7:03 am
point. >> it is through the opening round of the u.s. open. on their feet at louis armstrong. >> announcer: this morning's "eye opener" is presented by toyota. let's go places. >> i'm going cuckoo puffs for coco. what's fun is watching her and also watching her parents watch her. we're shearing for you and serena. welcome to "cbs this morning." i'm gayle king with tony to could you please ail r -- dokoupil who made it here. we're going to begin with tropical storm dorian because he's bearing toward puerto rico. islanders now expect a direct hit. forecasters say this storm is gaining strength before its likely landfall later there
7:04 am
today. authorities say it could bring landslides, life-threatening flooding and power outages, too. >> dorian is also on track to hit the bahamas and florida this week as a possible category 2 hurricane. president trump has already declared an emergency in puerto rico, and our lead national correspondent david begnaud is in ponce, puerto rico. there you are, david, in the thick of it again. what are the weather conditions right now? >> reporter: beautiful. you wouldn't know anything is coming, tony. last night the storm strengthened slightly, 16 miles an hour, and the path of the storm has moved north. sohe metro area of san juan where a majority of people live, they look like they're going to get a direct hit. if you're sitting at home saying, david, don't overblow it talking about a direct hit from a tropical stormrm. you're talking about a troca storm heading to a very vulnerable island with a weak grid that collapsed after hurricane maria and is still being rebuilt right now. the fear that this could be disastrous is why the federal
7:05 am
government has sent 500 employees here in addition to the 3,000 they already have. it's why the local government have told people gather ten days of supplies. it's why people still reeling from hurricane maria are very worried about dorian. as tropical storm dorian takes aim at puerto rico, people here are still recovering from the devastation of hurricane maria, and that was two years ago. so that's why now they are preparing for the worst. >> the land is not pretty anymore. >> reporter: some people who don't trust the government's preparations have decided to leave. >> i'm secure here with the power, the food, the security. so i'm leaving. >> reporter: most people are staying. we went to fema to find out how ready they are. what gives you confidence that you're better prepared now? >> i think, first of all, the amount of supplies we have.
7:06 am
>> reporter: two years after hurricane maria, 30,000 homes are still covered with blue tarps. about 1,000 roads remain impassable around the island. >> if you look around at this warehouse, we have fooiive where only had one. we've spent the last two years learning some lessons and making sure we're much better prepared. >> reporter: yesterday president trump claimed congress declared $92 million for puerto rico in aid after maria's devastation. that's not true. congress has only allocated 42 billion. less than 14 billion of that has actually gotten to the island. the ceo of the island's power company made a bold prediction last night. he said if the entire island were to lose power in a worst-case scenario, he predicts he could have the lights back on in two weeks. >> we have to restore as quick as possible. it's not acceptable what happened the last time. many people waited for 11 months
7:07 am
to get power back. imagine if it was your family. it's going to be different. >> reporter: that's a tall prediction from mr. ortiz. we'll have to see what happens. after hurricane maria, the communications grid collapsed. nobody could talk to anybody. so fema has brought in 100 satellite phones that they want to give to every mayor on the island. if you were watching it is cbs evening news last night, we told you the phones hadn't been activated and we were less than 24 hours before landfall. today fema says they're activated and they're going to hand them out to every single mayor today. they don't have much time. in less than 15 hours, we should feel the effects of the storm. this morning the u.s. virgin islands are also under a hurricane watch. cbs news climate and weather contributor jeff berardelli is here tracking dorian. where else is the storm likely headed, do you think? >> if you are located on the southeast coast, pay very close attention to the system. a lot has changed since last
7:08 am
night. let's talk about it. you can see a big blowup of thunderstorms on the northeastern side, that's the stronger side. it has shifted east. it's a little stronger than it was last night. winds are 60 miles an hour. it's moving northwest. notice the system is likely probably to pass just to the east of puerto rico. that means the worst of it over the virgin islands. puerto rico is on the better side, but still, heavy rain and gusty winds and power outages are possible. that's the official forecast track. moves near puerto rico this afternoon, winds around 70 miles an hour just short of a hurricane. but look at this. it moves over a very nurturing environment for strengthening across the bahamas and towards florida. reaches the florida area by sunday. monday now predicted to be a category 2 storm. we put our spaghetti model plats on. some actually take it along the coast and not into northeast florida. it's going to miss the big mountains of haiti and the dominican republic. that means it maintains its strength. look how hot the waters are.
7:09 am
it's predicted to be a category 2. it could easily be a cat 3 or 4. pay close attention. >> with fema facing a serious situation in puerto rico and florida, the trump administration is taking millions designated for disaster relief to pay for operations along the mexican border. the department of homeland security says it will move $271 million out of its budget to help build larger facilities for migrants detained along the border. dhs says the transfer will not affect disaster relief operations, but one house democrat says the move could have deadly consequences. cbs news says the maker of oxycontin has offered to pay billions of dollars to settle lawsuits stemming from the opioid crisis. a government source with knowledge of these negotiations says purdue pharma is offering billions of dollars.
7:10 am
they answered questions about a painkiller in deposi >> do you believe produced marketing was overaggressive? >> no. do you believe produced marketing was appropriate? >> i believe so. >> anna werner has been closely following this story for months now, and i guess the big question is what led to the release of the this individuis ? >> this deposition was released as part of a 2015 lawsuit brought by purdue pharma in the state of kentucky, a lawsuit that was ultimately settled for over $20 million. as we said, that more than eight-hour video deposition obtained and in it, the former president and chairman of purdue pharma, says under oath he does not know how much the family has made off the sale of oxycontin. purdue pharma is best known as the developer of oxycontin. the company is facing billions of dollars in potential liability for its role in the nation's opioid crisis. it's unclear how much purdue's
7:11 am
owners, the sackler family, would have to pay. the company has released a statement saying it's prepared to defend itself in court but says the company has made clear it sees little good coming from years of wasteful litigation and appeals and the people in communities affected by the opioid crisis need help now. talks of a potential settlement come two days after that landmark decision in oklahoma. in that case a judge ordered pharmaceutical giant johnson & johnson to pay $572 million for its role in the state's opioid crisis. adriana? >> anna, thank you. nearly two dozen women who say jeffrey epstein abused them have told their stories to a judge while newly revealed police video takes us inside epstein's florida mansion. the video comes from a 2005 investigation of epstein's relationships with underage girls. epstein was jailed in new york city on sex trafficking charges earlier this year. he took his own life more than two weeks ago. mola lenghi is covering the
7:12 am
case. what does this show? >> the footage appears to show the ground floor of jeffrey epstein's home, the upstairs as well as the pool area. jeffrey epstein's house just one of the locations where many of his victims stai they weay they abused. the video also appears to show one of his high-profile alleged accomplices. the 2005 video shows armed police enter jeffrey epstein's palm beach home. according to palm beach affiliate, they received a warning. upstairs there is a portfolio for ghislaine maxwell. she has been accused of finding the underage girls. she has not been charged. there also appears to be a gra-haired man and a brunette woman in the press room. they are unable to label the
7:13 am
photo. epstein was convicted of child prostitution and served 13 months in jail prior to this. epstein hanged himself this month while facing new criminal charges. they have decided to dismiss the pfinancier.t the disgraceful epstein accuser shawntae davies is one of 20 victims the court heard from during a hearing in new york tuesday. >> it makes me sick to my stomach that there are perpetrators out there who obviously helped him in many ways for a very long time, and they're still out there with no punishment. >> reporter: in court davies and other accusers took aim at epstein's accomplices. davies claims she was introduced to epstein by ghislaine maxwell. another one also said she was introduced by maxwell. gloria allred represents the
7:14 am
accusers. >> epstein's death, whether it was a suicide or murder, does not end the case. it does not end their fight for justice. >> epstein's attorneys say they also want answers after questioning the medical examiner's finding that epstein died by hanging himself. they say the report is inadequate. they believe the broken bones in epstein's neck are more consistent with assault and homicide. adriana? >> in the next hour we will talk with epstein accuser shawntae davies about the claims she made in court and what it was like hearing the other women's stories. the ceo of juul, the top-selling e-cigarette company, is responding to the growing number of breathing cases of people who vape. they're looking into 200 possible cases of severe lung diseases that may be tied to the use of e-cigarettes. the cases are reported now in at least 22 states. in his first broadcast interview
7:15 am
as juul lab ceo, kevin burns talks to us about his concerns. >> it seems like every day we get a new report from some health department around the country saying that someone has disease tied to vaping.vere lung when that kind of report pops up, what's the reaction? >> worrisome. worrisome for the category, worrisome for us if we contributed to it. cdc is leading the investigations. we're obviously in close contact wihe >> you are? you're working with them? >> yeah. they're in charge of the instigation. we'd like to get all the specifics that we can. we want to make sure we have access to the information so if there is any issue that was driven associated with us that we can get to the root cause and understand it. >> why not take a pause? why not say we have nearly 200 people hospitalized with lung illnesses tied to vaping. we're the biggest seller of this stuff. why not just take a timeout until we figure out what's going on? >> we don't even know if it's
7:16 am
related to nicotine products. most of the reports say it's related to thc. >> i don't know about most. >> most have said it's related to thc. we don't have the details in those reports. if there was any indication that there was an adverse health condition related to our product, i think we would take very swift action associated with it. >> so you feel confident enough to keep selling despite these reports, that juul is not contributing to these more than a hundred thousand dozen cases? >> at this point until we see the facts, and cdc is leading the investigation, yes, we do. >> that's ceo kevin burns. he's very confident in his product. what's interesting is cigarettes themselves were a tragedy in the 20th century. people are critical of juul because they don't want to see a second tragedy with e-cigarettes. his take is if we don't see a chance for success with juul products, that's also a tragedy. it's an interview you'll only see on "cbs this morning." he's going to unveil in the conversation tomorrow a major
7:17 am
new initiative to address the thing that's on a lot of people's minds, and that's the epidemic of vaping among teenagers that seems unabated at this point. >> i think if you were affected by this, you would say, how many more facts do you need? but that's why you were on the red eye. >> that's true. so i'm a little dented this morning. >> we're glad you made it. we're learning more about the strategy of two high-profile defendants in the college admissions scandal. lori loughlin and her husband rushed by journalists in boston yesterday before appearing before a federal judge. now they face questions about potential conflicts of interest involving their lawyers. carter evans is live with this story. carter, will the two of them be tried separately? >> reporter: no, they're in this together. they want to be represented by the same attorney, and from what we heard in court yesterday, they're going to pursue an aggressive legal defense strategy rather than taking any plea deals, as many others have.
7:18 am
lori loughlin and her husband mossimo giannulli showed up with their heads down, quite different than previous showings. >> i think their demeanor tends to reflect they are taking this matter seriously. they've been talking to their lawyers, they know they're going into court. this is really happening. >> reporter: lori, do you think you can win this trial? >> reporter: they wouldn't answer questions minutes after entering the courtroom where they formally waived their rights to separate attorneys. the judge asked about a potential conflict of interest. some of the attorneys representing the couple work at a law firm representing another defendant caught up in the admissions scandal who is now cooperating with prosecutors. the judge is expected to rule on that matter in a few days. loughlin and giannulli are accused of paying half a million dollars to rick singer, the
7:19 am
mastermind of the scandal, to get their two daughters accepted into the university of southern california by falsely designating them as crew team recruits. through these court proceedings, we're also learning more about a potential defense strategy. lawyers in court tuesday claim the couple was donating to a nonprofit, unaware of what singer may or may not have been doing. >> that's great if the jury believes it, but the jury might not. especially if other parents say, we all knew what was going on here. >> reporter: they're going to be back in court on october 2nd, but we're soon going to have the results of another very high-profile case. felicity huffman is saet to be sentenced in just two good wednesday morning to you. a cooler day across the bay area with that onshore breeze kicking in for us and with that we'll see temps about 5 to 10 degrees

8:20 am
>> you were hired to be a masseuse for him? >> initially, yeah. >> what point does it go from being a masseuse and traveling with him to a victim? >> it progressed pretty rapidly. the first encounter i had with him, he did, you know, he masturbated in front of me. obviously, that alone should have been enough for me to never come back, but the way that they were able to orchestrate and know, led me to believe that something like that wouldn't happen again. so i did go back a second time. >> when you say they you are talking about he and ghislaine? >> yes. >> she has denied, she hasn't been charged with anything, she has denied she was involved in anything inappropriate. what do you say to that? >> i say, gosh, with ghislaine it's very confusing because she is someone who i really believed cared for me. the way that she kind of

approached the situation was that she felt for the situation i was in and, you know, i was young and struggling and had come from a, you know, not such a privileged background. she seemed wanting to, you know, help better my life and even, you know, was personal about it. >> right. so you are a masseuse. he is very inappropriate with you. >> yeah. >> and it goes from that to what? >> so there were a couple of appointments in between that first encounter, and when it progressed that nothing happened, which led me to believe it wouldn't happen again. >> so you go back, and then? >> so it was about the third or fourth encounter, meeting the two of them where, you know, things progressed to rape. >> while you were giving him a massage? >> yeah. >> he raped you during that encounter? >> yeah. >> and after that you still

8:23 am
suspicious of it. i go back and forth because, you know, part of me thinks, okay, so he signed that will two days before, so that is obviously a red flag that he was planning to commit suicide, but i feel, and i feel like some of the other victims would agree, his ego was so large and he was so manipulative and so intelligent that i really strongly believe that he still thought he was going to get out of it. i think he signed that will thinking he was going to get out of it and disappear. like hide that money and disappear. it's hard for me to wrap my brain around him killing himself because i don't see that. but then -- >> what was he like? i can't understand how this man was able to get away with this for so long by women who are all telling similar stories, but yet seem to think they were the only
8:24 am
ones. >> yeah. >> what was he like? >> he made it very confusing because he would disguise the abuse with education, trips to a bookstore and pick out whatever books you want. some girls have experiences of other lavish shopping trips. with my experience it was, you know, education based. and he sent me to school. he sent my sister to schoo >> what kind of school? >> culinary school. she studied abroad to be a translator in spain. so it was very masked by various things that he would kind of just throw out there. >> so as we sit here today what does justice look like for you now that he is no longer here? >> i don't know what justice looks like now. i was asking myself that as i was trying to fall asleep last night.

seynabou kris ciss is here with samantha barry, the editor of "glamour." welcome to the table. what is this jern sis about? >> your september cover has to represent what you stand for in fashion and my team really came and said we stand for size inclusiveness, diversity, and representation. we wanted to get the five supers. >> i love this walking shot. >> right? they really represent, yes, absolutely they're all over size 12. they're sizes 12 to 16, but they represent so much more than that. it's about people seeing themselves in women's "glamour." that discussion around plus size
8:37 am
is really important to us. 68% of women in america are over a size 14, but they're only seen in 2% of media. like that is a huge difference. most of the women watching here this morning are over a size 14 and they're only seeing themselves representing in 2% of media. it's crazy. >> why do you think that is? it is crazy. >> there's a lot of people like me. editors need to make a decision. editors like me need to make a decision to normalize and put different types of people on the covers, the pages, the story lines, on tv. that's really important. >> seynabou, you walk the in a room and everyone recognizes. what were you told? >> a lot of too something. it was too tall, i'm 6'2". too dark. and recently too skinny because of the language we have surrounding the curve industry where you have to fit a certain
8:38 am
size or certain look. because we have this binary, people are obsessed with putting you on one side of it or the other. it was just about breaking those labels and just doing it for myself like saying i don't have to look like anyone, no one has to look up to me. i have to do the job, and i don't -- i'm not too much of anything. >> no. but i like what christian said about you. you're calm, cool, collected, powerf powerful, confident without trying too hard. there's a casual elegance about you. what do you want people to know about you? what is the message you want to send about other models that look like you? >> for me, it's like let's just normalize it. instead of os traizing girls of darker color, the romance is sizing and exott sizing. we have to be spectacular. we don't get to just exist. i don't want to just be a shock when people walk past me in a
8:39 am
campaign or in the street. i want visibility for all of us. it should be normal. it shouldn't be i'm a token person in the room. >> or there can only be one. >> or there can only be one. it'sing to want to see two dark girls or curvy girls in a campaign at once. there seems to be the idea once contract. i just want us to be considerate as part of the gate. >> when you were growing up before issues were focused this this ways, what were you seeing, and did you see yourself. >> and if not, how did that affect you? >> i grew up in senegal. there was no lack of beautiful dark women surrounding me. i grew up surrounded by them. growing up in america, we weren't on tv. we were barely in magazines or on commercials. i grew up to think, i want to be like x, y, and z or look like.
8:40 am
it would be nice not to be just considered a great thing because i'm visible. i think there's so much more. >> sam, you were telling me in the green room this is a call to action. haven't we heard this calo action before? >> we've heard it a lot of times, but we're not. in "glamour" we look at it on the catwalk. it should be the normal, right? i ink i'm going to keep calling that action because we're not yet. they're not represented in a massive way, and it is a multi-billion-dollar industry. s so many women who want to buy great fashion clothes. we're not there yet. >> you're getting a great reaction, a really great reaction. hopefully this is a call to action that everybody is going to. go, you, sam. nice to see you. >> sam and seynabou, thank you
