1:07 pm
there are 20 to 25000 people who cross every day anyways, and many without documentation, which is something focused on has been agitating against, as asked again and again for the international community to help man, the border. it has never happened. we've been a boss, but it, that is one of the issues that buckets on has to face. but unfortunately we haven't gotten much support. that is not if you crisis of this one the message from august on the essentially that we cannot prepaid the mistake of the 1998. at that time, the dollar bond had not given anybody that showed and said that they would not be used against any other country. and the fact that there was a chance for peace, they pockets on port notion that the wire nice reengaged that dollar bonds because they have been able to go based off the almost 2 decades off by day one is done so that indeed the position from the buckets on the side. yeah. can hotter in

for the taliban as it tries to form this government we were just telling view is there about the situation with the banks and how so many people are desperate to get to get hold of their money that truly has to be at the top of the list of net will. absolutely. this is more challenging issue or the bottom vendor. she did a lot of times to should in most of the people are depending on the banking for their caches. and, but it did in the banking, so there's lots of regime and that's the government. now, it is almost entering 2nd week in about the aim that people can access and, and get your money on that bond or cash machine. so it re, did a big problem or that would be fine. and i'm good. and how does all people are
1:10 pm
every day giving bond on there? and they demand openness, banking and funding on the bank in the taliban repeatedly released the segment. and they asked that by the bank the open to do the normal. and i was to let the person in a we have $200.00 or $20000.00 funny weekly. and they cannot put out more than this money. but to now that i am talking with you and the taliban unable to can be the private bank officer to fully up there is no central bank or government bank off of there, but the bankers released also didn't. and they said that until the opening all the central bank will not open around in the not run our banking system. therefore we defense and we are watching seeing
1:11 pm
a central bank. we are not going to open our banking after the announcement of decided bond or government within $3.00 to $4.00 days or at the end of the 1st august, 1st or september. they will not need the government and we have some sort of thing. but they said that they were the 1st government after the top rated. you may be opening an operation off bank in uniform. was that the people are in but a big and hard problem there are they do not have who was for the problems in daily life. well, what else? what else to people? what, what, what else does the taliban need to do to gain the confidence of people there? because obviously if they, as we've been reporting the last couple of weeks,
1:12 pm
thousands of already left the country because they fear tyler bomb will. but for those left behind, what does the taliban need to do to? to reassure them? 3 things for managers are very top priority for the leadership. the 1st one is to announce the government and the type of government, what, what the government announced for the war did us watching people are watching. vince and also on previous by the jason brewer, the addition of ex government dad watching about more than what the government sick and people are in a desperate and uncertain situation on the when there is not official government official in official government who no one is into opens has their own business, private sectors. the thing is object. the 1st one is announcement of the government
1:13 pm
and they can find energy will be to operational banking system. it also extend your interest or you just thought it was done. and the 3rd one is to offer and provide services. and to this century, people are mostly depends on services, public therapy, this of the government board from 2 weeks almost we can see on the stick to our audit and it is no public services just as sister and an expensive and if the operational risk. alright, appreciate your thoughts on that. no, not the law. bob, thanks for the was thank you. the warning of an imminent attack comes the attack in cobble comes after the pentagon said it targeted members of isolate

1:15 pm
are no longer well, longer walk in on the face of the earth. that's a good thing, a good thing for the people who can stand. it's a good thing for our troops and our forces at that airfield and i think i'm just gonna leave it there for the u. s. and the taliban are coordinating on airport security. that cooperation did not extend to the drone strike. a taliban spokesperson told reuters news agency they should have been informed before the air strike took place in a statement saturday afternoon. biden said the chance of another terrorist attack in the next 24 to 36 hours is very high. it's believed round. $4000.00 us troops are still at the airport. cobble and commanders say, despite the risks, the mission continues in till the august 31st deadline biden has put in place threats to our forces and to this operation remain real and significant. i'm sure you can appreciate that. and now with the military mission trip begin to in and couple thousands of service members are working across the globe and within the
1:16 pm
united states. to complete this incredibly important mission, caught in the middle innocent afghan civilians at an airport near washington on saturday. afghan evacuation continued to arrive in america after an arduous journey . well, i will say the last 6 or 7 days have been the toughest days of my life. honestly, i don't want to lie, or i don't want to. but how things are really bad all around the airport, all the entrances, and you kind of feel lucky if you can get just to that. those gauge over the weekend, america was learning more of the u. s. service members killed the suicide attack mac. soviet, a navy medic was one of them. he was only 2 years old when the us invaded afghanistan in 2001 friends and family back in his hometown of ohio
1:17 pm
are grieving his death. he was just a really good kid that everybody liked. everybody loves the family to very well respected. the u. s. military pull out from afghanistan was measured in months and then weeks. and now it's down to days. and it could be the most unpredictable and dangerous phase of all. with president biden's simultaneously warning americans that there could be more attacks against us troops in capital, while also more strikes against those. the u. s. says his responsible gabriel as hondo out as ita washington. and we got plenty more head on this news. i including the 10 thousands march through washington, d. c, against efforts by some states to make it harder for some to vote in sport. scary
1:18 pm
moments in qualify for the belgian grown for more details later in the news news. well, i feel ahead but 1st, hurricane ida is hours away from making land for on the u. s. gulf coast forcing tens of thousands of people to flee their home city is expected to hit near new orleans late on sunday. the category for storm is forecast to be the worst to strike louisiana since 1850, and many people are rushing to petrol stations to fill our tanks, while others a boarding up buildings present. joe biden is issued an emergency order for food, water, and other supplies to be sent to the state was hearken. ida bears down on louisiana . many fear it could bring damage similar to that of hurricane katrina. 16 years
1:19 pm
ago, katrina struck the same area general rating. a storm surge, 6 meters high. the devastated new orleans and other cities along the gulf of mexico . that search cause more damage than the winds and rain because it cause new orleans levy system to fail, leaving 80 percent of the city on the water. katrina became one of the worst natural disasters in american history and left more than 1800 people dead. because the state of louisiana, more than $100000000000.00 in damage and left millions of people homeless. the half a 1000000 left new orleans and never returned. a billions of dollars have since been spent to protect the region. new levies have been built, but with rising sea level fuel by global warming, there is widespread concern about how stable that system is. an ida is the 1st major storm to be put to the test. well, i just here is where the expert to jeff harrington is following developments force
1:20 pm
and joined us now. so jeff, situation developing rapidly right now, not now, idea is a category for storm. that's right has, and this is exactly what we feared that this would be rapid, intensification. that's exactly what we're seeing right now. so here is i'm going to take off the name just so you can see the signature, a pinhole i there as it starts to swoop in to louisiana. and this is where it is going to make landfall. so come on, we'll track this one out together by the numbers here it is. we're putting it a few hours for south west of new orleans, and this is going to have a catastrophic impact. so we're going to break it down now by the numbers again. category for right now, and it is expected to maintain that intensity as it makes its landfall sunday evening. let's go over the numbers right now. winds are just going to be destructive anywhere from about 209 to 220 kilometers per hour. so what this is going to do, it's going to pick up the ocean and it's just going to drive it into the coastline . this is what we call storm surge thing, 45 meters high. so coastal sections,
1:21 pm
anything under that will be buried in water, then add on top of all of that half a meter of re $500.00 millimeters of rain. so all of this to say, this is the strongest hurricane to hit louisiana since the 18 fifty's. so what's going on, why are we seen this? rapid intensification all has to do with these warm waters in the gulf of mexico. so the darker the red here, that's the higher the temperature. but this thing still has to pass through the northern coast here, the northern gulf, where the temperatures are even higher at about 32 degrees. so we could even still see more intensification. k. want to bring you up to speed with hurricane nora, as well as it did make it's landfall toward the pacific coast of mexico, the south west and look at the damage done were already starting to see some rainfall amounts come in, in particular for mens neo over the past 24 hours scooping up a $172.00 millimeters of rain. but watch this. what you should get for the month of august about $216.00. so almost
1:22 pm
a month's worth of rain in the span of about 24 hours. so here's where hurricane north going right now. going up the pacific coast rate through the gulf of california. going to watch to see if there is any impact to the popular tourist hotspot of cobbler san lucas. so to hurricanes that were watching, but of course, hurricane nora has them will be catastrophic. thanks so much jeff. now, australia is reporting more than a $1300.00 daily corona, virus infections. and you record, since the pandemic began, there is no sign yet that the outbreak that started in mid june is slowing more than half of australia has been on the locked down. now for weeks. the largest city struggle to control the delta various of the virus australia rushing to vaccinate its people and its aiming to have 80 percent of its population inoculated by mid november. new zealand corona virus outbreak is continuing to grow with another 83
