city the rain is falling very heavily and the temperature has dropped significantly that makes the job of the rescuers who deep inside the day every of the school they can see highlighted over my shoulder all the more difficult now they're trying to get to a twelve year old girl on wednesday so they asked her to acknowledge that we were there they did that then sent in a dog to ensure that she was alive that was confirmed that that is the case and then they started making their way towards her they have now discovered that there are three other children and that general area so what they're trying to do is essentially create a place where they can let some of the wreckage off the twelve year old girl whose name is free to sophia to make sure that she can be free and then they will try and find the other three children and that you know the big problem for the parents who waiting for news of course is that they will be pleased that three more children have been fired but at this stage we don't know whether. the the rescuers really

president addressed diplomats at the u.n. has promised there'd be no changes to the deal to curb his country's nuclear program in exchange for sanctions relief mike hanna is following developments from the u.n. the iranian president arrives to address the general assembly well aware that president trump strident criticism of the iran nuclear deal is rejected by the majority of u.n. members i gather. it would be a great pity if this agreement were to be destroyed by road newcomers to the world of politics the world will have lost a great opportunity by violating its international commitments the new u.s. administration only destroys its own credibility and undermines confidence in negotiating with it or accepting its word of promise. other signatories to the deal have cautioned president trump against unilaterally withdrawing from it said the closest one is needed this is an agreement that the u.s. pushed for i think it's the best possible agreement president considers that this
6:43 am
is not the perfect agreement but i don't understand what the alternative is that's a position shared by other signatories to the nuclear deal confirmed following a meeting of the joint commission proposal of action which monitors iranian compliance we all agreed on the fact that there is no violation that the nuclear program the nuclear program related aspects which is all the agreement i've been fulfilled. the new agreement is about nuclear nuclear it's fulfill its deployment is that even so there is no need to reopen the agreements because it's fully delivering but the us secretary of state says while iran may be technically compliant it is not fulfilling what he calls the spirit of the deal regrettably since the agreement was confirmed we have seen anything but a more peaceful stable region and this is the real issue and that's why we talk about iran defaulting on these expectations because those expectations clearly have

disarmament full recognition in good faith if he pulls out of a commitment made to iran by the u.s. government back in two thousand and fifteen when our president trump appears to be conducting diplomacy along the lines of a reality show teasing the audience with the phrase frequently used in recent days . i've decided he says again i've decided i'll let you know what the decision is mike hanna al-jazeera united nations hurricane maria has been downgraded to a category two storm but not before leaving behind widespread damage it hit puerto rico as a category four storm causing widespread flooding and tidal surges the entire island is now without power and the governor has imposed a curfew and a gallagher reports from the capital san juan. puerto rico's southeast coast was the first to feel the effects of hurricane maria but the entire country is now
6:46 am
dealing with the aftermath of one of the most powerful storms to ever hit this island with winds of two hundred fifty kilometers per hour puerto rico was pounded for most of wednesday in san juan hurricane force winds ripped off roofs and blew out windows power has now been lost across the entire island puerto rico's ailing electricity grid is still recovering from hurricane irma it could be months before it's restored in puerto rico on the sand one that we knew yesterday is no longer there so we have to reconstruct to rebuild reinvent and we have to be reselling and we have to push on. with our bodies with our hearts and when our so puerto rico has long been spared from a direct hit as hurricanes tend to veer either south or north of the island the last direct hit from a category four hurricane was decades ago the nearby u.s. virgin islands also took a direct hit with many residents leaving before marie arrived. figure out where i was going to stay in puerto rico and i think a lot of people were in the same boat i mean you had everybody leaving from the the
6:47 am
v.d.i. people leaving from the u.s. we i. but i'm going to be in miami that widespread flooding is now a concern as are mudslides in the islands mountainous regions the governor of puerto rico has now put a curfew in place as a rescue and recovery operation is launched with little communication it's hard to assess the damage but it may be this island's coastal communities and rural communities that took the worst of the damage as hurricane maria leads a path of destruction across puerto rico the recovery of this u.s. territory already dealing with so many challenges could be a long one and gallacher al-jazeera san juan puerto rico well sean sublette is a meteorologist working with climate central in princeton in the u.s. he says there are several factors that influence the strength of hurricanes. there are a couple other things at play you need to have at least a little bit of moisture in the in the middle parts of the atmosphere and the winds throughout the depth of the atmosphere need to be very light so those are also
6:48 am
playing a key role in howrah kings develop but the real fuel for the storms does start with that ocean water so the warmer the ocean water the more heat you can really put into your storm and that's what ultimately going to generate a more powerful storm we are to have admitted enough greenhouse gas into the atmosphere where warming is going to continue even if we were to suddenly just stop all greenhouse gas emissions immediately and would take a while for the atmosphere to kind of come into equilibrium and stop warming so anything that we can do to to stop putting greenhouse gases in the atmosphere will least slow down any kind of woman that goes on in the atmosphere as well as into the ocean of a lot of that energy is going into more than oceans all the way down to a very deep level there really is a lot going on one of the things we like to point out is that climate change isn't causing a particular hurricane what it can do is make a very bad hurricane even worse or potentially horrifying storm catastrophic
6:49 am
so it is going to be something that allows hurricanes to become stronger when the rest of the environmental conditions allow for hurricanes to form in the first place but none of the research suggests that all hurricanes will start to become more numerous but it does suggest that the strongest ones that do manage to develop will become a bit stronger. john for short break here now just when we come back be in the house vice president tells the u.n. general assembly the ring the crisis in rakhine state is getting better. and we'll tell you how california's government's trying to stop the construction of a controversial wall along its border with mexico that. hello there more about the hurricane maria in

a minute but first of all let's just look at how you say oh say still with us meandering off that eastern coast they're throwing a lot of cloud along the eastern parts of canada and the northeastern parts of the u.s. as well and there's fairly dangerous rip currents on this coastline too that system is not going anywhere in a great hurry really sticking around as we head through the day on thursday elsewhere because the one weather system gradually edge its way east with that easing as it does say but another one is forming over the rockies and that's going to bring us some fairly heavy snow during the day on friday for the south of course this is all storm maria has a well defined by indicating that it's a very old.
