  • Seventy-five million people. That`s how many in the eastern U.S. had some risk of severe weather yesterday.

  • That`s what first up this Wednesday on CNN STUDENT NEWS.

  • Parts of Mississippi, Alabama and Tennessee were raked by suspected tornadoes.

  • The storms killed at least 17 people in those three states, in addition to those who died in the central U.S. earlier this week.

  • In Louisville, a logging town in east Mississippi, the damage from twisters was severe.

  • Same thing in Tupelo, in the northeastern part of the state.

  • A newspaper reporter there said that some buildings were just wiped away.

  • A woman whose home was destroyed said that it hurts to look and not be able to come home,

  • but that she was grateful that her dog survived and wasn`t hurt.

  • Forecasters are getting better at predicting these storms,

  • sometimes as much as a day in advance.

  • Communications are also improving.

  • Radio warnings, news casts, social media posts are all helping save lives.

  • But not everyone has a safe place to go to.

  • Like an underground basement or a hardened safe room. So challenges remain.

  • From my experience, it`s the worst that I`ve experienced, but again, we just have to make it happen, and that`s the IOC`s approach.

  • We haven`t had to, as an IOC, send people - like this before.

  • We`ve been struggling to get them to understand the problem.

  • Test events are starting this year, and yet in the test event department, these two people working.

  • OK. That was the vice president of the International Olympic Committee, the IOC.

  • He is saying that Rio de Janeiro, Brazil is way behind in preparing for the 2016 Olympic Summer Games.

  • Any city planning to host the Olympics is subject to scrutiny.

  • Will construction be done on time, will the area be safe?

  • We heard concerns about Sochi, London, Beijing and now Rio.

  • But the IOC say says it`s having to take a more hands-on approach this time around.

  • There have been delays, communications problems, skyrocketing costs and Rio is hosting the World Cup Tournament this summer.

  • So it`s been preparing for that, too.

  • The city`s mayor says there`s no reason for concern about the Olympics, and Rio organizers say Brazil is spending almost $11 billion to make sure everything comes together.

  • This will be the first Olympics ever held in South America.

  • As Rio scrambles to prepare and reassure future tourists that it`s worth the trip,

  • a Mexican city is working to lure tourists back.

  • We are taking you to Puerto Vallarta, a resort in Mexico`s Pacific Coast, a heaven for fishing, golf and sunbathing.

  • It`s been hit by a recession, sickness and concerns about the Mexican drug war,

  • but it says that violence is hundreds of miles away.

  • Where they are parasailing Pacific Ocean or taking a tour on a historic ship on a beautiful afternoon,

  • or dancing through the night at a trendy dance club,

  • Puerto Vallarta, Mexico seems to always be in the party mood.

  • We are not just another beach town.

  • Carlos Gerard-Guzman is a tourism director in Puerto Vallarta,

  • a beach resort on the Mexican Pacific Coast.

  • His job is to revitalize an industry that was all but dead five year ago.

  • Drug violence throughout Mexico had driven away many tourists,

  • and then, in 2009, an influenza scare made a bad situation even worse.

  • We were basically paralyzed like almost three months with no guests.

  • No cruise ships in three months, and then (INAUDIBLE) with no flights. People were afraid to fly.

  • Many hotels laid off employees and kept a skeleton stuff,

  • some businesses closed down and many wondered whether tourists would ever come back.

  • Recovery has been slow, but promising, thanks to significant investments in promotion in Mexico and abroad.

  • New or renovated infrastructure, like this $2.4 million piers is also part of the plan.

  • This multimillion dollar project is one of several that had been completed here in Puerto Vallarta in the last couple of years.

  • Tourism officials say their goal is to attract new tourists and to send a message to those who have been here in the past that it`s time to return.

  • . In 2012, 3.7 million people visited Puerto Vallarta, a figure that increased by 5 percent last year.

  • Almost 40 percent are foreigners, mainly American and Canadian.

  • Drug violence has not really stopped in Mexico, but officials say, it happens far away from tourists` destinations like Puerto Vallarta.

  • Next today, there is no one cure for cancer.

  • There are treatments, like surgery, chemotherapy and radiation, and while they can help people live longer, or even push cancer into remission,

  • they often come with side effects, and questions about quality of life are raised.

  • If there`s one person who can discuss that quality, it`s Stephen Sutton, a cancer patient in Britain.

  • That old saying go, when life gives you lemons, make lemonade.

  • But what you do when life gives you cancer.

  • Steven Sutton was diagnosed with cancer in December 2010.

  • He was just 15 years old. He created a bucket list on Facebook, of 46 things he wanted to do before he ran out of time.

  • Some things on my bucket list include: skydiving,

  • crowd surfing in a rubber dinghy,

  • playing drums in front of a huge crowd. I ended up doing it live at Wembley (ph).

  • But as he checked off each item, something else happened.

  • Since starting the bucket list, I`ve had people come up to me and offer to raise funds for me.

  • For me personally to go on holiday or to take off a new item on my bucket list.

  • But I`ve actually refused and decided to give the money to charity instead.

  • He set a goal to raise 10,000 pounds, while he`s now raised more than 3 million.

  • That`s about $5 million, and it`s continuing to grow with celebrities chipping in with their support every day.

  • Since starting the bucket list, my life has changed completely.

  • . I`m now doing so many weird and wonderful things.

  • And so much more.

  • The amount of opportunity is (INAUIDBLE) my way, it`s absolutely meant.

  • And the one thing I`ve really enjoyed is the fund raising and help others.

  • So, that`s the main thing I want to concentrate on.

  • The money goes to teenage cancer trust.

  • The charity that has helped them to each surgery, each round of radiation and chemotherapy.

  • We aren`t a large charity, we raise about 12 million pounds a year.

  • And in less than a week, Stephen has raised a quarter of our budget.

  • But no amount of money can reverse the cancer in Stephen`s body.

  • He`s exhausted his medical options and is now living as comfortably as he can under hospice care.

  • On the 22 of April, Stephen posted this message,

  • It`s a final thumbs up for me. I`ve done well to blag things as well as I have up until now, but unfortunately, I think this is just one hurdle too far.

  • But Stephen held on.

  • For how long - he doesn`t know, but he has promised to continue posting for as long as he can.

  • I don`t really want to die, but if my story teaches others not to take life for granted, then so be it.

  • In the meantime, I`ll be try and enjoy every second as much as possible.

  • Cancer sucks, but life is great.

  • Atika Shubert, CNN, London.

  • On our Roll Call today, we are visiting Saudi Arabia, Netherlands and Puerto Rico.

  • Sounds like worldwide Wednesday.

  • We`ll start in the Middle East where we are online at Jubail International School.

  • They are on a roll in Jubail, Saudi Arabia.

  • Next, to Europe, thank you for watching at Dristar (ph) college, it`s in Gouda, a city in Netherlands.

  • And we`ll wrap up today`s roll in Puerto Rico.

  • Good to see our viewers in Port Buchanan.

  • They are watching in Timley`s (ph) Middle School.

  • Clip springer. Kind of sounds like something that keep a bag of chips fresh.

  • Dwarf antelope, sounds more like this.

  • But whether you call her Clip Springer or antelope, you got to call her cute.

  • She`s the latest addition to Chicago`s Lincoln Park Zoo.

  • Her mom wasn`t taking very good care of her, so zoo keeper stepped in to bottle feed the little girl,

  • so you can`t bottle this much sweetness.

  • She weighs four pounds and will tap out at about 24 pounds as an adult.

  • Of course, as a baby she can`t lope yet, but there`s a clip spring in her step, and she`s got plenty room in it to grow.

  • So, best to leather, just roam around while we hoof it and planning to bounce back your way tomorrow.

  • I`m Carl Azuz for CNN STUDENT NEWS.

Seventy-five million people. That`s how many in the eastern U.S. had some risk of severe weather yesterday.
