i am anne makovec. we have breaking news for you. colin powell has died. his family made the announcement on facebook saying he died of complications from covid-19. he was the first black u.s. secretary of state, was in the george hw bush administration if you remember. cbs news is planning a special report. we'll go to that momentarily. back to you. >> thank you. we'll keep you updated on that story. overseas volcanic dust causing disruptions at the airport in spain. it has kept spurting lava and huge clouds of smoke and ash four weeks since the eruption started. a local airline was forced to cancel flights for a period of time. there is no immediate end in sight. about 7,000 people have been evacuated from homes. tornado damage assessment underway in several communities
5:17 am
in ohio. national weather service has confirmed that at least six tornadoes touched down saturday morning. the strongest storm hit southeast of south salem. residents there say for something that only lasted half a minute, it took so much. >> the wind was just crazy, powerful. we didn't have time to get in our cellar. >> we are probably talking at least a week to finish all the clean up. >> officials say the tornadoes originated from a thunderstorm late friday night and into saturday morning. we have a cbs news special report on the death of colin powell. >> complications from covid-19. his family says he was treated at walter reed national medical center when he was ill though they juan us to know he was fully vaccinated. nancy, good morning. i realize this is just breaking but have you heard anything about how long he had been in the hospital? >> reporter: we are getting new
5:18 am
details, gayle, courtesy of our pentagon correspondent david martin who says powell's wife also contracted covid-19. but she responded well to regeneron. she had been fully vaccinated and had a break through case as well. powell was 84 and had battled various other appointments including parkinson's. that may have made him more vulnerable when he got the break through case of covid. such a unique figure in washington, someone whose counsel was sought by both parties, encouraged to run by both parties, a four star general whose parents immigrated here from jamaica. he will be deeply missed here in washington, someone who was
5:19 am
so respected really. such a singular figure respected by both sides in that way. >> thank you very much. i want to bring in john dickerson chief political analyst for cbs news. i know he will be claimed by washington, dc, is a new york story, product of public schools, born in harlem, went to city college. when we think about his legacy in washington where he spent most of his professional career, what stands out to you? >> i think what stands out is he bridged the period from the cold war into the age of terrorism. he served under ronald reagan and george herbert walker bush and then served under george w bush, reagan and herbert walker bush over the end of the cold war and the two at the age of terror and of course the
5:20 am
central role colin powell played in front of united nations making the case that iraq had weapons of mass destruction. he also has of course a political legacy arguing increasingly during the obama administration and ultimately endorsing president obama that the republican party had strayed from its original principles and he became quite vocal about that at the end of his life. >> he was widely respected on both sides of the isle. as you know, that is very difficult to do. how was he able to do that do you think? >> you are right, gayle. he was one of a dwindling number of what we used to call wise men. those were people particularly coming out of the foreign policy arena. there used to be more of a consensus in american political life where republicans and democrats kind of believed on the same set of basic principles. that was largely because it was focused on common enemy of
5:21 am
russia during the cold war. that started to break down and partisanship became more part of our life, calcified partisanship, number of figures like colin powell, secretary gates, former secretary of defense. it starts as tony mentioned in his american story, his autobiography called my american journey. he was the embodiment of the american promise, that america is an idea no where you are born and what your skin color was, of course, the most important thing about his service as secretary of state was he was the first african- american secretary of state, you could grow up and go through public schools and public college and reach those levels in america. that was the foundation of his story and it's what makes his personal biography so central to what you are talking about,
5:22 am
gayle, which is the respect he received on both sides of the isle in addition of course to his service and the fact that he basically served in the top post, chairman of joint staff, national security adviser. he was in the thick of it for a very long part of his career. >> you mentioned he was highly decorated and highly respected, of course first african- american to serve secretary of state, how much of that has opened doors for people of color in those positions? >> well, i think it has. he was he was of course followed by another african-american secretary of state condoleezza rice. what powell talked about and always lived and talked about was the fact that the military was the place to look for those judged by attributes, that it was a colorblind institution and america when it was seeking in other institutions to
5:23 am
improve its record on race and improve the way americans were brought into the american dream that it should look to the military. in both the way he talked and in his life, he proved there were institutions in america where through your talent and skills and regardless of birth and skin color, you could rise. so he was both an advocate in his positions but also in the way he lived his life and in the way he talked about what was possible in america, for black americans or any americans of color. >> i have to say when i got the news, this one really hurts. if the just seemed to come out of the blue. i know he was 84 but i think many people don't know he was sick or certainly in the hospital. you interviewed him many times. i got to know him a little bit. he had a great sense of humor. that's what i will remember. you have interviewed him many times. what are your thoughts? what do you think we should all
5:24 am
remember? >> well, he had a very quick laugh and self deprecating humor. one of the stories, he was known in part for his lessons of leadership. we are familiar with people who do well in life, have his lessons of leadership. i will give you a couple. they were get mad and then get over it. one was it ain't as bad as you think. share credit, that's one of my favorites of course. we are in a political world now where sharing credit doesn't happen much. he told stories at his expense, made fun of himself. that attribute is pretty rare in public life from people who achieve great heights. >> thank you so much. we really appreciate you getting on the phone so quickly. i like get mad and get over it and share credit, lessons we can all use. our coverage will continue on
