10:02 am
to date the scope of devastation is now emerging, the images and the stories just heartbreaking, a family clinging to a piece of plywood as the storm ravaged their home. a man tossed around in his work van as the factory next to him gets leveled. kentucky grandparents married for over 50 years holding each other in their terrifying final moments. search and recovery efforts have now entered the third day in parts of the south and u.s. at least is feared dead after that tornado supercell hit friday night and tore a path 200 miles long in a matter of hours. local authorities think that this was the biggest tornado track in u.s. history and kentucky got the worst of it. governor end beshear got emotional providing an update. >> our best count for confirmed deaths, the most accurate count
10:03 am
that we have as of this morning are 64 kentuckians. just a few more facts about those we've lost. 18 are still unidentified. of the ones that we know, the age -- the age range is 5 months to 86 years and six are younger than 18. >> 000s of homes and businesses destroyed. entire towns in rups, but the devastation has not broken the spirit and resolve of the people in the storm zone. communities are coming together giving blood, collecting donations. more than $4 million in kentucky alone and working around the clock to start the long road to tennessee. i want to bring in my colleague john berman and one of the
10:04 am
hardest hit areas and what we can see from the photos and video. i can't imagine what it's like there. >> aprila, you're exactly right. so many stories of loss and so many stories of tragedy but as we're here this afternoon i have to tell you what strikes me is the amount of hope and the determination. look, it's a construction zone right now. mayfield has turned into a rebuilding zone so almost any direction i look right now there is a backhoe. there's a bobcat and people are shovels and chainsaws just picking stuff up and moving it. trying to get the walls back up. oh, look at that convoy of trucks that you can see there in the pictures. there's so much material coming in to help repair and rebuild and then there are truckloads of stuff being carted out as people dig through this rubble. it's really extraordinary to see vrks and i have to tell you
10:05 am
having covered my favor this expapsive and comprehensive to. think there's so much loss and so much rubble and so many splintered pieces of wood and charred metal. >> you know, it's really interesting the way you phrased that because i was fight exact same thing. you look around and the scale of the devastation is so enormous you don't know where to begin, but one of the things sheer that people aren't waiting to figure out where to begin. they are just beginning. they are just diving in. they are going in and they are picking up a piece of rubble. they are picking up a cinder block and loading it in the back of the truck and getting out. so many people here have their own tractors or machine in their house and each one of them is out and they are beginning the process and there's so much
10:06 am
right now. >> danielle car is the owner of carr's steak house. restaurant cop industry but the workers were able to evacuate before the twittery he had. >> maybe 100 yard 2, hundred yards. >> so behind this pile here. >> friday, the tornado hits late eveninging? >> what time do you go? >> 830, 8:45, the news was on and weather. i -- that gave me 80 minutes to call and said you guys need to out. >> everybody got out. that's what we can still hold to. >> the restaurant, what's the status of the restaurant right now? >> just likes this belting here.
10:07 am
>> the kemess varntor and our spire and that's what we're focussed on right now mepg. >> families are at the barns in the xwhaunt for over 70 years. you've been feeding people here for beck aids and dem and deck as i what's it been like seeing this? got to miss everything that's coming down. got to be hard to rebuild, but it's hard to see, but what's good to see is you can seat people coming together just on a whim and helping each other rebuild and helping eachary pour back out. what's your plan for the statehouse? >> we're going to worry about our community and we'll spend every moment of every day that we're awake and trying to help people that they are suffering. there's over 1,000 people that don't have home, thousand of people without power and heat,
10:08 am
and that's what we're going to focus on in the immediate future. we're going to start feeding the community, the first responders, the people that are displaced. we're going do everything we can. >> find a kitchen and start cooking the minute that you can. >> that's right, that's right. >> whether or not it's one of your buildings or not. just, you were telling me that the day after, so friday it hits and on saturday there were people in there with machines moving stuff? >> yeah. were in there yesterday moving the heavy stuff. we got into the rubble ourself just trying to find the key things that we needed. a lot of people. >> i mean, farmers, carp it's one of my friends was going into the rubble just trying to pull people out. it's really great to see our community pull not this very dark time. >> we've heard from the president and federal and state and local officials all saying let us know what you need. what do you need, do you think?
10:09 am
>> i've talked to -- just -- i have 30 employees and i've talked to them. a number of them lost their homes, lost their vehicles and lost their christmas, you know, all kinds of stuff. they don't have shirts on their backs right now, storage buildings just gone and those 30 people, there's thousand of people in the same boat as them that don't have a home right now. we need basic things, foot, watered, there's such need right now. we know you'll get back on your secrete and i look forward to comhaving a steak. >> thank you very much. >> at least six people were killed in an am soviet republic warehouse in edmundsville, illinois were killed after taking a hit by a tornado. paolo sandoval is live at scene. i understand that there is some news in terms of an investigation of what went on
10:10 am
there. what can you tell us? >> reporter: yeah, john. we've actually learned that inspectors with the occupational health and safety administration have been here after that tornado basically zeroed in on that amazon shipping center destroying part of it and leading to the deaths of six people inside. we're learned there's a total of 46 people inside that facility on friday night when the storm tore through there. the team has about on ground assisting here based on what that office is killing cnn. and after that we would learn of any safety violations that they violated. they don't want to know if there's anything or not that triggered this investigation or if it's just routine. serious matters and six people's
10:11 am
lives were cut short and we've heard from amazon basically all weekend leading up to that storm the moments before it struck. about 11 minutes and she received word of the tornado warnings and loudspeakers were urging their staff to seek shelter in some established safe zones inside that have facility. amazon saying they are active life working with members of the community and specifically those family members that have been affected by this event to make sure that they have all the assistance that they need so it's interesting to see what federal investigators will find out at the end of this. that's really the key headline here, that osha investigators and compliance officers are in fact on the ground overseeing the efforts to clean up. we do understand the search and rescue and recovery and right now it's all about clearing this up and then seeing if the facility itself could be reopened. >> paolo sandoval in
10:12 am
edwardsville, illinois. thank you so much. it's important to ask these questions. even as the cleanup is getting under way over this immense 100-mile stretch of devastation you do need to ask these questions to make sure that these facilities and homes and everything are as safe as they can be going forward. anna? >> john berman, thank you. we'll check back. great reporting. following major developments in the january 6th investigation, a lawyer for former trump's chief of staff mark meadows making an urgent plea to reconsider their plans to hold him in contempt of congress. why he says meadows should be spared just ahead. plus, a surge in coronavirus cases sparking a return to masks and vaccine requirements in some major american cities. philadelphia now implementing a vaccine mandate for indoor events? details just ahead .

10:17 am
select committee investigating january 6 votes to hold mark meadows in contempt, his lawyer makes a final push to try to prevent that from happening asking the committee to reconsider. this as we learn more about what donald trump's chief of staff already turned over to lawmakers, including a stunning email from the day before the capitol riot, and in that email meadows tells someone that the national guard would, quote, protect pro-trump people on january 6th. now we don't note full context of what he meant, but that message is part of a trove of documents meadows has turned
10:18 am
over to the house panel. that was before he stopped cooperating. cnn's whitney wild is tracking this story. whitney, who more do we know about meadows' e-mails and the new letters regarding the could be tempt proceedings? >> well, what we know about the email is that he actually supplied it to the committee and this is a key sticking point, ana, because the committee has maintained that meadows has provided a wealth of information and all they want to do is ask them about documents that he himself provided and yet he won't stitt in for a deposition. he argues that he should still have the executive privilege and privilege of confidentiality and that actually mark meadows has no opportunity to testify because there's a risk he would infringe on the former president's right to executive privilege, and he can't sit down for a deposition. that's what this seven-page letter to meadowses, and it list
10:19 am
a long list of reasons why meadows believes he cannot testify, again the executive privilege question that they believe is still hanging in the balance. further, they are really urging the committee not to follow through with the criminal contempt charge because they feel that meadows is a good faith actor and doesn't feel that he can offer this information so it's totally inappropriate for the committee to go after him criminally when he's trying to do the right thing. the committee has always maintained they just want to ask questions about information meadows has already supplied. they say they have given him plenty of time to provide a deposition. they have gone back and forth with him hand his counsel. enough over the last month, and so now they have no choice but to rover him to a criminal contempt charge, ana. something to watch, and i'll note that this letter is different. saw a very different play from jeffrey clark's counsel and in the end jeffrey clark's counsel said we'll sit for an interview, pump the brakes on the contempt
10:20 am
charge. it does not appear meadows will ever sit for a depp sgligs we anticipate a vote on the committee but as soon as tonight. thanks for your update. let bring in carrie cordero. first, let's talk about the contents of this email from mark meadows in the lead-up to january 6th saying the national guard would be present to protect pro-trump people on that day. what does this tell you? how significant is this? >> well, it's obviously a very serious allegation that seems to come up in that email. now, i haven't seen it reported who it's from and the other details surrounding it and the context for it, but this is precisely the type of thing that the committee would want to question mark meadows about. what was the context that have? were there serious discussions going on within the executive branch between the white house and the defense department and
10:21 am
national guard units about protecting pro-trump supporters on that day or rioters on that day? so it's obviously an area that he's already communicated that content of the email to the committee, and so they want to ask him about it, and it goes to the heart of their investigation. >> and it's their argument for why executive privilege doesn't apply to everything that they may want to ask mark meadows when he's providing some information and they want to get clarity around what he's provided. i would awesome that that is not covered by executive privilege, but his counsel has argued he's turned over 6,000-plus documents and now he's just asking for you to hold on, pump the brakes while these executive privilege claims get worked out. what do you make of the new i guess request by the attorney for them not to move forward with contempt proceedings? should they? >> well, i think the committee
10:22 am
has a credible basis, and they have laid out in a report a basis on which to make the referral and then have the house vote, and that's -- their argument hedges on whether or not mark meadows is acting in god faith. his lawyer will argue that he is, but there is a strong argument on behalf of the committee that he's not because he has already provided a wealth of documents and now they want to ask him about it, so to the extent that he thought that there was some claim of privilege that is contradicted by his actually providing these documents. in addition, although it was in a separate matter, there was a recent d.c. circuit case that supports president biden's assertion over privilege in these matters related to the january 6th committee, in other words, president biden holds the privilege. he has said that he's not asserting it with respect to the january 6th commission, so mark meadows really doesn't have a basis to make that claim. the courts have already said in
10:23 am
other contexts that the current president's authority is what governs in this case, not the former president's advice that he's giving to his former staffers. >> so assuming these criminal contempt proceedings do move forward and the house the mattingly votes to then refer it to the justice department, is it clear to you whether the doj will indict? >> i don't think it's 100% clear, ana, because i don't think this is as straightforward as the bannon case n.bannon he simply did not cooperate. he made it clear that he was never going to. mark meadow is in a different situation. he has provided thousands of pages of documents already to the committee. he's engaging with the committee through his counsel. he should, in my opinion, sit down with the committee and answer questions about certain documents that he's already provided, and his argument is weaker because he also has published a book where he
10:24 am
describes conversations. i haven't read the book, but according to reports that i've read the book and the committee's report, it says that in his book he describes conversations with former president trump. so, in that sense the committee has some good arguments, but it is not quite as straightforward, and i think doj will probably take a longer time and have a more nuanced analysis in this situation. >> yeah, it took a few weeks for them to indict bannon on criminal contempt charges. we'll see what happens moving forward. carrie cordero, thanks very much. >> thanks. she survived the deadly storm, but the business she and her husband literally built from the ground up did not. we're back in hard-hit kentucky next. ♪

10:30 am
stabbeding. >> this is the beauty shop. my husband built it for me about a year and a half ago, so -- >> reporter: it's been open for one year? >> yeahch it was a year in june, so a little over a year. >> reporter: and you said your husband built it for you. it was something you always wanted to do? >> oh, yeah. it was my dream. we bought a piece of land and then we found out that i was pregnant so we started to build. yeah, he always knew i wanted it so he built it completely by himself. >> reporter: so this was you come here every day? >> yeah, i mean, this is my second home. we're here, me and six other girls are here all the time. >> reporter: and what happened here? >> well, the tornado just -- i mean, it's gone. i -- we were all working that day. i was supposed to work late, but
10:31 am
i ended up cancelling my client, my later ones because i figured it would get pretty bad and the next thing you know i get a call at like 11:00 at night and they say that it has been hit and that there was one wall standing. >> reporter: when you drove back here and got a first look? >> oh, i just baweled my eyes out. my parents was already here and my husband was here. i was at home with the kids so when we all got up i came here and just broke down. >> reporter: i'm so sorry. >> thank you. >> reporter: can you show me a little bit around? >> yeah. if you can tell where -- >> so, right here would have been where three of our girls were. >> reporter: okay. >> back here we have the shampoo bowls. surprisingly they are still
10:32 am
there. our bathroom is back there. our color room, our break room. this is where i worked right over there, and our waiting area was up there. >> reporter: and then you drive by and then this is what struck us here. watch your step. when we first drove by everything is gone except for this. >> yeahch it's still there. i have no idea how. >> reporter: this is the station chair. >> yeah. i mean, it was probably about right here, but, yeah. this would probably be actually my chair then if it just scooted over. i don't know -- there's a few chairs, but, yeah, this one -- i don't know where the other chairs were. >> the walls here.
10:33 am
there's a lot of destruction here. >> yeah. >> reporter: but have you no walls, no nothing. >> nothing. it's all gone. >> reporter: what are you going to do now? >> i honestly have no idea. luckily we had insurance, but since it was only, you know, a year old it obviously wasn't paid for, so we had insurance to cover that, but i don't have enough money to rebuild, so we're kind of just stuck in the air with what to do so the girls and i will have to -- the girls don't have anywhere to work. we don't have any equipment that we can even go somewhere else and work because all that is expensive. so, i don't know. we'll just have to see what to do. we're just kind of playing it by ear right now. >> reporter: how are you doing? >> i'm a little stressed and devastated, but it could have been so much worse.
10:34 am
i'm just -- i praise god it was not my house and none of the girls were here and my family is okay because i know hundreds of other people are in far worse condition, so i'm devastated but i'm thankful at the same time. >> reporter: devastated but thankful at the same time. cory's husband are fine. her two children are fine, and all the people who work at the salon are fine, too. i have to tell you, you drive by there on the street. it's an eerie amazing site. there's a big concrete slab and no walls standing and just that one salon chair sitting there for the world to see. cory has a gofundme page right now. we'll put it up on the screen so people can see it. obviously everyone eager to help as many people as they can in this community. there is so much need here. for more information about how you can help tornado victims across the board go to ana, back to you.

introducing the all-electric eqs. happy holidays from mercedes-benz. here's the sobering statistic. new data from the cdc shows 1 this 100 seniors people 65-plus here in the u.s. has died of covid. let bring in dr. jorge rodriguez, a board certified internal medicine specialist and viral researcher. doctor, it's a stunning number. what is your reaction to this news? 1 in 100 seniors in the u.s.
10:41 am
dead from covid. >> well, when i first heard it i was startled. seriously, that's an incredible number, and i hope that people don't think oh, well, it's somebody older. everybody lived their lives. 65 and older. i mean, 65 is not what used to be 65, and right now we need to protect these very vital people in our -- in our society, and i want anybody that's younger than that to realize that everything they have, everything that they have accomplished has been on the shoulders of somebody who was older than them and has created that for them, and in most society the older people are the most revered because of what he have contributed, you know, and where we are because of them. so we really need to sort of protect our seniors and, i mean, it's just incredible when i heard that statistic. >> it's not just the elderly. i'm thinking about my own parent who are in that category, and right now here in the u.s. we're going in the wrong direction.
10:42 am
coronavirus cases in the u.s. are up 45% from last month. we are seeing some jurisdictions take action. philly now saying you will soon have to have proof of vaccination for all indoor dining. here in new york where i am, if you have an indoor public space that does not have a vaccine requirement, then everyone has to wear a mask inside. former fda commissioner scott gotlieb says we should expect to see more of this. listen. >> most of those cases right now are being driven by very dense epidemics in the great lakes region and new england. in those parts of the country it is prudent to try to take steps to control the spread. certain states like new hampshire and massachusetts where the health care systems are beginning to get pressed. mask mandates are the easiest thing we can do to sort of collective action that puts some downward pressure on spread. it would be a temporary measure to protect the health care systems at this point? >> doctor, do you agree with dr. gotlieb, and if so what should be the criteria for
10:43 am
putting the mask mandates in place? >> i agree 110% with dr. gotlieb. now is the time, maybe two weeks ago was maybe the time to start taking these requirements seriously. i hate using the word mandate. that's such a trigger for so many people. the time to do preventive measures is before the epidemic gets worse, and we are now seeing an upward swing in many states, and in some it may be too late. as he said dense populations like new york or even family situations and theaters and things like that, that's when we have to protect ourselves because that's when it spreads. so when we become caution, is when we have had the worst outbreaks in this country. once it goes ballistic there's
10:44 am
nothing more. >> health officials expect omicron to become the dominant variant in london in the next 48 hours as uk is facing a tidal wave of omicron cases in the uk. right now we know omicron has been identified in at least 29 states. do you expect it to overtake delta as the dominant spread? >> the uk information and uk data. omicron has been doubling every two to three days. that's astounding. remember when covid first started. the cases doubled every two to three weeks. this is doubling at a rate that's ten times greater, and don't be fooled. don't be complacent because right now the word of mouth is sort of the omicron is not as severe. there's no such thing as a benign lesser than covid infection. there are deaths that have been record and every time someone get infected they will create new variants and the next one may be the big daddy, you know,
10:45 am
of all variants. >> i want to ask you about a study from researchers at oxford university which found that there is a substantial decrease in effective ney of the pfizer and the astrazeneca coronavirus vaccines against the omicron variants. will this people more or less likely to get vaccinated? >> i think your guess is as good as mifnl i think the people that are vigilant, that are aware and that are going -- that have already gotten vaccinated will get boosters and i urge them to get them as soon as possible. where i think the issue slice that the people that haven't been vaccinated really need to be made aware that this virus will eventually seek out and land on the people that are most susceptible, and those are the ones that have not been vaccinated, a, and also the ones who have not been boosted. it's not a matter of if. it's a matter of when. >> dr. jorge rodriguez, always appreciate you and your expertise. thanks for sharing your time and

welcome back. california governor gavin newsom said if it works for banning abortions, why not use it for gun control. newsom citing the new texas abortion law that the supreme court has allowed to remain in effect. said, quote, if that is the precedent, then we'll let california sue those who put ghost guns on our streets f. texas could ban abortion, california can ban deadly weapons of war and save lives. under the legislation, people could sue anyone who manufactured, distributes or sells an assault weapon ghost gun kit or parts and they could be fined $10,000 for violation and plus attorney fees. elie honig, could this happen. might this be a viable legal option for gun control or is

this just a political stunt? >> well it could be both. the question will it actually happen, that is a question of political will for governor newsom an the democratic controlled legislature in california. if they want to pass a state law, they'll have the political power to do so. but the bigger point here, there is a stunned element to this. the point that gavin newsom is trying to make, if texas could do this, then why can't we. because texas passed a state law that directly undercuts established federal precedent, roe v. wade, in the area of abortion. newsom saying we'll do the same thing on guns and who knows where this could lead down the line. so ultimately many case would be challenged in court and we would have to see how it comes out. >> and yet, he's going this route because the supreme court has let that texas law stand at this point. it hasn't ruled on the constitutionality of the texas abortion law. but by allowing it to stand, as challenges against it proceed,

it's sort af-- sort of alaws th. so what do you think the supreme court will do? >> well this is a pandora's box that has now been opened. texas opened it up and the supreme court has thus far allowed it to stay open. i do think we're going to see other states weighing in and there is a concern, no matter which side of the aisle one is on, there is a concern this will open the doors for states at will to undermine the supreme court, whether it is on abortion on one side or gun rights on the other side or religious freedom or the rights of gays to get married. so the concern here is we're going to see each state saying i don't care what the supreme court has said, we're going to use this strange procedural mechanism that texas invented to pass whatever we want. and just sotomayor, said this is what the civil war was fought over. who controls, the federal or state governments? >> do you see the supreme court then revisiting this texas
10:54 am
abortion law so they could finally weigh in on its constitutionality and close this pandora's box. >> i think they ought to. i don't they that box serves anyone's interest. if the supreme court allows this to with stand, they're taking away their own power to interpret the law for the entire country and they're saying states you can all do what you please. and that would go a long way towards changing the role of the supreme court in our country. >> what needs to happen then for them to do that? what is the process. >> the supreme court has to decide to review the merits of the texas case. they're not there yet. when they ruled last week they sent it back to the district court, limiting the way that the lawsuit could be challenged. so they need to take one of these cases out of texas or out of california one day, that is phot ph
