according to the local government, what they are worried about is because communication lines are down, that some of those rescues - those supposed to go there, might not get there in time. the government is saying that they are grateful that, in fact, it's a national holiday. some school buildings collapsed, there were no students inside and those provinces have been spared. >> thank you for your report. >> it has been a rocky night across the northern plains, we have another storm system going through. if you remember a little over a week ago there was one storm system that brought over 4 feet of snow to the western part of south dakota. this evening we are seeing snow from another system.
we don't expect to see that much snow - probably about 16 inches when it's all said and done. you can see the pink and the blue, the pink indicating a mix, the blue the snow, as well as this here going through parts of kansas. we had thunder storm watches out. you can see the line of thunder storms is moving across parts of kansas and nebraska. this will go on all night. you may want to keep on your radios. there could be a bit of damage in terms of wind and hail in many locations and icy roads to the north. >> thank you. we are starting to get a look at the damage left behind by the cyclone that slammed into india's eastern coast. cyclone phailan caused flooding, destroying tens of thousands of homes. officials say 25 died. they credit - they think it could have been more had it not been for the massive evacuation effort that moved nearly a million people out of one of

center for disease control are not working. private companies are producing flu vak scenes, but the cdc is not publishing a weekly flu report and is cutting down on flu surveillance. here to talk about how the flu season could be affected by the shutdown is professor corey. tell us about specifically the impact that this shutdown could have on flue season. >> i tell you, i have never been so proud and frustrated to be an american. people don't realise what the center for disease control and prevention do every day - they are about prevention and civiling what is going on with -- sur veiling what is going on with our viruses around the country. a simple scenario - if there's a pandemic a third of the people working there will be able to
work. that doesn't make me feel safe. i don't think the american public should be safe. we are not trying to fear monninger. let meet get specifics about this. monitor and tracking. how does that help to prevent the spread of flu, or does it? >> let's think about this. remember a couple of years ago we had the h1 n 1 shot. when the regular flu vac een was produced, we didn't know about h1 n 1 at the time. because of the surveillance we got everything together and offered a shot to cover h1 n 1. i was on the board that publy sissed this. without the surveillance, the vak seen would never have been produced or saved all those lives. >> when we point on the surveillance of the flu, and put it on the program or it gets out on the website, it raises awareness of the flu, and people
go out and get the vak een, right. >> no one likes the flu vak seen. the only thing that makes you get it is the steadfast commercials saying, "go get the flu shot". people think they get the flu from the flu shot. you cannot get the flu from the flu shot. you feel bad, but that is not the flu. the flu is two weeks on your back, 106 fever and possibly death. 25,000 a year in the united states die from flu, from 20,000 to 30,000. people need to take this seriously. >> is it possible at all because of the shutdown there's not going to be as much flu vak een available, or do people have difficulty getting it. >> the cdc doesn't distribute the lion share of the vak seen, private manufacturers make the vak een, the cdc has a part in
it. it will be available, and should be in the same quantity. people won't have the impetus to go out and get the flu vak seen without education. every year we go out and educate people, because they don't get it that that many people die every year. we have to remember in 1920 - between 1918 and 1920 $50 million people decide in the world from the same flu we have today, and a million in the united states, in that one year. same flu. >> you have been educating people tonight. good to see you. thank for joining us. >> in sepah gal tribe heelers have just as much report as doctors if not more. many parents are so poor they choose the healers over proper medical care. the president came up with an idea - free medical care for children under five. >> protecting a child from harm

right care. >> the senegalese government is offering free health insurance for everyone under five years of age. >> emergency care, vak sinations and doctor's visits are paid for by the state. rm. >> without a proper health care system the country will not develop. it's important to move forth universal health care for all. >> inspired by president obama's health care reform, the government formed it maki care after the former president. his government subsidised health insurance, encouraging low-income insurers to take it out. the state is spending $10 million to fund the reform. >> translation: this is not enough. politicians need to explain why getting health insurance is in everyone's interest. >> plans are to scale up the program to include adults by 2014. i asked if it is feared that could push the malibu out of
business. >> he is not worried, believing health care reforms are governed by spirits. >> washington state is the battle ground in the continuing fight over genetic engineering and the food weed. citizens initiative is on the ballot, requiring clear labelling on most, but not all food containing genetically engineered ingredients. a contentious big-money campaign is under way. >> the food fight brought in there 23 million campaign dollars, $18 million of that on the no side. >> food regulations conflict with standards, making no sense. >> it's six, not costing a dime. >>. all: not a time. >> we have a right to know if food is genetically engineered. >> it's about product labelling and genetics engineering - which
is complicated. most food sold in washington would have to be labelled as genetically engineered. and here is what that means - any foodproduced from an organism or organisms through which the... >> while i read here is what the two sides say the campaign is about. >> you may look for a certain ingredient. i may look for another. it's about what information i need to make the best choice for myself at the grocery store. >> it provides ipp accurate, scint and inaccurate information. it will increase the cost of groceries by $450. >> ..such as microinjection, mcrae... >> here is what each side says about the other. >> are they lying to the public? >> they are misleading the government. >> they are ridiculous and lying on tv.

ceiling, and all by the end of the week. here is con gregsal correspondent libby casey with more. >> progress emerging on capitol hill. we have the broad outline of a deal. it would raise the debt ceiling into february and get the government back up and running through mid january. it could give both republicans and democrats things they want, minor changes to the federal health care law and calls for a group of congressional leaders to get together and work on deficit issues over the next couple of months. if the deal can be reached, it's about time. the american government has pretty much had it with washington. a new poll shows everyone coming out a loser. president obama fared the best. he still got a 53% disapproval rating. republicans - only a fifth of americans appreciate their tactics and techniques.

he's raised the debt limit five times, this is the sixth. the amount borrowed has gone up 50% and he hopes to raise the limit by another trillion. the u.s. started with less than a trillion of debt in 1980. it soared over the past three decades, approaching $17 trillion in debt today, and more money needs to be borrowed. every time the debt ceiling is raised the government spends more, and that limit is met and often soon exceeded. >> social security, cost of living increases will be the smallest in 40 years. according to an analysis by the associated press the increase will be 1.5%. automatic increases were adopted in 1975. the government was scheduled to announce the annual cost of living raised wednesday. it may be delayed by the
