the jury has gone home. they are not going to finish tonight and they've been focused on video. they apps the judge if they could review some of the video. in this case, the judge said, go ahead. view it as many times as you want. that happened over the objection of the defense. the defense did not want them to see it over and over because of course it shows kyle rittenhouse fatally shooting to man. and then maiming a 3rd, he claim self defense. so the crux of this case is whether he was justified in those confrontations. a, his complaint was that he was being pursued and that he had to fight back in his words, to save his own life. and it's the video that he's at the center of this miss trial issue. the defense says that the prosecution gave them a low resolution version of drone video that really captures much of what happened that evening. the judge doesn't seem inclined to grant that mr. nobody's taking it under consideration. that's actually the 2nd time the defense has asked for

2:21 am
vancouver, jody. so we understand that a state of emergency has now been declared. what does this mean on the ground and how will it help the rescue effort? jody. well, a state of emergency being declared provincially and not unusual over these last couple of years. we had a state of emergency declared for kind of at 19 than one with the wildfires 4 months ago. and yet again now with these unprecedented floods, as you mentioned, some cities cut off completely. it's not unusual for highways to be washed out one here, one there perhaps in a weather event. what every highway is, is washed out currently or been hit by a mudslide. completely flooded, impassable, at the very least as are some of the train route sepi. rail roots are also damaged with debris and mud slides and, and damage that is only now being assessed. so supply chain is a concern within the state of emergency that was declared by premier john horgan here in british columbia. it gives the government the ability to take his some rather extreme measures without going through the legislature. and that usually has

2:23 am
would take time to, to gather. so really this, it gives the government of british columbia ability and opportunity to do what is most necessary in the most urgent of fashions. it starts with rescuing the people who have been trapped and unable to return to their homes or those who have lost their homes completely and have been evacuated and to help them then as these flood waters. hopefully some side, somewhat a bacon, assess the damage and then use the canadian forces to clean up and to rebuild. and this is a story that is ongoing, as you said, more rain in the forecast here on the west coast of canada or a tor jody vans life or stay in vancouver. jodi thank you. air pollution is affecting the lives of millions of people across south asia. clouds of small gar enveloping countries including india and pakistan. and india's capital new delhi schools have been closed indefinitely than many businesses of shop at doors. the equality and the hor, in pakistan's, even worse monitors recently rank
