CARL AZUZ: Fridays are awesome.
I'm Carl Azuz, your
host of CNN 10,

explaining events
taking place worldwide.

This May 3rd, we begin in the
South Asian country of India,

where a powerful cyclone
was expected to make

landfall on Friday morning.
The storm was named Fani.
It had gathered strength in the
Bay of Bengal the day before.

And as it headed toward
India's east coast,

its maximum sustained winds
blew it 155 miles per hour,

and that would mean
that tropical cyclone

Fani could be the most powerful
storm to hit India in 20 years.

The system that struck
eastern India in 1999

killed at least 10,000 people.
The nation's coast
guard and navy

prepared ships and helicopters
for rescue operations.

Military troops were
standing by as well.

Flights were canceled
in the region.

Schools were closed.
And around 900 shelters were
set up to house people who

had to evacuate their homes.
Unlike the Atlantic
hurricane season,

India's cyclone season
doesn't have a specific date

when it begins and ends.
There are two main periods
of activity, one in spring

and one in fall, right before
and right after the country's

southwest monsoon season.
What's expected
from cyclone Fani

is a large storm surge, a rise
in sea levels along the coast

where it makes landfall.
Significant wind damage
was also possible.

And farther inland, people were
preparing for the possibility

of flooding.
Directly in the
path of the storm

when we produced this show
was the Indian coastal city

of Puri.
- This is going to be a
time with 240 kilometer

per hour winds as the
storm rolls onshore.

We will see waves somewhere
in the ballpark of 15 meters.

We'll see storms surge
between seven and nine meters

as it comes onshore.
Everyone in this area
is in grave danger

to get out of the way.
They need to get away from this
water, away from this wind,

and into someplace that
is very, very strong.

Now eventually, it gets
over toward Kolkata

and then on up into Bangladesh.
But by that time, the forward
speed is moving quite fast.

And so the rainfall
will be more spread out.

This is now going to be
a devastating wind maker

and storm surge maker
right along the coast here

of the eastern shore of India.
A lot of people in the
way, 100 million people

will see something
from this storm,

whether it's wind damage,
whether it's surge damage,

or whether it's flooding.
This is going to be a widespread
storm significantly stronger

than we've seen in the past.
Last thing was a CAT 3.
That made landfall in 2014.
This is equivalent to a very
strong category 4 Atlantic

hurricane only one
or two miles per hour

really from a category 5.
CARL AZUZ: There've been
a lot of developments

in the South American
country of Venezuela.

When we put this show together,
its President, Nicolas Maduro,

remained in power, and its
opposition leader, Juan Guaido,

continued to lead
protests against Maduro.

In a new wave of demonstrations
this week, Guaido

called for the military
to get involved in pushing

President Maduro out of power.
But afterward,
Guaido admitted there

wasn't enough support from the
military to make that happen.

And on Thursday, men
and women in uniform

marched alongside the president
to show support for him.

President Maduro also
called for Venezuela's

elected officials to come
together this weekend

in a show of unity.
A Venezuelan human
rights organization

says four people have died in
this week's violent protests.

And tensions have spread
internationally as well.

Russia is one of the nations
that support President Maduro.

The US is among the countries
that support National

Assembly leader Guaido.
The Trump administration
said at one point this week,

Venezuela's president
was planning

to leave the country when
Russia told him to stay put.

President Maduro denied that.
Both the US and Russia have
told each other not to interfere

in the South American nation.
But the Trump administration
says US military action there

is possible if it's needed.
No one knows what
will happen next

in the politically unstable and
economically shattered country.

10 second trivia.
In what nation would you find
the world's largest known cave?

Vietnam, China, Malaysia,
or United States?

The biggest cave
ever discovered is

located in the Southeast
Asian country of Vietnam.

It was discovered by accident.
In 1990, a farmer stumbled
upon the cave while

looking for shelter in a storm.
Its entrance is so remote
that he forgot the way there.

And it wasn't until
18 years later

that he accidentally found
it again while hunting.

It takes two days of hiking
through the jungle just

to reach the cave.
And explorers recently made
a tremendous discovery there.

From the depths of the
earth, we're taking

you to the heights of the sky.
You're watching the liftoff of
the New Shepard rocket, a space

tourism vehicle that made a
test flight over rural Texas

It was carrying dozens
of research projects.

But no people were onboard.
Blue Origin, the American
company that makes the rocket,

hopes to be ferrying humans
to space and back in the year

There wouldn't be a pilot.
This rocket is fully automated.
Passengers would launch up, up,
and away inside the capsule.

It would detach from the rocket
about 62 miles over the earth.

People would get a few
minutes of weightlessness

while they were there.
And then the capsule
and the rocket

would return separately
to solid ground

where they could both be
reused on future trips.

We don't know yet how much
ticket prices will be.

Like SpaceX, Blue Origin has
received millions of dollars

from NASA.
It's one of several
private companies

hoping to bring people to space
When you think of
getting cows to mooove,

you might think of a
herdsman on horseback

or maybe a border
collie on call.

In the city of
California, it was

police who got the
pleasure of herding

a couple rogue cows recently.
And the fun was
caught on dash cam.

It was a slow assignment
right out of the gate.

But what bo-viner way to
wander into the weekend?

We could call it
udderly ridiculous,

say it was a milk run, tell
you we know where the beef is.

But before we hoof
it, we'll just

say we milked all
the puns we cud right

up until the cows came home.
I'm Carl Azuz for CNN.
