CARL AZUZ, CNN 10 ANCHOR: With three shows
left including today`s left in the season,

we`re happy you`re taking 10 minutes for CNN

I`m Carl Azuz
at the CNN Center.
In the United States, the country with the
most violent weather in the world there`ve

been more than 500 reports of tornadoes in
the last 30 days.
That`s only happened four times before.
The National Weather Service received more
than 50 tornado reports on Monday and Tuesday

While several states west of the Rocky Mountains
recently saw colder than average conditions,

much of America east of the Rockies has
seen severe storms, flooding and a scorching
heat wave.

There`s been a lot of damage in the Midwest.
Parts of Ohio are cleaning up after damaging
storms and tornadoes swept through early this

have been destroyed.
Schools have been damaged.
More than 70,000 people in Ohio had no electricity
as of yesterday morning and more heavy storms

with the possibility of tornadoes and large
hail were in the forecast.

Soaking rain was expected in Iowa, Missouri
and Illinois.

South of those
states, parts of Arkansas and Oklahoma have
been struggling for days with flooding.

The city government of North Little Rock,
Arkansas says the

rising Arkansas River is one problem.
The fact that the city`s storm water drains
to that river and could become blocked from

doing that is another.
One state west, severe weather in
Oklahoma has been blamed for the deaths of
nine people since late April and the governor

says things could still get worse there.
For the time being,
the threat of dangerous storms isn`t expected
to let up in many parts of America but there

are some things you can do to protect yourself
if your

area is under the threat of a tornado.
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Severe weather is one
the way.

So what do you do when the warning gets issued?
If you`re at home, get to your basement,
cellar or safe room if you have it.
If you don`t, get to the lowest level of your

From there find an interior room with no windows
such as a

bathroom, a closet or a long interior hallway.
Corners tend to attract debris so try to huddle
in the center of the room.

Now that you`re in the
safest part of your house, focus on your body.
Grab a blanket, a helmet or even a pillow
to place over your head and neck just in case

debris comes
crashing down on you.
If that`s not an option, get under a sturdy
piece of furniture like a heavy desk or a

Remember the key is to stay low to the ground
and you get

as far away from windows as possible.
You also don`t want to be caught off guard.
If you see that severe weather is forecast
for your area, prepare

ahead of time.
Start by getting together a go bag.
This could be a duffle bag, backpack, any
large bag will work.

Put things inside like
flashlights, medications, bottles of water
and a sturdy pair of shoes just in case you

end up having to walk over glass or debris.
Also, put
important paperwork inside of a Ziploc bag
so it stays dry.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: There is a significant
risk of tornadoes.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: The day severe weather
is forecast, try to keep all your devices

charged just in case you end up losing power.
If you live in
a mobile home, get out.
You are safer in your vehicle than you are
in a mobile home.

Make plans ahead of time to stay with a family
member or

friend that lives in a non-mobile home.
If that`s not an option, you can head to a
library or a police or fire station.

AZUZ: In returning to Mr. Everest today for
more information about an unusually deadly

climbing season that has killed at least 11
people so far.

The deaths aren`t all because of a single
event like an avalanche.

Overcrowding, inexperience, bad weather and
bad decision making have all

been named as reasons why so many have died.
It`s true that the nation of Nepal issued
a record number of climbing permits this year

but its
government says it was only nine more permits
than it gave out in 2017.

Still, each foreign climber is required to
have a Sherpa guide and bad weather left them

with only a five day window when they could
try to reach

the top so that worsened the traffic jam.
Everest summit is 29,029 feet high.
Most people can only stay minutes at that
altitude without extra

oxygen supplies.
That`s why the area near it is called the
death zone.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: We have just arrived
to Everest base camp and I have to say, even

at this altitude, even without being anywhere
near to the

summit you really feel the impact of the decreased
oxygen levels.

The scenery here is absolutely spectacular.
You really understand what the
draw (inaudible) is.
That`s the ice fall that is so famous.
It`s what the climbers first have to go through
to get to camp one and then of course as

they move on up to the different camps and
the different stops trying to reach what is

the one main goal that unites everybody here.
And normally, this entire area at the peak
of the season is covered in tents.

What you have right now behind me is just
a few tents that have

been left.
There`re clean up crews.
There`s still a handful of climbers that are
down there, some of the last ones to come

down from the summit on
what has been an especially devastating hiking
season for the summit of Everest because of

the level of fatalities.
And because of the issues that
arose from all of this backlog that - - that
took place, the photographs of the long lines

of people waiting inside the death zone called
that because

the levels of oxygen there are so low.
Every breath you take in the death zone only
gives you a third of the oxygen that you would

get at sea level so you have to be climbing

oxygen tanks.
And so these long waiting hours they have
(audio gap) to the deaths that we did see

at least to most of them.
A lot of these climbers
aren`t dying on the way up.
You (audio gap) to that goal.
You could make it to the summit.
It`s when you come back down.
That`s when people`s
bodies tend to succumb to altitude sickness.
A lot of debate right now as to whether or
not Nepal needs to be doing more to regulate

the number of
permits, to regulate who goes up, what level
of experience they have.

There`s been a lot of criticism about inexperienced
climbers going up but there`s also a burden

of responsibility on the individual.
Yes this is
such a challenge.
It is such a goal that is really going to
push you mentally and physically to the limit

but all of the climbers we`re talking
to are saying you really need to know how
to listen to your body.

And just being here right now, one really
feels the effects of the lower levels of

AZUZ: 10 Second Trivia.
Which of these international organizations
was founded the most recently?

International Committee of the Red Cross,
International Telecommunication Union, INTERPOL,
or League of Nations.

INTERPOL, an international police agency,
is the youngest organization on

this list.
It was founded in 1923.
AZUZ: If a self driving car brings a package
to your driveway, it`s apparently too hard

for some people to go out to the driveway
to get it.

So the Ford Motor Company is testing this.
The robot is called Digit.
After packages are driven the last mile, Digit
carries them the last 10

feet and they say it can get around objects
though it may have to step on the grass to

do it.
Get off my lawn.
How many human jobs will Digit
Does it work in the rain?
What happens if a dog attacks it?
What if Digit falls and can`t get up?
Questions are all "relevant".
Can Digit weather "elements"?
Maybe he`s someone`s vision but did they
envision that he`d have to make decisions
with precision if he`s artificially intelligent.

He`s just a machine after all.
He can`t get up
after a fall.
He has a mission and ambition but if under
bad conditions, Digit undergoes a "fission".

It may take a good technician or maybe a good
(Inaudible) if he ends "up ended" by a downfall.
