  • the lane falls of two different storms in two different parts of the world.

  • Headline Today's show.

  • I'm Coral Jesus Welcome.

  • Everyone Watching worldwide will start in the Asian country of Vietnam.

  • Typhoon Molavi struck its east coast on Wednesday.

  • It was the equivalent of a Category two hurricane when it made landfall.

  • Its wind speeds were just over 100 MPH and Vietnam's prime minister expected it would affect a large part of his country as Molavi carried heavy rain along with its dangerous winds.

  • October is part of Vietnam's rainy season, but this has been a particularly destructive year.

  • We told you exactly a week ago how excessive rains had caused deadly flooding and landslides in the country.

  • Typhoon Malawi could make things worse, soaking areas that have already been inundated with rain.

  • It's the fourth named storm system to make landfall in Vietnam this month.

  • And on the other side of the Northern Hemisphere, the U.

  • S.

  • State of Louisiana is weathering its fifth named storm of this busy season.

  • Zeta was expected to make landfall on Wednesday afternoon as a Category two hurricane with wind speeds of around 100 MPH and it was expected to bring rain, the several states in the American south east.

  • The silver lining to this particular system is that it was fast moving that can get things over with faster in the areas it hits, as opposed to slowly turning overhead and lashing them for hours with powerful wind and heavy rain.

  • Before it made landfall in Louisiana, Zeta had hit Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula as a Category one storm.

  • Hurricane Zeta is named for a letter of the Greek alphabet.

  • That's what meteorologists use when they run out of names on their annual list.

  • It follows tropical storms, Crystal Ball and Marco, and Hurricanes Laura and Delta Tau all make landfall in Louisiana this year.

  • It's the first time that state has been hit by five named storms in the same season since record keeping began in 18 51 and Hurricanes ADA tied to record, set in 5 2001 for the most named storms.

  • There were 27 in each year and one for the most times.

  • A single state was hit in a storm season.

  • Florida also saw five storms make landfall in 2005.

  • If you've been hearing the word typhoon and thinking to yourself that looks an awful lot like hurricane.

  • Well, in fact, it is.

  • Typhoons are hurricanes are cyclones.

  • They are the same thing just in different oceans.

  • Ah, lot like hot cake is a flapjack is a pancake is a short stack.

  • If you are west of the Dateline, so west of Hawaii, north of the equator, you're a typhoon.

  • If you're in the Atlantic or the Pacific, around America, you are Ah, hurricane.

  • And if you're around the Indian Ocean or in the Southern Hemisphere, you're a cyclone.

  • So it's not out of the question for a hurricane to become a typhoon if it moves over the date line.

  • In fact, after crossing the international Dateline, Hurricane Genevieve turned into Typhoon Genevieve a few years ago.

  • Restrictions related to coronavirus are tightening up again in Europe.

  • The spread of the disease has sped up in several countries there, and officials are concerned that an increased number of life threatening cases could put a strain on hospitals.

  • German Chancellor Angela Merkel announced a partial locked down on Wednesday.

  • Her country's schools will be allowed to stay open, but its restaurants, bars and clubs will not and fans will not be allowed to attend live sports until the lock down ends.

  • It's currently scheduled to last the month of November.

  • Though that could change.

  • Switzerland has banned gatherings of more than 50 people and required restaurants to close.

  • By 11 PM Italy is requiring restaurants to close by 6 p.m. And movie theaters and gyms have been shut down as well.

  • There have been protests, some of them peaceful, some of them violent.

  • The worldwide shutdowns and lockdowns have been put in place to slow the spread of coronavirus, save lives and give medical officials mawr time to ramp up testing and prepare for new cases.

  • But some economists have said they don't know if the shutdowns have been worth the impact they've had on economies.

  • And critics say they've caused more problems in society than Covad 19 has.

  • So there's a lot of controversy surrounding both the disease itself and the responses to it, and because those responses have been so different from place to place, they've had a particularly pronounced effect on travel.

  • The world is a patchwork off travel restrictions, closed borders, quarantines, pre travel testing requirements, all of which keep changing.

  • It's enough to put people off travel all together, and that's damaging for the aviation sector for tourism, for the whole global economy.

  • However, one solution to travel could be a passport.

  • Not this kind, but this a digital health passport.

  • The APP has been developed by the Commons Project Foundation in partnership with the World Economic Forum.

  • The concept is simple enough.

  • A traveler checks the app to see what the Kober 19 rules are at their destination.

  • For example, it may require a PCR test 24 hours before travel.

  • The APP tells the traveler where they can get a government approved Kober 19 Test on upload that test result to the APP if negative, The APP generates a Q R code confirming the travelers compliance to be scanned by airline staff and border officials.

  • However, testing prior to travel has its limitations.

  • At that moment, that person was safe to fly or migrate or whatever, whatever it is, because they were PCR negative, which is probably meaningless if they were about to turn PCR positive five minutes after the test.

  • Common past says screening minimizes the risk and is already a requirement for entry into many countries.

  • A trial of their app is underway for volunteer passengers flying with United Airlines and Cathy Pacific between London, New York, Hong Kong and Singapore.

  • If it goes well, common past hopes more airlines and airports will use it in the future.

  • We've actually managed to convene over 50 countries that have come together through dialogue that led up to common pass most of the world's biggest airlines, most of the world's biggest airports.

  • And I think one of the realizations that they've come to through these discussions is this kind of system has to work in a global, interruptible way.

  • It can't only work within one bubble or with one travel corridor.

  • If a covert 19 vaccine is successfully developed, common past hopes travelers will be able to log their vaccination into the APP.

  • Yet there are concerns too little is known about vaccine efficacy.

  • I wouldn't feel comfortable as a sort of minister of health to be, you know, stamping and sealing the legislation on the use of antiquity passports.

  • On this basis, immunity passports are pie in the sky, at least for now, helping people to take to the skies with an app that simplifies and coordinates Kovar 19 travel restrictions is at least on the horizon.

  • Anna Stewart, CNN London 12th trivia.

  • In Which nation would you find the Ninja Blue Reef, Australia, Madagascar, New Zealand or the Philippines?

  • The Ning Blue Reef is in western Australia, while the Great Barrier Reef is off the country's northeast.

  • We're diving on a newly discovered or newly mapped 500 m high coral reef.

  • Mhm, mhm.

  • Okay, E se Chipmunk Cafe.

  • You might think cafe like where you can have a latte with a tabby.

  • This is a little different.

  • A Georgia food critic built a mini cafe for the mini chipmunk who lives outside her home.

  • She's named him Thelonious Monk because he's a chipmunk and she's built him everything from a barbecue to Ramen noodle bar.

  • The builder says this has helped her get through the pandemic when she couldn't get to restaurants.

  • Is it the GATT rated?

  • It's rodent rated and rodent rated to its for a good closets.

  • Open to guests of all stripes, and they don't have to chip in.

  • Just scamper in for a meal that'll make him go nuts.

  • I'm Carlos, whose for CNN 10 were visiting a park today Park High School.

  • It's for the students living in Livingston, Montana.

  • We hope your Thursday is amazing.
