Europe is a continent facing a crisis. 3, 000 men, women and children rescued in the Mediterranean. Dozens of others found dead on boats or other vehicles. This happened over two days this week. Hundreds of thousands of people are fleeing their homeland, hoping for asylum, a safe and secure place to live In Europe. They’re leaving behind violence in Afghanistan, instability in Libya, a years long civil war in Syria. And some of the European countries where they’re headed are feeling a strain on their borders. Hungary, for instance, says, the flow of migrants is creating an emergency. Its government says 1, 500 people are illegally entering the country daily. It calls that unacceptable. Hungary is sending as many as two thousand police officers to help secure it’s borders. It’s also building a temporary barrier. A type of fence along it’s border with Serbia. Walls have been built throughout history to protect countries or to keep certain groups of people apart. The Great Wall of China may be the most famous example. There’s also Hadrian’s Wall, intended to shield Roman Britain from what the Roman’s called Barbarians. Peace Walls in Northern Ireland still separate Catholic areas from Protestant ones. Spanish territory in Morocco is fenced in, a United Nations Buffer Zone stretches across the island of Cypress. The number of walls separating different parts of the world seems to be increasing. Katrina formed on Wednesday August 24th, 2005. Here’s the storm as it moves on up. It was just a tropical storm, at first, off the coast of Florida. But the next day it strengthened to a category one hurricane. Yesterday I signed a disaster declaration for the state of Louisiana. And this morning I signed a disaster declaration for the state of Mississippi. By Saturday, Katrina had doubled in size and was now a category three storm. A major hurricane. And on Sunday morning, August 28. Katrina had strengthened to a Category four when New Orleans right in it’s path. Every person is hereby ordered to immediately evacuate the city of New Orleans. That same day the National Weather Service issued one of it’s strongest warnings ever. Persons, pets, and livestock exposed to the winds will face certain death if struck. Roads jammed as thousands try to make it out of the city, but the storm veered and New Orleans was spared a direct hit. Everything seemed okay until later that night when water started toppling over the levees. When is this thing suppose to stop? By 7 a. m in the next morning, the city is flooding. But New Orleans isn’t alone. Biloxi and Gulfport, Mississippi are slammed by Katrina’s front right quadrant. Who was at your house with you? My wife. Where is she now? Can’t find her body. She’s gone. Tuesday, August 30th, Katrina has weakened into a heavy storm over Tennessee. But New Orleans continues to flood from breaks in it’s levees. Hundreds of thousands are suddenly homeless. And it would be weeks before the waters finally went down. More than 10, 000 people sought shelter in the heavily damaged New Orleans Superdome after Hurricane Katrina. Tomorrow marks 10 years to the day that the storm roared ashore. It was blamed for the deaths of more than 1800 people across 5 states. Katrina wasn’t the deadliest hurricane to hit U. S. shores but the government says it was the costliest. Estimating the damage at 108 billion dollars. Waveland, Mississippi about 50 miles east of New Orleans was called Ground Zero for Katrina. More than 90 % of homes there were destroyed. The main street, Coleman Avenue, was described as just dirt, mud, and tents after the storm. But ten years later, like parts of New Orleans, there are signs of recovery. Vikings and pirates and warriors, oh my. It’s time for the roll call. Olathe Middle and High School is up first. It’s in Olathe, Colorado. The Vikings and the Pirates are watching there. W. P. Davidson High School is Mobile, Alabama. That’s where the Warriors are watching CNN Student News today. And in the city of Sapporo, Japan, it’s great to be part of your day at the School for Educational Alternatives. Thank you all for your requests at cnnstudentnews. com. If I were to say tallest mountain in the world, you’d probably think Everest. At 29, 029 feet high it’s altitude is tops, but from base to summit the tallest mountain is actually Mauna Kea. It stands about 13, 800 feet above sea level but most of it is under water. The total height of this Hawaiian is over 33 thousand feet. And though it’s a dormant volcano, controversy has erupted there for decades. Mauna Kea, which means white mountain, is one of the tallest summits in the world. It’s also home to 13 of the best astronomical telescopes in science. Astronomers believe this is the perfect location to study the stars. This summit is the darkest spot on Earth. The darkest spot on Earth. Incredible, it gives us nice dark skies that allows us to look at fainter and fainter things. Now, scientists plant to build a new 30 meter telescope on the summit. The TMT, as it’s often called, would be the most powerful and advanced telescope on the planet. Researchers say the 18 story telescope would let them see up to 13 billion light years away. The TMT represents a jump of a factor of 10. That we would be able to look 10 times further into our universe. But to native Hawaiians. This is the most sacred mountain on the island. For Grandpas and Grandmas. It’s where their earliest ancestors originated and they consider it a temple. They do not want any more construction here, and have taken legal action to stop it. A group of opponents, who also call themselves protectors, sued the state of Hawaii for granting the TMT company, a permit they say, is inconsistent with the states conservation laws. You have to remember that Mauna Kea and it’s entirety is a conservation district and conservation districts are one of the highest protected levels and their, it’s supposed to be no construction. The debate between Astronomers and Native Hawaiians dates back to the 1960s when the University of Hawaii first started plans to turn Mauna Kea into a leading sight for astronomy. We as Hawaiians, astronomy is so much apart of our life, of who we are of what we were, that in fact it’s kind of crazy not to to welcome it. Because of the historic controversy, it took several years for the $ 1. 4 billion TMT Project to get approved by the state of Hawaii. In April, they finally started construction. But that all came to a halt just a few days later when hundreds of protesters showed up and shut down the project. More than 30 protestors were arrested that day on charges of obstruction. There have been several more arrests on the summit, because each time TMT workers try to build, protestors step in. We have reached our limit, and science has to accept that there are human limits also. The Hawaii Supreme Court has decided to take on the protector’s lawsuit. There the final decision will be made on whether the permit to build this telescope is valid or not. In the meantime, the TMT Company has the legal right to continue construction at any point, but the protectors say they’re ready to stop them. Before we go, our mother’s told us not to play with our food. At the annual La Tomatino Festival in Spain, that’s the whole point y’all. No one really knows how this tomatoey tradition got started, but it’s been going strong since about 1945. Today, it involves 20, 000 people, about 100 tons of overripe tomatoes, the fruit fight lasts 1 hour, and firetrucks spray down the streets afterward to clean up. The people, though, are on their own, and they’ll need a shower from head to- may- toes. It looks like they had fun, but they all see red. They all bring excitement to the vegetable, and we’re betting none of them go home hungry. Hey. If you’re already on Instagram, find us on CNN Student News. Just look for the blue check mark.
