trayvon martin is behind bars accused of trying to kill his girlfriend. a massive explosion outside of beirut. this is a combustible situation in every way. we are live. good morning to you. welcome to "early start." glad you're with us. i'm zoraida sambolin. >> i'm john berman. tuesday, november 19th, 5:00 a.m. in the east. the latest on the deadly tornadoes that ripped through the midwest. this morning, those who had their lives simply shattered are trying to pick up the pieces as the death toll rises. the stories of survival, i have to tell you, are stunning. indra petersons is in washington, illinois, this morning.
what is the situation there, this morning, indra? >> reporter: it really is amazing. after we took a look around yesterday, i mean, this is the staging area we showed you yesterday. we have a lot of wood frame houses in this residential community you can't recognize. yesterday i was able to drive around in the region in the
communities nearby. we were talking about two-story homes and some made of brick and leveled down to the ground. very easy tond how powerful the storm was. we know now it was an ef-4 tornado and winds packing 100 to 90 miles per hour. hundreds of thousands are still without power this morning after sunday's deadly tornado outbreak. illinois's governor declaring seven counties disaster areas in the wake of more than 70 reported twisters that tore across the midwest from missouri to wisconsin, killing at least eight people. >> we were hard-hit. we never, ever, in the history of illinois had so many tornadoes in the month of
november. >> reporter: from above, you can see where this tornado touched down in an open field and then pummeled this community in washington, illinois. at least half of the town of brookport was destroyed and three people died when a tornado ripped apart two mobile home parks. >> you just don't think that things like this will happen.
you just don't think, you snow. >> reporter: there are incredible stories of survival. chris lancaster kept filming while this tornado destroyed his house. packing winds as high as 190 miles an hour. >> i got hit by some debris or something and cut my eye in three places. >> reporter: this 78-year-old woman escaped the same tornado with a broken nose. >> sgri started flying. >> reporter: her home reduced to rubble. >> hot water heater. the copper pipes, they were all on me. >> reporter: yesterday we brought you the story of steve busher. he and his wife survived in their basement hallway. >> i was down and she was lord like here. >> reporter: when they surfaced their brick home was destroyed and his cars were thrown across the street. >> the only important thing i had in this house walked out of it with me. >> reporter: and what was that? >> my wife. >> reporter: thousands left combing through the piles of debris searching for whatever they can salvage.
>> the video of my wedding. >> reporter: there really is nothing as impactful when you take a look at the map of all the storm reports out there. we have seen those firlltered t 70 tornadoes. one statistic of all the tornado warnings in the state of illinois more than half of those reports all came in just on sunday. that gives you an idea of how impressive this system was, especially late in the season. we typically, of course, talk about tornadoes in the springtime and unfortunately it looked like this outbreak came late in november taking a lot of people by surprise. we will talk about what is going on today. we know that system that did produce all of the severe weather is offshore and exited out of the region so we are left with high pressure in the east coast today. with the mild conditions not as cool as we honch thought the high pressure in place and temperatures five degrees below and staying that way. the next story, again, will continue to be the system dumping heavy amounts of snow
and cascades in montana and washington and idaho and make its way across the country. we will you talking about heavy rain in the midwest and more rain by tomorrow, we will start seeing light rain and really lasting all the way through the weekend. heavier amounts of rain and even snow as we go through this weekend, so today really is that last day that they have to recover try and get what they can and salvage before the storm heads on in. >> we wish them a lot of luck with that. all of their belongings gone. indra petersons, nice to have you out there. thank you. new, folks, legal drama involving george zimmerman. the onetime neighborhood watch volunteer acquitted on charges of the death of trayvon martin has been arrested again this time for allegedly assaulting his girlfriend. he is in jail awaiting an appearance before a judge. this is not the first time he is accused of a crime in the months
a jury set him mere. here is more. >> what is going on? he's in my house breaking my [ bleep ] and i asked him to leave. he has his freaking gun and breaking all of my stuff right now. >> reporter: that is the 911 call authorities say george zimmerman's girlfriend made during a domestic dispute that allegedly turned violent inside the home they share. >> you just broke my glass table! you just bloke my glasses and put your gun in my friggin' face and told me to get the [ bleep ] out. now get out of here. >> reporter: she said she was pushed out of her house by zimmerman and he had guns inside. she said the fight started after she had asked the 30-year-old to leave but zimmerman tells a different story in his own 911 call. >> better word gone crazy? >> reporter: police were already at the house when zimmerman made the call. he told the operator he wanted
everyone to know the truth about what happened. >> just started smashing stuff and taking stuff that belonged to me and throwing it outside, throwing it out of her room and throwing it all over the house. she broke a glass table because she threw something on it. >> reporter: zimmerman went on to explain how the fight started saying the woman told him she was pregnant and wanted to raise their child without him. >> she got mad that i guess i told her that i would be willing to leave. >> okay. >> i guess she thought i was going to argue with her but she's pregnant. i'm not going to put her through that kind of stress. >> reporter: zimmerman denied using a weapon to threaten the woman and responding officers say they used the alleged victim's key to get in and pushed their way through furniture zimmerman had placed behind the door. they found zimmerman inside unarmed. his demeanor described as passive. >> clearly, he's had the opportunity to encounter situations similar to this in the past. offered no resistance and cooperated the entire time.
>> reporter: it's not the first final zimmerman has had a brush with the law since he was acquitted of murder in the shooting death of 17-year-old trayvon martin. in september, his estranged wife accused him of assault. police investigated and no charges were filed. >> florida suv. >> reporter: he has also been stopped twice for speeding. once in texas where he got a warning. a second time in florida where he was ticketed and fined $256. alina machado, cnn, atlanta. the justice department is reportedly close to a massive settlement with jpmorgan chase over its roll in the 2008 mortgage meltdown. that deal could be announced as soon as today and end the federal investigation into the selling of faulty mortgage bonds by the banks and its subsidiaries. the cost? $13 billion making it the largest settlement with the government ever. much more on that deal coming up in "money time" with christine romans. >> it is interesting the details. supreme court saying no, for

this is what they are writing. mary cheney is writing on her facebook page that her sister's position treats her family as second-class citizens and she cannot be lovingly tolerant towards them. >> she posted that overnight. >> that was in response to someone on facebook asking her questions about this. >> it was but also in response to her parents's statement in support of liz and not so indirectly there. caroline kennedy on the job as ambassador of japan. she rode a horse-drawn carriage to the imperial palace to meet the emperor. there it is. nice way to ride. this tradition dates back to 1854 when the u.s. and japan

inflected over the spillover the syria's civil war. it's not clear how they were deployed. they seem to have approached the front gate and perhaps a car was being used. you need a vehicle to get that much explosive near the embassey. some media reports the iranian ambassador killed in the blast and two civilians living nearby were also killed. the real fear when we see an circulati escalation of these tactics and the finger points to rebels in syria fighting next door. we see this escalating tactic does it bring lebanon from inside syria, does escalation

gone. even they can barely recognize it. >> this is my bedroom right here. i was sleeping on that side of the bed and when the sirens went off and the wife yelled at me, i jumped up, threw some clothing and put my running pants on and i went through the house. i actually went and checked here and the kids were over here so i went through this way was my kitchen. >> reporter: incredibly the plates in the kitchen cupboard remain completely intact. the rest of the kitchen destroyed. the home was lancaster's dream house. after you came out of the basement and saw what this tornado did to your house i were you incredulous that you survived? >> yes. i don't know how anybody made it through this. >> reporter: mandy dant want her husband to shoot the video but he was transfixed. >> that water tower just to the left of it is where i started seeing it coming across, coming across, coming across. >> reporter: it wasn't until
after the tornado hit that chris joined his family in the basement. the day after, they look for keepsakes. >> ha ha ha! the video of my wedding. >> reporter: they try to figure out what happens next. >> i don't know where to go. i don't know what to do. all i can do is just stand here and look at it. >> reporter: like so many families here, chris, mandy, their children, have lost almost everything. but right now, this family focus on something they haven't lost, each other. >> the good lord above was with me. all i can say is i got three angels up there. i got my father, my grandparents, my grandma and grandpa are looking down on me and my guardian angels for me today. they say you got to stay here and take care of your family. >> reporter: gary tuchman, cnn, washington, illinois. >> you can see them picking through the pieces of rubble and happening from missouri to wisconsin for people looking for anything they can find. the first step to putting lives back together again. indra petersons is in
washington, illinois, this morning. what is the latest there? >> reporter: i'm not sure what you guys asked here as i lost my ear piece. ef-4 tornado with winds as high as 190 miles per hour. we know it was 34 1/2 miles long and a half mile wide. so take a look at the kind of images we have now been seeing. very hard to each identify what is here and next to me. maybe a radiator, maybe a cooler and behind me we see downed power lines. this was a city had two-story houses or this residential neighborhood had two-story houses. we took a cruise around the neighborhood yesterday and it was devastating to see homes made of brick and completely leveled down to the ground and look next door and everything was intact. that is just the way the nature of these storms. i want to give you a quick update about the weather across the country what we are looking
is this dome of high pressure in place in the northeast. the system that produced all of the severe weather is now offshore and what we are looking at here now is just some cooler temperatures. only about 5 to 10 degrees below normal. not a big deal. it is what is out in the pacific northwest that is dumping snow. we are talking montana, wyoming, even idaho. that storm system will make its way across the country and talking about heavy amounts of snow in that region and upwards of about a foot and as it makes its way across the country we are talking about rain into the ohio valley by the end of the week and looking like in the midwest by the middle of the week. i point that out because that means right here we are going to be talking about rain as early as tomorrow. by thursday, heavy rain blasting even in through saturday and that rain, unfortunately, will flip over to snow and so it looks like today will be the last day the residents have to really take the time to clean pup. >> they don't need that rain and snow coming. indra petersons for us live in washington, illinois, thanks. toronto's mayor is promising
a war and calls it a coup. rob ford upset and angry and vowing revenge after the city council stripped him of most of his powers. this, of course, in light of the revelations that he smoked crack and bought illegal drugs while in office. the vote was overwhelming. it was 36-5. the council has no way to actually impeach ford so it can only take the step that it did, but ford compared what the council did to an act of international aggression. >> this, forklks, reminds me -- was watching with my brother -- when saddam attacked kuwait and president bush said, i warn you, i warn you, do not. well, folks, if you think americans politics is nasty, you guys have just attacked kuwait.
>> yeah, he said that. debate was ongoing. you see that there. ford ran into a fellow councilmember and knocking nearly to the ground but he caught her and apologized and in in an exclusive interview with cnn ford decided why he decided to come clean about his drug use. >> i just had enough. i was sick and tired of all of these allegations and all of this [ bleep ] excuse my words and all it is. sorry, kids, i shouldn't swear in front of the kids but after awhile i know what i'm doing is right. i'm saving the taxpayers money. i make mistakes. i smoke some crack and drink too much at time but what can i say? i'm human. >> then he lied about it, of course. his new tv show, that's right', his new tv show "ford nation" launched last night and spent the broadcast defending himself himself and he insists he will be re-elected in 2014. that will be some campaign.

first christmas or a kid's first birthday. you know? they don't know what to really do. i don't really have the words to describe how happy and how joyful you are and how grateful you are for everything. >> this is the family that the day he was born, got wrote on his head, hunt. i believe that in everything that i have in me. >> so seth is now living with the hunt family. he will soon be changing his name despite being 19 the hunt's are adopting him so he will officially become one of them for the rest of his life. >> that is so wonderful that family is altogether and they have each other. >> just incredible. just to have such big hearts and to do something like this. like she said, you know what he was a part of us when he was born and we didn't know it yet. >> beautiful story! 46 minutes after the hour. take a look what is coming up on "new day."

sign. i want to show you the numbers. as high as 16,030 and s&p reached 18,002 and could not hold that level there. what does dow 16,000 mean for you? here is one expert on that. >> it's a classic example of emotions overtaking rational decision making and thinking about the numbers and fundamentals as opposed to some number which is a great number and cool and interesting and round but has no relevance or shouldn't have relevance as far as how you make your decisions. >>ier your life doesn't change at 16,000 and your investment strategy shouldn't either and what the trading psychology experts like that guy say. here is why it does matter. it matters because this year, an amazing run to 16,000. the dow is up 22%. the nasdaq up 31%. the s&p 500 up 26%. check your allocations that you have your stock and in age and goals.
