2:02 am
there are pictures popping up across social media and this photo was posted online that showed castro leaning in saying how are you in english. the two men shake hands, flashes go off. a historic moment and a symbol of that thaw that we've been talking about. these two countries that have called each other enemy for more than half a century. this is the first time cuba has been to one of those summits. it's an achievement for lots of leaders across latin america. they've been pushing to bring cuba to the table for more than a decade. they have also been tweeting and sending out pictures of this moment. so important for the summit. according to a white house official, this was an informal encounter. we can expect more substantial interaction later today. we'll have another family floet after the one we had last night. there will be time for these leaders to meet on the sidelines for face time talking about more
2:03 am
important and substantial issues. i think one of the out standing issues, is white house officials said we could expect soon, perhaps even today an announcement on cuba being removed from the list of countries that support terrorism. this has been a huge stumbling block for building ties back up. any announcement along those lines would be a big advance. as far as president obama is concerned he'll give a final news conference. >> it brings governments of the western atmosphere. this sees cuba attend for the first time. leaders meet every few years to discuss common economic, social and political concerns, seek solutions and develop a shared vision for the region. the first summit was held in miami in 1994. the last was in columbia in

2:08 am
on this. what i saw was thugs beating up my client. that's what i saw. these questions about what he was doing. what did they do? this is far worse than rodney king. >> reporter: san barn dino sheriff has ordered an immediate internal investigation. the specialized investigation detail is conducting a criminal investigation as well. >> i am disturbed and troubled by what i see in the video. it does not appear to be in line with our policies and procedures, at least a portion of it. i ask that you allow us to conduct that investigation and i assure you, if there is criminal wrongdoing on the part of any of our deputy sheriffs or any policy violations, we will take action. >> reporter: the sheriff's department says deputies were attempting to serve the suspect with a search warrant related to an identity tleft investigation. when he fled in a car and abandoned it and ran into the desert where he stole a horse. in total, a chase that went on for three hours.

2:10 am
tornado struck and they survived to tell the story. with terrifying ferociousness tornados ripped through small towns. residents in the storm's path looked on in fear. >> i'm scared to death of storms. i was watching everything. >> i feel like it's a bad dream. something i'd be watching on the news somewhere else, not in my neighborhood. >> reporter: one tornado cut a 22 mile path through this illinois flat land. the town of fairdale is a somewhat dot on the map but a tornado ripped through it. the town does not have sirens. two elderly women were killed here. those that survived, like this man, knows how lucky they are. >> everything seemed like it happened in two seconds. >> reporter: he rode the storm out while sitting in this blue ford focus. they were inside an iron work
2:11 am
shop. he was inside the car with a co-worker who had raced over with his wife and three young kids to seek shelter. molts later the tornado made a direct hit. >> i remember looking through the windshield and seeing the roof of the shop coming up and down. next thing i know beams are falling. luckily nobody got hurt. >> reporter: he and his friend's family managed to get out of the debris p. to see this of what's left of the building around them. search and rescue teams have spent the day looking through miles of debris looking for survivors. trying to make sure everyone is accounted. for officials say that work is winding down. >> we are very confident we have covered all the areas that needed special attention. >> reporter: emergency officials in the region say many people across the area had 30 minutes' worth of warning ahead of the storms. even though there weren't
2:12 am
tornado sirens here. emergency officials say many of the people did get the warnings ahead of time. in the cases of the two elderly women who died. it would not have made a difference. they were in the hardest hit areas in town. >> that was ed lavandera. the national weather service has surveyed the damage. derek van dam is at the international weather center r. where are we, is this the kind of season where they expect to see that kind of thing ing illinois? >> absolutely. this is very close. on the periphery that is called tornado alley. when we start seeing images like this, you just think about whether or not these people had the appropriate time to get ready, if they had listened to tornado sirens. et cetera. i just look at this particular image. you can see the destructive
2:13 am
force of mother nature, these tornados taking cars flipping them over. taking tree limbs and putting them through house walls. destroying homes. it breaks my heart. the national weather service has to go back and assess the damage to attribute some sort of scale to the strength of the particular tornado. this is called the enhanced fujeeta scale. they look at things like the tree limbs and which direction they fell. whether they fell straight fo forward or had an arc to them. if you look at the aerial photo you can see what i'm talking about. you see the striations in the ground. these powerful wedge tornados which sometimes can be a half to a mile wide, actually can dig up the dirt upwards of two to three feet into the ground. this can happen. it's rare but it can happen. it appears that there is some of that activity taking place in
2:14 am
the fairdale region. you can see that very distinct path. these tornados have been known to rip off asphalt and pavement straight off the ground. come back to my computer graphics you can see the enhance said scale. an ef-4 which is attributed to what you saw. devastating damage that took place. that is what the national weather service classified this tornado as. that means winds up to 322 kilometers per hour. it is almost next to impossible to physically measure the wind inside a tornado. you have to have this enhanced scale to be able to assess that. we have a chance of severe weather this saturday. we're monitoring this for texas and oklahoma panhandle. >> 300 kilometers an hour, i
2:15 am
can't imagine that. with all the severe weather barrelling through the u.s., and georgia. what can we expect? >> the same cold front that was responsible for the weather across the midwest continues to march eastward. this time, it's much weaker. we have a few showers moving across augusta. this is your forecast if you are going to be watching the end of the tournament. we have a small chance of rain but it will clear up. picture perfect by sunday. >> uninterrupted play. syrians caught between isis and the syrian government. we'll show you what conditions refugees are facing. months of speculation could come to an end on sunday. what lies ahead for hillary clinton after her online announcement about her plans for 2016.

2:33 am
cease fire could be reached. these hopes are slim because of the ongoing differences between the president and the houthies right now. both do not want to admit that the other exists. this result is making yemenis suffer the most. hundreds of thousands have been evacuated sanaa. to where will they evacuate? all the provinces right now in yemen are seeing air strikes. it's not one part of the country. it's almost every province. there needs to be a lot to be done and done right. >> you're in the capital right now. what is it like to be there right now in terms of what you see, especially with the civilian population? >> very worrying. all the civilians are either hiding behind -- during the night or staying in basements.
2:34 am
children are forced to put cotton inside their ears. to not hear the air strikes. hundreds of people are lined up outside bakeries to buy bread. again, these bakeries are closed down because there's no flour. gas stations as well. thousands of people have to wait days until they got the car filled up. it gets worse and worse. and what's sad right now is yemen where somali refugees used to come years ago is now the opposite. yemenis are going to somalia. >> that is the problem, where do you run to. people have commented that aiden is getting pulverized. at this point, where do you see the exodus right now? >> right now, there are some hopes that negotiations and talks resume.

2:39 am
agency. he joins me on the phone. in terms of what atika have laid out there. what is left for the people to get out? if isis is there, they want to use this as a staging ground to try and attack the capital. >> i will answer that question in one second. i would like to bring you breaking news and make an announcement here on cnn. that the commissioner general is today now undertaking an urgent mission in coordination with the office of the inspector general. it is prompted by the deepening concern for the safety and protection of the 18,000 palestinians and syrian civilians including 3500 children as is remains under the control of armed groups. can i say, that there are several objectives to the visit. one is to obtain a closer view of the evolving situation and to
2:40 am
learn more of the experiences of individuals. secondly, to consult the government of syria on its perspective and to exchange views of peaceful approaches to addressing the humanitarian consequences of what's going on. thirdly to consult with the envoy in order to secure humanitarian access to civilians. to consult with the deputy special envoy and other colleagues on the un's role in reference to humanitarian action to support civilians. and to recognize and give encouragement from other un agencies. to achieve these objectives, the commissioner general will meet with relevant syrian officials, colleagues and other staff. he will also visit the displaced people presently accommodated in a government school in a nearby town. an important announcement.
2:41 am
a fresh diplomatic and humanitarian mission. the commissioner general. >> i certainly hope that bears fruit, that visit. i have to ask you. given the fact we are talking about several hundred isis fighters that now apparently have control of a large part of that camp, what prospects are that even in trying to broker some deal with syrian officials that it will change the situation for people in that camp? >> i can understand the skepticism that lies behind your question. it is entirely proper. let me say we have had 94 individuals who have left that camp. we have brought humanitarian assistance, things that freshly displaced people need, mattresses, food, medicine. if you can get out 94, then 194 can leave. if that many, then more. we will not abandon hope. we will not submit to pessimism.
2:42 am
to abandon hope would be to abandon the people. as the commissioner general begins this urgent mission, that is something we will not do. we cannot abandon the people. we will not, hence this mission. >> we spoke at this same last weekend. the situation was as dire. things have only gotten worse. at this point, are you also concerned for the safety of others there. we had a first-hand account of how difficult it is to get aid into the camp. >> of course we're concerned. our primary concern has to be for the people of yarmouk. they have been described as hostages. they're caught, under siege since the end of 2012. and now there is fighting in the streets. and serious problems with them leaving, with the civilian
2:43 am
population being evacuated. and, of course, humanitarian access for our workers. yes, thank you for raising the question of our workers. we have lost 14 staff members in this conflict. for us, staff security is quite literally a matter of life and death. >> chris, we thank you for this update. i know that you will continue to keep us updated on the events there. we certainly hope that there is some type of diplomatic progress there on the ground. a deadly shooting outside of a walmart store. it's all caught on camera. details are next. body pain? motrin helps you be an unstoppable, i-can-totally-do-this- all-in-one-trip kind of woman. when pain tries to stop you, there's motrin. motrin works fast to stop pain where it starts. make it happen with new motrin liquid gels.
