10:12 pm
the information that we're hearing now are moms with regards to participation at demand that the toddler, bon diem unfair. with regards to the share that is expected. so we, it's a very difficult situation. the taliban so far have shown restrained relative to how quickly they would act historically. and we're hoping a political way comes out of it. dozens of women have taken to the streets in the western city of her out to demanding the right to work and pursue education under taliban leadership. since re taking control of the country last month, taliban leaders have insisted that they will honor women's rights. but protest or say they are uncertain about the future and women should have greater participation . and if you go on in other news, at least 22 people have been reported dead in the northeastern united states. after

10:14 pm
pouring into homes, trapping people in basement apartments, flooding the streets like you can see behind me here, seems like this. i can tell you are all over the northeast from maryland up to new york. and including here in new jersey, the rain came so hard and so fast that many were caught off guard to be fair. new york did issue a flash flood warning emergency on wednesday evening. but it is such an unusual event here. the 1st time such an alert was ever issued in new york. it really seemed to catch a lot of people, including emergency responders and officials, a bit off guard. the record was broken for rainfall in an overnight period overnight. more than 20 centimeters fell in new york central park . normally that's what new york would see for the entire month of september,
10:15 pm
not just in one day. and it broke a record that was set for the most rainfall in an hour record that was set literally a week ago, almost doubled the previous record. so it was a very intense storm. and really just calculating the damages in that, in the destruction. here it is, is what's been happening, it's, it's course not just loss of life, but the subway system in new york city was massively flooded. parts of it had to shut down, are still shut down as those areas attempt to drain and the damages are assessed. and likewise, this car behind me has been here for hours now. we've seen cars being towed from other areas, but there's just so much distraction and devastation that it's taking a while to get everywhere. yeah, i can well believe that. and then chris and the u. s. president spoke
10:16 pm
a little earlier and actually he linked the flooding that we're seeing and like you said, the record breaking rain to the wider climate change crisis. what did he say exactly? while he said this is more evidence that we have to confront the issue of climate change. you talked about not only what happened with hurricane ida, but the fires that are happening out west one the calendar fire. you know, the california areas has wildfires for as long as anyone can remember, but the gravity of them, the extent of them is just gotten so much more serious and much like the storms that we're seeing here in the eastern united states. the what's interesting is hurricane ida had already been downgraded hit in the south 3 days ago. they were still dealing with power outages and property damage is there when it made its way
