5:03 pm
possibly historic amounts of rainfall in its wake. dramatic scenes as the leading edge of hurricane florence reaches the north carolina coast. rain and winds pummelled barrier islands exposed to the atlantic. this huge slow—moving storm is now so wide it is threatening the south—east coast of the united states and the carolinas to georgia. the governor of north carolina ones that conditions are only going to deteriorate. people in land could be threatened to. the storm is wreaking havoc and our state and we are deeply concerned for farms state and we are deeply concerned forfarms and state and we are deeply concerned for farms and businesses, state and we are deeply concerned forfarms and businesses, for schools and even whole communities which could be wiped away. there are fears that millions could be without power across the coastal south—east of the united states as the triple hazard of hurricane force winds and
5:04 pm
storm surge and flooding become a reality. many fled their homes seeking shelter in evacuation centres on land. the vulnerable elderly to the very young. while most people in mandatory evacuation zones most people in mandatory evacuation zones have left some are determined to see out the storm. my family and eve ryo ne to see out the storm. my family and everyone has evacuated pretty much except for my wife and i. but we are setting up crews now to deal with the aftermath which may take weeks. the track of hurricane when it makes la ndfall the track of hurricane when it makes landfall is uncertain but a sustained and damaging result of the coastline from wind and water is intensifying. and it is not the wind thatis intensifying. and it is not the wind that is the biggest threat from the storm. just look at the river at cape fear behind me. we're told it is not expected to actually crest until tuesday because of all the rainfall so that means we may not
5:05 pm
even see the worst the flooding until tuesday. the millions of people in the of the storm are braced for whatever it may bring. one of the most accurate, and turbulent, ways of collecting hurricane data is from the air. our correspondent nada tawfik has been on board a us air force reconnaissance plane which gathers storm data. the radio times can be bumpy because we're heading up against winds of over 100 miles an hour. we are flying through hurricane florence and you can see there is zero visibility. in fact, the ride at times can be quite bumpy because we are hitting up against winds over 100 mph. we are on a cargo plane outfitted with the latest weather equipment. it is a kind of laboratory. we are here with hurricane hunters from the us air force reserve and these pilots and scientists have
5:06 pm
been flying around the clock since monday. really trying to get the information that has been so vital to determine the storm's next move. not only is the plane outfitted with sensors but they also drop sensors during flight and this is because satellite imagery does not give an accurate picture of the storm. that information gets sent to the national hurricane centre every ten minutes and as long as there is a hurricane threat they will continue this mission. there's a major storm on the other side of the world as well. hundreds of thousands of people are having to leave their homes on luzon in the philippines, as typhoon mangkhut approaches with winds of more than 160 miles an hour. the typhoon is due to make landfall on the north of the main island over the weekend. alexandra mckenzie has the latest. 5 million people are thought to be in the direct path of this potential deadly storm.

5:08 pm
floods and landslides, with extensive damage expected to infrastructure and crops. and people are seeking refuge where ever they can. some families have come to this makeshift evacuation centre. they hope they have found a place of safety, away from the worst of what's been described as a supertyphoon. with me is our weather presenter, ben rich. it does seem particularly dramatic. we saw laura on this coast. she has been reporting all day and various

states of being born about by the wind. —— blown. the steady winds are about 80 mph and the gusts are stronger than that. this is a satellite picture from a little earlier on showing how the storm is approaching the coastline. it has made landfall officially at around quarter past 12 hour time today. it is the early morning at that time. the real problem with the storm is it is slow—moving. it is going to keep on winning. this is the recent radar picture and it will keep on winning like this for many hours. —— keep on raining. this is a swirl and others a hole in the middle of this world which is the eye of the storm moving at about three or four miles per hour down the coastline at walking pace. those parts particularly at the moment of north
5:10 pm
carolina containing to see that heavy rain and as address very slowly, painstakingly slow, southwards, it will be south carolina that feels the brunt of the heavy and prolonged rainfall. such intense rainfall. in the philippines it is not made landfall yet but we need to watch this weekend. it is not made landfall yet but we need to watch this weekendm it is not made landfall yet but we need to watch this weekend. it is making landfall very soon in the next two hours during this evening. we can have a look at it, i think. take a look at a satellite picture of where the typing is headed. even afrikaans, it is headed towards the north of the philippines, and it will give the sustained winds at the centre of the storm around 130 mph. —— even if we can't. it is a stronger storm than florence. it will move through quickly with exceptionally strong winds and very heavy rain with three are a hundred
5:11 pm
—— with heavy rain with three are a hundred -- with 300 400 heavy rain with three are a hundred —— with 300 400 millimetres of rain and then it is on the way towards china. what should we read into the fight we have these extraordinary weather patterns in different parts of the globe at the same time?m weather patterns in different parts of the globe at the same time? it is that time of year. the atlantic are picking season —— atlantic hurricane for this into a false sense of security because it was a very quiet start but the hurricane doors into — goes start but the hurricane doors into —— goes into september. itjust happens we are these two major star was making landfall within hours of each other. domestic weather forecasts coming up at the usual time. we will be talking more about the weather pattern after half past five. we will take a look at a few other stories. the ringleader of a so—called ‘boiler room' fraud has been sentenced to a total of 13 years after being found guilty of conspiring with five others

5:15 pm
the white house has said the statement is nothing to do with president donald trump or his victory. surely it is usually significant that paul manafort is agreeing to talk to robert mueller. it is hugely significant, agreeing to get interviews and briefings and agreeing to hand over documents and testify in future proceedings which to you and me means future trials. and also to give his cooperation and his evidence to robert mueller without his lawyers around. this is paul manafort in a room with a special counsel. with the special council allow a plea deal and they didn't think paul manafort had
5:16 pm
something to get them? the question is what is the nature of information robert mueller fields will be bible? will it be to the big investigation he is attempting to carry on into alleged collusion between the russian government and the donald trump campaign? is it more to do with the other work by paul manafort ata with the other work by paul manafort at a lobbyist for the ukrainian government and what other individuals and institutions might be involved in that the seat in the united states? 0ne be involved in that the seat in the united states? one way or another robert mueller has got a very big result out of this this morning and given all that paul manafort is still facing a jail term. despite the white house in the last two minutes saying it has nothing to do with president donald trump, how much concern is there no going to be inside the administration about what now appears to be this cooperation? there will be huge concern about this. it is not clear what they mean
5:17 pm
by this has nothing to do with the president. the charges he has pled guilty to not directly to do with the president but the corporation may well be. that is what we do not know this stage. they will be enormously worried. there will be a certain amount of relief that the trial will not be carried on during the mid—term elections which are coming up at the beginning of november that threat has been removed by an even potentially bigger threat which is what paul ma nafort bigger threat which is what paul manafort might save the example about that meeting at trump tower between representatives of the russian government and the donald trump campaign that took place volley was chairman of the campaign. —— while he was chairman. the headlines on bbc news... hurricane florence makes landfall on east coast of the united states, with high winds and torrential rain. five million people

in england are helping to look after an ill or disabled member of their family, according to research carried out by the bbc and the university of nottingham — a far higher number than previously thought. caring for a family member can involve anything from housework to helping someone get into and out of bed, or providing them with their medication. ricky boleto has been to meet one family in blackpool. at the top we've got our mum and dad. then we've got anna. she's the oldest and helps cook sometimes with abi, which is the second oldest. third oldest is ellen, which shares a room with me. the fourth oldest is 0wen, and he's got his own room and then i'm the youngest. poppy is nine years old. she's a young carer. along with her brother and sisters, they look after their dad. i can put his slippers on when he needs them, or i can take his pills up and help mum organise them.
5:26 pm
and what's it like looking after dad ? sometimes, it can be a bit upsetting, because he can be sick sometimes. andrew is unable to walk. he is awaiting surgery on his back and now suffers from extreme anxiety, which has left him bedbound. his partner, tina, gave up work to look after him but she says she can't do it alone. if it wasjust me and andrew, probably be really hard, because then i don't have anybody that i can rely on to help me, really. before and after school, the children cook and clean. there is little time for anything else. i have to help the kids with their homework and read books and make their dinner, because i'm just used to doing it now. but sometimes it is, like, a bit hard. it's also hard for the youngest member of the family. is it sometimes difficult at school, because maybe some of your friends don't know what you do at home, i suppose? yeah.

5:36 pm
on. dr christopher holloway is a meteorologist at reading university who specialises in tropical weather and climate and joins us now. thank you forjoining us. to lay person, to people who don't have your level of expertise, we look at it and think, goodness, it is extraordinary that two such powerful systems a re extraordinary that two such powerful systems are happening at almost the same time. is there anything we should be reading into that? just the fact that you have to large tropical cyclones at this time of year is not that surprising because this is right around the peak of the hurricane as typhoon season. i admit it isa hurricane as typhoon season. i admit it is a bit dramatic that they happen to be making landfall so close together. in terms of the situation in the us, what seems to be the cases that it is particularly slow moving. why is that? it is happening because it has reached the
5:37 pm
outer periphery of a large area of high pressure. the winds are not very strong. that means the storm will linger over the carolinas and slowly move west across south carolina, over the next 48 hours. that means catastrophic freshwater flooding. that is flooding rivers, streams, streets. this is the main danger going forward. it is the amount of rain that is so staggering. when you hear that it is potentially eight months of rain in a matter of days, is this a new weather pattern, a modern phenomenon on? this is an unusual events to have a storm this slow. we are talking about upwards of 20 inches, maybe more than 50 centimetres of rain in some areas of south—east north carolina. it is unusual. but
5:38 pm
this is what happens when a storm is going to take such a long time to move going to take such a long time to m ove a cross going to take such a long time to move across the area. hurricane harvey last year spent days or those used in area and brought record levels of rainfall beer. gas, and when we sit here and look at images we have been seeing for the last few days. —— yes, absolutely. properties built on the coast and every time we talk to people like you, i suppose i wa nt to talk to people like you, i suppose i want to ask, are we as a society, should we be thinking about where we build? absolutely. we should be thinking about where to build and how we create incentives for work to rebuild. 0ften how we create incentives for work to rebuild. often we end up rebuilding in the same places that were hit by a catastrophic storm. we do need to rethink some of that. so much more i
5:39 pm
could ask you. thank you for your time. we may be talking over the course of the weekend as well. i'm too. —— thank you. the high court has ruled the electoral commission misinterpreted eu referendum spending laws, allowing the vote leave campaign to break them. vote leave paid more than six hundred thousand pounds to clear bills allegedly run up by a university student, darren grimes, who ran the ‘beleave' campaign. the commission initially said it had no grounds to suspect this was a scheme to get round spending limits — but later changed its mind and fined vote leave and mr grimes. both deny wrongdoing. all week, we've been reporting on the 10th anniversary of the collapse of the new york banking giant, lehman brothers, which unleashed the global financial crisis. the uk experienced a deep recession, squeezing incomes which are only now beginning to recover. among other countries, spain was particularly badly hit:
5:40 pm
a building boom funded by reckless borrowing rapidly gave way to a bust that cut growth and costjobs. 0ur europe correspondent kevin connolly has been back to madrid to look for signs of recovery. not far from bustling madrid, a ghostly spanish road to nowhere. a stretch of highway left unfinished at a time when businesses were losing their money and bankers were losing their nerve. there are ghost towns of empty houses, too, nearby, but in some of these, signs of change. in once deserted val da luz, the mayor says public money spent in once deserted valdeluz, the mayor says public money spent on schools and sports facilities is bringing people in. it was empty. valdeluz, six years ago, was a ghost city. but now it is a star city. we changed the perception of the outside people. but spain's recovery is patchy.
5:41 pm
this community group in madrid campaigns against banks that repossess homes when families can't pay their mortgages. they say the poor are being punished for mistakes made by bankers and politicians. i'm sure things have not been fixed at all. people are losing their houses, are fighting for their rights. the depression of the 1930s still haunts spain, too. its new leftist government wants to remove from this memorial site the remains of franco, the dictator who ruled as fascism prospered. there will be nothing like this to mark the fallout of the first financial crisis of the 21st century. the consequences were less violent, less profound. but there were changes on the left and the right in european politics, and it's possible that the final consequences are stilljust working
5:42 pm
their way through the system. high streets have ticked over as public money has propped up the banking system and borrowing has been cheap. but some economists warn that policy is meant to fix the last crisis could yet trigger the next one. there is an old spanish saying that goes... he speaks spanish. a pessimist is a well—informed optimist. you say "when" we have the crisis, not if. that's right, when, not if, because i'm sadly sure that we will have another crisis. ten years on, spain can at least see a road to recovery. but this highway to nowhere is a reminder that uncertainty as well as opportunity lies in the future. the headlines on bbc news...
