7:02 pm
fearing dozens of people are dead. we believe our death toll from this event will exceed 50 kentuckians probably end up closer to $7200.00 loss lives as well as kentucky, several storms and tornadoes hit, at least for other states. everyone's kind of paying on the phones, the alerts. yeah, and they got down there 15 minutes for storm at the said it sounded loud, you know, deafening, almost in southern illinois, the roof partially collapsed in this warehouse for the joy and retailer, amazon trapping. doesn't the workers. families waited outside for updates. he was returning to the warehouse dropped and ran off. and i haven't heard from him since i'm worried sick. i just want to know if he's ok, we can't get a hold of anybody. no managers, nothing. i. we have no idea what's going on. most of the tornadoes hit overnight
7:03 pm
are speed and proximity hit him by the darkness and heavy rain. now forecasters predict more extreme weather may strike over the weekend with potential storms. heading east castillo priscilla young al jazeera. well, we are expecting the governor kentucky to come out and speak and make another official announcement at some stage, and that is the scene at the moment across may field. and we'll go that live as when it happens. let's go over to washington dc. well, our correspondent particle have joined the party. you've covered tornadoes in your career, across the americas. these sorts of incidents to create a whole deal of emergency health, both locally and from federal government. what's really the situation at the moment between the, the, the offices in charge? well, we've heard from president joe biden, he put out
7:04 pm
a tweet saying that is an unimaginable loss to lose family members like this. i just want to give you some perspective the us house tornadoes, therapy, the people who live in what we call tornado alley know about tornadoes. they take precautions. most homes have some sort of shelter that you can go to, but they don't expect it. in december we have like a tornado season here it's, you know, the spring march, april and it goes until the summer. but then the weather is supposed to be cold and to have tornadoes, you need a cold front and a heat wave. and we don't normally get those in december and we don't get storms like this one. this was huge. they think there were maybe as many as 30 tornadoes. and what's very unusual is how long they stayed on the ground. usually tornadoes, they come down, they stay on the ground, 10 minutes, they tend to hobble this. but this one, just one, many of these just stayed on the ground. we think as many as 300 kilometers for some of the storms. so that's why you're going to see such absolutely catastrophic
7:05 pm
damage. we don't know exactly how powerful they were, obviously, and 5 is the most powerful tornado. but in covering these in the past to have something like it entire concrete wall such as the amazon facility in illinois to have that forced down. that indicates that we're probably looking at at least an f 3. and that just shows just how basically wide and strong these storms are. so again, not expecting to december, not expecting this kind of storm. so what happens now? well, it happened, the probably the blessing in this is that they had a lot of warning people in his area has, in some cases as much as a half an hour warning. so it's going to, obviously, there's been investigations about what those companies are doing. having people so close to the outer edge of the wall, what they're, they're going to do now and day breaks and it starts to get really cold. busy they're going to focus on 1st and foremost, doing some sort of ascii. we've heard from the governor kentucky. he said they
7:06 pm
haven't really pulled out. he went out successfully since around 3 in the morning. that does not bode well, that they're going to be able to find more, but it is possible because we're looking at not just factories that have been leveled. we're talking about businesses and homes in that town of mayfield. it doesn't look like there's a whole lot left. it wasn't that big of a town to begin with, just about $10000.00 residents. so what they'll do now is bill or here and organized search parties much he's gonna hurricane. they'll go door to door to see if anyone needs be pulled from the rebel. then the federal government and the national guard are going to be mobilized. they are being mobilized as we speak for fema, the federal emergency management agency. their focus is going to be getting trailers down there because they're going to need places to live. there weren't any places to get heat when you see tornadoes like this because they're so big and so powerful . it's not like a hurricane. sorry. i have to tell you that we're going to get straight over to kentucky and listen to that. and the pastor who's making the address to the public about the situation so far, what it's done here and grace, county, and elsewhere,
7:07 pm
it is indescribable. the level of devastation is unlike anything i've ever seen. you see parts of industrial buildings, roofs, or sightings, intrigues. the trees are lucky enough to stand. huge metal poll then and half, if not broken, buildings that are no longer there. huge trucks that have been picked up and thrown and satellite far too many homes, that people were likely entirely devastated. this will be, i believe, the deadliest tornado system to ever run through kentucky. now earlier this morning at about 5 am, we were pretty sure that we would have, we would lose over 50 kentucky and now certain that that number is north of 70. it may in fact end up exceeding a 100 before the day is done,
7:08 pm
the damage is even worse. now that we have 1st light, a couple places have been hit incredibly hard. certainly mayfield here in grace county, but everywhere along the line of this tornado. that touched down and stayed down for 227 miles over 200 in kentucky has been severely and significantly impacted. i've been on the phone with now nearly every county judge in areas that have been impacted. we have pledged our full support. i have talked to the secretary of homeland security while i have been here, he has pledged his ball support and we're hearing that from every part of the federal administration. and from our us senators and from our congressman. kentucky is united today behind the people at western kentucky. we want to be here to help dig out, to help make rescues to help provide when people are suffering and then to help
7:09 pm
rebuild. this is not a one day thing. it says one state, and we will stand united to make sure that we can lift our families back up. but please know that there are a lot of families that need your prayers. prayers that somebody may be found or prayers to help them through the grieving process. dolphin springs up the road, also hit incredibly hard. that's where i'll be headed next. i want to call on a number of people today to give you an idea of different things that we're doing. i can tell you that the state of emergency was put into place last night before midnight. the national guard is deployed and will be in communities very shortly and not is now going to be all minute. we need more individuals in the field. we're going to hear from our adjutant general, and in a minute the 1st i want to turn it over to just the county judge here, who has been working really hard. and then we'll hear from the mayor. and then
7:10 pm
we'll move to emergency management. national guard will hear from the transportation cabinet and what they're doing. state police and others judge that you had the governor and the best of kentucky, really giving a stock assessment of the damage across the states. as these tornadoes hit, the particle anal corresponded in washington was listening again. he thinks that at the moment the death toll is 50 going on 70 may reach a 100. by the end of the day, a real least star assessment of the very large task of rescue and recovery. exactly, and that's just one state. we're talking about arkansas, illinois, kentucky, missouri, and tennessee. and so we're seeing in arkansas and nursing home was head and we believe there fatalities there. obviously the amazon facility in southwestern illinois that they lost their roof. and as i mentioned that the entire concrete
7:11 pm
wall collapse in on people. so expect the desk told to climb quite a bit more than that because we're just, he's just talking about kentucky. we're talking about more than about 321 kilometers worth of damage. and so what happens after a tornado passes is the cold front comes in, so this is going to make the rescue even a little bit harder. well, rescuers are said is in some places the damage is just so severe and there's power lines, and everything is so precarious that they're having trouble and they're cautious to try and move in to try and get those people out. so in the 1st couple of days of a tornado, that's going to be the focus. the national guard is coming in. you heard the governor say they're going to bring in more national guard. their focus is going to be finding anybody who's still alive and finding the bodies and bringing them out obviously so people can be notified. the next step is going to be trying to get them. housing. fema has these mobile trailers that are stationed all over the country. usually in a hurricane they know it's coming in so they are able to pre position it because
7:12 pm
they know days in advance. in this case they do baby a half an hour before, so it might take a little bit longer for those fema trailers to get there, but they're going to need a lot of housing in the meantime, what you'll see the local departments do is we'll try to find any hotels that are still standing. for example, this are area in kentucky where the governor was speaking mayfair. there is not a lot of big hospitals around there, so they're gonna have to worry about how do you get people to the hospitals because it's again, it's not near by the rural area, the small town. so this is going to take months, years, towns in after the situations in a lot of cases they really have to sit down and decide if they even want to rebuild . if that's been something that's feasible because it's going to be so incredibly costly. when you look at the extent of the damage, but again, if you just look at the video that we're starting to see now, all indications are that this was a very powerful set of tornadoes, possibly as many as 30 that just stayed on the ground in december it's,
7:13 pm
it has happened but not like this. and as you heard the governor say, this is likely going to be the worst outbreak of tornadoes they've ever had. and it's not in tornado season. so a lot of people weren't expecting that. i can tell you you do expected and tornado season, sort of like you watch the weather a little bit more closely. you have the back of your mind. ok if i'm out, where do i go if a tornadoes coming, cuz i won't have that much time. which stores do i know has like a secured area or a bunker type of thing. it is very much in your mind when you live in these areas, but you sort of let your guard down because it's december, it's not supposed to have hot and cold front of this magnitude, but the silver lining, as it was mentioned before, the governor speaking is they did have noticed most of the really deadly tornadoes happened when in the middle of the night when people are asleep and they don't hear the alerts. these people were still awake, most likely. the people in the factory just started the night shift, so they had
7:14 pm
a warning they had time. but again, with a storm like this, the devastation is just going to be pretty much hard to imagine. putting a line thanks very much for the up. they will continue to monitor events in kentucky because victor, john seni, is a professor of meteorology at northern illinois university. he told me that just as the governor of kentucky, i just stated, the devastation is the worst. in recent history, we are probably looking at one of the most historic tornadoes in united states history. you have to go all the way back to march 18th. 1925. the infamous tri state tornado. that crossed 3 states. the terrain last night crossed 4 states had started in arkansas, clipped portions of missouri, tennessee, and probably did its most prolific damage in kentucky as we just heard with, with potentially upwards of over 50 fatalities. this path length, i believe, when it's all said and done, we're waiting for the numbers to come in. will be
7:15 pm
a near 400 kilometer path length and very likely that this tornado will be rated violence, which means e f, or e, f 5. i'm expecting. winds tiguan speeds to be well over 200 miles per hour with this particular tornado. pinpointing. i think you know, more than a couple days in advance where we're going to experience these advance is, is, is extremely challenging a couple of days in advance. the storm prediction center, which is the agency task, was forecasting severe weather here in the united states, had convective outlooks, which basically means, you know, heads up, the environment might be favorable. we had tornado watches out hours in advance last night, and the warnings which means you know, the tornado has been spotted or detected by radar. those were out in some cases, well over 30 minutes in advance before the tornado says. on the days of the news now until the diplomat some g 7 countries have urged to show unity against global aggressors as they met in the u. k. city of liverpool, british foreign secretary,
7:16 pm
las truss made special mention of tensions with russia, china and wrong. but other classic issues include k with 19 vaccines and dealing with an ongoing cost of the pandemic on economies where we challenged zend of a pool. he says russia has been the main focus of the talks amongst all the issues . and the threats that the delegates have been talking about here. renee include china, wrong nuclear ambitions cove. it of course, but also other crises like what's going on a knee and mom and none have dominates to think like the issue of russia or in the real fear amongst the foreign ministers gathered. that it might perhaps be about a lot, some sort of evasion once again into ukraine and live trust i think is trying to position herself as a kind of unifier of the free. well, that's a she might see it. and she has said that we have to deter russia from taking that course of action. i being very clear will be
7:17 pm
a strategic mistake for russia to do that. and what the g 7 meeting is about this weekend is a show of unity amongst all like minded nations. but i've to say uniting the free world is easier said than done. and an example of that is the north stream to gas pipeline projects, which is between russia and germany. now. interesting, lee, germany's new foreign minister from the green party adelina is against the north stream to pipeline project. but her boss from the social democrat party of charles is more in favor of it, and germany is not yet willing to say as the u. s. and the u. k. would like it to that it will threaten russia with pulling the north street into pipeline. if it went into ukraine, so that's the kind of example of how yes these countries may be friends, but they don't always agree. as an abraham race, he says around is serious about the latest round of negotiations to revive the 2015
7:18 pm
nuclear deal. and the full powers, a willing to release sanctions and agreement can be reached. the television report, those common talks go on in vienna. now the head of the international atomic energy agency has been speaking to our correspondent dosage of ours in vienna. rafael grossi outlines the contentious issue under discussion. well, it was a wide ranging discussion. we specifically talks about the role of the i, e a. but then we of course, talked about this, j. c, p. o, a and raphael grossi was very much adamant that it is a deal that is very, very important and critical for their work. they are not involved in the politics of this nuclear deal. they just want to verify what has been agreed to. he also talks about the issues that remained with iran. he admitted that iran is one of the, the country that has the most is fractions of nuclear program in the world. but despite that, he said there are still issues that they are discussing with iran. that is
7:19 pm
a cause for concern for the i e a. and this is what he had to say, but that specific, those issues the ages he and iran are trying to come to an agreement on or basically 2 things. one is the capability or the ability of the agency to return to one facility, one specific facility in iran, where we need to reinstall cameras that need to be there. and it has been difficult to do this. so we have been talking about these and the other thing is how to address a number of issues which need to be clarified. the agency found traces of nuclear material in places that had not been declared before they facility he's talking about. there is cat shuts out just outside of her on it's a workshop that produce a central future for wrong nuclear program. and when you said that the, the i e, a had 4 cameras in that facility. and in june,
7:20 pm
there was an act of sabotage which destroyed one of those cameras and they blame israel for that. they said at that time that they are going to take all 4 cameras offline until there is a new investigation. and there is some kind of a statement issued by the united nations and the idea until that happens, the revenues are not willing to open up. again, inspections to that workshop. and the director general mentioned that this is one of the points of contention because they cannot determine what is happening in iran nuclear program. if they don't know where the center features are going and how many are actually being made. and you can watch dosage of always fall into the you with the i. e h e raphael grossi on top 12 there. at 830 gmc on sunday. now palestinians have been voting to choose representatives and more than a $150.00 village councils across the occupied west bank. but this time it's different. the boat isn't going to deliver on what palestinians really want the day for him reports now from our mazata alex earlier,
7:21 pm
my la local council elections have been usually held on time relatively every 4 years. we have local council elections and different cities and villages all across the occupied to us bank. but what palestinians say they want is general elections. they want to be able to choose the political leaders, representatives. it's 15 years past 10 years of last voted for parliament that has since became an active after the internal split between france and how massive enjoining me here to talk more about those elections. is that a cell copy be the political science professor at the university doctor? we are holding these municipal elections now, how political are they? they're not mainly political motives for choosing candidates, not political affiliation, mainly it has to do with so many affiliation. it has to do with the reputation of
7:22 pm
the candidate. that's why it's results are not indicators on any political balance of power. but it's a reminder for palestinians that they haven't voted for general elections. do you see us getting any closer to that? it is good, but it's not good enough. it for issues and needs related to services of municipalities. but it does not serve the fact that we do not have. we did not have political elections neither for the be a lot situations nor the for the institutions for more than 13 or 14 years. this election reminds us of the need for political inaction that the people badly in need of. what do you think the main issues that pasting is want? why would they want to vote in general election? they want to renew the political leadership. they want to have more
7:23 pm
participation in the political system through election. they want to hold the political elliott accountable for whatever successes or failures they have in the last period. and more important, they want to bridge the gap between the public and the political elite in general. thank you so much. and palestinians were so close at having those general elections . but paul, city and president bass has postponed them 6 months ago. and this is part of the reason why i'm out of local to these municipal elections. they say they want these long delayed general and presidential elections held. now one's been stepped up for the fight as hiding in the thick forests of eastern congo soldiers from uganda. zombie recently crossed into the democratic republic of congo to track down the allied democratic forces. the joint military operations as early successes include
