11:06 am
locations including where you can see behind me here a makeshift camp ground on the sidelines of a wal-mart parking lot they've made a little community here and they're just trying to get by and figure out their next steps and we've talked a lot of those evacuees earlier in the day now i want to talk to some volunteers because we've seen a lot of volunteers coming out as well the community really pulling together to try to help people survive the situation and figure out their next steps i'm joined by the yemen american association of the bay area you guys drove a long way this is iraq men you guys drove several hours to be here right what is it that made you want to come out and help today yes we did we got up at like six in the morning and got the yemeni american so she asian together and we wanted to do our part for the this beautiful country you know we've been hearing about it on the news and we went on ahead this whole week and got the yemeni community together
11:07 am
gathered up about five hundred brand new blankets thermals clothes and that's why we're out here we registered this morning it took about four hours to get registered after we got registered they said we cannot help at the fire site until they finish their investigations or whatnot so they sent us to the salvation army salvation i think it's our media and what we did over there is we helped bring in the clothes in the donations that people were bringing in and dividing up throughout the warehouse and that was a great experience for all of us so now we want to distribute what we have in our truck to people that are in need of it so that's the whole thing we want to help the community absolutely and however you have been talking to people and what have you been seeing what's your reaction to even seeing and people been going through what we have talked to quite a few people and it's everybody has a sad story and i mean we wish we can help everybody we're going to try and do what we can we're planning on coming back in the next couple days when. they do call us back we have fifty people registered already twenty five stayed and hopefully
11:08 am
tomorrow or the next day when we get a call we'll be ready to whatever it is they need from us we're willing to do that's great and interesting you're telling me that in the san francisco area even though this fire obviously the people here are just you know i've lost so much but even in san francisco you're feeling the smoke and what's the what's the environment like right you know we thought there'd be more smoke out here when we got out here but we have more smoke in the bear area than out here i guess it's blowing towards the bay and it's bad out here but not as bad as the bay area at this time so yes you know you can smell it in the air for our viewers you can taste it feel it in your throat it's actually another concern for everyone who lives in this area because of the bad air quality it says concern for people with respiratory problems and so on a lot for people to worry about to consider fema the federal emergency management association has come to the scene as well people are starting to register with them to think about where they can get permanent housing moving forward and that is
11:09 am
really the pressing question that is facing this community now even as they try to contain this fire further it's mostly contained fifty five percent contained away from population areas but still burning those recovery efforts as i mentioned still going on but the next step that they are going to have to deal with is just where all these people are going to go for permanent housing. still ahead on al-jazeera where the mexican border city of tijuana where a massive caravan of central american migrants has come to a home. and facing hate from all sides hollywood appears to be out of the columbia's president one hundred days after taking office. had of that unexpectedly deep snow in the northeast may have melted little bits and
11:10 am
temperatures risen and snow more much more at least to come but the cold hasn't gone away this is all cold air and this is not system a barrier between the two which quite often means only more snow to fall well yes across the plains states are running out to maybe the northern ohio valley but not much in it the temps are still different but we're above freezing at least chicago if not in minneapolis and down in dallas and atlanta are up in the teens so the division still exists west coast well there's not much the way of tribe but the breeze is no longer blowing at the interior chief anything is slightly good news taking you had to monday now and the pictures to live a little bit is no foregone the high ground maybe otherwise temperature cover-up into ten or above new york or washington south of all this and this is the active line of cloud showers have been falling in cuba in the bahamas and particularly down in honduras that line still exists and hunters will get another bit of a pasting and for anywhere down towards panama could well see some potentially very
11:11 am
wet weather over the next day or so to give that we've seen over one hundred million meters in honduras repeat that in costa rica and panama some flooding. on counting the cost the breaks it end game there's a complicated draw deal on the table we'll break it down and tell me what it means for people living in the u.k. and the e.u. plus why saudi arabia wants to slam the brakes on oil production. counting the cost on al-jazeera. ultimately it's the opportunity to understand a very different way before things happens and we don't need.
