we spoke -- media spoke with one -- a woman who lives in the area who describes some of the situation. >> Animals, the livestock, buried. Everything was buried. They're appealing to our government, the NGOs, for food and shelter, temporarily. And then they also making -- they're trying to retrieve the bodies they are digging up. >> Reporter: one factor that is complicating the rescue efforts is that tribal warfare in the area. One aid convoy was reportedly delayed by one group. There is also an incident apparently unrelated to this, but caused some issues. 30 homes burned. Eight deaths because of a clash between rival clans. Emergency responders have been working to remove survivors to evacuation centres they set up on either side of that debris field. They've also been -- the government also has been considering whether to ask for international aid to assist with their efforts here. The U.S. and australia have already said they are willing to offer their support. I have reached out to global affairs canada to see where canada might stand on this, also to see how many canadians might be in papua new guinea. In terms of the number of missing, they are expecting -- they are expecting to update those figures as time goes along. So that number of dead could change in the hours and days ahead. >> Marianne: looking at the images, seeing the local residents scrambling to get the help to the victims. Thanks for the update, albert. >>> The findings are out in examination of the delay in an emergency alert in the deadly floods in nova scotia. We'll hear what went wrong ahead here on cbc news network. [ ] [dynamic]Andrew:Where we're all aboutexplaining and expanding. Financial goals. At Fidelity, we know that everyone's got them.

Amusement park in western india has killed at least 27 people. Officials say some of the bodies have been burned beyond recognition. And that the fire has claimed the lives of "many children". The search continues for at least one missing person. Police have promised a swift response to the incident and have taken two people into custody for questioning.

>>> Another fire in india has claimed the lives of at least six newborn babies after a blaze broke out at a baby care hospital. The fire department did manage to rescue six children from the flames. They have been taken to another hospital, including one newborn on a ventilator. The owner of the baby hospital has fled, but legal action is being taken against the unidentified person. >>> A recent outline reports the failures that occurred during the flash flood in nova scotia year. The alerts that were meant to warn people exacerbated the situation. Kayla hounsell has more on the tragedy. >> Reporter: six-year-old colton was fast asleep when floodwaters began to fill his home. His dad tried to get him out of the area. >> The water had a strong current. I didn't know where it went. >> Reporter: colton was one of four people who died after being swept away in two separate vehicles last july. Now a new report says an emergency alert telling people to shelter in place was delayed. >> We had emergency alert put out for west hants. But it comes again and again. At 2:28. Colton's mom gets wind of the attempts and calls to wake his dad. And finally, nearly two hours after it was first requested, the alert is issued. >> By the time the alert was issued, colton was dead. >> What do you think went wrong? >> I don't think anything went wrong per se. It was an unprecedented storm. >> Reporter: the report says part of the problem was poor cell service. There was also no access to flood mapping. Though this after-action report has just been released, the intact centre on climate adaptation at the university of waterloo released a report in 2020 prior to the nova scotia floods raising similar concerns. >>, quite frankly, the more lethal outcome associated with the event could have been avoided. Tt >> Reporter: the municipality has created templates to alert faster and increase the number of people who can authorize them. >> I'm so disappointed. >> The ciscos want someone with an ability to do the alert on call 24-7. >> I don't think I could just stop knowing that a whole generation is going to have to face this. >> Reporter: she says her family's tragedy should remind her that the time for action on climate change is now. >> Marianne: violent storms and tornadoes are sweeping through the central united states and disrupting the memorial day weekend for millions of people. The extreme weather has damaged homes, overturned vehicles and knocked down trees and pour lines. It's unclear how many people have been injured, but hail, winds and possible tornadoes are also in the forecast for the region today.

TIPPED IN FRONT. >> Marianne: THE STARS WERE ABLE TO PULL AHEAD IN THE THIRD PERIOD AS MARCHMENT GOT IT PAST THE GOALIE. GAME 3 TAKES PLACE IN EDMONTON TOMORROW NIGHT.

>>> It was a disappointing outing for soccer fans in vancouver. Not only did the whitecaps lose 2-1 to intermiex, but the record-breaking crowd missed out on seeing lionel messi, the 8-time winner didn't travel with the team. Canadian fans hope to see membershipslionel messi in action in atlanticta. I keep talking about the rain and umbrellas, but there is sun? >> You got it. We're dealing with fog across southern ontario. Fog advisories still in place. But we will have to nice sunny day as we go into the afternoon. Beautiful conditions near chapleau, sudbury, you can see windsor with the thunderstorm icon. That's hinting at the next system. That thunderstorm risk will rise tonight and then especially tomorrow for ontario. As we focus on québec, beautiful day today as well. Any tourists in montreal, 25° with the sunshine. You picked a perfect day to go. Québec city at 21. Really comfortable conditions here. Now here's the thunderstorm risk I was talking about. This comes back into play sort of after dinner-time tonight. And then we'll see that thunderstorm risk grow as we go into monday. That's because the colorado low will be moving in across ontario and into québec. So along that 401 corridor out toward ottawa, this is where we have ripe conditions into monday afternoon to see large hail, damaging winds, some big thunderstorms. So monday will be a rainy day. You can bank on using the umbrella. Sort of getting in and out of the house quickly. Some downpours are quite possible and heavy rain within the north of ontario, too, toward chapleau and timmins. We're also tracking the west. This trough from fort nelson, b.c., all the way to regina and assiniboia, you'll be looking at showers.

We fight the best we can. Man: We build our own legacy. Arena announcer: She scores! [ ] >> Marianne: hello. I'm marianne dimain. You're watching cbc news network. We start in papua new guinea this hour. The number of deaths is growing significantly following a major landslide on friday. Albert delitala joins us now in studio with more on the disaster. You're tracking the numbers. I know you reached out to global affairs canada which we'll get to. Things are changing. >> Reporter: this could be the largest landslide in the history of papua new guinea and that is because of more than 670 people who are feared could be dead in this. The international organization for migration which is a U.N. agency there says the numbers, they're estimating 150 homes, more than that number, were buried by this massive landslide. You can see on the map where this happened. It's nearly 4,000 people live in the remote individual of yambali which is 6,000 kilometres northwest of the capital of port moresby. It buried dozens of homes. The earth and rubble is estimated to be 6 to 8 metres deep. You can see it there. Just a massive landslide compared to other ones they've experienced in that area. And it's also estimated to be between 3-4 soccer fields in size and actually blocked a local highway. Emergency responders have been working to move people to more stable ground, safer ground. And they also have set up evacuation centres on that stable ground and they're trying to bring people to those centres. >> Marianne: in looking at the images, you can see the challenge that rescueers have ahead of them, not just because of the remote area. >> A lot of unstable debris, unstable ground is complicating the efforts. And in addition to that, they've experienced a lot of rain in recent months which is fear of smaller landslides that could happen. On top of that, tribal clashes. They've been common lately in the province. Including one group that blocked an aid convoy that was actually delayed until the military was able to let it through. Here's one journalist who spoke to media. She writes for a newspaper in the country's capital. >> Papua new guinea rescue teams are on its way to the province. The location is hard to access. You can only have helicopters or choppers access the place. >> Reporter: the country's government is reportedly considering whether to request more international help in regards to the situation. The U.S. and australia have said they will assist here. I have reached out to global affairs canada about what aid they will send. Tt a large number of people are feared to have died, but it is feared that number of deaths could rise significantly. >> Marianne: you're going to keep on eye on that. Albert, thank you so much. That's the cbc's albert delitala this morning. >> Marianne: turning now to the war in gaza and a fresh push to get humanitarian aid into the south of the territory from egypt. A convoy of trucks is bringing in supply for the first time since israel stormed rafah this month. Irris makler tells us about the efforts and what went into making the deliveries a reality. >> Reporter: 200 trucks have been going in. They include food trucks and fuel trucks. And we have that from the head of the red crescent. I've seen footage from the egyptian television. The significance of this is these trucks were not getting in through the rafah border crossing. Egypt and israel blaming each other for that, but either way it took an intervention by the U.S. president joe biden. They called the egyptian president and they agreed that some of the trucks could be rerouted to the israeli border crossing and go in that way. That's great news because fresh food on the trucks was rotting.

nothing was getting through. Hundreds of trucks were just standing there. Now we see trucks. But there is a criticism for the U.S. agency on the ground about distribution. We heard from the head of unrwa and he said it's all well that it gets in, but how do we get it to the people who left rafah, the palestinians who fled rafah to avoid the fighting? They're on an area on the coast, sandy area, just tents. How do we get food safely to them for them and us? Any kind of delivery is hard in the war-time. Nevertheless, despite all that, we have to say this is an achievement today for washington and for the palestinian civilians in gaza. >> Marianne: the top court is seeking arrest warrant against benjamin netanyahu at the same time mike johnson is inviting him to speak to congress? >> That's right. What we're seeing is invitation issued friday by the republican U.S. leader in the congress. He has very good relations the number two -- I guess you call him benjamin netanyahu confidante, that is arranged. No date given. That's going to be given this week. And the american media is saying I it has to be before the august recess, so not much time. And there has been criticism inside israel of the timing, saying benjamin netanyahu should be in the country, gallivanting around the world for his own purposes, not enough for israel and other criticisms that he hasn't met the survivors of the october 7 attacks and is going overseas to meet international leaders. This is going to fraught with drama. >> Marianne: hundreds of people have attended the funeral of an israeli hostage whose body was recovered on friday. Michel nisenbaum was killed by hamas on the october 7th attacks and his body was then taken to gaza. He was retrieved with two others. Pressure is mounting on the government of benjamin netanyahu to get the last remaining hostages home. Protests have become commonplace across israel. Demonstrators are calling for new hostage release and fresh elections.

>>> A clock is ticking on the pro-palestinian encampment at the university of toronto. They have 24 hours to leave or potentially face legal action. They are scheduled to meet with administrators later today. >> U of t knows how to bargain. They bargain with unions all the time. We are currently preparing our counter-offer and hopefully we're able to discuss that at the 5:00 P.M. meeting. >> Reporter: the protesters say they won't budge until they get commitment that u of t will end investments with israel. >>> Now to russia's war in ukraine. Ukrainian president volodymyr zelenskyy is calling on the U.S. and china to join an upcoming peace summit in switzerland. Dominic valitis has the details. >> Reporter: well, marianne, this is highly produced prerecorded video message featuring zelenskyy which was filmed inside the burnt-out remains of a ukrainian printing press. It's a direct appeal, in english, to U.S. president joe biden and china xi jinping to attend next month's up coming peace summit in switzerland, which neither country has agreed yet to attend. But here he is. Take a listen. >> I am appealing to the leaders of the world who are still of the global effort. To president biden, the leader of the united states, and to president xi, the leader of china, we do not want the U.N. charter to be burnt. Burnt down just like these books. And I hope you don't want to either. Please show your leadership in advancing the peace, real peace, not just the force of the strikes. >> Reporter: now the wider context here, the background, of course, is the situation on the ground over the last couple of weeks or so russian forces have been making significant advances on the battlefield, especially of their new offensive north and northeast of kharkiv. In this video address as zelenskyy also claims that russia is now forming another grouping of troops near ukraine's northern border. Presumably preparing for a further offensive action there. Another sign zelenskyy says that putin doesn't want peace. Now russia, of course, hasn't been invited to next month's summit in switzerland and although dozens of other countries, including india will be there, there is still no word if the U.S. or china will attend. Ukraine especially wants china to be there because beijing has a certain amount of influence on moscow. It's also worth mentioning that the address comes just a couple of days after russian sources told the reuters news agency that putin was ready to stop the war in ukraine with a negotiated cease-fire that recognizes the current battlefield lines. But as mentioned earlier, they say that the russian actions on the ground proves he doesn't want police and any cease-fire he is reportedly offering is nothing more than an opportunity for moscow, for russia, to prepare for future offensive operations. Marianne. >> Marianne: in the meantime, what can you tell us about the air strike on kharkiv? >> Reporter: yeah, this is a terrible strike yesterday on a crowded hardware store in kharkiv. The city's mayor says around 120 people were shopping inside when two russian-guided bombs slammed into the building. And this morning ukrainian prosecutors gave an update on casualty figures. They're saying at least 12 people were killed in the strike while 14 others wounded. 16 people are still missing. Ukraine's president volodymyr zelenskyy condemned the attack overnight as another demonstration of russian madness, that someone only as crazy as putin would be able of committing such an act. >> Marianne: cbc's dominic valitis in london.
