the people of vanuatu are very experienced with emergenciesment they ever had problems. practiced dealing with earthquakes and tsunamis. the strength of this one has exceeded people's ability, probably to cope for a traditional method. >> so our viewers are aware. you are unicef as you look at this picture right now, what worried you the most. >> at this point, we really need to get some good information about what the needs are. you know for example, there's a measles outbreak here and people are gathering together at shelters so we need to make sure that doesn't spread further what these people who are together. so we have a specialist who will be attending that. there is huge needs for shelter, huge needs for water and sanitation and of course things like getting children
back into school and back on track with their education. we know from experience the school is one of the fastest ways to help the recover from the traumatic experience like this. >> she joins us from unicef thank you very much stay safe and best of luck there. let's get more on the storm and devastation it brought to the islands. our meteorologist is at the world weather center. you heard her say it's almost like a bomb went off. gale winds still very strong. >> it is slowly starting to weaken which is good news. but just gathering that information that alice was talking about, this is bringing back very similar characteristics and similar reminders of what was the strongest supertyphoon to impact the philippines back in 2013. that was a strong category 5 as well. this is actually the second strongest storm to make landfall
since supertyphoon haiyan over a year ago. this is what it looks like after it crossed over the capital city. it made landful in the morning with winds of 325 kilometers per hour. equivalent to a category 5 hurricane. al tearing down people's houses and their livelihoods. this will take months if not years to rebuild from this devastating tropical cyclone. on top of this we have also had not only the strong winds and coastal storm surge, but weave had excessive rain that's led to localized flooding. this is the data we've found,b you can see at that eye wall made its way across port villa they had 230 millimeters.
they're monthly average 330 millimeters. we've got 70% of their monthly rainfall in matter of 48 hours. here's the latest on the storm, 250 kilometer sustained winds. this is still a strong category 4 equivalent. you can see the last part of the rain bands moving away from port vila. this is roughly 400 kilometers southeast of caldonia. it is going to weaken. and we will see it become more disorganized as it encountered colder water. as we'll date later on in the show we will look for this to bring rough weather to the north island of new zealand. >> i'm guessing it will take a couple of days before it can assess the damage. thank you very much. >> thank you. i'll turn your attention to the front lines of the fight against isis. forces in iraq pushing to take
bake tikrit. at least one witness described the fighting as intense and reinforcements had to be sent in. officials believe attacking ramadi friday was a retaliation for the operation in tikrit. isis blew up an iraqi army base killing more than 40 soldiers. u.s. and coalition forces launched 11 new air strikes againstize in iraq syria thursday into friday. air strikes hit multiple isis targets near cubonny in syria. in iraq coalitions forces hit four cities including mosul. a new release video appears to show three british teenager before they crash a turkish border into isis. also making a cameo in this video is a man turkish officials say helped them. atika shubert explains. >> reporter: they're faces

agency of a country who is a member of a coalition. complicated is an understatement. turkey is irked by suggestion,s it's not doing enough to stop isis supporters from crossing its border into syria. britain's security services are under scrutiny for failing to warn the parents their daughters were at risk. already interviewed by police. now allegations the girls were helped across the border by a spy. no coalition government has commented. at the center of this are three teen age schoolgirls to be in the isis stronghold of raqqa. their family has made no statement since the arrest in turkey. one can only imagine their distress to see the girl's faces. hear the uncertainty in their voices and wonder where they are now. atika shubert, cnn, london. now chinese fighter jets are patrolling the country's

grown tense. the u.s. is also voiced frustration with continued israeli settlement activity something that's caused tension between israel and europe. for six years under the prime minister the peace process with the palestinians has been grad locked. month of negotiations with john kerry broke down last april leading the palestinians to make unilateral nuvs at the united nations. the left has pledged to restart peace talks, something many israelis say they want. economic issues housing prices, health care has emerged as key issues. israeli says these domestic issues could be key factor in determining their next leader. >> a bold prediction from the greek defense minister if greece leaves the youro zone spain and italy will follow

his watch. >> reporter: what does the mayor have to say about that? we asked him. why should they trust you since you were here during all the madness that has unfolded. >> i can tell you this there is ways to remove me. if that is the will of the people. i think it's important to recognize that there's a lot of people who may be angry at the situation or frustrated in this community. with the way things have gone down. there's a lot of people who still -- have expressed to me expressed confidence in my willingness and members of the council's willingness to listen and be responsive. >> that includes black and white residents we talked to. >> i believe the mayor has done a good job. he's only been there four years. in that time he has consciously tried to reach out to all parts of our community. ff we use the mayor, we lose a source for change and it will be harder to make the change skblr it's an understatement to say
race relations here remain raw. would you say race relations are worse since august 9th? >> i think they're more strained than they've ever been in a long time here in this community and probably across the country. i think right now there's a people in this country who are wanting to talk about it and willing to talk about it. one of the things we're focused on is bringing people together and bridging that gap. whereas before maybe we didn't see any of these frustrations. >> reporter: when it comes to protests groups in and out of ferguson calling for the mayor to step down he says they'll have to recall him, because he is not going to resign. >> reporter: if you want to get rid of the mayor, do a recall. >> he did things that was not right. he did things under his watch, he knew what was going on. he needs to take responsibility for it. >> reporter: there is a legal way to do it t right? people can get together and recall him from office.

a bomb had fwaun off. the tropical cyclone pam slowly weakening. our meelshteorologist is at the world weather center. where is it moving to? >> over the next 48 hours it will move into colder waters and continue to weaken. then it will start to bring some of the outer rain bands and some of the stronger wind gusts to the north island of new zealand believe it or not. let's talk about it and show you exactly what we're expecting. this is the southern portions of the vanuatu islands. here is new caledonia, this is fiji this is the center of the cyclone. look as we go forward in time this is the north island of new zealand zealand. al you can see the outer rain bands lashing the coastal areas of the north island. this is late sunday and into monday local time. it will be a much weaker storm.
