tv   New Day Weekend With Christi Paul and Boris Sanchez  CNN  April 30, 2022 5:00am-6:00am PDT

5:00 am
just say watchathon into your voice remote and get ready to watch. i love you. i love you. i love you all. good morning, everyone. it is saturday, april 30th. i'm amara walker in today for boris sanchez. >> nice to hold down the fort with you this saturday. i'm laura jarrett in for christi paul. a lot to get to. we start this hour with at least 40 million people under the threat of severe storms. this follows at least 14 tornadoes reported across kansas and nebraska. >> look at that. >> oh my gosh. >> oh my gosh. >> oh my gosh is right. authorities say at least one
5:01 am
tornado touched down in the wichita area yesterday, damaging hopes, cars and at least 50 to 100 buildings there. >> the worst damage happened in the town of andover where authorities say most of the roads are closed. with the sun now up in kansas, authorities will be able to get a much more detailed and closer look at the damage. last night, andover's fire chief laid out the tough task ahead. >> we know that there was a direct tornado strike that started in sedgewick county and travelled into andover. we had many buildings in andover take very tough damage. total in the path there were 966 buildings, we believe. we do not have a damage assessment on how many of those were damaged. >> all right. cnn meteorologist allison chin c char joining us now. we know at least 14 tornadoes
5:02 am
were reported across kansas and nebraska. the threat is not yet over. what do we know? >> yeah, that's right. the same system is continuing to move on. it's been a very active past 24 hour. as you mentioned, a total of 15 tornado reports, over 80 damaging wind reports and 60 hail reports. some the size of baseballs and even softballs. so very large hail. tornadoes obviously a big concern and the damage that was caused is going to be a little difficult to clean up today because we have high wind warnings and wind advisories for some of the same locations that had those damaging storms. you have 30 to 40 mile-per-hour winds in some of these areas to contend with while you're cleaning up a lot of damage from those storms. but the storms are not over yet. they're continuing to shift off to the east. so states like illinois, missouri, arkansas and oklahoma is where we're seeing the activity for now. it's not as bad as it was last night, but now that the sun is out, once you get the heating of the day, that's when we really expect these storms to fire back up again, especially this afternoon and into the evening hours. anywhere from milwaukee all the
5:03 am
way back down to waco and austin, texas, have the potential for strong to severe thunderstorms. the target point for some of the biggest storms likely this yellow shaded area you see here. so that includes chicago, st. louis stretching down towards little rock, arkansas. damaging winds, large hail, very similar to what we saw yesterday. yes, even some isolated tornadoes still possible today. as we mention, while there are on going storms right now, the bulk of the severe thunderstorms will develop this afternoon and continue into the evening hours as the storm progresses east ward. this means if you were in some of these affected areas tonight, please make sure you have a way to get those emergency alerts before you go to bed, just in case a watch or warning may come out after you go to sleep. this is a multi-day event because we have several different systems. tomorrow we have a secondary system that will mainly impact texas and oklahoma. by monday, it begins to spread north and also east ward with those potentials. so here is a look at the two systems. this is the first one impacting
5:04 am
areas of midwest today, shifting east. then by the time we get into sunday, there's that second dare low pressure testimony that begins to develop severe thunderstorms for texas and oklahoma. by monday, it continues to make its way ever so slowly off to the east. so not only will severe thunderstorms be a concern, but you may also have to contend with flooding, ladies, because the secondary storm is expected to move a little slower than the first one. >> not welcome news. folks have to hunker down and try to stay safe best way they can. allison chinchar, thank you so much. >> thanks. now to an update on the war in ukraine. new drone video shows smoke rising from this steel plant in mariupol. the last stand for ukrainian troops defending the city. hundreds of soldiers and civilians have been trapped in that plant for weeks now. a senior ukrainian official says russia is rejecting any proposal to help save the people of mariupol because it is symbolic for the enemy to destroy the city and its defenders. russian forces meantime intensifying their attacks in
5:05 am
the east, but ukrainian forces say they are holding off the russian assault on several fronts. ukraine says its forces fought off 14 russian attacks in the donetsk and luhansk regions over just the past 24 hours. >> yeah. heavy shelling by russian troops struck a key railway hub and supply line. ukraine says russia continues to strengthen its presence in the area. now the situation inside that steel plant in mariupol is growing more desperate by the day. and now, the plant is coming under attack from russian ground forces. cnn correspondent scott mclean has more. >> these are russian troops making a break for cover in the streets near the as of stall steel plant in mariupol. one of them is shot along the way. his fellow soldier attempts to pull him to safety amidst heavy fire. one ukrainian deputy commander says that russia is not only bombarding the plant from the
5:06 am
sky but now also attacking from the ground. >> translator: as of today, there have been attempts to storm the territory of azovstal. this is enemy military equipment, infinity but those attempts have been beaten off as of this hour. >> reporter: the leader said left some cellars and bunkers cut by by rubble. he's not sure if there are survivors trapped inside. he says bombing also hit a field hospital. the number of wounded soldiers to more than 500. the city mayor puts the number of injured at more than 600. how many do you think will survive the next day or two? >> translator: i'm not going to say how long we could be here. but i'm going to say that we're doing everything we can to stabilize them. >> reporter: with the soldiers in the plant are hundreds of civilians, mostly elderly, women and children they say as young
5:07 am
as 4 months old. ukrainian officials are also running low on food and water. thursday, the u.n. secretary general arrived in kyiv determined to broker a deal to safely evacuate civilians from the plant after securing an agreement in principle from vladimir putin in moscow. friday morning, zelenskyy's office announced an operation to evacuate civilians was planned for friday, but no other details. they said a convoy was in route but yet to arrive. he is also hoping for a deal to allow soldiers to get out, though perhaps it's a long shot. would you rather die fighting than surrender yourself to the russians? >> translator: we are not considering the terms of surrender. we are waiting only for guarantees of exit from the territory of the plant. that is if there is no choice but captivity, we will not surrender. >> an adviser to the mayor of
5:08 am
mariupol says getting soldiers evacuated safely would take an international intervention. or a divine one. >> i really want something, something like miracle. main bus from zaporizhzhia, driving towards azovstal, bus your soldiers and get back. >> you don't think that it makes sense for the soldiers at the steel plant just to surrender themselves to the russians? >> it might be. >> that might be the best thing to do? >> yeah. >> now the fighting from that plant is being led by the azov regiment precisely why the adviser to the president said this morning that he doesn't believe the russians are interested in helping anyone get from out from under that plant because the azov regiment for the russians are symbolic. began as an extremist militia
5:09 am
and since then folded into the mainstream ukrainian military, but the russians hold them up as a powerful propaganda tool, trying to make the point that they are part of the denaziification in their words that needs to happen in ukraine. the u.n. secretary general was here in kyiv earlier this week trying to broker some kind of deal between the ukrainians and russians to get people out from under that, but that adviser to the president says that the russians so far have been unwilling to talk and unwilling to compromise. laura? >> scott mclean, thank you for your reporting as always. president biden weighed in on the first american killed fighting alongside ukrainian forces, calling the death of willy joseph cancel very sad. adding that he left behind a little baby. >> willy joseph cancel was just 22, a former marine, who was working as a private contractor. his mother says he volunteered for the mission. now, oren lieberman spoke to
5:10 am
cancel's mother about her son's drive to help others. >> reporter: for willy joseph cancel, this wasn't his war. the 22-year-old had already served his country in the marines, but after russia invaded ukraine, cancel's family says he felt the need to leave tennessee and join the fight. >> even before he left to go to ukraine, he was proud because he wanted to do the right thing and fight alongside the underdogs and help them with things that he thought was important. >> reporter: cancel's mother rebecca cabrera said her son was the one to stand up when everyone else stood back. >> everybody that he's come in contact with in his life say they were proud to serve next to him to be a part of his life. and just everybody remembers who he was. he was a hero. and you know, he was doing the
5:11 am
right thing no matter how people feel about it. >> reporter: cancel's mother says he started working for a private military contractor shortly before the war. cancel agreed to go fight in ukraine. he arrived in a country still defending on multiple fronts mid march. russian forces inching towards kyiv and carrying out more strikes on western ukraine. his mother says she was told he fought with men from different countries before he was killed in action. his body has not been recovered because of the danger. his new brothers in arms mourning his loss. >> makes me feel sad and i'm grateful for his sacrifices. unbelievable that you are able to -- that he was able to go here and put in an ultimate sacrifice for my home country of ukraine. >> reporter: cancel leaves behind a wife and 7 month old baby, a family left without a husband and father. he was the type to fight for what's right regardless of the outcome. he's not the only one.
5:12 am
ukraine's military created international legion for foreign fighters. ukrainian officials said more than 20,000 volunteers and veterans from 52 countries wanted to join. though how many served is unclear. the u.s. sent billions of dollars in weapons in ukraine to help them fight russia but the white house says american citizens should stay out of this fight. >> we know people want to help, but we do encourage americans to find other ways to do so rather than traveling to -- rather than traveling to ukraine to fight there. it is a war zone. it's an active war zone. and we know americans face significant risks, but certainly we know a family is mourning, a wife is mourning and our hearts are with them. >> reporter: cancel's mother says the call was too great. the cause too important, one for which cancel gave his life. >> he knew they needed help. and it was just something that he felt that he could help in because he had the experience and the training and the
5:13 am
knowledge to go and help them. >> reporter: oren lieberman, cnn at the pentagon. >> joining me now is kimberly dozer, a cnn global affairs analyst. thank you for joining us, good morning. my first question to you is are we seeing a new phase in this war where the world is coming to the realization that we're in for a long, drawn-out battle? there's no credible diplomatic track that exists right now, right? and if anything, the war could widen on several fronts. >> absolutely. it seems like ever since secretary of defense austin and secretary of state blinken convened that meeting of 40 nations in ramstein air base that everyone has realized this is going to be something that lasts at least through this year and maybe many more years
5:14 am
because russia has dug in and the kind of atrocities that russia is accused of committing mean that peace talks with ukraine really aren't likely to go anywhere. president zelenskyy has always said that whatever he agrees to at the negotiating table has to be agreed upon, voted upon, by all ukrainian citizens in a referendum afterwards. and i can't see ukrainian citizens okaying anything that, for example, would give up any ukrainian territory. instead, we see things like the british foreign secretary talking about, you know what, ukrainians shouldn't just fight to take territory back to where it was before the february invasion. they should keep going. take back all the territories in the donbas and the crimea. that is a new attitude from the west. >> yeah. so clearly, as you said, both sides are digging in. and it seems like the u.s. has
5:15 am
adopted a new strategy. i wonder what you made of defense secretary lloyd austin's comments that he made on monday in poland in his news conference after his trip to kyiv. take a listen. >> we want to see russia weakened to the degree that it can't do the kinds of things that it has done in invading ukraine. so it has already lost a lot of military capability and a lot of its troops, quite frankly. and we want to see them not have the capability to very quickly reproduce that capability. >> so is this an announcement of a broadening of u.s. strategy where initially it seemed like the u.s. was getting involved to help defend ukraine and now it sounds like there's this long-term goal of damaging russia, at least militarily so that they cannot do something like this again in the future. >> well, the defense secretary is careful never to get out in front of president on anything.
5:16 am
and the pentagon's spokesperson has since those remarks said our policy is not regime change. but speaking from a military perspective, they do want to weaken russia's military because every european official i've spoken to thinks that russia if they're successful in ukraine will keep going. possibly following through with a threat made by a russian general to seize some territory in moldova. a map is circulating around on social media put out by russian outlets and pro-russian activists that shows a new map of russian territory not just in the donbas and the crimea but with a land bridge all the way to moldova. the defense secretary and countries across europe want to put a stop to that. >> yeah. clearly this conflict is far from over. that is the grim reality.

5:21 am
i'm okay. ♪ three times the electorlytes and half the sugar. ♪ pedialyte powder packs. feel better fast. welcome back. some good news for parents with young children. parents like amara and myself have been waiting a long time for this news. kids as young as 6 months through 5 years old may soon be able to get a covid-19 vaccine
5:22 am
as early as this june. that's according to the fda's latest schedule. >> i'm looking forward to that date if it comes to fruition, laura. it comes just days after moderna filed emergency use authorization of their covid vaccine for this age group. cnn's nadia romero joining us now. what more do you know about the possibility of kids under 6 being able to finally get the vaccine? >> reporter: we're talking about 18 million people, our youngest of the population that make up this group that could potentially get the moderna vaccine if fda vaccine advisers recommend this emergency use authorization. moe der that says it's about a quarter of the dose they would use for an adult to account for the size of these children. and they're pointing to the data that the study that they had, a clinical study, with data that just was released. 6,700 kids? that age group participated in this clinical trial. and they say they didn't see not a single death in a very small
5:23 am
number of hospitalizations leading moderna to say that this is safe and effective for kids who are 6 months old all the way up to 5 years old. here is the chief medical officer at moderna explaining why he believes it's safe for your kids, too. >> first of all we looked at safety. as a dad, as a physician, that's obviously what we want to look at first, particularly in this very young group. the safety was really, really reassuring exactly what we have seen in older kids and other population. some injection site pain, little fever, but no excess risk of high fever. so that was very reassuring. john, when we look at antibody levels, we wanted to see levels that were similar to what we found in young adults, those 18 to 24. and that's exactly what we found. so, overall i think this is a very reassuring result and good news. >> reporter: so 38 states are reporting seeing an uptick in covid-19 cases within the last week. we're also seeing some mask
5:24 am
mandates coming back, like in san francisco, the bay area transit implementing their mask mandate until mid july. and so because of that, dr. anthony fauci says, listen, the pandemic is far from over, but we are in a transition phase, transitioning back to a normal way of life without so many mandates, without lockdowns and potentially this vaccine for kids ages 6 months to 5 years old could be another layer of protection that their parents have been waiting for. laura? >> i don't know about a transition phase, but i'm ready for my toddler to get that shot. nadia romero, thank you. all right. tonight the annual white house correspondence dinner will return after a two-year hiatus due to covid. president biden will take extra precautions to avoid catching the attendance. >> this is the first time a sitting president has been at the event with members of the press since 2016. but the widely-attended gala is raising a lot of concerns that it could become a super spreader
5:25 am
event. cnn's jasmine wright joining us now from the white house. hi there, jasmine. as we know, president biden is in that higher risk age group. what kind of precautions will he be taking tonight? >> reporter: that's right. well, he will be taking precautions. but i think one thing we can know for sure is that president biden will be a party time president but with an asterisk. things that the white house identified he will do includes that he will skip the dinner portion, as you can see on the screen here. he will skip the meal during the event. he will arrive later really to limit his exposure to the thousands of people that are expected to be there, about 2,000 is the number we know. and of course he will wear a mask when he is not speaking in that highly-anticipated speech. remember, the president's speech on this night every year is something that people look forward to. of course, it will be streamed live and folks really look for a president of course former president trump disrupted the
5:26 am
tradition and so we know that president biden really has been working until the last hour the white house said yesterday to get this speech in order. he's taken submissions from folks he knows from comedians to speech writers really trying to find the right tune. of course, jen psaki, white house press secretary yesterday said he is funny, he is going to be funny in the speech but also going to strike the right tone, really trying to celebrate free press in the first amendment. it's a reason why he is coming tomorrow despite, of course, concerns that this really large gathering tonight will have for the president, of course, we know he is older age, more susceptible to some of the more negative effects that the covid virus can bring. and so, in addition to those precautions that he's taking, really we know that the white house itself has been pretty strategic, they say, in trying to limit the expose sure that the president has to people who
5:27 am
could potentially be carriers of that covid virus. of course we know that the vice president tested positive just last week and other officials after really a large gathering just a few weeks ago at the gridiron dinner tested positive really in a confluence of events for white house officials. so, it's something that is top of mind for the white house with the president coming to the dinner tonight, but they say they are taking precautions, of course, as the president focuses on trying to get the speech right, trying to meet the moment that he's in and the first time that this white house is having one of these dinners since the pandemic has begun. >> yeah. look, it's been a tough year, right, dealing with this pandemic, the war and of course the economy. i think a lot of people are looking forward to these moments of levity. jasmine wright, thank you. and be sure to join us tonight for our live coverage of the white house correspondent's dinner.
