as you can see it's pretty dangerous. there is one house and one power line that ha hasn't been affectd by the typhoon. >> reporter: santa fe was the last to receive aid. when we first arrived. we were confronted by the shear hunger. the day turned tonight. more people came, more hungry mouths to feed. the old, the young, the desperate. >> now we need water and food. we need help. >> more aid is on its way. international ngos are planning convoys of supply. for now this is all they have. >> it has been very chaotic. it's more survival of the fittest. they want to eat. >> reporter: less than 20 people

it is a journey into the tapestry of millions of filipinos. sugar cane fields. banana plantations, village after village has been decimated. the degree of destruction vary. some villager have water but nearly every building has been wrecked. poor neighborhoods near the shoreline suffered worse. thousands of people lived in houses built with little more than palm leaves on bamboo stilts over water, a traditional style in the philippines. the incredible force of the winds knocked all the houses closest to the sea out. not many were injured or killed. on the other side of the island is the side that saw the 15-meter high storm surge.
>> reporter: this devastation is unprecedented. to get to the eastern side of the leyte island all we could see is kilometer to kilometer of utter devastation. the official death toll of 3 thus here, but this whole area was a crowded informal settlement of flimsily built homes. those who stayed didn't want to lose everything that they own. theyer many lost everything they owned and were injured or killed for their efforts. they had water but no electricity or telephone signal. young people are sitting, waiting for something to happen, watching to see when help will come. >> personally i'm not satisfied with what the government has done. because i heard there is a lot of aid that has come in but they have not synchronized getting it
out. >> reporter: many are waiting for the nightmare to pass. >> the philippines president is under increasing pressure. criticism is mounting over how his government responded to that disaster. we have reports that there is concern that aid may not be getting to the people who need it the most. >> reporter: work has been non-stop for days at this national government warehouse. typhoon victims pack relief goods in exchange for food. these bags are meant to last a family of five for three days. national officials say they serviced half of the families in leyte province. that's 1,600,000 people. these sacks ofries are now transported by the military from a national government warehouse to what is called a local government unit. these are the individual villages affected by typhoon
haiyan. the officials are then the ones to distribute it to the residents. but there is no guarantee even under a state of natural calamity that the aid reaches its ultimate destination. these survivors say they have yet to receive any help and allege food distribution has been colored by politics. >> the village chairman, the one who lost is from our area, 62-b. others were given numbers to receive aid. those from that area. and from that other area but not us. >> national government representatives make the rounds of typhoon effected areas. they expect to get damage assessments and an accounting of the aid already received. >> i personally go to the areas to check and verify. i do it personally. i do the distribution personally, and sometimes i also counter check. >> reporter: but there is always
a way to get around the system. and they are aware of the problems the national government has little more than trust to rely on. >> we would have to assume that they know where, who needs it most, and who needs it more quickly, and how to get it to them. that's an assumption that has worked in every single situation like this. remember, the philippines face 20 storms a year. and this is the way we have always worked in terms of coordinating with the local government. >> reporter: it might be time to change the system, especially in situations like this where many of the local officials are victims, too. al jazeera, leyte province. >> turning to other news, the taliban said it was behind a suicide-bombing that killed six today in kabul. it comes a week before tribal leaders meet to discuss the future of u.s. troops in afghanistan. >> reporter: it was the attack on footsteps where the country will debate the future of u.s.

of armed men trying to divert traffic. and the same thing was reflected inside the hospital where i also saw lots and lots of armed men running around totally overwhelmed. >> a week ago the government's called on people to take to the streets to pressure the military groups to disband. >> the departure of militia is a command not up for discussion. it's a necessary and urgent demand. >> seen the city council said there should an campaign of civil disobedience. what they didn't expect was such a violent response. security forces stayed out of it. but some people blame them for not doing enough. >> they started shooting, look, this is the blood of libyans as stated the national congress you traitors, to the government, you traitors. where is the army?

lots of people who have been here over the period that they were investigating, looking at photos, videos, all sorts of things coming together to build up this body of eched. now they have a few options. they're saying they could go to the international court of justice in the hague, or they could go to the international criminal court. at the moment these are just allegations, and they're going to be looking to see how they can progress and where they can take them to get some sort of justice that is what the freedom justice party itself would like to see for the people that they are trying to represent in egypt. >> meteorologist: we're bracing for it, and now it's hit. a storm system bringing significant snow into the cascade mountains of washington and oregon, and even into the rockies moving from the clearwaters and bitter roots of idaho and montana.
and that storm is going to keep going east. first i want to show what you looks like stephen's pass. snow coming down heavily this morning, and we've been tracking snow piling up, and we anticipate this storm to bring us a total of about a foot to a foot and a half of snow. you can see clearly caused problems on the roadway and a lot of folks sliding off from that winter snow that typically happens on the west side of the mountains. as you get to the east it gets a little more powdery. ski season and building up a base. that's what is going on in our mountain areas. driving across passes is a difficult thing. and in addition to that snow in the mountains we've had gusting winds blowing up to 25 mph for seattle. 20 for klamoth falls. and you see that snow moving into montana now.
now is that storm tracks to the eastern portion of the united states. we have a potential severe weather system building up. warm moist air coming from the southwest that will meet up with that cold front and we have potential for severe thunderstorms in a few areas. i'll go into more detail on that. >> thanks. and also ahead on al jazeera america. one university is considering fighting a rare strain of meningitis with the vaccine. the problem it's not approved by the fda. and a racist christmas? people in the netherlands protestining is called black pe.

festive period in a big way. angels, triples tree, but racism? meet black pete, he's the face of the dutch holiday that proceeds christmas. santa's little helper. more of a hindrance of those who say he does not belong in the modern age. many children paint thinks faces black to look like him. they have done since the 1820s. and race campaigners say that's where he firmly belongs. >> reporter: at the heart of this is a simple question. is black pete something fun. or is he, a symbol of racism, slavery, something that should not be around in the year 2013. what started out as a discussion evolved into a debate, and years one at that. the man leading the campaign said as a result he has received death threats.
>> if you have kids running home from school to scrub their bodies because they have been called black pete. >> black pete may live in the story books but his face has been fought out in the digital world. this is the tale of two campaigns. 13,000 members strong, compare that to the 2 million who say pete and politics should be kept completely separate. >> can you understand why some people think it is racist? >> no, i cannot under understand, no. it's a free country. we have so many people from outside. >> over the last years there are more problems. and i think people that live here who are black, i think

troops will stay in the country past 2014. aid is reaching remote communities. more than 1100 people are still missing. well, natural disasters are an all too common event in the philippines. just a few weeks ago an earthquake struck the whole island. we have more. >> the town is left ransacked. this is a 19th industry church, an treasure pulverized in seconds. 8,000 homes were destroyed. this did not happen during haiyan. a strong earthquake that killed more than 200 people. the counsels mayor said the shared frequency of these events is putting a strain on
government resources and ensure that building is done with an eye on the future. >> i believe if the buildings are made standardized, this will be able to resist earthquake and other forms of calamities like typhoon. >> reporter: nearby 50 families still live in makeshift tents. more expensive houses than the ones they lost seem beyond reach. >> we're going to build a small house not a big house because the big house is more of a risk if another earthquake happens. >> each end of town collapse bridges, a foot bridge was erected by locals in a couple of weeks. it was caused by seismic forces, but the consensus that the philippines face worsening weather-related disasters
because of its location on the western edge of a warming pacific ocean powering giant storms. of course it's not just homes that are at risk. it's bridges, roads, infrastructure, future proofing the philippines is going to be a near impossible task, and people increasingly are going to have to rely on resourcefulness like this. >> reporter: and there is plenty to go around. the market building was badly damaged so it's vendors have moved to the street happy to be doing business again and adapting to their changed word. world. two women are in the rui runninr chile's presidency. we look at former president michelle bachelet.
>> she is a single mother, atheist in south america's socially conservative country. yet michelle bachelet is so popular that she gave up her position to run for office again. no one had ever recognized us. no one cared about housewives until michelle came along and changed our lives. with pensions and other social programs. bachelet is soft spoken. some critics accuse her of talking socialism. this time she's promising to level the playing field by raising corporate taxes to pay for free public education and
health. not radical but gradual changes that must chileans seem to favor. >> they want it to be better distributed. they want to better distribute the benefits of economic growth. >> reporter: but her personal life has been marked by tragedy. first her father was imprisoned and died during the 1973 military coup. behind it's gates was once a secret interrogation and torture center where michelle and her mother were detained before they were sent into exile after the coup. this election falls on the 40th anniversary of that coup and it has led to a lot of soul searching, including for the presidential candidates. bachelet say it's been difficult to heal chile's wounds and her own. >> the thing i learned the most
is how we could--how could we never again live in a country who can be described as a country of enemies? >> reporter: her past has made her both determined and cautious. some say too cautious to really fight in a second term for the political and economic reforms she couldn't or wouldn't make in her first. al jazeera, santiago. >> now let's turn to evelyn matthei. she came to the campaign late but said she's determined to put up a good fight. we have that story. >> reporter: evelyn matthei oozes confidence. she vowed to continue the work of the outgoing right-wing president. more jobs, more equality, more health centers, more police. >> we're close to becoming a
developed country. we've grown. wages have gone up. we created jobs, but we have a huge debt. the inequality is a responsibility that we all share. >> evelyn matthei has been distances herself and singing along. she joined the campaign late as a compromised choice and has enemies even among her own ranks. some say she's tainted by chile's past. she has an impossible task ahead of her. opinion polls have her trailing between 14% and 20% of the vote since she was selected in july as the third choice candidate for the right, their first choice called out, suffering from depression. these supporters simply don't believe the polls. >> i believe she'll continue with with the work done by president pinera.
>> i believe in her. i believe in what she says. she has an iron fist, which is what this country needs. >> they seem prepared to ove overlook her links with government. her father, fernando, was a leading memberivity general i membership. she has been a staunch pinoshet supporter welcoming him home i in 2000 after his exile to england on human rights charges. evelyn matthei has been involved in a number of well publicized controversies with members of her own party. >> she's very aggressive style and characteristics that certain sectors of society find disagreeable. she's very independent of her own party with many ideas of her own. she's a very intelligent woman but was a bad choice being selected when chile was celebrating the 40th anniversary of the coup. >> reporter: the campaign rally was held in a small city south
of santiago, out of the spotlight and attracting just a few hundred people. it didn't look like a victory celebration. al jazeera, santiago. >> all right, earlier i spoke to an associate professor of latin america studies at nyu, and we started with who is most likely to win tomorrow's election. >> this is really not much of a race. michelle bachelet has led in the polls since she returned, and she's likely to win tomorrow. if she doesn't win tomorrow, she'll win in the run off. she's more than 20 points ahead. so it's unlikely that matthei stand a chance. it's only a question whether bachelet will win in the first round or in the run off. >> why is she so popular. she has talked about hiking packs taxes on businesses.
she does help to help students and the education there, overall why is she getting so much support in chile. >> chile has done well since democracy was restored in 1990. the economy has quadrupled, and poverty has decreased dramatically. wealth is concentrated in a the hands of a few, and bachelet said she'll redistrict wealth in and increase taxes on the wealthy in a gradual fashion, and that will give the government more resources to deliver more distribution. the question whether the distribution will actually takes place remains open, but people are voting for bachelet because they expect her to deliver, and to make the country more equal. that's her biggest challenge. in fact, she'll need to move to more equality. otherwise her high popularity will lead to disappointment.
>> spain's street cleaners reached a political deal to end the 11-day strike. garbage has been building on the streets. and emergency workers have started to clean up the streets as talks continue. the en pass is a result of the crisis that forced the government to have spending cuts. calling on world leaders stretch up on climate change. the climate change conference currently being held in poland, and asked to measure each nation's historying responsibility for global warming. when looking to cut future green house gas emissions. warsaw talks are aimed at working out a long-term deal to confront global warming. meanwhile, new target abandons japan's 25% reduction
goal from emission levels from the 1990s. japan generated a quarter of its power from nuclear energy but after that 2011 quake 50 reactors have been shut down. light, heating, cooling, communications, they're all linked into america's power grid. but this infrastructure is a a target for cyberattacks. >> reporter: this is the new frontier. cyberwarfare. cybersecurity experts say pow stations are increasingly the target. >> they are certainly much more sophisticated now and in the attention ten years or so earlier you didn't have so much attention on the power infrastructure. now there is a lot more attention on that infrastructure. >> reporter: 9 power grid is a
target because it touches so much of our lives. >> without the power grid we don't have emergency communications. we don't have routine communications. we don't have hospitals. we don't have heating, cooling, lighting. it's such a desperately large impact. >> last year the world's most valuable company, the 10 trillion-dollar saudi arabian company was attacked by a virus. >> we lost around 3,000 bcs and 2,000 servers. >> reporter: to protect against malicious outages companies are hiring specialists such as those at burr do you's homeland security institute, and they're carrying out exercises. 1800 power officials, regulators and homeland security experts gathered in secret to practice fending off a dreaded crooks a complex hybrid attack. >> you would have maybe a small power company transformer station that they will physically attack, blow up a
bomb, drive a truck into it, and cut power lines or knock a couple of tower down. at the same time that is happening you would be attacking the technology that the commander control systems to blind the companies as to what is going on. >> reporter: cyberattacks can be crippling and expensive. a series of attacks this year allegedly by north korea cost south korea nearly $800 million. >> reporter: power stations like this dot the landscape across canada, the u.s. and mexico. one effective attack could darken much of north america, and knock all of this out of commission. that is what happened in 2003 when a small power outage spread across the canadian province and eight u.s. states effecting 55 million people. a repeat could bring on a series of cascading power failures and security experts say widespread public panic. al jazeera, west lafayette, indiana.

aan aquarium has filed to have them. >> georgia aquarium has four. >> they are such a remarkable sees sees. >> now the aquarium wants to import 18 of the whales recently captured in russia. >> some would be kept here and the others would be split between five parks and aquariums in the u.s. >> we have to have these animals in our care moving toward to study them and so we can take that body of knowledge and apply it to the research we do on beluga whales in their natural habitat. >> reporter: they have been denied to import the whales. belugas are not listed as
endangered, with only 150,000 worldwide some sub set populations are. the federal agency says it determined five of the whales may have been nursing when captured. >> we have no evidence to support that claim. >> reporter: the georgia aquarium said its acting on behalf of the entire zoological community when it sued to import the whales. saying breeding is a key reason for their request. >> there is a real possibility if we don't take action now we could lose this population in human care. >> reporter: but that does not justify pulling more out of the wild and putting them in those conditions in which they don't thrive.
martha is a member of georgia animal rights and protection. and have been a vocal opponent to the georgia aquarium request. >> we don't need them in captivity to learn about them. we managed to learn about dinosaurs and learned to appreciate geology and archeological. >> reporter: noaa is now reviewing the complaint. if successful it will be the first permit t issued to import wild marine animals in 30 years. al jazeera, atlanta. >> mark is back with sports with that bullying story out of rutgers. >> reporter: with the jonathan martin scenario, nfl locker rooms being scrutinized and now

the mountain passes and power outages that stronger gusts can cause. we're seeing gusts popping up in st. louis, kansas city, shenandoah. and this strong line right is tracking right outside of minnesota and moving its way into wisconsin. so keep an eye to the sky and watch your local reports as we track those storms. in the meantime the winds will be pushing eastward. we have wind advisories popping up later tonight in the northeast. as we time out the stronger storms our initial ban comes close for midnight tonight. we'll be looking for the potential of severe storms iowa and missouri. then we get into tomorrow, any time between noon and 3:00 that there could be an isolated tornado with some of these storms developed. definitely hail and blustery
