it is 4:00 p.m. in the philippines where super typhoon is pummeling parts of island nation with heavy rain. in this video, you can see how powerful the rising waters are beneath that ridge there. thousands of people have been evacuated we're happy to say. strong winds uprooted trees and ripped roofs off homes. storm made landfall early sunday local time shutting down roads and bridges. there are widespread power outages, flooding and landslides. more could likely be on the way as this storm is moving very slowly toward the west. for the latest, let's get to philippines correspondent paul garcia. he joins us from there. paul, what are you hearing? >> reporter: hi natalie.
[ inaudible ] in the northern part of the philippines. been here for the past 24 hours. since 8:00 in the morning yesterday. it's sunday today. i'm showing the highways. this is one of the major highways in the area. the floodwaters here are -- flooding in the rivers here. they say that this is very unusual for them to experience this. a lot of typhoon in the philippines over the past years, but these waters reaching their peak is very unusual for them to see. now, we are the place where we're standing, also security
evacuating. you're going to see a lot of people evacuating and we have seen some of the officers leading some people to evacuate. [ inaudible ] we have just received a report that around -- the small town here in the philippines, they are already at the -- the floodwaters, officers are asking for help from the national government to provide them some help to transport people from the evacuation centers. more than 1,000 people are affected by the typhoon. this is since 1:00 this morning. it's already i just checked the time here.
4:00. again, officials are asking for help from the national government to provide power to be able to assist all the people in need in the evacuations right now. natalie? >> paul, we appreciate your reporting so much. paul garcia for us in the philippines. let's go now to our meteorologist karen maginnis. paul just said. the people of the philippines, they see so many storms that the people there are amazed that the water is already as high as it is. for the filipino people to be amazed, that means they have significant water issue there. >> yes. two years ago we saw haiyan, the most powerful typhoon in any basin, ocean basin ever. it claimed about 6500 lives.
so this one, maybe not as powerful. although it was equivalent to a category 4 hurricane in the atlantic basin. so as it pushed on shore, we saw this incredible eye and just an incredible storm, 650 kilometers in diameter just slam on shore. so it is officially the landfall for the last 15 hours. but there were tropical storm force winds well in advance of this system. so i want to point out that this eastern edge of this super typhoon has eroded significantly. but there's still a lot of moisture available here. there are mountains here that will wring out this moisture. even though it may not resemble that category 4 equivalent super typhoon that we were looking at 15 hours ago, it is still very powerful with significant rainfall totals in the next 48 hours, they say about 475
millimeters to baggio. what we'll see in the next seven days, possibly a meter. what had looked to be significant rainfall for the east coast, now it looks like the west coast. i think it's going to continue to shift a little bit. the most recently updated storm totals that we've seen. what is impacting this region, making this move towards the north rather than to the west is a very strong ridge of high pressure. so the typhoon is going to take the path of least resistance. it's not going to try to bump into that ridge. it's just going to go around it. it's more going to move towards the north. natalie, it's going to weaken. but being battered by heavy rain x strong winds, catastrophic flooding, just is so significant for the next several days. but we'll be here on the scene in weather center and monitor it. >> so far no reports of loss of
life, but as you say, the danger isn't over because of this rain they're going to get. we'll talk to you soon, karen. more death, violence and finger pointing as tensions between israelis and palestinians continue to escalate. palestinians carried out five knife attacks in heb ron, jerusalem. the condition of one alda sail ant is unclear. the israel defense forces say the intended victims were police, soldiers and civilians. senior international correspondent ben wedeman is live for us in jerusalem. ben, there was a peace rally also saturday following the violence. so what is the day bringing so far on this sunday? >> reporter: so far, there are no incidents reported. but the cloesh shush of
palestinian neighborhoods continues. if i step out of the way, you can get a look. we're in a palestinian suburb to the east of jerusalem. it has been under this closure. actually, it's been under closure for quite some time but it's been tightened. there are now these cement blocks across the road, vehicles aren't allowed to pass. so what people do is they get a bus from inside the town and they come up and when they arrive here at the checkpoint, the men, for instance have to lift their shirts and lift the bottom of their pants to show that they're not concealing any weapons. when you speak to people coming out of through this checkpoint, there's a lot of anger. one man telling me that this simply isn't going to solve the problem. it's only going to get worse. this is one of the many measures that the israeli government has taken to try to put an end to these stabbing attacks.
they've deployed thousands of troops in jerusalem, troops and police officers in jerusalem and around the country, but as mentioned, there were five incidents yesterday. many of them actually taking place in hebron in the southern west bank, which is technically got part of israel itself. there doesn't seem to be any let-up in the attacks happening. any let-up in the growing resentment among palestinians as you can see behind me. natalie? >> we were seeing a close-up of one of the pal stin yasians having to endure lifting up his shirt. bigger picture, ben, world leaders are asking for the rhetoric to be toned down from both sides and the peace ops are going nowhere. the question, is this the third into fatah? what is the palestinian
leadership saying about this? >> reporter: the palestinian leadership is sending sort of mixed message president on the one hand, we heard president abbas condemning the burning of the tomb up in the northern west bank over the weekend. but at the same time, they continued to insist that president mahmoud abbas has made speeches in which we will continue peaceful nonviolent protests against the israeli occupation. at the end of the day, the problem is, of course, that on the one hand there's very little you can do from the israeli perspective to stop an individual who is self-motivated, who decided to stab someone. none of them have been found to have any connection with the usual suspects. hamas, islamic jihad, the popular front for the liberation of palestine. essentially, though, what we've seen since the summer of 2014 is
that you have had regular flare-ups of violence going on and they're becoming more and more frequent. the time between each of them is growing less and less. there doesn't seem to be any effort on behalf of, for instance, the united states which tried beginning of the summer of 2013 with, say, u.s. secretary of state john kerry who tried to revive the peace process, that collapsed in april of 2014. and yes, president obama talked about tamping down the violence, but the problem is that, as long as the basic features remain, as long as there's an israeli occupation of the west bank and east jerusalem, there will be problems. and unless that is addressed, what you have is probably not a -- into fatah. but you have a constant background drum roll of violence that has no prospect of ending unless there's a solution. natalie? >> all right.
ben wedeman, well-put. we get it. thank you so much. live for us there in israel. meantime, as i mentioned, this peace rally, hundreds of israelis and palestinians condemn the violence. they're calling for it to end. they march through the streets of jerusalem in a joint peace rally saturday. the marchers say dialog is the answer to peace. >> we have to talk. we have to start communicating with each other so we will have a true solution. we have to do it for our sake, for our children's sake. the israeli side and the palestinian side, same. >> when people are willing to come out to the streets and say this is worth my saturday night, the future is worth my saturday night, my children and collective children are worth it. that gives me hope. that doesn't happen every day. >> since the start of october, israeli officials say seven israelis have been killed and
five palestinians. nearly four dozen palestinians have been killed in jerusalem, gaza and the west bank. as you heard from the man on, he's hopeful that the voices of peace will reign there. leading candidate for mayor of germany is in stable condition after a bizarre attack. an attacker came up and stabbed her while she was campaigning at a market. the suspect told police he targeted her for her work with refugees. of all the countries in europe, germany has taken the most refugees and migrants. colon's election will go ahead as planned. we want to turn to the latest in the migrant crisis. 3,000 refugees have reached slovenia from croatia. they're allowing migrants to enter from two border crossings
were croatia. in a few hours, german -- angela merkel will discuss the ongoing migrant crisis. united nations secretary general ban ki-moon is calling on the eu to come together to get this crisis under control. ban and his wife spent time with the -- the u.n. chief himself is a refugee and told his story to children at the shelter. ban says his south korean village was bombed forcing him to flee at the age of 6. it is a question lingering over american politics. will this man, joe biden, run for president? next we have the latest on his possible bid for the white house. also, australia's plan to change the law when it comes to medical marijuana. we'll have a live interview from australia as we push on here.
and in america's choice, a big question looming over the election right now. is he in or is he out? the question about joe biden running for president. a source says the vice president spoke with a prominent labor leader by phone friday suggesting he's planning to jump into the race. biden is under a lot of pressure to make a decision and soon. senior white house correspondent jim acosta with the latest. >> it's the big question all over washington. will he or won't he? >> when joe biden's political future came up in the oval office, the vice president was just a few feet away listening with his lips sealed. president obama later brushed off the question. >> i'm not going to comment on what joe's doing or not doing. i think you can direct those questions to my very able vice president. >> but a decision appears to be coming soon, so says biden's
former senate chief of staff in a message to the vice president's political network. i am confident that the vice president is aware of the practical demands of making a final decision soon. kaufman also described what a biden campaign would be like. in other words -- >> going to put y'all back in change. >> lots of biden being biden. >> i think it's fair to say knowing him as we do, it won't be a scripted affair. after all, it's joe. but democrats are all but begging biden to hurry as one senior party official put it, if the silence goes into next week, friends think the decision is made for him. hillary clinton is practically pushing herself in cnn's with jake tapper. >> a decision has to be made. certainly, i'm not in any way suggesting or recommending that the vice president accept any timetable other than the one that is clicking inside of him. he has to make this decision. >> plus, the longer biden waits, the more it hurts. the latest poll in new hampshire shows clinton and rival bernie
sanders in front of the vice president. when democratic voters were asked if biden should enter the race, half said no. >> i think he knows this is the day and he's got to make a decision. a lot of people are waiting. people who really care about him and want to help him are waiting too. he needs to move on there. >> democrats are starting to compare biden's lengthy deliberations to those of the late new york governor mario cuomo who actually had a plane on a tarmac waiting to take him to new hampshire in 1992 but cuomo pulled back at the last minute. and clinton went on to become president. >> jim acosta reporting for us. over to the republican side, candidate jeb bush will be speaking with jake tapper on cnn's state of the union in a few hours. you can also watch jake's full interview with democratic front-runner hillary clinton. that's coming up at 2:00 p.m. in london, 3:00 p.m. in berlin
right here on cnn. republican front-runner donald trump is under fire once again. this time over controversial comments about how much responsibility george w. bush, jeb's brother, deserved for the 9/11 terror attacks. trump has been unusually quiet since engaging in a twitter war with republican rival jeb bush. jeremy roth has the story. >> when you talk about george bush and say what you want, the world trade center came down during his time. >> he's under fire for suggesting that george w. bush is partly to blame for the 9/11 attacks. in a friday interview with bloomberg tv, the republican presidential candidate seemed to imply bush shared responsibility for the acts of terrorism that took down the twin towers. >> he was president, okay? don't blame him or don't blame him but he was president. the world trade center came down during his reign. >> the former president's
brother responded via twitter saying how pathetic for donald trump to criticize the president for 9/11. so far trump has refused to answer questions on the subject. >> mr. trump, do you think 9/11 was president bush's fault? >> on twitter your comments about 9/11. >> do you have a comment on jeb bush? >> with you but the candidate has responded on social media engaging in a twitter war with his rival. no, jeb bush. you're pathetic for saying nothing happened during your brother's term when the world trade center was attacked and came down. ben carson said he didn't hear trump's remarks but when asked if president bush shared in the attacks? he responded i think it's ridiculous to say he's
responsible for it. more on the 2016 election coverage in a few hours on cnn with jake tapper. we want to turn to australia making a major change to their law. it plans to legalize medical marijuana. the australian government says it will amend legislation on the books to allow cannabis to be grown legally for medical and scientific purposes. advocates pushed for the change saying it was unfair to make patients criminals for relying on marijuana to ease pain from debilitating illnesses. joining me now to talk about this is dr. alex woe dak, he's president of the australian drug law reform foundation, a proponent of this change. doctor, thanks for joining us. first, i want to talk about, this was a conservative government's willingness to come around to this change. what pushed it through? >> well, this has been talked about for several years in australia. and 20 countries around the world are now doing this. and doing it very successfully.
and a major development in theless 18 months was heroic efforts by a mother to protect her son, who is 25 years old. was dying of cancer and since died. she broke everyone's heart by reminding everybody that this is about relieving human suffering. i think the government has responded to that. >> that's interesting. we saw the same happen in the u.s. and the west coast with assisted suicides and it was one mother's continuous plea about that, that changing laws. but you have pointed out being an advocate for medicinal marijuana that it would be safer for patients as well if they don't have to rely on the black market. >> yes. well we know that in many countries these days, a lot of people use cannabis for medicinal purposes and of course, in most countries, they
have to rely on the black market. and you never know the strength of the cannabis they're buying from the black market, whether it's contaminated with heavy metals for pesticides. if there's a regulated source, like any other regulated medicine, it's got to be safer. >> you pointed out the one case in australia that is won people over for this mother pleading for help for her son. what kind of afflictions respond to marijuana that help patients in pain or discomfort? >> there are about half a dozen ones where the evidence is clear. a long list of others where there's contention. but the strongest ones are intractable nausea and vomiting after chemotherapy where other methods have been tried and failed. certain kinds of disseminated
sclerosis, severe spasticity and conventional treatments haven't worked. chronic pain, especially due to nerve damage rather than tissue damage. and also loss of appetite and wasting in advance cancer and hiv. hiv is not so common these days, but unfortunately, advanced cancer still often causes severe wasting and loss of appetite. so those are the main ones. as far as we know, there's no cure. there's certainly no proven cure. but there's increasing incidence that there may be cures in the future. >> as you point out, it's already allowed in 20 other countries. i'm just wondering, was there objection within the government at this point of making this change and concerns about this being misused? >> that was a concern. but the evidence that we have from the united states and other countries is that that really
isn't a significant issue. there are two important studies not yet replicated, so have to be interpreted cautiously in the united states. one showing that in large number of people involved, states where medicinal cannabis is lawful r there's a 25% lower rate of death from opium-type substances, morphine, methadone and those substances. another showing 10% lower rate of suicides in males. so far not yet in females. there's some evidence that there may be some very significant indirect benefits as well. >> we appreciate you joining us, doctor. the president of the australian drug law reform foundation. thank you. >> my pleasure. up next here, addictions head to polls again. there's concern that voters are burned out from the country's
mubarak. you're watching "cnn newsroom" live from atlanta. i'm natalie allen. here are our top stories right now. super typhoon koppu is pummeling parts of the philippines with heavy rains at this moment. emergency officials say thousands of people have been evacuated. the storm made landfall early sunday in the philippines. you can see that the flooding is the issue. flooding and landslides are
possible over the next two to three days as the flooding slowly moves north. israeli authorities say four palestinians were shot and killed as they carried out knife attacks. five took place in israel and the west bank. meantime, hundreds of israeli and palestinians came together and rallied in jerusalem for a call to an end to this violence. slovenia says its army will help police deal with the thousands of migrants continuing to come from hungary and croatia. the small nation says 2700 people arrived saturday. this all after hungary, diverted all of the thousands of people, the families to slovenia. a leading candidate for mayor of cologne germany is in the hospital after being stabbed in the neck. she was attacked while campaigning at a market on saturday. according to police, a suspect targeted her for her work with
refugees. she was stabbed. cologne's election will go ahead on sunday as planned. she is in stable condition. egyptians are heading to the polls today for the first phase of parliamentary elections. this is the eighth time citizens will cast their ballots in just four years leading to concerns that voter fatigue may cause a low turnout. ian lee is watching this for us from cairo and joins us now. ian, you had a report a few days ago that said, some of the people you've interviewed didn't even know there was an election going on. that kind of shows you about the overall ho-hum over this situation. what are you hearing as far as the voting today? >> reporter: that's right, natalie. the voter turnout has slowly declined since it peaked really after the revolution. this morning, we're outside of a polling station. there was about a few dozen
people lined up ready to go in and vote. right now, though, we're seeing a slow trickle of people going in. but it is still early. the polls have been open for about an hour and people are still at work. we're expecting that it would pick up once work gets out. this is over the course of two days. so people can really plan out when they're going to vote. but people we have talked to are fatigued. they've been voting, they've been asked to vote even the government has tried to push for people to vote. candidates were only given two weeks to really introduce themselves to the public. so really not a lot of time there. talking to people, a lot of their concerns are around security. right now, egypt is fighting a very deadly insurgency. other things we're hearing are education, health and jobs. so a lot of issues there that they want this new parliament to tackle. this is going to be a very long
process. this is just the first of two stages. 27 million egyptians voting in this stage and next month, the second half of eligible voters will be voting. another 27 million. so it will be a long election process, natalie? >> as you spoke, we were seeing early voting taking place by egyptians in lebanon. as you said, the government only allows all of these candidates to introduce themselves and campaign for two weeks leading up to this election. that probably has also quelled the interest. why was that decision made by the government? >> reporter: it really was quick. we didn't know there was going to be a parliamentary election until the end of august when they announced it and then they gave candidates about, oh, 10, 12 days to register and then the campaigning began. a lot of these people, though, are well-known in their
neighborhoods. so they do have that name recognition. but two weeks, that is a far cry from what the united states has where we're seeing right now where it's over a year away and they're all campaigning. the government not giving them that much time and that has led to some of the confusion about who to vote for actually and where to vote. i talked to one analyst, though, and he told me that there is a benefit out of this confusion. he said that it will make it harder if anyone wants to try or is thinking about trying to rig an election or trying to do anything like that. it will be harder because there really isn't that much time and really no one knows who they should throw their support behind. there's over 5,000 candidates running in this election. there's multiple parties. it is a very complicated electoral system that they're going into. a lot of confusion but the people we talked to, they're adamant about who they're voting for, some sharing names, some
not. they say they want the candidates to work with the government to move forward. >> a lot of people continue to want lives to be different there in egypt. we understand you're bringing up the u.s. election because be careful what you wish for, some americans might wish our process were just two weeks right about now. ian lee for us, thank ian. we're learning details about a hacker accused of stealing information about u.s. military members and giving it to isis. the kosovo citizen was arrested in malaysia. cnn's brian todd has more about that. >> a 20-year-old studying computer science in malaysia accused of helping isis publish a kill list of american service members. the man originally from kosovo arrested in malaysia and now u.s. officials are seeking his extradition. according to a criminal complaint, he hacked into the computer system of an internet
hosting company in phoenix, stole the names, addresses, phone numbers, photographs and passwords of more than 1300 u.s. service members and other government staffers. then he gave the data to isis "to target the u.s. personnel for attacks and violence." >> how dangerous is this 20-year-old alleged attacker? >> with the right amount of money and commitment and enough time on your hands, you can pull something off like that. i mean, they said they will commit themselves to -- that also includes online. >> after he hacked the u.s. service members' data, he gave it to the notorious head of isis' hacking division, killed recently in a u.s. drone strike. hussein is believed to have start -- the foiled attempt in may to shoot up a prophet mohammed cartoon drawing contest in garland, texas. he and his british born wife
sally jones published the list online this summer encouraging lone wolf attacks. know that we are in your e-mails and computer systems watching and recording your every move and that sigh sis operatives "will strike at your necks in your own lands." >> this drives people to follow-up on this information. maybe it will get a hit on someone. maybe it won't. it also freaks out u.s. government, military and law enforcement personnel. >> cnn attempted to reach dozens of people on the kill list. some e-mails bounced back as being old addresses. others went through. one retired serviceman confirmed to us the phone number for him on the list was accurate. he said the pentagon alerted him. a u.s. military official tells cnn, so far there's no indication any u.s. service members have been attacked. analysts warn there are more hackers out there. >> they could live in western countries like western europe, england, france, germany or they could be in malaysia.
>> contacted by cnn, a relative of the accused hacker says the family is shocked at the notion that he might be involved with isis and skeptical of the charges. the relative who didn't want to be named says fa riz a recently planned to return home from malaysia. he suffers from mental issues and they were getting worse. promising news on lamar odom who was unresponsive for days in a nevada hospital. we'll have the latest on his condition right after this.
to this incident. we have upwards of 20 victims. >> chilling new details in the oregon community college massacre from shooting survivor chris mintz, the army veteran who has been called a hero for protecting others. >> he's in the classroom. >> in a facebook posting, he recalled the day that he says started out as normal but quickly descended into chaos. he writes, there was a bunch of yelling and that there were gunshots going off that sounded like firecrackers. minutes who sat in the front of class says everyone got up and took off. i stopped and held the door open and waited for everyone to leave safely he writes. he took direction from a counselor and kept screaming someone needed to tell the people in the library and i told her i'd do it. >> someone is outside one of the doors. >> he admits he made his way back to the classroom area and came face to face with the gunman.
he leaned out and started shooting as i turned toward him, he recalled. this is how he described the shooter. he was so nonchalant, like he was playing a video game and showed no emotion. he said the shots knocked me to the ground and felt like a truck hit me. he says he was shot again while on the ground and that the gunman said, that's what you get for calling the cops. he writes in the facebook post that he didn't call police and that they were already on the way. he yelled to the gunman, it's my kid's birthday, man. he says the shooter pointed the gun right at my face and retreated back into the classroom. >> hello everyone. i'm doing well. >> a friend posted this video of mintz in the hospital. he's since been released and has this lingering question. >> i'm still confused why he didn't shoot me again. >> maybe it's because he told the shooter it was his son's birthday. we're glad to hear that from chris mintz. what a hero.
former u.s. basketball star lamar odom apparently opened his eyes and smiled saturday according to a tweet from kim kardashian, the sister of odom's estranged wife khloe. odom has been in the hospital since he was found unresponsive at a brothel in nevada on tuesday. we have the latest on his condition and more from the brothel's owner. >> in small increments sources say that lamar odom is improving. he is still here in the icu unit and now a feud emerging between the odom and kardashian families and the owner of the brothel. i pressed him on this. i said dennis, is it possible that you are trying to gain publicity for your business while a man is in an icu unit. here's what he had to say. >> the kardashians, not wanting anybody to talk. i mean, these girls are made -- the kardashians are known for talking to the media and doing things. they want to control what was
said. they're going to say bad things about me and my place. they've already said things out in the media. so has the father. i just want the true story to come out because we have nothing to hide. >> he also said in 911 calls and before, there were reports that odom had been doing cocaine before he got to the brothel. he vows that neither of the two girls who were with odom were doing any drugs. his businesses have a zero drug tolerance policy and that six times in 23 years he has fired employees for drug use at his various brothels. paul ver cam on, cnn, las vegas. "cnn newsroom" will continue right after this. hey, you forgot the milk! that's lactaid. right. 100% real milk, just without the lactose. so you can drink all you want... ...with no discomfort? exactly. here, try some...
minutes. the welsh have only beaten them twice in 100 years. south africa now faces new zealand in the semifinals. the world cup favorites new zealand are famous for that pregame war dance, the hocka. unusual but entertaining to watch. cnn spoke with some players about what it means to them. >> it's a challenge. it's just -- the warriors used to do before they went -- making sure they give it your all when
you do it. for me, the haka is a symbol of who we are and where we come from. here we are. it's obviously comes from our background but i think it also resonates with all. >> i'm a huge fan of the haka. i think it's one of the great spectacles in rugby. people say are you scared facing the haka? if you're scared facing that, there's no point in playing the game. for me it's a challenge. if you challenge me, fine, let's play. i think it's great. >> for me personally, it was more about us in terms of new zealand and indigenous people, the people that had gone before
us, that are wearing this amazing jersey and coming together as one to beat the competition. as we say, a great way to start work. history is history here in new zealand. it's reflected through performing the haka. it's something that's very special to them and to new zealand. you're united as one and we show this through performing the haka. >> how about the haka. got to love it. after a horrific car crash last year, beloved comedian tracy morgan was back hosting
"saturday night live." >> thank you. thank you very much. thank you so much. no i'm just playing. >> morgan was critically injured when a truck hit his limo claiming the life of one of his friends. in his opening monologue, morgan stayed true to form. here it is. >> people are wondering, can he speak? does he have 100% mental capacity? but the truth is, i never did. i may actually be a few points higher now. >> love him. some of morgan's former 30 rock co-stars were there, including tina fey and alec baldwin. thanks for joining us this hour. i'm natalie allen. i'll be right back after the short break with our top stories from around the world.
the philippines get battered as super typhoon koppu barges in. we'll have the latest on the storm. after new clashes this weekend, hundreds of people hit the streets of jerusalem demanding peace. we'll have a live report. and will he or won't he? new indications u.s. vice president joe biden is getting closer to making a decision on a bid for the white house and perhaps to the response yes, he will. we'll see. welcome to our viewers in the u.s. and around the world. this is "cnn newsroom," i'm natalie allen.
a super typhoon is leaving a path of destruction in the philippines as it pummels parts of the island nation with heavy rain. we have video here showing how powerful the rising waters are beneath this bridge. emergency officials say thousands of people have been evacuated after a plea from the filipino president for people to take cover. winds, uprooted trees, roofs off homes, the storm made landfall early sunday local time shutting down parts of the philippines. there are widespread power outages, flooding, more could be on the way as this storm is moving very slowly. for more on the storm's impact. we want to turn to cnn's matt rivers covering the story from hong kong. what are you hearing, matt? i know that news update was given by filipino authorities a short time ago. what are they saying? >> what we are hearing right now is that the majority of their nflgs information is evolving.
it's preliminary at this point. frankly, it's difficult for officials to make broad assessments of damage so far because, frankly, they're having trouble getting into all of the areas that are affected. we do know that flooding does seem to be getting worse as we speak because rivers in the northern part of this island are swelling. they are going over their banks. we've seen recents pictures showing just that. some of the information that was provided by the filipino disaster management agency, as it stands now, just over 15,000 people have used dozens of evacuation shelters that have been set up. they're staying inside those evacuation shelters in addition to another 1500 or so people who have gotten help from those shelters but may not be staying inside of them. we've also heard that three towns in the aurora province, one of the harder hit provinces in the northern part of this island, three towns in that area
have effectively been cut off from emergency crews because of landslides that have blocked some of the roadways that lead into those towns. that according to, again, the filipino disaster management agency. they have not reported any casualties as of yet. but that certainly is a figure that, while encouraging at the moment, could very well change once officials are able to access some of these towns. as far as infrastructure goes, in addition to the roads that cut off those three towns, there are 14 sections of roadway along with ten major bridges that officials have deemed impassable because of flooding and/orland slides. in addition, there are nine different provinces across the region reporting electricity outages as well as 40 different domestic flights -- 38 domestic flights and 2 international flights canceled. this storm making its impact
felt across the country in numerous ways. >> right, matt. this is just the first hours of this storm's impact. what will the next 48 to 72 hours likely bring? >> as you mentioned in the intro to this story, the storm is moving incredibly slowly. it's lingering over these islands. as you can imagine, the longer it stays put over the island, the longer it has to dump more and more rain on to the island. we've seen reports that locally we'll call for over a meter of rain over the next 48 to 72 hours. that's an incredible amount of rain and really difficult for any town or province to be able to withstand that kind of rainfall and not experience flooding. we're going to see flooding, we're going to see storm surge along the coastal areas, anywhere from 3 to 4 meters high. in addition to landslides. this is a mountainous area. and so between those three things, in addition to the wind damage that we've already seen,
certainly the extent of the damage could get far worse as we move forward in the next two to three days. >> matt rivers following up for us from hong kong. matt, thank you very much. let's turn to karen maginnis. as matt said and you said earlier, it's the rain and the threat to landslides with this mountainous area. he just said three towns we of have been cut off. >> that's not surprising given the strength as it made its way on shore. it has made landfall now for the last 16 hours. even before that, we were seeing bans of moderate to heavy precipitation and the strong wind. so when it slammed on shore as what would be the equivalent of a category 4 hurricane, it was supporting 215 kilometers per hour. just a few hours ago, when we were first looking at this in my time here, we saw the winds at
185 coil om terse per hour. now the latest information from the joint typhoon warning center says 160 kilometer per hour wind. we'll gradually see that chipped away. that will be the good news. the primary problem will be the rain. we're already seeing significant rainfall totals. this is moving towards the west at about 13 kilometers per hour. that's a little bit slower than what we were looking at a few hours ago. when it slammed on shore, some of the computer models were suggesting significant catastrophic flooding along some of these eastern coastal regions. now the computer models are saying more for the western coastal areas. generally speaking, 500, 1,000 millimeters, over a meter of rainfall, those are certainly very potentially the amounts that we'll expect. i just updated some of the rainfall totals we have across
the area. they are significant. remember, this has made landfall in the last 16 hours. about 1:00 a.m. local time in the philippines. this is locally known aslan dough. what do we expect? you can see not a lot of movement over the next several days. yes, it will be weaker, the winds will start to die down. the rainfall intensity will start to diminish as well. it is 2 days, 2 1/2, maybe 3 days worth of wet weather across the region that will have significant impact and the reason this is not moving very much is because we've got this huge ridge of high pressure. so now the system is strong enough to go underneath that ridge of high pressure. it's going to me app der here for a while, take the path of least resistance, move more toward the -- it's not going to gain intensity.
looks like it will be tropical storm intensity. boy, what a powerful impact it is going to be across lieu san and the steering current here. not as impactful as maybe a month ago, when we saw this ridge of high pressure not nearly as strong. natalie? >> thank you. we have reporters in the philippines. we'll be trying to make contact with them over the next hour to bring you the latest from the island. we want to turn to israel now. there's been more violence and finger pointing at tensions between israels and palestinians. israeli authorities say palestinians carried out five knife attacks on saturday in hebron, jerusalem and ka land i can't. the attackers were killed in four of the five incidents. the condition of one alleged attacker is unclear. the israel defense forces say the intended victims were police, soldiers and civilians. but at the same time,
palestinia palestinians, israelis are coming together, calling for an end to this latest violence. they marched through the streets of jerusalem in a joint peace rally saturday. they're saying dialog, talking is the answer. >> we have to talk. we have to start communicating with each other. so we will have a true solution. we have to do it for our sake, for our children's sake, the israel sake and the palestinian side, same. >> when people are willing to come to the street and say this is worth my saturday night, the future is worth it, my children and their children and our collective children are worth my saturday night, that gives me hope. that doesn't happen every day. >> since the start of october, israeli officials say search israelis have been killed and attacked by palestinians. the palestinians spokesman said almost 4 dozen have died in gaza and the west bank. despite the calls for peace,
there is a significant security issue ongoing in israel. senior international correspondent ben wedeman with the latest live for us in jerusalem. >> reporter: good morning, natalie. the measures proposed after the knife attacks continue to be in place. they're being tightened. what you see behind me, for instance, right here, this is one. roads leading to the east jerusalem neighborhood of ice we a, palestinian neighborhood. since several days ago these concrete blocks have been placed across the road. anyone passing through certainly young males in this intans, has to be checked. they need to raise their t-shirts, show that they don't have any weapons on them. of course, this is one of the sources of continuing resentment by the palestinians against israel ace 48-year occupation.
i spoke to one man this morning and he said it lies heavily on our chest, indicative of sort of the -- this was an older man who lived in the israeli occupation from the beginning. there you see a man raising his t-shirt, turning around and now they're going to ask him to put his legs up to show that he doesn't have any weapons. emptying his pockets. of course, keep in mind that these are not residents of the west bank. these are residents of the city of jerusalem. under normal circumstances, they would be free to move back and forth. but the city that israel has boasted as the united city clearly at the moment, a city very, very divided. natalie? >> we're seeing the example of exactly what the people there are having to endure with this heightened security. so mean tile, bigger picture, ben, what are the leaders there and what are world leaders
watching this saying about this latest state of violence? >> reporter: we heard, for instance, president barack obama calling for the violence to be tamped down. interestingly, in his white house remarks the other day, he essentially said that at this point we don't know about actually resolving the conflict that the united states, its resolution has invested so much time and energy. when you talk about the u.s. administration, keep in mind that there's a lot of bitterness after the experience, the disagreements, the very sharp public disagreements between israel and the united states on the iran nuclear deal. so the administration may not be particularly eager to come to the aid of benjamin netanyahu, the israeli prime minister at this point. what we're seeing is on both sides mixed signals. israeli prime minister benjamin
netanyahu saying he's ready to sit down with the palestinian president, mahmoud abbas and discuss ways to diffuse this current flare-up. significantly, what's not being discussed is ways to diffuse the causes of this conflict which have stumped american and other diplomats for generations. what i think we can expect is perhaps this current flare-up will down, things will return to normal. but there will be other flare-ups for years and years to chom in the absence of a real resolution. natalie? >> understood. thank you so much, ben wedeman for us live at a security checkpoint in jerusalem. a leaded candidate for mayor of cologne germany is in stable condition after a bizarre attack out campaigning. an attacker came up and stabbed the woman while she was campaigning at a market. the suspect told police he targeted her for her work with refugees. of all the countries in europe,
germany has taken the most refugees and migrants. the election will go ahead sunday as planned. she's in stable condition, again. of the latest migrant crisis, thousands of refugees have reached slovenia after hungary closed its border. they're allowed to enter with two border crossings were croatia. also deployed its army with a dream of people. angela merkel will meet with top turkish officials to discuss the ongoing crisis. united nations secretary ban ki-moon is calling for people to get together to get the migrant crisis under control. he and his wife visited a catholic community which works with migrants and refugees and the u.n. chief is himself a refugee. he reminded people of his story. he told it to children at the
shelter. his south korean village was bombed during the war in 1950 and forced him to flee at the age of 6. while thousands of refugees flee the middle east, others are also leaving their african nations for a safer place. in kenya, there's the largest refugee camp in the world. more than 300,000 somalis live there, according to the u.n. david mckenzie gives us a look at life in this refugee camp and the worries over whether there's an end to their safe-haven. >> we're in northern kenya on the border of somali. we have come here many times over the years. the last time was in 2011, during the somali min famine. dust and dirt flying through this area. this is the place that they say
they've come to escape to. this pace is more than 300,000 people. many people in this camp have been born here or been here more than 20 years. you have three generations of refugees. one of the hardest things is to get a perspective on this enormous set of cam presidents here. it's so flat course to the border with somali. the best way for us has usually been to go up a water tank. wow. this thing is super high. it's just like a city bigger than any kenyan city in this part of northern kenya. you really get a sense of how attract -- how the situation is. this is one of the oldest camps. you can see that the structures feel a bit more permanent. but do you know they're not actually allowed to permanent
housing here. get plumbing or anything like that because the kenyan government wants to treat the situation like a temporary situation. though they have schools and they have places for children to learn, they aren't like the rest of kenya. it seems to me like they are limited solutions for these people who the kenyan government and who i would love to move back to somalia if they could, they feel under pressure that they might have to leave but don't want to go. >> so that's one side of a disastrous refugee story from kenya. we continue here with all eyes on the united states on joe biden as far as the presidential race. the question is, whether the vice president finally become a candidate? we'll tell you what top democrats are saying next. from the republican side, jeb push calls donald trump pathetic. what caused the twitter war

bounty is two times more absorbent. more "sit" per roll. so one roll of bounty can last longer than those bargain brands. so you get more "life" per roll. bounty. the long-lasting quicker picker upper. all right. well, the big question looming over u.s. politics on the democratic side has been for some time, will joe biden run for president? the vice president received a
human rights award saturday night sponsored by the greek orthodox church. after his speech, shouts of run joe run were in the crowd. he has to make a decision and soon. jim acosta with the latest on the biden story. >> it's the big question all over washington. will he or won't he? when joe biden's political future came up in the oval office, the vice president was just a few feet away listening with his lips sealed. president obama later brushed off the question. >> i'm not going to comment on what joe's doing or not doing. i think you can direct those questions to my very able vice president. >> but a decision appears to be coming soon, so says biden former senate chief of staff ted kaufman. i am can have debit that the vice president is aware of the practical demands of making a
final decision soon. kaufman described what a biden campaign would be like. in other words -- >> they're going to put y'all back in chains. >> lots of biden being biden. >> i think it's fair to say knowing him as we all do, it won't be a scripted affair. after all, it's joe. but democrats are all but begging biden to hurry as one senior party official put it, if the silence goes into next week, friends think the decision is made for him. hillary clinton is practically pushing herself in this interview with cnn's jake tapper. >> a decision has to be made. but certainly i'm not in any way suggesting or recommending that the vice president accept any timetable other than the one that is clicking inside of him. he has to make this decision. plus, the longer biden waits, the more it hurts. the latest poll in new hampshire shows clinton and rival bernie sanders way out in front of the vice president. when democratic voters were asked if biden should enter the race, half said no. >> i think he knows this is
d-day and he's got to make a decision. a lot of people are waiting. people who really care about him and want to help him are waiting too. so he needs to move on there. >> democrats are starting to compare biden's lengthy deliberations to those of the late new york governor mario cuomo who had a plane on a tarmac waiting to take him to new hampshire in 1992. but cuomo pulled back at the last minute and a clinton went on to be president. a top democratic source tells cnn that biden's inner circle has indicated a decision could come in the next few days. on the other side, republican front-runner donald trump has sworn off traditional campaign fundraising, but he's still raking in millions from unsolicited donation. he's spending that cash in unexpected ways as we learn from
joe jon. >> i put together some really impressive deals. but this thing you've pulled off, it's amazing. a big and tasty for just a dollar. >> donald trump did this ad for mcdonald's more than a decade ago. little has changed. he forked over $458 at the golden arches. $1302 at home depot to $723,000 on jets and helicopters he already owns. in all this quarter, he spent $4.2 million. he did not solicit any donations but he got $3.9 million in donations from 74,000 people. he can close the deficit whenever he wants. >> i'm really rich. >> dropping millions of his own cash into the campaign. but rivals are not so lucky. many in the huge field struggling to raise money and spending it like crazy. according to newly released documents, jeb bush raised $13.4
million in the last quarter. sounds good until you hear he spend $11.5 million. as we discovered his campaign spending 26,000 d at miami's luxury biltmore hotel and also staying at holiday inn. the republican candidate who raised the most, ben carson. like trump, a political outsider. carson's total was almost $21 million. he spent about $14 million. one of his biggest expenses, $1.4 million on fundraising calls. calls that some gop candidates can't afford to make. five of the republican candidates didn't raise that much cash in total. the remaining gop candidates might want to take a page from the trump checkbook. >> i get them a mcdonald's hamburger. >> besides the speed with which the candidates are burning through the money they raise which influences how much more money their donors can give them, the amount of cash on hand tells you something about the
financial health of their campaign. kentucky senator rand paul and new jersey governor chris christie both had less than $2 million on hand at the end of the reporting period. that's not good news for them. >> staggering the money that some camps have and that others are lacking. donald trump and jeb bush are trading barbs once again. republican presidential candidate jeb bush released a two-minute video saturday mocking trump's fitness to lead the military as commander in chief. this comes after trump suggested bush's brother, former president george w. bush shared in the blame for the 9/11 terror attacks. jeb bush will be speaking with cnn's jake tapper on state the union later this morning and the full interview with hillary clinton. that's coming up at 2:00 p.m. in london, 3:00 p.m. in berlin right here on cnn. egyptians head to the polls

here at this polling station, we've seen a steady stream of people going in. there was a bit of a queue earlier this morning. the election goes over the next two days, going into tomorrow. they didn't cancel work so people are likely to come once they get off of work. what we're hearing from people a lot about security here. egypt does have that insurgency that has been deadly. a lot of people wanting a secure egypt moving forward and there has been a lot of security at these polling stations as well. over 300,000 security members of the security force, including the army and the police are securing the roughly 19,000 polling stations. kind of give you an idea of the scale of this election and this is only half of the country voting today. half the eligible voters.
27 million people. so a big undertaking. but a lot of people so far not really seeing a lot of people. >> right. ian, we know that the voter fatigue is because they've had many elections in the past few years but also it speaks to the conditions in egypt since arab spring and the hopes for people that were really hopeful for serious change in the country that perhaps has not happened. >> reporter: it's interesting, natalie, being in tahrir square talking to people and hearing the reasons why they protested in 2011, we're hearing a lot of the same things from people today. they want better education, they want better health care and they want jobs, too. over the past four or five years since that revolution, things really haven't picked up. there has been a lot of
political change back in 2013. the army overthrew then president mohamed morsi. this election today is the final step in that -- stage in that roadmap, that transition where they will back to having a fully operational government. but talking to a lot of people, they are disillusioned by that there hasn't been a lot of progress and there is hope that parliament can, but then again talking to people, there's a lot of disillusioned people out there. >> it also comes down to health care, jobs and education. all right. ian lee for us there in egypt. we'll talk with you again as the day presses on. thank you, ian. president won president much guinea on saturday. he garnered 58% of the vote avoiding a runoff that many experts predicted. the main opposition does not recognize the vote and is asking his supporters to protest

"to target the u.s. personnel for attacks and violence." >> how dangerous is this
20-year-old alleged hacker? >> in terms of effort, with the right amount of money and ideological commitment and enough time on your hands, you can pull something like that off. they said they will commit themselves to battling. >> after he hacked the u.s. service members' data, ferizi gave it to the notorious head of isis' hacking division killed recently in a u.s. drone strike. hussein is said to have instigated this attack. the foiled attempt to shoot up a prophet mohammed contest in texas. the kill list was published online this summer. crusaders noah that we are in your e-mails and watching and recording your every move and that isis operatives will strike in your own lands next.
>> this drives people to follow-up on this information. maybe it will get a hit on someone, maybe it won't. it also does really freak out u.s. government, military and law enforcement personnel. >> cnn attempted to reach dozens of people on the kill list. some e-mails downs bounced back as old addresses. others went through. one retired serviceman confirmed to us the phone number for him on the list was accurate. he said the pentagon alerted him. a u.s. military official tells cnn so far they have no indication any u.s. service members have been attacked. but analysts warn there are more isis hackers out there. >> western europe, england, france germany or in malaysia like mr. ferizi. >> a relative of the accused attacker ardit ferizi is skeptical of the charges. the relative who didn't want to be named says ferizi recently planned to return home from malaysia and that he suffers

i think it's one of the great spectacles in rugby. people say are you scared facing the haka? you go if you're scared facing that, there's no point in playing the game. for me, it's a challenge. if you challenge me, then fine, you know, let's play. i think it's great. >> for me personally, it was more about us in terms of new zealand and our indigenous people, the people that have gone before us that bore this amazing jersey. coming together as one to hopefully defeat the opposition. as we say, it was a great way to start work. >> it's huge here in new zealand. it's reflected through performing the haka which we do before every game, which is something very special to new
