  • Welcome to CNN 10 on this Wednesday, January 27th.

  • I'm Carl Jesus.

  • Thank you for taking 10 minutes for us.

  • Severe weather in the American South east leads off today's show as we put this program together.

  • A search and rescue operation was underway in the U.

  • S.

  • State of Alabama.

  • On Monday night, a deadly storm tore through the town of Fulton Dale, a northern suburb of Birmingham.

  • It killed at least one person and injured dozens of others.

  • Fulton, Dale's fire chief, said 17 people there were taken to the emergency room for different injuries, and some of those are critical.

  • One witness told al dot com that it looked like a bomb had gone off in the town of 9000 people, causing serious damage to almost all of the homes there.

  • One county officials said there wasn't much warning.

  • The storm spawned a tornado described as large and extremely dangerous.

  • It ripped up a hotel Torre off part of a churches roof, struck a high school, damaged or destroyed homes and businesses, and scattered power lines and debris across the roads.

  • The mayor of CenterPoint, another Birmingham suburb, reported quite a bit of damage in his city of 16,000 people.

  • And while he said that Tuesday would be a long day of assessing damage and covering up places where walls, roofs or windows were missing, he was grateful that there were no injuries.

  • In CenterPoint, schools were closed in the region.

  • Survivors said they were grateful to be alive and that the community was pulling together to help one another.

  • The storm system prompted tornado watches and warnings in Alabama and Georgia as it made its way across the region.

  • And as it turned north, it was expected to bring heavy snow to the mid Atlantic coast on Tuesday night, when severe weather strikes one of the most common questions weekend.

  • What's the difference between a watch and a warning?

  • Well, just for comparison's sake, let's take the stop light green light yellow light, red light.

  • Sometimes the National Weather Service will issue a hazardous weather outlook and advisory treat.

  • This is a green light.

  • Know that the possibility of rough weather is there, but go about your day as you would just stay alert.

  • But as conditions tend to ripen, we may see a tornado watch issued by the National Weather Service.

  • Use this with more caution.

  • This means conditions are favorable for tornado development, and so you need to know what you should dio in case a tornado strikes.

  • That's where the warning comes in.

  • If the radar has indicated a tornado or someone has spotted a tornado in progress, that's when the tornado warning is issued, and you should get to your safe place immediately.

  • Stop what you're doing and seek shelter.

  • I'm Matt Rivers in Manaus, Brazil city in the middle of the Amazon rainforest, where the health system has all but collapsed due to a particularly brutal second wave off Cove in 19 going on right now.

  • As a result, the local government has imposed a seven day locked down, banning all non essential activity, which is why streets like this one behind me, normally quite crowded, are now quite empty.

  • And this comes at a particularly fraught time for Brazil overall, which in recent days has seen some of its highest daily death counts from the coronavirus since the pandemic began.

  • I'm Salma Abdelaziz in London.

  • Health Secretary Matt Hancock has said this is not the moment to ease restrictions.

  • His comments came after new data showed that infection rates are beginning to slow, but the key indicators are still very poor.

  • Hospitalization rates are high.

  • There's more people on ventilators now than there were during the first wave of the pandemic authorities air concerned about variants around the world.

  • That's why hotel quarantines air being considered by officials and, of course, the vaccination program.

  • Millions more people need to be vaccinated before these restrictions can be lifted.

  • I'm Cyril Vanier in Paris.

  • European countries are furious at pharmaceutical giant AstraZeneca after it announced that it would be delivering far fewer doses of its vaccine to the EU than expected, delaying its roll out until the end of March.

  • The European health commissioner says drugmakers working on the continent will now have to notify the block before exporting vaccines out of Europe.

  • The EU had preordered and pre financed 400 million doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine, which is expected to be approved by the European Medicines Agency here on Friday.

  • I'm David McKenzie in Johannesburg.

  • Dr Anthony Fauci says that vaccines in the current form should be effective against variants discovered off covert 19 here in South Africa and the UK Now that good news is backed up by Madonna, though they say they're vaccine could be slightly less effective against the South African variant, and they are developing a booster shot now.

  • Despite this good news, President Biden has extended the travel restrictions to the U.

  • S.

  • To include South Africa, which has been dealing with a dramatic second wave pushed by this mawr transmissible variant.

  • 12th trivia.

  • Which of these dog breeds is believed to be the oldest Afghan hound, Alaskan malamute, border collie or Chihuahua?

  • Many scientists believe the Afghan hound originated in Afghanistan and around 6000 BC, making it the oldest brain on this list.

  • There's widespread disagreement over what the oldest breeds in the world is.

  • Some scientists say it's the Akita Inu, the Basin Ji or the Chinese Solu Key.

  • And while the relationship between people and dogs is known to go back thousands of years, researchers don't know exactly when or why Dogs became domesticated as man's best friend.

  • But there are some new theories about this, and a related study was just published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

  • What researchers did was compared genetic information gathered from ancient human remains with the info gathered from ancient dog remains.

  • They say that some of the dogs found in the Americas have lineage that could be traced back to ancient Siberian dogs.

  • So from that they concluded that when people migrated from North East Asia to the Americas, the dogs came with them.

  • Scientists believe this happened more than 15,000 years ago over the Bering Land Bridge, which no longer exists.

  • The study's lead author theorized that the dogs could have helped the people carry their goods faster, and she suggested that people and dogs might have gotten together in the first place when humans allowed wolves thio eat whatever food people threw away.

  • There's no definitive proof of this, but researchers air hoping to search for older dog bones in the region of Siberia to get MAWR evidence.

  • So I guess you could say that some scientific studies have gone to the dogs.

  • Hey, speaking of dogs, it's America's first Dogs that are the subject of our last story today.

  • Champ in Major have arrived at the White House there, the canine best friends of President Joe Biden.
