a. at least two people killed actually in its wake fifty three people now confirmed to have died in the philippines it's been an incredibly destructive storm and so preparations have been made in china accordingly in the province hundreds of thousands of homes have been evacuated two million people are being given shelter fifty thousand fishing boats have been recalled to port all because mankind is carrying winds of one hundred eighty five kilometers an hour with torrential downpours it is looking like this year's worst storm here's where the typhoon is right now actually here is where it was earlier on sunday and i'm going to run the animation from here and you'll see as it moves closer towards land hits the land does start to lose a bit of strength and break up a little bit and that has it's well there is the forecast into monday now where it would have dissipated by then but the amount of rain it would have brought and well i'm told destruction at this point that is what we're waiting to see in china before reaching china though it was hong kong's turn and sara clock was there for
6:03 pm
us. the eye of the typhoon herschel towards hong kong bringing with it down force winds of up to two hundred kilometers an hour roofs were blown off and windows in some high rise buildings were blown out trees were sent flying this crime was ripped from the building and collapsed this is amazing never seen the like this it's it's eerie to see hong kong nobody walking around roads were closed and businesses locked up hundreds of people were evacuated from their homes in low lying areas with nine hundred flights were canceled interrupting travel plans for thousands of passengers most people bunkered down and stayed indoors some of those who braved the weather was swept off their feet the city was paralyzed and forced into lockdown by the worst storm in hong kong for more than a decade old home is prone to still events and type things but this one has caught many by surprise the strength of the winds history could shoot swells across the harbor. in diving it is in the sense of lots of the season. these waterfront hotels
6:04 pm
were flooded as wives pounded the coastline the only movement on the harbor was this ship adrift all schools will be closed on monday the typhoon is now headed towards mainland china. directly in its path. al-jazeera hong kong. and in addition to everything on the ground or healer problems in the air there's a lot of conversation about online as well kemal typhoon monkhood is actually trending in southeast asia people are documenting the destruction around them and posting it all online it's become a nightmare especially for travelers cathay pacific and cathay dragon canceled all flights in and out of hong kong on sunday with winds reaching one hundred fifty kilometers an hour and lines before the council one thousand two hundred flights out of hong kong and this is what it looks like when you're the only one that's an airport burns took this picture of a check in counter at hong kong international airport earlier we spoke to him he's
6:05 pm
trying to get to the philippines but is just camping out now waiting for the storm to pass. i'm here from the airport and then my flight was kind said yesterday he said trying to book myself you know what though but i feel yeah it's almost certain for people and it's quite. weird here in hong kong and they're very. and for me. and come on here in hong kong it's a baby easy airport but now it's. like a ghost town. while i want to play on saturday cathay pacific flew its first airbus a three fifty to dulles airport in washington d.c. it is the longest route ever a fifteen hour journey now that same plane is stuck there because of the storm a cow they said is expecting a gradual return to normal flight operations starting on monday subject of course
6:06 pm
to weather conditions and we spoke to alex smith charis an airline analyst he's actually in china stuck there because of the typhoon here's what he had to say but a thai food such as this is a kind of harsh reminder that no matter what airlines have in mind mother nature will always dictate as to how smoothly the process of flying in to travel will run here in grand shower this is one of the busiest ports in china and we're very close to also hit by the typhoon hong kong and the skies have been absolutely empty and the reason that's significant is because these are two airports that would typically be home to a mass number of flights each hour a combination of passenger and of course cargo given that here in grange as one of the largest exporters for china. there is a much can do for passengers they have to wait for airlines they have to wait and notably the safety is always the number one priority and ultimately everybody
6:07 pm
myself included we're just playing the waiting game when if your flight has been impacted by the typhoon to let us know which any of these top forms use the hash tag aging is great thanks airports actually not the only things closed down for the first time ever the government in nearby macau has closed all the casinos and that's basically the whole economy right there the city issued its highest storm alert on sunday last year officials were criticized for how they handle a typhoon which actually killed twelve people. but backtrack a bit now look at the philippines people are just trying to assess the damage that monk has left in its wake and as we mentioned at least fifty three people killed and that death toll is expected to rise others are still missing and thirty miners are believed to be trapped under a lang slide in calgary and province that is where jamil and organise. to witness for ourselves the strength and scale of thankful monk which devastation into ghent province we jus northeast this is the town of where hundreds of civilians were
6:08 pm
evacuated from their homes days before the typhoon hit landfall. learned the end her eighty three year old grandmother passed left their house of forty eight hours before the storm struck they survived but now they're afraid to go home. to be poor is to stouffer we're just corn farmers and now we have lost our home to we have to borrow from creditors now just so we can start over. farmlands and now submerged in flood waters schools used as evacuation centers are also damaged. we drove further to reach the town of get around this is what's left of cornfields here a few hours of a typhoon took a year of their earnings a painful for farmers here super typhoon monk a battered much of northern luzon leaving a trail of diff and destruction. across the
6:09 pm
gun power and communication lines have been destroyed leaving many farming communities isolated after several hours we reached the town. he took two years for jason and linda lean on to build just the frame of their home but it's all gone in an instant and. it hurts to see this because just to recover what we lost we have to make painful sacrifices again indigenous comanches like this one have been living in abject poverty for generations and they are held back even further by natural disasters that is because the government assistance they need to start over is barely enough farming is their livelihood now they don't know how they can survive their story is one that's repeated a hundred times and more the damage into the province is extensive. what we've
6:10 pm
just seen so far is just a fraction of the devastation by footman couetise caused the full extent will become known in the coming days. jim duggan al jazeera cook in providence northern philippines as mentioned before you should get in touch with us as well contact details coming up on screen right now as are just looking at the live stream at facebook dot com slash al-jazeera lots of you sending prayers for people in china and hong kong in the philippines a lot of that coming from the usa and actually who was it stephanie who's watching on facebook life facebook dot com slash al-jazeera has said american media isn't even mentioning this typhoon because of course we have a hurricane here in the carolinas which leads us on of course to the latest from the u.s. east coast where what was hurricane florence has now been downgraded to tropical depression florence but don't let the name change make you think the danger is gone away storm categories are usually to do with wind speeds the problem with florence
6:11 pm
is the amount of rain it is bringing here is an update from the al-jazeera online team. fresh warmer. don't drive. on moving water. this is one major source of concern the cape fear river meteorologist predict that it could reach flood levels as soon as sunday morning crafting three days later and
6:12 pm
the flood waters they could linger for a week. villa north carolina now a christian. christian you probably actually heard yourself just briefly there a little clip of you in that social video we were playing and actually what i was looking at there was that the water levels behind you it looks like that has come up a lot in just twenty four hours. absolutely we are standing a little ways away from that same location and the water levels have just risen tremendously yesterday we were standing down there where it's all flooded we've
6:13 pm
been able to just watch the water rise before our very eyes in the last twenty four hours the rain has been so relentless here in fayetteville and across much of north carolina it started two days ago but for the last twenty four hours it's been really pounding and driving and of course that's what has officials concerned they're worried about flooding and along the cape fear river here anyone who lives within a mile of it as well as another river called little river they've been asked to evacuate in the next couple of hours of course the issue is roads are already getting flooded the governor of north carolina says every road in the state is pretty much at risk of flooding at this point you can't take anything for granted some major highways have portions of them shut down so getting anywhere is tricky but if you live near the rivers authorities are warning that's what you need to do you need to take precautions and to get out of the way there's one hundred fifty seven shelters open statewide last i heard twenty thousand people were taking advantage of that and that doesn't include all the people who want to stay with
6:14 pm
family and friends who live in high ground or are saying in hotels as well. the concern again is just how long this is going to be here and people getting complacent and not wanting to leave their home because it as much as a bad rainstorm it feels like a rainstorm but those river right levels are really rising and rising quickly and then he told her when relief might be insights kristen as to when that rain might seize up. well even here in the fayetteville area they're saying the worst of the rain should be over by this evening with lingering showers perhaps into the next day or two but as the stair storm moves westward you know it's going to continuing to pour rain there are more evacuations are being called in other counties farther inland and all of that water is feeding these streams and sending the water rushing down to areas like this so it's going to be a couple days authorities again urging people to be very cautious just because of the unpredictable nature of where things are going preston i've said it before
6:15 pm
yourself inside and some shelter christine from me live in fayetteville in north carolina don't forget as well the weather page down to zero dot com older news on monk on florence on whichever of the storm forms next plus geotagging as well will give you the weather in your part of the world automatically click the more venue at the top of the more bottom of the top the weather was right down the end of the drop down menu what's just like that now the un's envoy to yemen has arrived in the capital sanaa and meet leading hooty rebels off to talks aimed at ending yemen's three naafi a war collapsed before they even began last week while the rebels and show up i blamed the saudi led coalition with banks the government saying it stopped them from traveling griffiths is hoping to get the talks back on track but he landed just as a new wave of coalition air strikes was actually launched targeting hooty positions
6:16 pm
in a data province. in fact these reporting more than thirty five a strike since early sunday morning the coalition saudi iraqi coalition jets have been targeting what's known as sixteen the highway which heads east out of the red sea port one of the main supply routes to the capital sanaa which is a stronghold we've got andrew symonds he's in djibouti over the straight from the data covering events for us what do you take us through first of all martin griffiths coming back to sanaa today. well here's arrival here it is was met with some level of cheer might say by the who thing is now feel engaged with some sort of process whether that process will be successful or not remains to be seen the difference now is that there is a member a memorandum of understanding signed by the un the martin group this happened
6:17 pm
before margaret has got into santa and that actually suggests that there will be not only suggesting more or less guarantees that there will be transportation by as for injured people whether they're fighters or civilians we're not sure of but they will be transported over a six month period to cairo that is the reports and the location cairo the capital of egypt that's a change from the original plan which was to go to a man who are mediators in the whole crisis so there you have a development but whether that's going to amount to something that will push the leadership of the earth is to actually start talking in directly with the yemeni government and also the coalition indirectly unsure at this stage and then this well i think the herd is upset about thirty five air strikes they're saying on this supply road between data and somehow this is important obviously any supply route
6:18 pm
is important but it takes on great humanitarian issues as well about getting aid in and throughout the country. it most certainly does this just look at the escalation of the fighting you mentioned thirty five asteroids that was over a period of three hours now the number is much higher in fact there is a report that the radio station the main who theory radio station in her data was hit by an airstrike four dead according to the huth is one of them a staff member of the radio station the other security guards the saudi sources military sources suggest that the there were only three deaths and they are also claiming that the saudis that the report from the world food programme about silos major grain silos being hit by the coalition are wrong that there is in fact really a plot going on and the site is
6:19 pm
a claim in the huth is actually. fired at the silos themselves it isn't clear what the truth is in this as there isn't any real clarification because we haven't got any neutral observers on the ground other reports of civilian deaths outside their data but there is no doubt about the escalation of this conflict the dilemma for all concerned because it isn't just on the battlefields where people are dying anyone trying to bring peace to yemen may not need reminding of what's at stake nevertheless those without a voice of influence are crying out loud for her. one hundred sixty kilometers from her data they try to keep babies alive malnutrition could potentially soon be the biggest killer in this conflict nearby families are eating wild vine leaves to survive. we cook tree leaves we have no nutrition we will
6:20 pm
die here we have no one god. i mean personally i don't you believe but since my salary has been cut it's only mean mean for my children even though these cars in each us in drowsiness but what can we do. in her data the fighting has taken another quantum leap as saudi led coalition forces and government troops on the ground continue their campaign to cut all supply lines from the red sea port the saudis are accusing who the fighters of opening fire on grain silos in order to claim it was the coalition that's responsible whoever did watch the u.n. pressure to stop the fighting has never been greater the u.n. special envoy martin growth this is now in the capital center for talks with the leadership what may help him is a memorandum of understanding signed by the un which gives safe passage by for injured who's these needing medical treatment it's reported they'll go to cairo in
6:21 pm
egypt but is this enough to get dialogue going even though the number of civilian deaths is still rising there is a coalition diplomatic initiative trying to convince the u.n. that her data has to be taken for the huth is to be pressurised to talk peace this conflict is now a lethal mix a very ng motivation for diplomacy fighting and suffering no one would predict the outcome sami handy with us now editor in chief of the international interest joining us from london let's. start with the strategic side of things the fighting that we've seen the air strikes on this supply road between her data and this could be quite crucial couldn't going forward for the who. i think it could be quite crucial but we have to remember and understand that the way the conflict has gone
6:22 pm
so far the conduct of the arab coalition of the saudi and u.a.e. airstrikes has caused incredible damage to the infrastructure of yemen and it's been quite chaotic considering an army that by so many weapons from the u.s. and claims to have so many expert military advisers so the reason why i think it is fundamental is not simply because it could potentially cut the supply lines for the policies but because it means even more damage to the infrastructure in yemen and also damaging a vital supply line for any future government between data and sun our for any government that ends up ruling in the sun i have the supply line is very important we have to remember that the only reason to who these have been able to survive so far is two chapters the first chapter was because of the former president ali abdullah saleh who was able to give to the whole thing is a lot of the heavy weaponry that was in the yemeni army through his own links and his own context and secondly through logistical supply coming in via air for it to work towards santa but also to coming through data through the ports going to sign up and allowing them to quit their fighters to continue the fighting so it's
6:23 pm
a vital part but i don't think we should exaggerate its particular importance the arabs want to our coalition want to take back her data and that is the main threat they want to cut the supply line not just going towards an hour but also going towards for data preventing any resources from sun up going to her data to prevent the hutus from mounting a defensive let's talk about the diplomatic side of things and griffiths is in sanaa again i mean what a job he has completely failed last time the talks in geneva is there any reason to think that he can make some sort of breakthrough. i think the biggest issue is that when you look at the dynamics on the ground there is nothing to suggest that any of the parties are ready to sit down for peace who doesn't want to give up any of the military gains that he's made particularly the capital he wants to insist on holding the capital and holding her data because it means that any conditions that are made on the table will allow them to have a greater say or a greater stake in any future government who doesn't want to actually rule yemen
6:24 pm
who wants to be like it has been a lot of lebanon it wants to be the main political power behind the scenes the part of the arab coalition is that to go to the negotiating table now essentially means defeat because they cannot dictate the terms they've been unable to defeat the whole things militarily in key strategic points so they would have to see these particular conditions to the goofy's but for the neutral the problem is even worse because for the neutral the problem is this if you're ford who through concessions while he is still in summer and while he is still in her day then while he is still in joe phenomena and these other cities even if you have peace even if you have a government that comes about in which he has the greatest state there is nothing stopping islam or the southern separatists from studying the whole thing model taking over a few cities surviving a bombing campaign from say iran or russia or whoever and then the un coming in once more giving concessions a new government with them having the highest state the problem with yemen is this it's a balance between trying to solve the humanitarian crisis and defending the principle
6:25 pm
of a national dialogue that came to an agreement over a government do you protect that democratic style of coming to an agreement over a government or do you stop the humanitarian crisis at any cost this is the catch twenty two with yemen this is why it's such a horrific and such a terrible conflict because there is no easy solution either way moreover even if you look at the emmen everybody likes to talk about it as a binary between the arab coalition and between the horses now but there are many people who sided with naive or they don't agree with and they despise the incredible damage that saudi arabia has done with the u.a.e. anybody who believe. that saudi arabia has good intentions for yemen is living in a whimsical world this saudi arabia remember it supported the movement against the united yemen in one thousand nine hundred four the saudis then propped up by the assad and supported him in yemen in the government and later on after they realize that they had failed rowdies not a friend to yemen but those whose views also have conducted the military coup so
6:26 pm
either way your between a rock and a hard place in yemen and largely in yemen will not be able to find a breakthrough unless there's a change in the military dynamic incredibly complex and i'm glad you could explain some of it to us joining us from london and while we're talking yemen al jazeera is contrast via the one behind a live virtual in or granted reality content is actually just won an award for their three sixty degree glimpse at life in yemen are they one the online news association award for excellence in most of storytelling for this let me see if i can bring it up he had the video which is called yemen's skies of terror it's told from the perspective of a child and two teenagers taking you through three different years of airstrikes and it's all filmed by journalists with three hundred sixty two cameras in fact if you look at me just now you'll see i'm holding up my i pad and actually i can watch it in sort of three sixty light that i think it's probably better with the mosque but you don't have to you can use your i pad or you computer that's a video link and it was tweeted out by jane which is well at a.j.
6:27 pm
english and you can find it on our web site out to zero dot com and thank you for getting in touch with a funny one sam he was talking quite a high volume of really quite passionate sort of messages about yemen naomi just said god have mercy yes seems it please put an end to this absurd war and elizabeth said is this going to end how are people ok with prolonging war and yemen and what can we do to make this in because governments clearly don't care what your thoughts coming in the questions the comments the hash tag a j use grid this is the news good and hello to all our viewers on facebook live you've got a bonus a.j. plus story coming your way now about a group in finland trying to stop. the project that would connect. to the arctic and then later the portuguese conquered malaysia in the fifteenth century they left behind a rare relic a language it's called my luck and portuguese and only three thousand people can speak it fluently we're going to meet one woman trying to keep it alive.
