7:04 am
squalls and gusting winds pummeled the area around new york on tuesday dumping 5 feet of snow in some spots, falling at rates unto 5 inches an hour. this time lapsed video shows a wall of snow advancing toward the city. the snow began piling up tuesday burying people in their homes and leaving drivers stranded along stretches of roadway. close to 150 cars were stuck on a four-mile stretch of the new york state throughway and six miles south of buffalo, the niagara women's basketball team were stuck on their bus for more than 24 hours. >> we're stressing to people not to drive if you don't have to. we see multiple people who have no reason to be out who are now stranded in their car, injured. >> reporter: new york governor andrew cuomo issued a state of emergency in ten counties. first responders scrambled to assist as many people as they could, but near whiteout
7:05 am
conditions brought deadly consequences. >> sadly, we have to announce we found an individual today, a 46-year-old male in the town of alban. his car was buried under approximately 12 to 15 feet of snow and he was found deceased. >> reporter: clearing a path under these conditions is even stopping snowplow drivers in their tracks. >> plows can no longer plow the snow. there's so much snow it's like plowing a brick wall. >> reporter: it's no lock longer snowing right now but by tonight another system is expected to move in and dump more snow on the areas hardest hit by the first lake effect system. by friday, 100 inches of snow could be on the ground. that's a year's worth of snow in just three days. >> all right, jericka. thank you very much. this morning, the women's basketball team, as she mentioned, is out of danger. their bus left for home at 10:00 p.m. monday after playing a game in pittsburgh. they got stuck in the storm in

7:07 am
you know we know there are people who need first responders even more than we do. we are a team. we're together a lot. you know, we're -- we know how to handle adversity and i think our group has done a great job. >> wow. >> just wild, right? >> yeah. >> we're happy to report police reached the team early this morning. they put them in patrol cars. they were able to drive away safely. they boarded another bus and now they're on their way back home. >> she painted quite a picture, didn't she? >> glad they're okay. >> not the team-building exercise they had in mind. >> all 50 states, they say, yep, even part of hawaii could see below freezing temperatures again tonight. meteorologist danielle niles of cbs station wbz is tracking this cold snap and the epic lake-effect snow event. danielle, good morning. >> good morning, and good morning to our viewers in the west. lake-effect snow, the big story across the country. mild lake waters and the cold air blowing over it wind direction very important. it's that persistent wind coming
7:08 am
off the lake that creates instability, picks up some of that moisture and creates localized bands. one city or town could see a couple of inches. we're talking about feet and counting. in fact, by the time we get to tomorrow morn additional bands of snow will drop 1 to 2 feet with some isolated amounts of three feet. so it's the cold air the story as well. it is a little bit milder here on the west coast. we've had pockets rain all the way from rain up through seattle. 53 degrees for a high today. 46 in portland. we will be in the 60s to near 70 when you get back to l.a. 48 in salt lake city. and 44 degrees in denver today. only in the 30s from billings to 21 in fargo. >> all right danielle thank you. this morn, israelis are demanding retribution after two palestinians kill five men in a synagogue in jerusalem. four rabbis and a police officer died. three victims were american.
7:09 am
allen pizzey is in jerusalem where tension is rising quickly. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. much of the violence is blamed on the ongoing problem of israeli occupation of palestinian land. this latest outrage highlights the other equally explosive side of the problem. in the aftermath of the carnage, there are dire warnings being billed here as a wave of terrorism taking on the overtones of a religious war but not in this ultraorthodox neighborhood where the four rain by rabbis lived and worshiped. at the synagogue where the attack occurred, there are now four widows and 21 orphans on one street. this morning, this worshiper summed it up this way. "our future in this world is dependent on god, he said "a man can never know what will happen to him." but israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu said there will be harsh retaliation for what he termed despicable murders. this is an example of what he had in mind. overnight, israeli security
7:10 am
forces destroyed the home of a palestinian who rammed his car into a commuter train stop last month killing a woman and a young baby. the homes of the two palestinians who attacked the synagogue will also be knocked down. what particular grievance inspired them to commit the outrage is still unclear. but a relative is quoted as saying he was sure they acted alone, not as part of an organized plot. security officials say such lone wolf attacks are the hardest to predict or prevent. the issues that fuel them range from israeli occupation of arab land to settlement building and the disputed site sacred to both muslims and jews. what occurs behind me, most are from a segment of society in israel that takes no part in the security operateationoperatations. they're only interested in prayer. jeff. >> allen, thank you very much. takata is pushing back against federal regulators who want to expand the recall. inflaters in those airbags can erupt and send metal fragments flying inside cars.

7:12 am
didn't notify nhtsa until 2008. what began as a small amount of recalled reached 11 million by this summer and now could double in size. all of this in advance of a senate hearing on thursday. representatives of honda, chrysler, and takatawill testify, along with stephanie. >> i had no idea it was a piece of the air bag embedded in my face. no one had any real clue. >> reporter: exploding takata air bags have been linked to five deaths and 100 injuries. bergman nearly died in her honda civic last year. you all got a recall notice three days after the accident? >> yes, sir. >> reporter: if that had arrived a week earlier? >> it would have been a lot different. a lot different. i would not have been riding around in my vehicle with a pretty much loaded gun at my face. >> overnight, takata responded, insisting they are staying with a regional recall or they want to at lead because a national
7:13 am
one could, quote, divert potential air bags from where they're needed. regulators say if takata does not agree, they will be forbesed. efforts to put the keystone xl pipeline are stalled at least for now. the senate failed to approve construction of the controversial project that stretches from canada all the way to the gulf of mexico. supporters fell just one vote short of the 60 needed to send the bill to the white house. but the incoming republican majority vowed to take the issue up again next year. >> we're going to be back on this bill in the new congress early on, and it comes down to the merits. it is about energy, it is about jobs. it is about economic growth, and it is about national security. >> president obama signaled he planned to veto the bill. he wants to wait for a state department review to end before making a final decision. rehabilitation for terrorists. that's what saudi arabia is doing with captured militants. but the results are missed.

7:15 am
overall. >> reporter: the inmates get free health care a monthly allowance and conjugal visits and if they pass their exams, there are more incentives, like government scholarships and even help paying for their weddings. over lunch, we met a star graduate who's now studying engineering. al qaeda? >> yes, al qaeda. >> reporter: he told us he joined al qaeda because he was angerred by the u.s. invasion of iraq. i'm an infidel. if you had met me at that point, would you have tried to kill me? >> of course. [ laughs ] >> you would have tried to kill me. i would have killed you, he said, but now i see you and i can live together in peace. those who don't reform in three months are sent back to prison and the saudis claim they have a success rate of over 80% but they've also had some embarrassing failures. when saudi police arrested 88

7:17 am
the pioneering supermodel was interested in a role on "the cosby show" and the two had dinner together. >> after dinner in my room he had given me wine and a pill. the next morning i woke up, and i wasn't wearing my pajamas. and i remember before i passed out that i had been sexually assaulted by this man. >> reporter: dickinson is the second woman to publicly accuse cosby of sexual assault this week. those sexual assault claims have dogged the comedian for years. the most recent wave of accusations was sparked last month when comedian hannibal burress called cosby a rapist on stage. the recent allegations have threatened upcoming feature projects starring the comedian. late last night netflix postponed the launch of a comedy special "bill cosby 77" due for release later this month. in a statement to cbs this morning, cosby's publicist said

drones are aircraft. that is a new ruling by the national transportation safety board. it is rattling america's fledgling drone industry this morning. jeff pegues is in washington with the government's new power over those unmanned flights.
8:12 am
jeff, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. >> that's cool jeff. >> reporter: it is cool. with more people buying and using these drones in this country the faa believes that ruling was a win for them. what this legal case means for them in their eyes is that anyone who is flying one of these drones recklessly or carelessly could be fined. the ruling stems from an incident back in 2011 but it could set a precedent for drones for a long time. the federal aviation administration is still considering how to regulate the commercial use of drones but the ntsb's ruling appears to give the aenlsgency the authority to punish those who don't fly drones safety. they compared drones to planes which are regulated by the faa. board members determined that an aircraft is any device used for flight in the air, a definition that include had manned or unmanned, large or small. that could apply to the drone that led to the court case in
8:13 am
the first place. it was flown above the university of virginia in 2011 by rafael perker. he was using it for commercial purposes to capture images of the campus. the faa fined him $10,000 but he fought it in court and won. the faa then appealed to the ntsb who ruled in its favor, sending the case back to an administrative law judge for further review. the uncertainty surrounding the regulations is having a ripple effect. >> we had a drone come within 50 feet of us. >> law enforcement officers can make arrests but prosecuting cases where drones fly in restricted airspace has been difficult. businesses large and small are also waiting for guidelines that would allow the use of unmanned aircraft to deliver packages and food. by some use when drone use really takes off, it will create industry that can support more than 70,000 jobs with an economic impact totaling more than $13 billion. but michael tuscano, the
8:14 am
president and ceo of the association of unmanned vehicle systems international says that won't happen until the faa's rules and regulations are in place. >> it's important to have regulatory structure in place to allow for the utilization of this technology. people say well the technology has outpaced the regulatory. that's true with any revolutionary type technology. so you hit upon what has to be done. we need to have rules in place. this is one of the few industries that wants to be regulated. >> do you think the perker ruling today was a step in the right direction or a setback? >> it does highlight that there's a lot of unanswered questions that still exist on how we're going to utilize unmanned aircraft systems or drones. >> today i'm going to show you a little bit about what we do. >> reporter: rafael perker the man who went to battle with the faa, declined our request for an interview but his attorney told us they disagree with the decision and are reviewing their options for the next step.
