right behind us and you can see the waves are just raging as if we were at sea before the storm hit many residents decided to ignore warnings according to the red cross more than 13000 homes have since been destroyed communications are down on some of the islands even as dorian lingers as a still deadly storm. in the midst of a disturbed tragedy imbalance of the northern bahamas. mission and focus now. is search and rescue and recovery. ions for the press for those in effect today areas and for the 1st responders it's expected dorian will remain over the bahamas until at least tuesday morning before heading towards the u.s. is east coast. in florida mandatory evacuation orders are in place as much of the state remains under threat forecasters say the eye of dorian should run powell to
the florida coast but authorities here are taking no chances but we are in a situation where the storm is stalling very close to our coast it is going to make a movement and the movement that it makes is going to have a lot of impact on floridians and so please listen to the instructions heed the instructions do what you need to do to keep you and your family safe other states too are preparing for the worst as dorian's path is projected to bring it close to georgia and the carolinas from its formation dorian has been unpredictable it may have slowed slightly but the threat of landfall storm surges and strong winds remains this storm is still moving its masses i would not take any chances with this one you know continue to move in reverse and so we're not thinking dorian is still a powerful storm and the u.s. is east coast is bracing itself for a days long event that predicted north and is the best case scenario for the entire eastern seaboard authorities here in florida
a warning residents to watch forecasts closely even the slightest deviation could be deadly. the main focus for now is on the bahamas any rescue efforts of being hampered by conditions on the ground but it seems that widespread destruction and loss of life is likely if dorian sticks to his predicted path millions may be spared but no one here is taking any chances and gallacher al-jazeera puts an lucie florida the british prime minister is raising the stakes or brecht's it boris johnson is threatening to call a snap election on october 14th of rebel m.p.'s from within his own party vote with the opposition to stop a no deal brax it and says the u.k. will leave the european union by october 31st with or without a deal or enslave reports parliament has been on holiday for 6 weeks but boris johnson and his aides have been working flat out to make good on level that brics it will happen find of mba with or without any agreed plan with the european union
to show our friends in brussels that we are united in our purpose m.p.'s should vote with the government against cool beans pointless denying. i would everybody to know their own new circumstances in which i would ask russians to do they. but since he has a majority of just war in parliament it doesn't take many rebels from his own conservative party to cause him problems and they are so concerned about a no deal bricks it's that they're ignoring threats to kick them out of the parliamentary party and it seems at least some will back a plan right to order the government to delay breck's it yet again i have decided that in the interests of my constituents are best represented by outlining the perils of no deal and continuing to do what i've done since 2016 which is urge the government to make a deal so that we leave the e.u. in the best possible way both for the u.k. and the e.u.
if they succeed johnson has a number of options and they are all incendiary he could either choose to ignore the will of parliament and push on with it anyway and face accusations of being dictatorial or more likely because called a national election which would in effect become a 2nd referendum on brics it is the big fundamental calculation that someone boris johnson's come from a king is that currently he has the opportunity to unite. supporters of brecht's it under one ticket and the boris johnson ticket while there remain parties there were democrats the labor party the green party the nationalist parties remain completely divided and that's the big fundamental calculation that someone boris johnson's making whether or not that will pay off remains we see all this means there is enormous pressure to on the main opposition leader jeremy corbin much less personally popular than johnson on monday the former labor prime minister tony blair notably failed to offer corbin his own backing in backing away from the idea
of himself as a caretaker prime minister gerry corbin is behave responsibly and if he continues to put country 1st he will benefit the country and himself he can now play a decisive role in how briggs it develops. but you should see elections before briggs it is decided for the elephant trap the days everyone here is gearing up for what feels like one of the most important moments in modern british political history which will help determine whether brics it will happen that's all and if so under what terms for some time the parliament and in particular the conservative policy have been tearing themselves to pieces maybe this eventually will be the defining moment the e.u. is sitting in waiting watching for any piece of movements to clarify what's will happen they like everyone else want an end to this lawrence leo 0 in london
hong kong chief executive kerry lamb says she would quit her role if she had a choice she says she has caused unforgivable havoc by igniting a political crisis that single thing the city following the introduction of a controversial extradition bill or comments were made last week to a group of business people and an audio recording was leaked and also told the group she has very limited room to resolve the crisis because the end rest has become a national security and sovereignty issue for china. for a chance. to host this. is. in the 5 charges 1st thing is to. is to. so. many of. us adrian brown joins us live from hong kong so
a train has now given her weekly briefing what does she have to say about this link . well reshelve here in hong kong they've just put up the typhoon signal number one which means we're in for strong winds and rain the softer noon but certainly on shoes day morning we had a political typhoon which really heats more embarrassment on top of humiliation for beijing because here was kerry lamb having to say emphatically it was never my intention to resign even though there was now a leaked recording of her saying just that i think that leaked reporting recording the show was very much a sort of unofficial apology to the people of hong kong but once again it demonstrates that the hands of the chief executive are tied that the people really calling the shots of the leadership in beijing and kerry is there to do their bidding now caroline has said that the leaking of this audio recording was
inappropriate and she says that these were comments made at a private meeting with her officials as well as local business executives what we don't know of course is who leaked this recording carrie lamb insists it wasn't anyone from her department but let's listen more to what this him battle chief executive had to say just a short time ago. i have never i have never attended a resignation to the central people's government. i have not even contemplated to discuss a resignation with the central people and. the choice of not resigning is my own choice she has attempted to explain that as an individual. given the very difficult circumstances might be it was an easy choice to leave.
well i think the key comment very show was saying the choice of not resigning is my own choice well a lot of people would say actually that is not the case if beijing wants to get rid of her they will do just stop but they have decided that for the moment for reasons of face she has to stay in place they have said this is a mess in a sense that you have created and you kerry have to sort it out so the situation that you have just described and what does that say about how much power she actually does or does not have. well she is in day to day notionally and day to day charge of the hong kong government the administration the civil service but she does have one important area where she could exercise considerable power and that's if she decides to invoke emergency powers unlikely to do that without beijing's approval but if she does decide to do
that with beijing's approval it would give her the power to censor the media to basically ordered the arrest of anybody she wanted to and take control of the transport system but these emergency powers have only ever once been used since 1022 and that was in 1967 now i think if things do deteriorate to the degree where these emergency powers are needed that for beijing would be preferable to soldiers from the people's liberation army or chinese paramilitary police coming in with the latter in many ways represents sort of the nuclear option and at the moment china wants to avoid that at all costs especially as they have this important october the 1st national celebration coming up to show us what's going to strikes and the protests are in the midst of a 2 day straight cracked. yeah quite a bit going on here on shoes day rachele a number of people who've been arrested have been appearing in court at the start
