11:02 pm
important election. just five years ago, the turnout was around 65%. and there are indeed some 45 million eligible voters all over the uk that will be heading to the polls right now. and for the next few hours. to decide on which party they think is best to lead the country. we can't necessarily discuss all of the issues that we have been analyzing for the past few weeks. as i mentioned because at this point, the polls are open. and because cnn is broadcast all over the uk we don't want to influence what happens next. what we can do is connect with our nic robertson, senior international correspondent, stationed north of where i am here in london at a polling station. nic, now the polls are open. tell us what do you see? >> not sure if nic robertson can
11:03 pm
hear me. nic if you can, it's errol barnett. still get everything ready. we are prepping for what is an exciting day. the polls will be open now until 10:00 p.m. british time. that's 5:00 p.m. eastern. you have seen all the campaigning and issues being discussed over the past week. but as i mention we are under broadcast restrictions. we won't be able to discuss any of that as polls are open. as we watch for the outcome. cnn is the place for extensive coverage of the vote. we will have special coverage all day here on cnn as soon as we get our technical issue fixed with nic robertson we'll cross to sim and see how the voting under way is going on already. rosemary church, back to you. >> errol, many thanks to you. we will come back to you in just a moment. for now we want to turn to oklahoma city in the u.s. where for the first time ever
11:04 pm
officials are warning people not to drive because of flash flooding and other severe weather. they are calling it a deadly and dangerous risk. now this comes after a long night of tornados and thunderstorms stretching across several states. emergency officials counted more than 40 reports of tornados so far. oklahoma city was the hardest hit area, at least, 13 people injured there. three critically. homes and businesses there have been destroyed or heavily damaged officials across the midwest are still trying to assess just how much damage the outbreak of tornados did. >> u.s. officials believe a top isis hacker may have recruited or at least influenced the two shooters from sunday's attack in texas. he left an ominous warning on
11:05 pm
social media, essentially a tweet, saying, you ain't seen nothing yet. end quote. now, authorities are looking for him. >> who is he? an 18-year-old hacker from birmingham, aka trick, convicted of computer more prankster than threat. this was his handiwork. team poison, crashing britain's anti-terror phone lines posting on line. also publishing tony blair's private address book on the web. that landed him several months in jail. in 2013, authorities believe hussein became a more serious threat when he went to join isis in syria. last year he confirmed to cnn that he tweets under a name, linked to the attack in garland,
11:06 pm
texas. in october we speck oke to a fo member of team pie soison. he described the man known as trick. >> let's put it this way. i didn't think he was a threat at all until he was on video chat on skype with me dressed as a blank power ranger, holding up an ak-47, i thought was an air soft rifle. but quickly realized it was a real fully automatic machine gun. >> did hussein inspire the attacks in texas? hussein's twitter feed shows him cheering on the two gunmen involved. a u.s. official tells cnn investigators are looking at the degree to which hussein may have had a hand in the attacks. his old hacking partner thinks the threat is real. >> as early as the a few years ago, i knew that trick was capable of -- schooling bank accounts and paypal accounts and
11:07 pm
siphoning money out of them and using those fund for malicious activity on the internet let alone terrorist activity. yeah, i think that guy is a very serious threat. he is extremely dangerous. he is not someone that should be taken lightly. >> abu hussein, has not responded to cnn since the texas attack. now it seems he remains behind the battle lines of isis. >> we want to bring you more now on what has been the most unpredictable election in decade. almost as unpredictable as this broadcast. but we have sorted out our gremlins. we can connect now with senior international correspondent nic robertson outside a polling station i believe in the north of london. nic, tell us what you are seeing this morning? >> well, there are a few people that have gone to the polling station, few people lined up outside as the doors opened. they have gone in. polling started here.
11:08 pm
a nice sunny day. expectations are that turnout could be high today. this particular constituency in the northwest of london. at the last elections was the tightest of all of the -- of all of the, the electoral seats in mainland uk. so this is one of those areas where -- the expectation of a high turnout will be standing here. through the day, watching people come. watching people go. they, they have been lining up outside. walking in. it is a little early around here. but for people to be getting up and going on their way to work. expectation would be, in the next few hours, as people -- begin their journeys to work. they will stop off here before they jump on trains and buses into the center of london. errol. >> and -- nick perhaps we can talk about what voters can and cannot do in polling stations. they do of course, want people to be, able to vote anonymously.
11:09 pm
there are some 43,000 polling stations all over the country. open right now. and, i believe the ballots are a simple alphabetical list of the candidates and folks just have to walk in and check a box, right? >> very simple. very easy. when you show up athe polling station you don't even need identification. you just inform the electoral officials of your name and your address. and if you are register to vote, then on you go. and very simple, form, of course there are some places in the country where it is not just the general election that actually -- one town we visited, just in the past few days. they will be voting on five differenter use. local counselors, even the police commissioner being voted on today. so some constituencies around the country more than just a general election. but of course that's the beg focus at the moment, errol. but of course that's the big focus at the moment, errol.
11:10 pm
>> we can see a steady stream of voters head night polling station behind nic robertson. nic, continue to check in with you throughout the day. rosemary, the weather nisz where nic is, where i a it is calm. thankful for that. not sure you noticed earlier in the week. we had wind. the live location almost blew away. we had rain. certainly more temperate weather today we are all welcoming quite warmer. >> indeed. good weather for hopefully most will come out and place their votes. we'll keep an eye on that. errol barnett back to you in a moment. we were telling you about the tornados. as the severe weather threat diminishes overnight here in the united states and in tornado alley, a new threat is emerging. flooding is our new concern with a slow moving storms. meteorologist derek van dam joins us to talk about that.
11:11 pm
a big concern now isn't it? >> when you lose the daytime heating from the sunshine. we start to see severity of the thunderstorms diminish. severe weather threat continues to weaken. the flooding now i am concerned about. particularly the oklahoma city region who has the had the third rainiest, 24 hour period in history. incredible. 5 1/2 inches of that was a 75-year record. some impressive stuff. flash flooding a concern. they have had lots of tornados in the midwest. people go to assess the damage. they go out some times in their vehicles. that can be concerns as well with flooding waters you see on their screen. remember, 1 foot of water, floats vehicles. two feet of rushing water carries vehicles away. and, that is very concerning. as people try to -- assess. again. some of the tornadic damage that moved through the midwest recently. look at this, impressive rainfall total for the oklahoma city region. again, third rainiest, 24 hour period in oklahoma city's history. just a little bit over 7 inches
11:12 pm
of rain. 220 millimeters. you can see -- that occurred within a 24 hour period. but it really was that, that, two-hour period where they received their heaviest of rain. just 5 1/2 inches that, that led to some of that localized flooding. get sowing much rain in such a short amount of time. and you don't want to see this. this is actually a tornado shelter. the ground was so saturated from heavy rain that came through oklahoma city. it helped to unearth this, what sa is protection from tornadic events. not what you want to see when you look at safetien one of the via, heavy rain, lifting that tornado shelter out of ground. there were wedge tornados reported. there were rope tornados reported. this is a half mile wide, wedge tornado in the hardy, nebraska region. 46 tornados in total. one now just popping up on the eastern side of, colorado. but you can see. generally from northern texas through oklahoma. nebraska, and chance cancel. that was really the, the main
11:13 pm
area that we saw tornadic development. now losing the daytime heating from the sun. storms weaken. we do have a watch box ongoing from northern texas through portions of oklahoma. these thunderstorms still could produce large hail, damaging wind. isolated tornado. again really the heavy rain that i am concerned about. and with rainfall totals over 7 inches, people going outside to assess their damage. especially early thursday morning. they're going to have to look out for the rushing water on the roadways major concern. >> yeah, absolutely. the image there of the tornado, just horrifying. >> yeah, you look for shelter in something look that. but to have it unearthed. >> so exposed. we'll talk again soon. thank you. >> the u.s. is preparing to give limited military training to syrian rebels so they can return to their homes and defend against isis. the first of 400 u.s. military trainers an now in turkey and jr. da jordan. the u.s. will teach small arms
11:14 pm
and battlefield tactics and raidy and medical gear. so far the u.s. plans to train about 5,000 moderate rebels per year. but the co-legislation of opposition groups says, that's not enough. we need to include much more fighters, we have the capability. ability to fight against the terrorism and -- and against the terror led by the syrian regime. but we need to include much more fighters from the fsa in this program. and we, we need to have it much more faster. and we need to protection from the -- from the -- from the air attacks of the regime. >> some other stories we are following for you now. the pentagon says isis militants breached the perimeter of the oil refinery in iraq. it is not operational, still a crucial battleground location
11:15 pm

11:16 pm
investigators say 27-year-old lubitz practiced before he steered into the french alps. just before the deadly crash, lubitz and the captain, piloted the plane to barcelona. with the captain out of the cockpit, the flight data reporter shows that he brief leave set the plane's auto pilot to 100 feet before leveling off again. >> he certainly was exploring the aircraft and its ability to go up or down. and not stop him from descending it into the ground. making sure nobody would see him. >> reporter: according to the report, the selected altitude decreased to 100 feet for three second. then increased to the maximum value of 49,000 feet. less than two minutes later the selected altitude was 100 feet until it stablized at 25,000 feet t the flight never left its scheduled path. so air traffic control didn't
11:17 pm
notice the altitude changes. unless the plane is equipped to stream the data and they decide to stream the data of the aircraft performance from the flight and some one is monitoring it, they wouldn't hatch noticed. it is clear the pilot didn't notice for another reason. the front lab was not operative. he was gone four minutes. >> reporter: it appears it was a dry run for what he would do later the same morning on board the plane during flight 9525. lubitz waited until the captain left, locked the door, set it to 100 feet. directed the jetliner into the mountains killing all 150 people on board. awe thought was cnn aviation correspondent renee marsh reporting from washington. a north korean insider gives us a rare look at the reclusive regime. no topping w inic was off-limit
