tv   CNN Newsroom With Fredricka Whitfield  CNN  September 18, 2022 11:00am-12:00pm PDT

11:00 am
go to and see how golo can change your life. that's hello, everyone. thank you for watching. i'm fredricka whitfield. welcome this sunday. our top news, we begin this hour with heavy hearts as the world prepares for the funeral and final good-bye to queen elizabeth ii. u.s. president biden along with the first lady briefly visiting the queen's coffin today offering a silent reflection to the monarch he first met back in 1982. biden then signaling -- signing, rather, the official condolence book at lancaster house and offering these words about the queen's reign.
11:01 am
>> we've had an opportunity to meet with an awful lot of consequential people, but i can say that the ones who stand out in your mind are those whose relationship and interaction with you are consistent with their reputation. when the queen had us to the castle for tea and she kept offering me more and i kept eating everything she put in front of me. she was the same as her image. decent, honorable, and all about service. our hearts go out to the royal family, to king charles and all of the family. it's a loss, a giant hole. sometimes you think you'll never overcome it.
11:02 am
but, as i've told the king, she will be with him every step of the way, every minute, every moment, and that's a reassuring notion. so to all of the people of england and the united kingdom, our hearts go out to you. you were fortunate to have had her for 70 years. we all were. the world is better for her. thank you. >> mr. president, why does she remind you of your mother? >> just because of the way she touched when she leaned over, the way she had that look like, are you okay, anything i can do for you? what do you need? and then, also, make sure you do what you're supposed to do. >> what do you think she meant to the wider world beyond the uk, mr. president? >> i think, look, the american press has heard me say for a long time, i think the thing that is maybe too much if you excuse the expression the irish
11:03 am
of it, it's about treating people with dignity. i talk about how my mother and father thought that everyone, no matter who they were, what they're station, where they were from, deserved to be treated with dignity. that's exactly what she communicated, the way she walked by her staff, the way she acted. i think what she gave is a sense of service. we all owe something within our capacity to do that will make not just the world better but your neighborhood better, your household better. that's what she communicated to me. it was an honor to meet her. an honor to meet her. >> and right now tens of thousands of mourners continue to pay their respects ahead of tomorrow's funeral. cnn's kaitlan collins and kate
11:04 am
williams are in london for the ceremonies. president biden marking this solemn occasion. so what is next on his schedule? >> reporter: he just was at buckingham palace where king charles is hosting for tomorrow for a reception. it was a little bit more casual than it typically would be, something of that affair, where they were visiting. obviously his first face-to-face meeting with king charles since the conversation he was talking about where he was consoling him about the loss of the queen and saying just because she's gone doesn't mean she won't always be with you. that comes after earlier he had been at the lancaster house signing that condolence book where he was making those remarks talking about not just what his experience with the queen was like about you what he believed she meant for the world. you saw the president signing that condolence book in the state dining room. the first led also signed a separate one in the drawing room at lancaster house. we saw a little bit about the
11:05 am
message that she left, what she believed the queen's impression on the world was. she lived for the people, with wisdom and grace. we will never forget her warmth, kindness and the conversations we shared. obviously that comes after the queen hosted president biden and first lady biden for a private tea last year at windsor castle after the g7 summit. they did have their last private meeting with her at the time and just talking about the impression that see left on him and president biden summed it up by saying she was someone who when you met her she lived up to the reputation that she has. >> yes, some really poignant thoughts and nice to see his handwriting on that condolence book. so, kate, the final preparations are under way for tomorrow's funeral ceremonies even though we know now the plans have been in place for decades. what should we expect? >> reporter: yes, fredricka, tomorrow is going to be such a great day in british history.
11:06 am
we have never seen the like in london. not sure many people can remember that, the queen's coronation, not so many of the king's funeral and in 1965 winston churchill but that was different. this is our first royal state funeral for 70 years and this is such a significant moment. it will be a great moment of pageantry and this great meeting of world leaders having this reception kaitlan was talking about, 200, 300 world leaders. we don't know who is here. we will see perhaps the condolence book online and this huge global event which reflects the queen's diplomatic efforts. a million miles, 120 countries she visited. she only stopped doing overseas visits in her 80s and was the international queen and she really had such an impact on the world stage.
11:07 am
a great moment the westminster abbey where the queen was crowned in 1952, 1953. she was married in 1947. she will now be laid to rest in westminster abbey and where her father, her mother, her sister and her husband are all buried. she will rejoin them. >> kaitlan, it is interesting to hear biden's thoughts because of her service, her service to country and family. >> he's not the first u.s. president to say that she -- the queen reminded him of his mother or a grandmother figure as michelle obama after they spent some time with the queen but was
11:08 am
asked what was it about her that made him think of his mother and said it was really her mannerisms, the way she had this look as to ask are you okay, do you have everything you need? he also said that she gave a look of make sure you're doing what you're supposed to be doing. what she was like in that private meeting, talked about personal stories, she inquired about world politics, thoughts on russia's leader putin as well. just this conversation that they had and that meeting was remarkable in the sense of the aspect of grief here. she was the first u.s. president she had been around since prince philip had died. now he is meeting with king charles.
11:09 am
was talking about consoling him about the loss of his mother and what that is like. president biden himself is someone who has dealt with grief in his life and talked about those whose experiences have shaped him as well. it's an interesting thing to look at. >> kate, this condolence book signed by the dignitaries who are coming to town pay homage to her, what happens to that book? >> i'm hoping we'll be able to see it, see all these messages, very meaningful personal messages just as kaitlan was saying it's really personal what president biden was talking about with the queen. working just two days before she passed meeting the new prime minister liz truss. i think one of her great moments before she passed when she was hosting the g7 with president biden and she had a cake there
11:10 am
and she was at many of the beautiful sites -- >> the sword. >> reporter: she cut the cake with. she was able to meet the world leaders and she has touched so many and so many of them have met her repeated times. i would love to see that book and hope it is released. >> that moment with the sword i think a lot of people remember that. i know how to use this. putting everybody in place. that was fun. kaitlan collins, kate williams, thank you. pomp and pageantry have spanned the ten days of mourning for the queen and it will all be elevated even more as queen elizabeth makes her final journey through the streets of london tomorrow. the queen will continue to lie in state at westminster hall until 5:30 eastern time monday
11:11 am
morning. her coffin will then travel with an escort from the royal army navy to westminster abbey. the royal family following on footstep close behind. a funeral service will begin at 6:00 a.m. eastern attended by 2,000 people including world leaders, public figures, royals and dignitaries and then after the service the queen's coffin will depart westminster abby and travel around the wellington arch. it will cut through london's government district passing downing street to the wellington arch. the queen will be driven 25 miles west of the capital to windsor castle. it is there the queen lived the last two years of her life. and once in windsor, the state hearse will drive along the picturesque avenue dubbed the long walk where thousands of onlookers will bid a final farewell. the king and other royals will join the procession on foot. the king's troop horse artillery
11:12 am
will travel to st. georges chapel. a separate more intimate service will take place around 11:00 a.m. eastern time. the royal family and members of the royal household and personal staff will be in attendance. the queen's coffin will then be committed to the royal vault below the chapel where many royal family members have been laid to rest. a private burial will be held for the family monday evening. the queen will be buried in the king george vi memorial chapel alongside her late husband, prince philip, who she was married to for 73 years. so all of this will require massive security, of course. cnn chief law enforcement analyst jon miller and royal commentator emily nash. good to see both of you.
11:13 am
quite a day tomorrow. we're just hours away from the start of the ceremonies. what is happening to make sure the queen's final journey remains safe for everyone? >> it's been happening for a long time throughout the other ceremonies. there's a complex police plan that accounts for what you would expect which is crowds, traffic and movement. behind that the counterterrorism overlay and things like having bomb squad units pre-positioned to move in quickly in a place you won't be able to do an evacuate or halt an event in a normal proceed edprocedure, loo chemicals, radiation detectors, biological screening that's done every day. there's a lot going on including
11:14 am
leads teams, every threat that's called in going out to find the caller, assess whether it's a threat or poison pen. all of those wheels turning tomorrow. >> emily, americans may be very familiar with westminster abbey, the site of so many royal events in the past. there are other sites that hold a lot of importance. why is the wellington arch so significant and important here? >> it was the original entrance so when wellington defeated napoleon, it's a historic monument. the moment the queen will leave london and leave the palace
11:15 am
behind, will be transferred into the state hearse, is about bringing the final close and moving on to the second part of the funeral day. >> it really is a great distance. on the map it may not seem like it. this is quite the course here, john, which means you have tens of thousands of people expected to line the streets. talk about the challenges all of this presents as to how detail pays attention to everyone on foot, everything and anything that is moving beyond the procession. >> from a security standpoint, from a counterterrorism standpoint, a multilayer problem here. one, you have the royals, who, of course, are at the center of this but also a potential
11:16 am
target, also a security risk. in fact, the metropolitan police in london have a special unit that is dedicated to keeping track of people who have threatened royals, obsessed with royals, elaborate fantasies about them. they will have to figure out where are all of those people, who is with them, are they in the crowd? it comes with those complications. the crowd itself beyond the royals is a major vulnerability and that is in a city where they've had a crowd attack, with ramming attack with vehicles, knife attacks with explosive attacks the crowd that stretches for miles involving tens of thousands of people makes its own self a target where you can create an incident where you
11:17 am
don't have to attack the church, the royals, a world leader. you are attacking the event which is attacking the monarchy, the queen and the uk by attacking the crowd. and they have a full understanding of that and this is where the metropolitan police have to rise to the occasion, a department with tough morale problems. this will give them a chance to rise to what is the most complex security challenge that any metropolitan police department has faced probably in reseven history. >> it is terrible that you have to prepare for it but, of course, you have to prepare for it. so, emily, i want you to help me again dot the map of all the significant markers along the route. the queen will travel to windsor castle. help us explain the importance of windsor castle. >> it dates back 1,000 years, the seat of the british monarchy.
11:18 am
she regarded as home. she spent more time there over the past decade than at buckingham palace, would go there thursday to monday, most weeks while she was not at one of her other residences and it's particularly poignant because it's where she spent lockdown with the duke of edinburgh before he passed away. as kate was saying earlier, she had always intended to be buried alongside her late husband. she will be joining him in the royal vault. they will later be moved to the king george vi memorial chapel which she mingsed for her parents and they will be reunited. this is st. george's chapel that contains ten former british monarchs.
11:19 am

get ready - our most popular battery is even more powerful. the stronger, lasts-longer energizer max. this breaking news out of puerto rico. the entire island is without power as hurricane fiona with wind gusts of 100 miles an hour. strengthened into a category 1 storm earlier this afternoon. forecasters say there is the potential for life-threatening mud slides and landslides. live from puerto rico. pretty miserable conditions there.
11:24 am
what's happening? >> reporter: the winds picked up and the rain. breaking news confirming there is now an island wide power outage. the governor confirming this. the big question now will be can this now private company that handled the utilities here in puerto rico get power up and running again quickly for the folks on the island. as you mentioned we are also keeping an eye out for flash flooding as well as mud slides but i have to tell you timing here is interesting because we were almost five years to the date hurricane maria struck this island and so what i'm hearing from people i've talked to today is pure anxiety and trauma. we went down to caguas, puerto rico, south of san juan, where the majority of customers were in that area. we talked to a family who lost
11:25 am
power at 8:00 this morning. i want you to hear from a person who had to leave her home to stay with her son because it's safer there. i will warn you, it's a little bit dark and hard to see because there's not power. she speaks to what she is feeling now that the power has gone out. listen. >> she says when the power goes out she gets real anxious. she gets really tense, worried. she's staying here because she left her house. she's worried what she will find at her house. >> reporter: and while we were there a wind gust came in and that anxiety was just palpable. after hurricane maria they were a year without power. so, again, yes, a lot of concern about mud slides. a lot of concern about flash flooding. there's a river nearby that family. they are monitoring that closely as the rain and the wind picks up and fiona gets ready to get
11:26 am
near the southern part of the island where hurricane maria came in and where we also saw powerful earthquakes in 2020. so this is an island that understands this is a category 1 hurricane right now but they're not taking any chances because a lot of trauma still lingers from the natural disaster that has struck here before. fredricka? >> you said just five years ago roughly, september 16, 2017. it's almost like it was yesterday. it's such a vivid memory. thank you so much. let's bring in cnn's chad myers who is tracking the storm. chad, oh, my gosh, what is fiona doing right now and what is its potential? it has been an overachiever. the water so very warm down there. nothing wearing it out. there hasn't been a different tropical storm to kind of cool the water off so this is now an 85-mile-per-hour sustained with wind gusts well over that. even a measured wind gust of
11:27 am
103. catastrophic flooding expected. those are the top line words what the hurricane center put out at 2:00. catastrophic flooding expected. between 15 and 20 inches. i've measured some of it on radar, seeing some spots with ten on the ground already. here is the big town down to the south that is the area seeing the eye wall ponce. the center of the eye has to make landfall for that to happen. already a transmission line from the power plant has gone away. 100% of the island is in the dark. ponce, there you go, 103-mile-per-hour wind gusts. and the heavy rainfall making flash flooding but certainly also, fred, making mud slides. this is a very topographical country, area. this is up and down, a lot of up and down mountains and valleys, very deep and almost small valleys like you would see in
11:28 am
west virginia and some spots this is the area that's going to pick up that 10 to 15 inch rainfall. some storm surge but maybe only about 3 feet and then it turns into a major hurricane. category 3. there is bermuda right there. maybe a near miss but close enough to watch it. you are in the cone, bermuda, for sure. luckily turning away from the mainland u.s. >> let's hope it continues to take that right turn and dissipate. not even hitting bermuda or anywhere else. thank you so much. a massive typhoon is bearing down on southern japan bringing torrential rain and strong winds. this typhoon made landfall earlier today. more than 2 million people ordered to evacuate the island of kyushu because of possible landslides and flooding. millions more are in the storm's path. weather officials in japan warn unprecedented rainfall, high waves and storm surges could

11:35 am
of people that are arriving dehydrated, haven't had access to proper food while they make the several days' trip. the mayor has been critical of the republican governors who are not coordinating with the city of new york or any other jurisdictions saying it is making helping people and connecting them with resources really difficult. he was on cnn earlier today describing the condition people have been arriving in. >> we should be clear this is a humanitarian crisis created by human hands. it is an all hands on deck moment. we are all supposed to come together and coordinate. it is unfortunate when you watch government misrepresent where you are sending people. in some cases we have those
11:36 am
covid positive on the buses, individuals who were dehydrated, didn't have proper food. some were even tagged like would tag an animal. >> reporter: so mayor adams speaking about the lack of coordination. the city having to now set up people with resources. similar challenges are being felt in other states. people needing shelter to be connected to legal services and as these drop-offs by the republican governors show no sign of stopping anytime soon. six more buses arrived at port authority this morning. fred? >> gloria, do we know anymore about the mayor says some people were tagged. in what way? >> reporter: yes. so we actually have seen the reports and have seen video of migrants who have arrived with a wrist band on their arms, basically given a bar code, and this is just one of the things that has really outraged people
11:37 am
here in new york. public officials and many of the volunteers that have been trying to help people arriving. that's what the mayor was talking about, describing it as a way you would tag an animal, people are wearing wrist bands with numbers on them that obviously evokes really bad memories and really negative images about the way people are being treated. >> gloria pazmino, thank you so much. president volodymyr zelenskyy says ukraine has found torture chambers in reclaimed areas of northeast ukraine. details on that. limited premium. unlimited hotspot data. my point of sale is on point.

11:40 am
just a couple dozen more questions, lindsey. don't forget to pack your phone charger for tomorrow morning's flight. it's plugged in right over there. insomnia can impact both my days and my nights. that's why i take quviviq nightly. quviviq can help you fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer, and more sleep at night may mean feeling less tired during the day. quviviq works differently than medication you may have taken in the past. quviviq is thought to target one of the biological causes of insomnia. overactive wake signals. do not take quviviq if you have narcolepsy. don't drink alcohol while taking quviviq or drive or operate heavy machinery until you feel fully alert. quviviq may cause temporary inability to move or talk or hallucinations while falling asleep or waking up. quviviq may cause sleepiness during the day. quviviq may lead to doing activities while not fully awake that you don't remember the next day, like walking, driving and making or eating food. worsening depression including suicidal thoughts may occur. the most common side effects are headaches and sleepiness. it's quviviq. ask your doctor if it's right for you.

11:42 am
they fled during ukraine's counter offensive. it follows the grim discovery of a mass burial site in the eastern city of izium. authorities say they found at least 440 graves and some of the bodies show signs of torture. cnn's nick paton walsh joins us live now. what more are you learning about the torture chambers? you showed us the horrible grave sites, but what more is being learned about the torture chambers? >> reporter: yes, fredricka this is part of the horrifying body of accusations and evidence ukrainian officials are finding as they move into areas occupied by russian forces for months. torture chambers appear to be in former detention centers, filtration centers used by russian forces when they held an area often it seems looking for pro-ukrainian sympathizers, former military members, sort of making sure there were no
11:43 am
potential threats, it seems, in the area they control. the devices appear, according to ukraine officials like electric shocks and grisly images of the kind of prison cages people were held in as well. appalling conditions, appalling treatment certainly. the russian government has made no comment on this. i should say a long history in chechnya and other places they've been deployed of using such kind of tactics and you reference that mass burial site in izium. today they said it will take them two weeks to exhume all the bodies there. it seems as they slowly do so they find increased evidence of the mistreatment of people and possible signs of torture, according to ukrainian officials. fredricka? >> nick, what's the latest with ukraine's counter offensive? >> reporter: i mean, there appears to be continued progress, slight, hard to be totally sure of. on the other side of a river, complex but important,
11:44 am
essentially now seems increasingly in ukrainian hands. they've crossed over to the eastern side of it. it's important because it means they can push to the south and come at the russians from the north in a particular direction they may not have been expecting. there's other progress it seems, possibly where i'm standing in kramatorsk and tense situations in the south according to ukrainian officials. no massive leaps forward but it does seem russia is tcontinuall on its back foot because of this ukrainian momentum. fredricka. >> nick paton walsh, thank you so much. still ahead, the corgis and the queen. the loyal companions were by her side spanning her 70-year reign. a look at what happens to her beloved royal pups.
