and it's border. i'm devin ash, with board. we've reached the semifinals at the fee for our cap, where to put their place in saturday. find the last name trauma against egypt. stadium 974. ah, us president joe biden has arrived in kentucky. the was defective state by fridays, devastating tornadoes, at least 88 people have been killed, more than a 100. a still missing across 6 states. biden is expected to meet some of the victims and state officials. tens of thousands of people without power, as volunteers and emergency workers clear the debris. and in illinois and investigation is underway into the collapse of an amazon warehouse that killed at
least 6 people will speak to john henry, who's outside that amazon warehouse in edwards fill in a noise shortly. but 1st, let's head over to heidi joe castro. she's in mayfield, kentucky. so how is the biden visit, unraveling family. the president has already done an aerial tour of may field kentucky where i stand now and from the sky. the level of destruction is just impressive. you can see it here on the ground to home. utterly got it is not flattened. it's amazing. the things that do survive, though there's still potted flowers, standing inside some of the shells of these homes. there are 74 concerned can confirmed a death in kentucky for people having died inside of a nearby factory as they were at work and allegations from some of those workers are surfacing saying that bosses there would not allow workers to leave before the
storm with christmas approaching worker as of the mayfield consumer products candle factory were rushing to fill holiday orders, despite fridays, ominous skies. 20 year old elijah johnson says he felt nervous when he clocked in for his shift. and worse, after a tornado alarm sounded an early warning. the 1st alarm came all around saving going on, eighty's, and we could have been gone. we could have been gone. everybody can i guarantee you a good have been less people that died at the facility, then what it was. if people would let them go, he says he and 14 other workers asked a manager if they could leave. we went to and we were like, we need to leave me and we got kids and stuff at the house. we got, we got to take care. our family and he was like, well, you can leave what you going to be terminated and was like what? even with the weather like this. and he'll say, yes, we've been with the weather like, just going to be terminated when the 2nd tornado alarm sounded about an hour later,
the $110.00 workers present or directed into a hallway and told to brace. then with a roar, everything came crashing down. the walls, the ceiling, johnson found himself trapped in debris. then came the screen. it was a security officer. it was on my leg and grab my leg. a cable say it helped me help help. and i couldn't help by the time because i was stuck myself. it was touching my leg i 1st and they just stuck. a female supervisor was pinned with her feet against a collapsed wall. johnson says she pushed the wall back, allowing him to escape through a narrow opening. so when i made it out, when i made it out, she was still down there, holding up the wall. kentucky governor has pledged to investigate whether the company was negligent in the way that handled the storms. but he emphasized the state has not verified the workers allegations, representative for the candles factory says workers were not pressured to stay. if
we believe that we could do anything differently on one side, of course, i think all of us would do something differently. this is such a gamble to say leave, you know, to the last thing you do says don't get in your car, you know, that's what experts say more than a 100 people remain missing in kentucky and in surrounding states. and it's feared the death toll will rise. johnson says after emerging from the collapse factory, he could think of only one thing. i thought a crime because i thought my brain is at all my phrases that he's still not sure of the woman he credits with saving his life survived. and there have been so many other stories of heroism as people haven't responding to these tornadoes, neighbors pulling each other out of the rubble. stranger stopping by to see if there was anything that these people who lost their home need. in fact, yesterday, family, just spending a few moments with a 9 year old boy and his grandmother who were devastated by the last the losses
that they have suffered. we had a person come by a man who just gave this child a bicycle that child's face just lit up. and then a few minutes later someone else came by with a brand new generator for the family. so it's the small moments that people are holding on to the okay, thanks so much. hi, the joe castro there. let's take this over now to john henderson. he's in edward's phil illinois, people trying to pick up the pieces that to amid an investigation as to what happened at that amazon warehouse. right? that's right, sammy, the federal, occupational safety and health administration is looking into whether amazon violated any worker safety rules as it prepared in the short time it had for this tornado to sweep through. what we do now is that they got alerts between $8.06 p. m,
that a tornado might be coming toward them. they told employees to hunker down in a designated tornado. shelter it then that tornado just 11 minutes later, at 827. touched on in the parking lot back there and swept through the front of that building. the designated tornado shelter was back farther in the building and was harden with concrete, but not all of the workers could make it. their amazon has previously had no phone policy, but in this case it had allowed people to have phones because it covered and some of them use them to call home. one of them was a man named jordan cope. he told his sister he was going to go out and warn the other workers about the coming tornado. those you might be outside and didn't hear the warning. he was among those who were killed and don't know they always. so the construction cranes out and about behind you, how is the reconstruction effort going after i did your nato swept through the field right in front of that building. apparently knocking
down some power line. so power went out there was a, a phone, a cell tower that was knocked down as well. so some people weren't able to communicate for a while. but really this was a very limited storm of the series of storms that sweat through this whole region. 6 states from mississippi all the way up here to joy. some of them were as long as 330 kilometers raking up half through the ground. this one was very small. you can see it just touched down to that parking lot struck that building. and then went up into the air again. it was just unfortunate for the workers in this particular plan that is where it was located, otherwise, there seems to be very little damage up here. all right, thanks so much john henderson. now there's been a break through those iraq nuclear talks in vienna. iran, the foreign minister says un cameras will be allowed to film at a sensitive fight. the issue has been a sticking point during discussions to revive the landmark nuclear deal. and in
2015 but above last night we reached a good agreement with the i a that could address some of the alleged concerns about who runs peaceful nuclear program. and lead to continued mutual cooperation with the a 2 series of texts of being discussed in vienna. the 1st as a result of 6 rounds of talks. at the same time, other parties have agreed to have iran's newly proposed texts on the table. so as to achieve single, concise text from discussions and combination of all of these will the agreement has to do with iran college complex, which makes centrifuges. they are used to enrich uranium. one of the cameras belonging to the international atomic energy agency at the site was damaged in june . iran blamed israel for what it called a sabotage attack to her and then removed all the cameras and their footage and hasn't let the agency replace them angering the u. s and signatories to the 2015
nuclear deal. and september the i a, a called for to her on to find the missing footage and replace all the cameras correspondent, dosage of our is been following developments from vienna. hey, are on is now in a position to tell the parties that are here in vienna negotiating how to return to that nuclear deal, that it's done, everything they've asked of them. that's been asked of them by the international atomic energy agency. the i. e. a said that since june, they have not been able to access for cameras that they had at this workshop in carriage, which produces centrifuges for iran's nuclear program. they ran in said there was a sabotage attack on june 20th and damage one of the cameras. and since then, they've taken all for offline since then for nearly 6 months now the i e, a director general has been trying to get the iranians to allow i e to replace those cameras. now, iranians were asking the agency to condemn the attack,
and that is what's happened now after this all this time. the agency has finally acknowledged that this was an act of sabotage and the radiance of certified will will allow you to replace those cameras. but there is a point that is going to be important here, and that is that the video that they will be recording of everything that happens in that workshop will not be handed over to the agency as is procedure. now since february of earlier this year, a, the rain in parliament passed the law that iran will reduce his commitment to the agency because a nuclear scientist, moss, and barclays, other was assassinated in november of last year. they said these acts of sabotage are aimed at trying to get iran to come to the negotiating table in a weaker position. and they would, they have actually managed to do is really put iran in a much stronger position according to the officials there. so now the main issue here has been that there was a lack of access, according to this agency and carriage at this facility was one of the sticking
points that was stalling, these nuclear talks. now we reach a point where i, we will see really what the main issues are if there are any other than the technical aspects of returning to the j. c. p. away until now, all the parties were saying, including the americans that to the news were not being forthright with giving the right amount of access to the nuclear agency, which polices the nuclear deal of 2015. so now with this announcement which was made in terror on it, we will expect to be some kind of movement along these talks, which resumed after a 5 month break on november 29th. due to the fact that there was a new administration in teheran, after abraham bracy was elected in june. so now we're going to see in the coming days, what this means for the negotiations moving forward. and certainly, the iranians will not be in a position to say, we have given you everything you've asked for. now it's time for you to do the same

come back here watching out. is there a time to recap? the headline us president joe biden is touring. the areas was affected by friday, devastating tornadoes in kentucky, states, and in illinois and investigation is underway and the collapse of an amazon warehouse that kills at least 6 people. iran, the foreign minister says un cameras will be allowed to film as a sensitive nuclear side. the issue had been a sticking point during negotiations in vienna to revive the 2015 landmark agreement. the ukranian president is meeting you leaders in brussels that the eastern partnership summit will also meet with the french president and german chancellor to discuss the rising tensions with russia. well, back now to our top story that devastating tornadoes in the us. steve clements is editor at large at the hill. he joins us from washington, dc via skype. good, happy with us. so how do you think americans are viewing biden's handling of the
tornado disaster so far? well, i think so far so good in the sense that they see a president who is really good at talking about grief. i mean, he's had so much personal grief in his own family that when, you know people are lost, it's one of the areas that joe biden is, is, you know, often lauded that he can connect with real people in their time of great stress. so i think that's going pretty well. i think, however, you know, he's in kentucky which is a state that supported donald trump. overwhelmingly, only one of the kentucky came to congressional delegation traveled with him or a republican, but only one congressman to get the sort of glimpses of partisanship in the midst of tragedy. and we don't know, i mean, president barton has not been able to overcome all of that, but i think he's, he's, you know, from the rest of us are watching what's going on. you know, i think the president is saying and doing the right things. you think now in america a lot of things highly politicized. did you think this will help turnaround.
