6:34 pm
which of course is disrupting already strained global supply chains. so correspondence covering the story from the us and canada in a moment. gabriel elizondo in sioux masses on the us side of the board of 1st jodi vance, who is in vancouver, which of course took the brunt of the storm. and what's the latest on the situation there? the flood waters still rising at this moment, officials in the sumac perry area in abbotsford and chill lack where the most extreme flooding has impacted the agricultural land are giving an update as i speak right now. at last check. the hope was that the flood waters would coincide overnight. however, it is raining lightly now, here in metro, vancouver in the lower mainland in the fraser valley, where this extreme weather event has impacted so many roadways and obviously the agricultural center of british columbia as well. so we will bring more updates as we learn from officials this morning. what we do know is that the canadian forces
6:35 pm
have been deployed and the reconnaissance mission is underway. assessment phase is what they're calling this, trying to figure out how to open up those supply chains. and indeed, get goods and services moving. we have heard that highway $71.00 of the 4 major highways connecting canada to the, to the lower mainland to vancouver, literally cut off the west coast. and canada has been cut off to the rest of canada . one highway opened briefly just to allow those stranded in the area of hope and agassi to get through. it was a single land will be re closed so that there might be some clean up for the debris . there is certainly an ongoing assessment and recovery when it comes to opening some of the roadway. those are the most acute issues jody, but then you get this knock on effect, which i referred to earlier, the supply chain. the fact that canada is major port is now pretty much cut off. this is a major and it hits on
6:36 pm
a number of levels. i mentioned agricultural agriculturally, that is huge. that is hundreds of millions of dollars of milk and eggs and cattle, but literally our underwater at the moment of veterinary and going to try and figure out. and that's what is happening in that area. the trend mountain pipeline has been shut off due to concerns over integrity. that puts concern over moving that to refineries and to market. so that could impact not only gas stations feeling stations here in the lower mainland, british columbia, but also might impact air travel. there are many moving parts associated with the provincial state of emergency here and certainly we are seeing shelves emptying. people are very unnerved both here in a metro vancouver as well as in the interior. ready of british columbia, many people talking about how they are finding the shelves and grocery stores to be emptied out. people are hoarding, it seems and provincial the premier. john morgan has stepped forward and said,
6:37 pm
please only take what you need and share the other side of that coin. i have to say people as far away as toronto and here on the other side of the country. i've been putting together care packages for those who might need the support here in british columbia. so certainly seeing in this weather event bring out the best in people in some instances as well. excellent. ok, so jody vance is in vancouver reporting. there are not a unique re canadian story. gabriel, arizona over the border in washington state. and how things de gabriel yeah. in the town of assuming washington, just on the border with canada, said town about 1600 people. as you can tell it's wet, it's still raining, it's muddy and as you can probably tell behind me, it is flooded in this town. this was really one of the towns. it was hit hardest here on the and the pacific northwest of the united states. part of where the storm
6:38 pm
hit and it's day break here, so we'll get a better assessment of how bad the damage is. as the sun comes out, we get a good, better sense of it. but this town was absolutely hit terribly about 80 percent of all of the homes or buildings here in the town had some sort of water damage or flooding. this city hall has been completely flooded. and yeah, a few trains have derailed as well. it's fairly calm here, right now we have seen that some of the flood waters are starting to recede, but the worry is, is it more rain could be in the horizon? as you can see, there's light rain right now. and this area has been devastated now, financially and economically, as the mayor said, many of the businesses will be closed for many days, if not weeks or perhaps even longer. and he said there'll be a serious economic impact here. and this small town as well. ah,
6:39 pm
they're still going to be starting to do a assessments by rescue and emergency personnel. most of the residents of the town fled right as a storm was hitting here. so most are safe, we believe, but certainly hundreds and hundreds of people had to seek safety elsewhere. but this is definitely a town that was right in the middle of this storm. a storm that many people here are now saying has become more common. this is actually a 2nd such a storm in the last 2 years. it has hit this area of the north pacific northwest. a lot of people saying, pointing to climate change, as is something that is exacerbating the veracity of these storms, depend on his, on his recording from zoom us in washington in the u. n. a. united states. thank you. i, gabriel. now for decades, afghanistan's helman province was on the frontline of the country's conflict. now groups are trying to clear bombs and land binds left from the war to prevent more

6:51 pm
ah ah ah ah,
6:52 pm
welcome back and he's here with you sport. thank you so much. come all well ahead of the women's tennis association has questioned the authenticity of an e mail. said to have been written by a leading chinese tennis player. hang, troy hasn't been seen in public since making sexual assault allegations against the top governments official on social media, the e mail states he's mine isn't missing unless she's just been at home resting. while this is what the w a boss steve simon had to say. the statement release today by chinese state media concerning pang, short une raises my concerns as to her safety and whereabouts i have a hard time believing that pang. sure, i actually wrote the e mail we received or believes what is being attributed to her. now joining us from washington, d. c, we have half post report to travis waldron, travis, great, have you on al jazeera. now the w t, of course, does a lot of in showing that statement from asians. chairman, is, is quite something it really is,
6:53 pm
especially when you think about the way that other sporting institutions and leaders of active players have spoken out against china when they're in human rights concerns about china. looking at the mba here in the united states or the way that the english premier league and some of its clubs, reacted when medicine, o z l. i spoke out about the situation facing leaders in china. the responses were very different. now the w. t a and the simon are coming out with, with essentially a very strong challenge to the chinese government. and you see it also from other tennis players including naomi, those shaka who tweeted about it today. so i think it is really. ready quite remarkable. it's something that we haven't seen a whole lot of major sporting organizations, at least to this extent trauma. of course we got the winter olympics coming up in beijing. do you think ahead of that sports? men and women seem to becoming slightly more empowered to speak out on issues of
6:54 pm
human rights in china. you would hope so. i would be obviously in 2008 the recalls for boycotts around china when beijing hosted the summer games. but we didn't see a ton of activism and statements of support from athletes. there are already calls from human rights groups around the world to boycott the 2022 games. and it's not clear that they're going to be widespread boycotts of those olympics. but the united states is already pondering a diplomatic boy kind of those gates, but i think we'll see more from other countries. the question is whether, you know, athletes and sporting organizations, including and especially those that do a lot of business with in china speak out. because what's clear is that the international committee itself has no interest in standing up for human against human rights abuses of that country. or really any other in the past or the future, the i o c is basically state that
6:55 pm
a position that human rights are not in concern. and so that leaves the owner to individual athletes and other sporting organizations. at the same time, it's going to be hard for a lot of those athletes to do that. when they know they don't have the backing of the i o c or some of the national limbic committee. so it'll be interesting to keep an eye on going forward. though, because there are a lot of calls and there are a lot of there already, a lot of activism around this. so we, and now with this case is only going to add to that thomas rolled in from the huff post. joining us from washington, d. c. that thanks so much, travis, thank you. on the court sir. spain's gobby marissa has won the season ending w t a finals. the 2 time grand slam champion defeated her is phone and opponent and a contract and straight fit. 6375, much taken place in guadalajara, mexico will say in the year as well. number 3, when the rankings are updated on monday, present to you the well, i mean,
