this is the "cbs morning news" for monday, september 8th, 2014. good morning. i'm marlie hall in for anne-marie green. this morning we're watching the potential for severe weather in the southwest. heavy rain and flash floods are possible from southern california to utah. yesterday drenching rain and strong winds hit riverside, california, just southeast of los angeles. water poured down hillsides. on some streets the water was over 2 feet high, and powerful winds snapped large trees like match sticks. >> when trees came down i couldn't hear it because the thunderstorm was so loud. it was pounding. >> more wet weather is expected today. meteorologist eric fisher of our boston station wbz says all the rain is fallout from tropical storm norbert. >> well, the tropics have been very active this season, not so much in the atlantic but certainly in the eastern
pacific. this was norbert, a powerhouse hurricane. it's moving over cooler water now and has become a tropical storm and it's allowed a lot of tropical moisture to move up into the desert southwest. so we have a number of flash flood watches that are in effect through monday, numerous thunderstorm activity, very heavy rainfall, flash flooding a big concern here. we have already seen that and we'll continue with another round of storms on monday. here's a look at the timing. norbert staying mainly out to sea but fueling thunderstorms in particular southern california, nevada, across arizona into new mexico, watching for those rapidly changing conditions. that starts to wain by tuesday, however, we get a big cold blast starting on tuesday from our neighbors to the north. this takes over much of the united states by the end of the week. in terms of actual numbers, by wednesday we've got high temps in the 40s and 50s across the northern plains. by thursday cooler air moving southward down toward the oklahoma border into the east.
and by friday much of the east will be feeling the chill. i'm meteorologist eric fisher for cbs news. in georgia a strong storm damaged more than a dozen planes at a regional airport southeast of atlanta. four planes were flipped by the powerful winds but no one was injured. on wednesday president obama will lay out to the american people his plan for going after islamic militants. in the president's words, start going on some offensive. congress is back from its summer recess today, and mr. obama will explain his plan to congressional leaders tomorrow. brook silva braga is in washington. brook, good morning. >> good morning. well, the president was criticized late last month because he wasn't quite sure how to deal with the group isis. since then they've become more of a concern for iraq, syria, and washington. president obama says he now has a strategy to tackle isis in iraq and syria and he'll explain it to the nation wednesday.
>> i just want the people to understand the nature of it and to have confidence we'll deal with it. >> reporter: in an interview with nbc he said the militant strikes will continue and the next will involve a u.s.-led plan to defeat isis but that will not include american forces. >> this is not going to be an announcement about u.s. ground troops. this is not the equivalent of the iraq war. >> reporter: president obama plans to meet with congressional leaders on tuesday to receive support for the plan. both republicans and democrats have cite citizened the president for his lack of strategy. >> i want to congratulate the president. he's now on the offense. it's overdue but he's there. i think it's the right thing for america. >> reporter: republican congressman peter king believes the president can take action without additional authorization. >> it's probably better for him to get congressional approval but i -- which i would certainly vote for, but i don't believe he needs it. >> reporter: the obama
administration says nine other countries are on board to help destroy isis. and both secretary of state john kerry and defense secretary chuck hagel are visiting allies this week in an effort to strengthen that coalition. marlie. >> brook silva braga in washington. thanks so much. this morning the cdc is investigating a respiratory virus that sent hundreds of children to the hospital in the midwest. ten states are asking for help. one hospital in kansas city and missouri has treated more than 300 cases of the enterovirus. 15% of the patients ended up in intensive care. another nba team is up for sale this morning. less than a month after donald sterling was forced to sell the los angeles clippers. the owner of the atlanta hawks is voluntarily selling his team following the disclosure of a racially charged e-mail. mark strassmann has our report. >> reporter: in august of 2012 atlanta hawks co-owner bruce
levinson griped in an e-mail about the team's low attendance. my theory is the black crowds scared away the whites and tll is simply not enough affluent black fans to build a significant ticket base. i told our executives i want some white cheerleaders. i also balked when every fan picked out of a crowd to shoot time-out contest is black, and i have even bitched that the kiss cam is too black. he reported himself two months ago and before the league even finished its investigation, he announced he will sell the team. nba commissioner adam silver said in a statement the views he expressed are entirely unacceptable. i commend mr. levinson for self-reporting to the league office and for putting the best interests of the nba first. ken berger covers the nba for cbs sports. >> it's a business. it is not an old boy's club. it is not a fraternity.
it's a business, a $5 billion business. and if you're going to aspire to be a global brand, to be important and respected around the world, your conduct and the conduct of those in involved in your business has to measure up to that. >> reporter: the nba forced donald sterling to sell the los angeles clippers last month. sterling was caught making racist comments to his mistress in secretly recorded phone calls. >> it bothers me a lot that you want to broadcast that you're associating with black people. >> reporter: one of sterling's many kritd critics was bruce le. >> there can be zero tolerance for what he said, nothing more. those were racist bigoted remarks that we can't tolerate. >> donald sterling sold the los angeles clippers to microsoft ceo steve ballmer for $2 billion. the hawks are worth a fraction of that.

tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. those three important reasons are why eliquis is a better find for me. ask your doctor today if eliquis is right for you. grilled chicken, pico, fresh greens, cilantro, avocado, tortilla strips, and a drizzle of margarita sauce, all served with a bowl of soup. chili's fresh mex bowls from our lunch combo menu starting at 6 bucks. more life happens here. so why do they often act so naughty? shoes should feel nice. grrr... ooh! it's time to tame the shoe with dreamwalk ultra-slim insoles... grrr... so you can wear the shoes you're in the mood for... ...without them changing your mood. dreamwalk by dr. scholl's.
