:11 am
there are thousands of properties in mountainous terrain with limited access in the best of times, and while we've always known our creeks are susceptible to flooding, we expect the more traditional if i could use that term a 100-year flood event, a flash flood storm or damaging flooding along one drainageway but other accesses remain open but nobody expected, including the meteorologists, was an event that would last for many days and would be completely spread out north to south the entire county and much of the front range, which meant that all accesses were cut off. >> well, there's clearly going to be a lot of need as people get a handle on what they're dealing with and when rebuilding begins. first and foremost your community needs for the rain to stop and the sun to come out and these search and rescue operations to continue.
5:12 am
mayor applebaum, the mayor of boulder, colorado, thank you for your time this morning. >> thank you. >> of course. chris? secretary of state john kerry is in france trying to build support for a plan to get chemical weapons out of syria. deal between the u.s. and russia calls for a full the canning of their weapons for a week and full removal by late next year. is that realistic? is it even possible? cnn chief national security correspondent jim sciutto is traveling with the secretary of state and filed this report from paris. >> reporter: thank you, chris and good morning. what we saw this morning was a show of unity, a show of force by secretarier isry with the british and french foreign ministers backing this syria deal on chemical weapons but secretary kerry saying they can't take this at face value, they can't take it by words alone their focus is getting a forceful resolution in the u.n. that brings consequences for the
5:13 am
syrian regime if they don't comply. in jerusalem secretary of state kerry insisting that the deal he's worked out with the russians will be enforced, president obama is still willing to back it up if necessary with military action. >> the threat of force is real. we cannot have hollow words in the conduct of international affairs. >> reporter: still, any use of force of syria's president assad fails to gave up his chemical weapon also have to go before the u.n. security council unless the u.s. chooses to act on its own. this calls for syria to account for all of its chemical weapons stockpiles by the end of next week, and remove or destroy everything by the middle of next year, a time frame some experts call unrealistic, in the middle of a civil war. >> if that goal is achieved, then it sounds to me like we did
5:14 am
something right. >> reporter: in an interview with abc news taped before the announcement the president defends how he's handled the crisis even if assad stays in power, says he withal comes russia's president getting involved, that he's not worried he's being play plagued but putin. >> trust but verify. >> reporter: he rejects in the "new york times" op-ed that there's every reason to believe syrian rebels car rid out the attack. >> i said nobody around the world takes seriously that the rebels perpetrated this attack. >> reporter: creditics fired ba. >> this is a russian plan for russian interests. >> we're relying on the russians, following from behind, not leading from behind. >> reporter: secretary kerry and his british and french counterparts believe that this u.n. report coming out later this morning will give them more ammunition, more backing for this deal, but still they're working on a very ambitious time line going forward which gives the syrian regime multiple
5:15 am
opportunities to delay and game the system and there's still skepticism within the administration. one u.s. official told me that this deal relies on the sear yayab syrians doing something they haven't for a long time, and that is acting in good faith. >> jim sciutto, thank you for that. as secretary kerry makes his case to u.s. allies abroad the deal is taking a little heat at home. senator john mccain is not happy about it. he says the agreement gives russia the upper hand and doesn't properly provide for the use of force if syria fails to comply. here's what mccain had to say earlier on "new day." >> if iran with their nukes, what would you make of the strength behind the statement? >> i don't think there's any credibility left in the middle east. i don't think that -- i think when you say you're going to do something, draw a red line and don't react, then i don't think
5:16 am
you have credibility. >> where do you go from here? i know you think the deal say loser. what else do you do in. >> i would dramatically step up our assistance to the free syrian army. >> do you think congress should be involved? you know the vote would not pass. >> this is done by the intelligence committee. unless you reverse the momentum on the battlefield and bashar assad thinks he's going to lose is the only way you get a negotiated departure. the president went to the american people saying one, i want to strike, two, i want to pause. that's a confused message to give the american people when he spoke to the american people. i think if he had acted, he had the authority to do so, ronald reagan invaded grenada one night, bill clinton carried out strikes. every president has. once he decided to go to the congress, it's the first time in history the president announced he's going to act militarily and
5:17 am
then turned around and said that he had to go to congress to get their permission. >> that was senator john mccain. something else we want to talk to but your 401(k)s and budget strategy may have been influenced this morning. larry summers has withdrawn his name from consideration to be the next head of the federal reserve. two big money issue, summers' withdrawal and the five-year anniversary of the financial collapse. are we better off today? we bring in assistant managing editor of "time," rana, and christine romans. >> good morning. >> good morning to you. summers what, does it mean? >> it means larry summers will not be the next federal reserve chairman and janet yellin will be. he said this is looking too acrimonious, me getting confirmed will be too tough and it withdraws from the work of
5:18 am

. welcome back to "new day." off the coast of italy this morning, take a look at these
5:47 am
live pictures. engineers attempting to raise the "costa concordia," the cruise ship that ran aground well over a year ago killing 32 people when that happened and even if crews are able to right the ship over the next couple of days they'll still face the daunting task of removing it. erin mclaughlin has the latest. >> reporter: lifting a ship the size of at "costa concordia" from its side has never been tried before. more than 100,000 tons of water-logged wreckage now slowly being pulled upright. engineers and welders monitored the vessel's every move. there is, after all, a very real risk the ship could break apart. >> she's a massive ship, a massive challenge, but when you add her to the slopes of gilia island and the two reefs she's balanced on it takes the project to a whole different scale. >> reporter: it's been 20 minutes since the costa
5:48 am
concardia ran aground, killing 32 of the people on board. the massive operation to remove the wreckage began with steel platforms built below the water. cables helping to hoist the ship upright, and a series of enormous floatation devices attached to the ship's sides are designed to eventually help the cruiseliner float away to aer inby port. underwater debris from the tragedy still floats along the italian seabed an ominous reminder of the toxic stew still inside the vessel and environmental disaster if the salvage operation is not successful. removal of the ship is costing nearly $800 million and the people of gilo are praying the deteriorating "costa concordia" will soon be floating again. erin mclaughlin, cnn, london. >> as erin said their toxic
5:49 am
stew, it's an virn mentally sensitive area. barbara nadeau standing by, what is the latest? >> reporter: they say everything is going to plan, they're cautiously optimistic this is going to work. they originally told us it would take 12 hours and the process is more of a rotation. they're pulling this ship up from underneath with the giant pulleys with cables on them and at the same time they're pulling it from the top so it's more of a rotation than anything. at a certain point about now we were saying four or five hours into the operation, we're into the fifth hour, gravity was supposed to, you know, take over. they seem to be by that calculation maybe a little bit behind schedule because it doesn't look like the point where gravity would take over. by all means they have control for ohm a bit of time. after that the ship is too heavy and that's when the flotation boxes on the outside of the ship
5:50 am
will take over. those will start to fill with water and the only way they can control those is to pump compressed air in so they'll be able to control each one individualry, if some of the ship breaks apart or some seems vulnerable they'll be able to lift some parts and move parts to slow down the force of gravity and eventually end up on a bed of a big platform with what the salvage masters call mattresses. they'll fix the broken side in the spring and hopefully float it away by next summer. chris? >> a lot of risk there but they need to try to do something before it breaks apart. barbie, thank you for the reporting. we look forward to seeing what happens. all right, how about some good stuff? here's today's episode. it was 87-year-old alan monroe's second love that helped him get through the loss of his first, the first his wife norma who recently lost her battle with
