kilometers now after making landfill in the coastal province of georgia, young. thousands of people have already been moved to emergency shelters is also full thing. the shut down of some of china's most important transport centers. authorities have counseled flights in the chinese commercial hubbard, shanghai, and neighboring coastal areas. they've also suspended rail services. large container ships have been removed from young, sun port, one of the world's busy shipping centers. so arnie is a ship captain and the managing director of a shipping firm called constellation marine services. he explains the effect the storms having on trade and supply lines. the stacks of containers, which are in the board already. so the 1st, the regardless of couple of days ago, which would have already been done in black. now i expect as much as possible. again, 3 again to greenwich,
4:03 pm
stand up. that means there's no way these things are going to remain. so you would see some ganges collapse that sets up if you asked me. it's going to be a really, really difficult going to be of a difficult time for the shipping traffic. i would say ideally it should be at least a week or more. busy deliverable things even going to be normal . large one being a lot of the center. i wouldn't be the chairman parish, regardless. biggest liability for the refrigerator meats and fruits and medicines. chocolate coming out of regions in relief every day that can these huge deal because of that stuff up in front of the board in off the baby stuff and coming into the hall. but they're not able to get on the ships and move to the
4:04 pm
destination from the live off. but the biggest challenge and then of course that is what damage and also to damage to the covers up get the highest respect, high up and collapses of what that means. and what along the board, because maybe downfall. so then what absorption so that my son damage to cobble left him all the time. now with melinda lew, who's the basing bureau chief for niecy could help you with this miss. they were on the program. i mean, it's hard to spin, floods as a positive story when millions are effected across china. yes, the problem with this typhoon is not only that it's reeking economic have in some key parts of china. but also that it comes at a very delicate time. if 1st of all comes just just a few days after the massive flooding and central china, which is just prompted the lives of
4:05 pm
a 1000000 people and killed by not just killed people, but created images that then went viral on social media. some very, very graphic images of people drowning who apparently drowned in the subway system some of the nightmares. ok, so we've got, we've got a kind of a logical trauma going on here as well as disruption. but there's also political significance. and the point of that is possibly, you know, going to play out over coming month and date. i mean, let's just talk about these pictures because obviously even the chinese state media con, hide exactly what's happening across its country. when so many people are actually affected. so how is this actually being related to people at home, either through the print press or the television, and which is something you comment on, on your international,
4:06 pm
in your international magazine? yes. in the 1st of all, this is happening on a weekend, so it's possibly not going to be fully evident what the, what the media and message messaging and shaping is, is going to focus on. what typically, typically, natural disasters are, are reported. what, what, what the chinese domestic media has to be very careful about is to, is in the allocation of blame. you know, of course, patterns happen all the time. flooding happens all the time. people do die and natural disasters. the blame on mother nature. that's one thing, but in the, in the current case, there's also a possibility that if, if, if things seem to go wrong, if the handling of the preparedness is not,
4:07 pm
is not up to par, then the government might be blamed for i'm not saying that yet. yeah. we're still in the impact of this. yeah, so linda, i appreciate that, of course, that the blame game is always something that the chinese authorities try to keep away from certainly until a few months down the line. but it is there. i say it raining on the parade of the chinese communist party, especially when they're celebrating their santini. this does not sort of bode very well and this is a community in a country that believes in or suspicious signs. absolutely, and that's, that's very much part of part of this story. this is a very critical year coming year and a half 11 could say that it had been kicked the july 1st anniversary of the
4:08 pm
1st century of the chinese communist party. and they're already talking about the 2nd century. but for china's top meters, she jumping this next year and a half is going to be very, very critical. politically. why is that? because in the autumn of 2022 is party. the chinese communist party will hold a very crucial party congress. normally this is where succession scenarios are. start to emerge. this is where the big strategy shift or, or reinforced or, or unveiled. and for she jumping at the next part of congress. he is, he is expected to try to set himself up for a very unusual 3rd term as head of the party. now this is something that neither his predecessor nor his predecessors, predecessor did. they are the person who,
4:09 pm
who was most like she jumping in terms of like power profile would be mileage on himself. and there is every sign that she's paying is setting himself up to be on par with mouth in the sort of pantheon of chinese communist leaders. and it is the outcome is not yet assured, because even at the same time that he wants to prolong his own grip on power, he's definitely been promoting a personality called very mild, like a mouse like but he is not getting younger. so he also, in order to protect his own legacy, should have to start getting instructors lined up. but that's a very, very tricky business for the, for the chinese communist party. it's the achilles heel of the party. because as soon as you have an era parent, then that person becomes very vulnerable because of the leader in tower can blame
4:10 pm
everything on that. and the fact that person bring someone else up and, and so on and so on. and, and we've seen many times in the past where things did not go as they were supposed to go. ok low as you met. yeah, superstitious chinese. they look at natural disasters as well as economic and foreign policy and diplomacy set backs as a sort of omen of the leaders grip on the mandate of heaven. but we shall have to see what does happen in the coming was certainly something to look forward to the apps. belinda lee from newsweek, joining us in beijing. thank you. now the talk means also for cause to hit the tokyo olympics. it's already for the rescheduling of some vents, such as rubbing, but it's not the only extreme weather athletes have to endure our report. andy richardson has more on japan's heat wife. it's not just limpy and stealing the heat in tokyo. the locals make sure they get up early for their sunday morning game
4:11 pm
of tennis. on friday, a russian archer fainted. an intense heat midway through her events and tennis willed number one. never jock, of ich said. the sweltering conditions during his opening match with a toughest it ever experienced. i think some people from other color country, i'm not good for playing outside in such a you know, very hot weather go singles. it's takes over 3 hours or more. so it's too hard to play. i agree with him. organizes insist athlete help is paramount, but the daytime events are sometimes necessary for a lot of the competition schedule has been built were possible depending on the, on the sport to, to accommodate the will avoid the hardest parts of the day, but that's not possible with every sport, and on top of that there's really extensive heat counter measures across all of the training and all of the competition. the 1964 took your lympics,
4:12 pm
took place in the cooler month of october, but the demands of tv networks mean july and august, and now the preferred time for the games organizes use a measurement koby wet, spoke globe temperature. it's effectively a combination of heat and humidity. anything over $28.00 experts say can be stressful for an athlete. and that number's been hitting 30 and 31 in tokyo. the japanese environments agency actually issued a heat stroke warning, telling the public not to exercise during the middle of the day. that is not an option for many olympic athletes. competitors did know they were heading into extreme conditions and many have spent time preparing in heat chambers like this one. when somebody is closing in the heat. davey after one to 2 weeks. so we've already be some very clear changes. if an ascii cannot prepare for the heat before the kill all before any competition is so the same, think you will experience a massive dig,

4:19 pm
that's right to the turkish officials are confirming that the time is coming from the y p g. but when it comes to way p just to hell is distribution is a little bit complicated. because y p g is enjoying the support from both russia and the usa was 2 countries are being considered by turkey as allies just the texas to please. yes. so they have been carried out from total pounds, which is under the protection under the control of russia and the syrian government, which means that the 2 actors also protecting white piece by the turkish foot administrator for the ministry and the defense so far didn't national russia because it has concern that any escalation between and and moscow called have a negative impact on the daily construction in italy, we're 4500000 people living there. and that is potentially quickly got anyway, with the refugees over turkey was turkey. hosting already for media effigies. on the other hand the the tag has been carried out by an anti tank guide to me which
