CARL AZUZ: Happy day
after St. Patrick's Day.

Thank you for starting off
a new week with CNN 10.

I'm Carl Azuz at the CNN Center.
Investigators in the South
Pacific Island nation

of New Zealand say they're
working to find out

if an Australian
citizen, who occasionally

lived in New Zealand,
was there to carry

out a terrorist attack.
On Friday, the suspect sent
an 87-page email to the prime

minister's office and dozens
of other addresses minutes

before the attack began--
too soon for police
to respond, according

to the prime minister.
Afterward, police say the
suspect carried out shootings

at two mosques in the
city of Christchurch,

leaving 50 people dead
and 50 others wounded.

The attacks were
made as Muslims were

gathered for Friday prayers.
Investigators have not discussed
what the alleged shooter's

motives were, but his email
spoke out against Muslims

and described
immigrants as invaders.

Though police initially arrested
several people afterward,

only one suspect was charged in
connection with the shootings.

Police reportedly
captured him by ramming

the car he was
driving 36 minutes

after the attacks began.
New Zealand Prime
Minister Jacinta Arden

says there were more
firearms in his car

and that he would have
continued the attack

if he hadn't been caught.
Police said, after the arrest,
that their focus would shift

toward helping the families and
the victims of the shootings,

making sure those affected
would get the support

and help they need.
As makeshift memorials
appeared around the mosques,

promises of support,
prayers, and donations

were being made by
leaders, citizens,

and religious organizations
from all over the world.

From the South Pacific, we're
taking you to South America.

Last week, we reported on
a rare widespread blackout

in Venezuela that
added to the country's

economic and political problems.
Electricity went out in 19
of Venezuela's 23 states.

And while the government's
information minister says

the outage has been
completely restored,

CNN teams on the
ground there say

this is true for a lot
of the capital, Caracas,

but the lights
aren't on everywhere.

Another issue all this
created was a water shortage.

70% of Caracas now
has drinking water,

and 80% of the rest
of the country--

again, according to its
information minister.

But while the Venezuelan
government accuses the United

States and Venezuela's
opposition leader

for trying to bring down
the electrical grid,

the priority for many
residents is getting

their taps to run clean.
PAULA NEWTON: At its worst,
the blackout triggered

a water crisis so severe,
there was a degrading scramble

for water--
any water, even dirty water,
whatever the drainage pipes

in the stream could offer up.
The water shortage has eased
up a bit, but not the indignity

of finding water wherever
and however you can,

even coming from
inside a highway

tunnel and an open pipe.
I mean, look at this water.
It is not clean.
There is debris in the water.
There is garbage.
There are insects.
And yet people are
very desperate,

and they're happy to have this
water right now, telling me

that they are using it for
bathing and for anything else

that they need to be doing.
They know they can't
drink it, but right now

this is all they have.
PAULA NEWTON: It's tough,
it's very tough, he tells me,

we need water for everything.
If we don't have water,
we can't do anything.

Black goop, instead of water,
ran through these faucets

when the power did come back on.
Residents posted on social
media of a water system

rarely maintained or repaired.
Ana Ramirez says she's
afraid that now the water

system will never recover.
She's done without
in her tiny apartment

in the barrio of Petare
since the blackouts

started last week.
And Venezuela is still
running out of water.

Unthinkable in a country
once blessed with vast water

resources, years of
neglect and now drought

have left many struggling
and scavenging to get water,

as it too has now
become a luxury.

Paula Newton, CNN, Caracas.
CARL AZUZ: The governor of
the US state of Nebraska

says nearly every
region of his state

is dealing with
historic flooding.

This is all part of the
bombogenesis or bomb cyclone

that blew east off the
Colorado Rockies last week.

It blasted that state's
capital and many other parts

of the central US with
blizzard conditions and nearly

hurricane force winds.
Heavy rains and flooding
were all part of it.

And that continues to be
a problem in Nebraska,

as piles and drifts
of snow melt swell

rivers and flood communities.
Nebraska's Emergency
Management Agency

says records have been broken
in at least 17 locations

and that more of
that is expected.

The water has
never been measured

this high along the Missouri,
Platte, and Elkhorn rivers.

53 counties, 54 cities, and
two Native American tribes

have declared emergencies.
Most of the areas affected
by the bomb cyclone

are expected to have
calmer weather this week.

But as the snow
continues to melt

and the rainwater runs down
hills in the creeks and rivers,

the flooding threat isn't over.
destroyed, highways washed out,

cars and cattle stranded--
this is the aftermath
of a bomb cyclone.

The powerful weather
system slammed the Midwest

with hurricane-like winds
and blizzard conditions

last week, leaving drowning
rains and flooding in its wake.

And after heavy snowfall
this winter, natural snowmelt

is making bad conditions worse.
In Wisconsin,
Darlington officials

say the city hasn't
seen this much flooding

in more than 25 years.
Fremont, Nebraska, home to
more than 26,000 people,

became an island when
roadways in and out of town

flooded Friday.
Nebraska's governor touring
the damage in his state.

This has probably been,

you know, the most severe
widespread flooding we've had,

as far as the parts of the
state that's been impacted,

we've had the last half century.
Nebraska rescue teams

have been pulling trapped
residents out of floodwaters

since Thursday, and
forecasters caution

more snowmelt is on the way.
So the worst flooding
may be yet to come.

CARL AZUZ: 10 second trivia--
Ms. Cheezious, Halal
Guys, and Salt & straw

are all restaurants
that started as what?

Shark Tank investments, chain
restaurant spinoffs, food

trucks or carts, or dog stands?
All of these
restaurants were once

run out of a cart or a truck--
a food truck.
Whether you're an aspiring
or already successful chef,

there are a number of
challenges associated

with opening a food truck--
ingredient costs, kitchen
costs, permit costs,

not to mention the cost
of losing customers

when the weather
doesn't cooperate.

It's all part of
it, but CNN recently

caught up with the Taco
Beast, a snowbound snowcat

that serves food.
Its chefs don't
mind if it's snowing

outside, though we're not sure
what they do in the summer.

fire up the Beast,

I kind of feel like I'm
piloting a spaceship.

You know, it's
still dark outside.

You press one button and
you light up the sky.

best office view in the world.

We look at the flat
tops every morning.

It's not a bad day.
DAN LUCHS: As much as I'd
love to be on my snowboard

at that point in time, I
still enjoy driving this--

the Beast.
We meet at the
bottom of the gondola

and head up on the first
one in the morning at 6:30.

We head here to where our
docking station with the Taco

- All right (LAUGHING)
- Hey, man, what's going on?
- Oh, it was epic.
Champagne fodder all around.
in Steamboat for 30 years.

I've opened up half the
restaurants in town.

I've been working outside
for the mountain for like 3.

I'm only in the kitchen
for a couple hours a day

for what I do.
It's mostly out there.
DAN LUCHS: Oh, it's some
funny questions like,

oh, do you leave
the kitchen here

and you drive the snowcat away?

there a pop-up camper?

We're selling out all the time.
So people are
definitely liking what

we're throwing down for sure.
CARL AZUZ: The saying
"bat in the belfry"

usually applies to someone
who;s said to be a little crazy.

What about having a
bat in the newsroom?

Is it going to drive
reporters batty?

It did for a while
at WCBI's newsroom

in Columbus, Mississippi,
when a flying mammal

somehow found its way inside.
A couple of fearless employees
eventually trapped the animal

in a conference
room, and they didn't

need to hold a
conference to decide

the bat was better off outside.
The staff of WCBI then waved
WC bye bye, not batting

an eye, when Batman flitted
back out into the Dark Knight.

Letting him hang
out inside would

have been a Chiropterable idea.
Even if you got to wing
it some times in news,

some of the most battle tested
reporters would want to fly

to a different echo location.
I'm Carl Azuz, batting
a 1,000 for CNN 10.
