weather on all continents. in sudan, there's no end in sight too heavy seasonal rains, which have been falling since may. dozens of people are dead and that thousands of homes have been destroyed. in other parts of the world. there's drought, mexico's 3rd largest city. monterey is running out of drinking water as dams, which critically low levels. and a heat wave in china has lasted more than 2 months. the longest since records began, and asia, the longest river, the youngster is shrinking. or patrick fork reports from a trunk. ching, one of the worst affected regions of china. it's faint for being one of china's furnace cities with the longest summer's and hottest temperatures. but in the last couple of months, the heat in the southwestern city of chunking has been oppressive, even by its own standards. mercury levels have frequently topped 40 degrees celsius and had an old time record high of 45 degrees. earlier this week, paula: yeah,
9:03 pm
it's hot as hell i melting. many tourists come to john ching to marvel at its sides . jarling river might be what's most i catching now. it's a major tributary that meets the yancey further south. and it's dried up so much people can walk half way across it. again, i'm definitely worried. it could affect residents and face that need to use the water. for classes of worn, the dry spell could last well into september. authorities began discharging water from the 3 gorges dam to replenish the yanks in its offshoots. but normal floes could still be months away. here in the city, people are cooling off wherever possible is library converted out of an old air raid shelter has become a popular hang out. a breeze circulates through the funnel shaped space, making it an ideal hideaway who is when it's especially hot, more people come. but elsewhere,
9:04 pm
it's hard to escape the effects of this heat wave and the drive that's come with it . a short drive south of the city is long gin village with insufficient irrigation crops here a dying. well, this here shows pretty clearly why crops are struggling. the water for this field behind us has receded about 20 meters away from the crops and what's been left behind is just as bone dry layer of mud report say more than 300. 50000 people in rural chunking are suffering because of a shorter journey to supplies. many of them like one man, we spoke to our elderly and can't do much to fix the problem. because they use a more irrigation systems, you have to buy pipes and machine. you said you have to spend the money and it's not worth it because the stuff was already dried and died. like, what's the point of water in if it's already dead? and with many scientists saying hot a days as a result of global warming are here to stay days here for the people of long ging
9:05 pm
could be numbered. patrick voc, al jazeera chunking china for more now on the extreme temperatures across china with our whether present to jeff harrington. well, this has been unrelenting heath. it's now lasted for more than 2 months. so here's what's going on. we've got this plume of heat rate across the yangtze river valley, whether you're in western central or eastern areas, everyone is feeling it. what we know is that the heat started earlier this year. it's been more intense, and it's last, the longer a lot of comparisons are be made to 2013. that's when a heat wave stretch for 62 days, but we've already blown past that and we're coming up to 70 days. and there's still more indication that it will carry through. here's some proof of just how hot it's been in chunk ching, a 45 degrees. so we've got temperature is a good 10 degrees above where they should be. and is there any relief coming? here's the forecast on saturday. keep in mind darker the red, the higher the temperature. here's the yangtze river valley and we've still got
9:06 pm
temperatures in the 40s. okay, let me take the colors off and show you the precipitation rate. now a week line of storms coming into shanghai. so here's what the next 3 days looks like a maybe a bit of relief. but look at this, not only high temperature's, also high humidity as while feeling 45 degrees on saturday. you'll kick back down to 35, but that is still above the august temperature average before. once again, those temperatures start to climb on monday. so in the short term, no relief come in. extreme joy. weather is also causing problems in mexico, a severe drought as hit the northern city of monterey is $5000000.00 restaurants are running out of water and relying on water tankers. the areas, reservoirs, lakes, and dams have dropped to critical levels. authorities say the situation is desperate . the manuals me say rainfall has been below the annual average since 2015. march saw no rain for all for the 1st time since records began. so it's
9:07 pm
a very serious situation, the seal, but in the put, allow your i must be bus. if you are fighting over the water, the trucks arrive and people don't respect the line, is chaos in our neighborhood is sad or what can we do? we need a miracle. my correspondence, manual, arapahoe joins us now from mexico city. so, i mean, you've been reporting on drought conditions in mexico for several months, or how bad is the situation now there? the word being throwed around to describe these persisting extreme drought conditions, especially in the north eastern part of mexico is historic. these are some of the driest conditions that the region has seen in the last 30 years. there have been rains in recent days, and in the recent weeks, specifically bringing some relief to the city of monterey. it's the city of 5000000 people. but these rains, even though there happens some cases of heavy rains, simply haven't been enough. the rainy season and that was supposed to start in may
9:08 pm
in the state of new, heavily on in the capital city of, of monterey just never came. and the problem is far more widespread than just one city or one state in mexico. it's estimated that somewhere around 65 percent of mexico, mexico's national territory is suffering from moderate to extreme drought conditions . just last month, the month of july, the mexican president under essman lopez, although it did declare a national emergency, allowing the federal government to free up some resources to provide water to regions of the country that have been most affected by this drought that order that the declaration of a national merger emergency also law, the federal government, to order bottling companies like coca cola and some of mexico's national beer companies to reduce water consumption, to reduce extraction of water, especially in the north part of the country until the problem is resolved. and just one last thing, the extreme heat condition is, is something that we should really mentioned the month of july was the hottest
9:09 pm
recorded in mexico since 1953. so these extreme, he conditions are certainly not doing anything to help alleviate the ongoing drought conditions among, well, we understand that drought conditions in the south west and united states have meant water shortages in northern mexico as well when you consider the measures being taken on the other side of the border in the united states, us speaking specifically about the colorado river, which has been severely impacted by extreme heat conditions, by drought, by a lack of precipitation. there's also, there's already been states like nevada and arizona that have been asked to reduce water consumption of the colorado river supplies water to 40000000 people across 7 to 77 different states. and that's even before it gets to mexico, where it supplies waters to residents. on this side of the border as well, we already know that because of international agreements between mexico and the
9:10 pm
united states, mexico will be receiving significantly less water starting in january of 2023. there's also concern that the water crisis playing out in the us as well as in mexico could ensure lead to a food crisis. so when you step back and you get, and you and you look at the, this drought as not really respecting international borders, you get a sense of the scale of this crisis. and you get a sense of the need for international action to bring some sort of relief to the many, many people who are being impacted by the extreme and persisting drought conditions might wrap low live 1st in mexico city. thank you. well, there's been no end in sight. the heavy season rains that have been lashing parts. this is done since may flooding has killed. dozens of people destroyed thousands of homes. the un says more than 130000 people have been affected. it's on our way to report from one of the worst hit regions the had the he thought he had what, hello we be. we are reporting from will tell,
9:11 pm
are we village of our managed local province? it is one of the most ravaged villages by the torrential rain and flash floods its homes more than $300.00 families. as you can see, the entire village is inundated by water from all directions. as we walk through, we saw many of the houses, partly or totally damaged, due to rising water levels. residents of the village have lost all my school depositions from property to food stocks and one of the only thing left as their castle. the village is totally deserted, as most of the local residents had fled for their lives. some have tried to salvage what they can from their homes, residents who have evacuated to nearby villages, and now facing di conditions. they need shelter, food and medicine. nearby farming lands were also flooded and that's ruined the harvest. these floods, the unprecedented, especially in this part of the sudan as floods have devoured all of what local residents who have by ascending and s o s message to the international community.
9:12 pm
and all human relief agencies asking them to quickly bring help to this catastrophic situation. as a floods in new zealand have forced hundreds of people to leave their homes, the city of nelson has taken the biggest hit. officials issued a more evacuation of what is on friday after $75.00 centimeters of rain fell in just 3 days. catalogue has had a young, has the latest it could take years to repair the damage caused by these france. days of heavy rain have better parts of new zealand, south island, some areas of the city of nelson are unrecognizable. on the ground, the destruction is extensive. roads are blocked and officials have closed schools. entire communities have been forced out of their homes with some declared unsafe or simply uninhabitable. that is basically just caught ups and, and we saw the girls rotting stretchable property. so we just, yeah,
9:13 pm
let the property, it's about 815 i said to missouri, i came this morning to our service duration. it's pretty bug city. officials warn there is no time wind for when people will be allowed to go back home. we will be taking a prudent approach and i'll make no excuse for that or withdraw there. we are, protect the, the property, and lives of people as opposed to allowing people back. and i cannot unfortunately guarantee that people will be in the houses again today. nearby towns have also registered record levels of rain. what we experienced it was probably that the most increase and water flow in a river. and a case that we're saying, 100 years more rain fall is expected. along with warnings of more damage. cartier, little bits of again, how does you un secretary general antonio terrace,
9:14 pm
is in ukraine, southern port city of odessa to review the shipments of grain is part of a deal broken by turkey in the u. n. last month. but as the resumption of ukraine's grain exports from its 3 ports, several ships including a you and charted aid vessel bound for if you have left since then there is also discussed the situation at those up of asia. power plot gives state nuclear power company thinks russia is planning to disconnect the plant from ukraine's grid, un secretary general, called on russia to refrain from diverting power plant has been under russian control since march. the facilities operated by ukrainian staff, but guarded by russian forces is come under repeated shelling. and there are fears of a major disaster if critical infrastructure is hit. moscow has rejected international calls to demilitarize the plot to raise a bow is in odessa with more on what good harish has been saying about the felicia and ukrainian green shipments over 500000 tons of grain have already been
9:15 pm
exported from here since a landmark deal was truck between russia and ukraine with the help of the united nations and turkey last month. and this is the place where, until tanya will terrorist visit to guarantee and to monitor how this whole process is ongoing. he said that access to food and fertilizers must be guaranteed access to russian fertilizers, but also to train and for he says that much more needs to be done. and that he hoped that the amount of food that he's being exported from ukraine will increase from $3000000.00 tons a month to around $5000000.00 tons a month. another issue of major concern that's happening here is the situation around the nuclear power plant of support isha. back in march, russia took over that area, established a military base. and there's been lots of fighting and shelling going on around that area. there's a lot of concern that the plant could be damage and that's why the international
9:16 pm
community has been demanding that international monitors are able to visit. that part of the country. also ukrainian state nuclear company announced that russia was getting ready to unhook the plant from ukraine's grid, and tanya would carry denounces, and this is what he had to say. what is true is that the fees did? he said i was, as we propose the plan, the problem will be sold. and obviously, the electricity from the 40 here is ukrainian electricity. and it's necessary, especially during the winter ford of ukrainian people. and these principle must be fully respected. so there's been a big debate about how they said by international inspectors should happen. why russia saying that it should happen to russian? so ukrainians at the united nations are thing that it could happen through crane,
9:17 pm
even though it could mean going through the front lines, doing a telephone conversation between french president im on the way back micron and a rush as president value me to put in be agreed of a need for a v inspectors to visit the plan and even a press and bloody meat for being said that he was going to reconsider whether he would agree or not that to change his his mind and that the inspectors will go through ukraine. u. s. has announced an extra $775000000.00 in military aid for ukraine. latest package includes light multiples, rocket launchers, surveillance, drones, and mine resistance vehicles. ukrainian forces will so get extra ammunition and how it sir systems. well, mark him, it is a retired u. s. army brigadier general and former assistant secretary of state for political military affairs. he joins us on skype from washington. d. c, thanks for being with us here on the al jazeera is this latest aid package enough? do you think to significantly changed the war on the ground?
9:18 pm
well, i don't think it alone will change the situation on the ground, but it will certainly make it much harder for the russians to cross you fight. if you take a look at the types of weapons that we're sending you, it's very revealing. as to the tactical strategy, you're asking ukrainians to execute a strategy they've been doing quite well with the past few months. how difficult all the logistics then of moving military equipment to where it's needed in the midst of a walk, give us an idea of that. well that's, that's a very good point for both sides. first of all, it's very difficult to move them just states into ukraine. from european nations, and especially from ukraine to where that ammunition is needed. but because that is such a vulnerability, that's exactly what the ukrainians are using this weapons act to do. they're going
9:19 pm
to get some adjust the space going again, he ammunition dumps that morning and grad against the trans loading areas such as when they go from the railroads to the trucks. so it is very difficult to bring that equipment in. that makes it a honorable target with the high mars in the artillery and the drones will be attacking this is a fluid situation, of course. so how is russia likely to respond to this? well, 1st of all, i disagree that this is a fluid situation. in fact, it's a pretty static situation at this point. i wrote about this wall street journal that will looking more like a 1st world war western front or both sides aren't moving very, are forward or to the rear. and what they're having is an artillery war between both sides. so i think we need to recognize, we need to continue to get the ukrainians,
9:20 pm
that type of equipment highmark or toward to go against these supply points, but also against the russian artillery. and i think it will not make a significant difference in the long run, but it's going to wear down the russians in there, not only their capability to prosecute this war, canceled their willingness to prosecute this war. and given what you say then, do you think this sufficient domestic support in the us for this kind of aid and patience for this kind of war? or is it a difficult fell to the public? well, i think at this point there are still some enthusiasm, certainly not as much as was in april mainstream and the public support. busy is, is declining or not increasing, but as important or european allies data is betting that they're going to run out of gas. that the country i think that the world is going to run out
9:21 pm
a week. and even more importantly, the european nations inside, you know, what tire of this war. and that's exactly what vladimir wants to drive a wedge into nato in the nato countries. because that ultimately it's subjective not necessarily taking over ukraine, but to. busy drive a wedge to nato, which he, seasons. it's where it is threat. commit. we very much appreciate your time here and out there. thank you. thank you. are there been explosions in the somali capital mortgage issue? witnesses say there were 3 blasts at an intersection in the city center. a short time later, attackers storm the hotel in the same area, security forces and are battling with the fighters hold up inside the building. at least a dozen people have been injured. a plenty more had on the news, including another show of strength by my support is in iraq as a political deadlock continued as desperate times in me. and as many people
