headquarters here in denver, also coming up. britain house, the g seven's top diplomats telling them to stand up against global aggressors. as they discuss russia's military buildup on ukraine's border. iran's president says he's serious about reviving the nuclear deal, but insist that us sanctions must go 1st. a new gun laws, an indian administered gosh, me were threatening the tradition of hand crafted firearms. ah, welcome to the prego. we begin in the us where a series of tornadoes and severe storms has brought catastrophic damage and deaths across 6 states. president joe biden has called it an unimaginable tragedy. the governor of kentucky, the worst here it says, more than 70 people have died in his state, and the death toll could be much higher. katia lopez had a on reports,
8:02 pm
tornadoes rip to entire neighborhoods and can causing widespread damage. one of the towns badly hit as mayfield, where emergency crews are sifting through flat and holes. the governor has declared an emergency fearing dozens of people, possibly a 100 or dead. you say parts of industrial buildings, roofs, or sightings, entries trees are lucky enough to stand huge metal polls then and half, if not broken, buildings that are no longer there. huge trucks that have been picked up and thrown . and satellite bar to many homes. the people were likely and entirely devastated 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. it said it sounded
8:03 pm
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, 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, puffy gall have joined us now lie from our washington bureau. i shall undone, struck by the images, which is why i was slightly hesitant. patsy, as we continued to look at them, it's an unpredictable scenario, uttered
8:04 pm
a very unfortunate time of the year. a very unusual time of the year when it comes to tornadoes for the people who live in tornado alley. as it's known, they know that they need to be on the lookout fortune needed for tornadoes for out, for march, till about june and july. after that you kind of let your guard down because this is extremely rare. it's supposed to be cold in that part of the country, but what we are seeing is the sort of a heat wave and a cold for coming in. hence the storms was also really unusual about the storms is how long they stayed on the ground. usually when you cover tornado, you can see them coming and you know that they're going to come down and then they're going to bounce back up in the. and that's, that's why they're so unpredictable. that's why sometimes you'll see one house here is perfectly fine and the next 12 doors down is actually devastated and gone this, these tornadoes and we think there maybe as many as 30 of them seem to just get down and stay down causing destruction for up to 300 kilometers and again, we've seen tornadoes like that,
8:05 pm
but they're very unusual. and also just how powerful these were. if you, you can pretty much withstand an f one tornado, which is the lowest. this is the damage that i've seen. i think they're probably going to come out and say these were at least 4 or the highest and 5 with wind up to 200 miles per hour. this is devastating. what we're seeing is it's not just the candle factory and mayfield where 110 people went in for the night shift and they think as many as 70 people didn't make it out. they haven't had a successful rescue, meaning they haven't found a living person since around 3 am. and it's now about noon. the governor, very emotional, as he talked about it. he said, looking at the scene, it's amazing that anyone got out. so what we're seeing now, because it's not just kentucky kentucky, seems to be about the hardest hit, but it's arkansas, illinois, and also missouri and tennessee. the one thing is they did have warning, we think in some cases up there half an hour, which is likely it's going to have saved a lot of lives. also, it happened before. most people were in bed. that is usually when tornadoes are the
8:06 pm
deadliest because they can't here the warnings so they can't get to the shelter. and homes and businesses in this part of the country tend to have tornado shelters where you can safely stay inside. so what's happening now is the national guards been called up, we heard from some of the fire chiefs and the police chiefs in the area. they're having a problem because their facilities were completely wiped out. so what you're going to see now is the police that can function the fire department that can function the national guards are going to go door to door. try to see if anybody is still alive and can be rescued. that's going to take some time in the meantime, president joe biden has directed the federal emergency management agency to start getting the equipment into that area. first thing they're gonna need, they're gonna need like heavy equipment that can lift up all of that debris. more than that they're going to need housing. fema has trailers that people can live in that provide them with water and heat. normally in a natural disaster such as a hurricane fema knows hey, this is coming. we've got days, they put those,
8:07 pm
those trailers on trucks and they get them to a staging area. tornado. that's going to take a little bit more time for them to ramp up. they have these equipment, basically staged all across the country. so what they're going to be doing in the next hours coming days is tried to search as much as they can into that area. busy because it's going to get cold and they're not going to have water, and they're not going to have communications unless the government steps into help for the update. thanks so much practical. have for us in washington bureau 15 seni, his professor, meteorology at northern. in the universe. you know, he says 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 and started in arkansas, clipped portions of missouri, tennessee, and probably did its most prolific damage in kentucky as we just heard with,
8:08 pm
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 a near 400 kilometer path length and very likely that this torina will be rated violence, which means e f, or e, f 5. i'm expecting winds peak wind 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 outlook, 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 top,
8:09 pm
diplomats from g 7 countries have been urged to show unity against global aggressors as they meet in the u. k. city of liverpool, british foreign secretary list trust, made specific mention of tensions with russia, china and iran, but other pressing issues include, including covered 19 vaccines and dealing with the ongoing cost of the pandemic on the agenda. the g 7 countries as well, leading democracies and economies need to come together to advance the front as a freedom, we need to show a positive, proactive approach in making ourselves safer, more competitive, better able to stand up for the values. we believe it. we need to defend ourselves against the growing threats from hostile actors. and we need to come together strongly to stand up to aggressors who are seeking to limit the bounds of freedom and democracy. while rowing challenges, as in liverpool,

8:11 pm
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 shells 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 nord stream to 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 abraham racy says, iran is serious about the latest round of negotiations to revive the 2015 nuclear deal. and it will, powers are willing to remove sanctions that agreement can be reached through television, reported those comments says tools go on in vienna. now the head of the international

8:14 pm
a statement issued by the united nations and the i e. until that happens, the ranges 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 central features are going and how many are actually being made. and you can watch dosage of always fall into the with the i a e h e raphael grossi on top 120830 gmc on sunday. still had here on out. there is china spying on its neighbors? the chinese, they know, but the philippines and others are worried. the whole story coming up. and we look at why subgroups in one south african province of pushing the independence stories after the break. ah,

8:26 pm
excluded from the system. they never get the government, they vote for and, and the consequences of that are all quite significant because the so africa is being badly managed and running to the ground. the people of the western cape are then suffering the consequences of a government. they didn't elect. i'd want they can remove the ballot box. south africa is made up of 9 provinces. 8 of them are governed by the african national congress. the opposition party, the democratic alliance has run the western cape since 1999. all the parties not supported the call for secession. it has pushed for a federal system. the cape independence party says recent polls suggest 58 percent of western cape voters. support the move for cape independence. but that fick has been disputed. those opposed to the idea, say it's racially motivated and a script against the largely mixed race and black, often poorer communities in a province where they will prosperous white's minority. i cannot support anything which seeks to create a forks that would have been efficiencies of
