the food is here, we are fulfilling our promise. But not just today, we will continue to assist your community as much as we can going forward. But for today, we will do the first distribution. God bless! There are many more villages like this one. The record drought has left countless children and their families without enough food and at risk of extreme malnutrition. Join the friends of LIFE and be the answer to the cry of those in great need. RANDY: As you see these pictures, I want you to understand that what we're seeing now, especially in Ethiopia, we've seen before. The classic signs of malnutrition are thinning hair, sometimes turning red, and flaky skin. The very obvious physical signs so many times. Oftentimes, there are the pictures of the mothers who work so hard. Or the mothers walking miles and miles for water or for someplace that's got some food. But this is the smile of a child who is in the feeding program right now; a child who is healthy, who is learning, who is able to laugh and to play. And Tammy, I want to see so many smiles. There are so many that need it desperately. It works. We know we can do it when people will join us. TAMMY: Yes! It is possible. Hope is possible. When we come together, we can save the lives of so many children. And it starts today. Go online. Make a call. Give the best gift you possibly can give today.

This is "global news" morning. >> Good morning. Welcome along to the friday edition of "global news" morning. It is may 24th. Paul-brothers here with a look at your local news headlines to start off the morning. We're about a week away now from the start of hurricane season, and weather experts are predicting an exceptionally busy one this year. Now, while some parts of cape breton regional municipality are still recovering from hurricane fiona two years ago, the mayor says her community is working towards being adequately prepared for the season ahead. Amber-fryday reports. >> The canadian hurricane center is predicting an above average storm season for atlantic canada, mainly due to record warm water temperatures in the atlantic ocean. Another large factor is the expected shift in the pacific ocean from el nino to la nina. This reversal to la nina typically produces more storms in the atlantic. >> The other aspect of this is rapid intensification, and that's something that we've been , you know, watching very closely over the last number of years is just how rapidly these storms go from a tropical storm to a major hurricane. >> The U.S. national oceanic and atmospheric administration is forecasting its highest ever hurricane outlook in history for the 2024 season, noaa is predicting 17 to 25 named storms, including 8 to 13 hurricanes and 4 to 7 major hurricanes, but it's not clear how many could make landfall at the same time. >> The rainfall associated with hurricanes is also projected to become more intense, and with sea level rise, sea level rise will exacerbate the impacts associated with storm surges. >> The 2023 predictions were slightly lower. There were a few more named storms than projected, and three major hurricanes, in line with the prediction of 1 to 4 always trying to achieve a 70, confidence in their forecasts, this year, it's actually up to 85 that they that they've achieved with these numbers, so very, very high confidence level that it will be an active season. >> Meanwhile, the mayor of cape breton regional municipality says some parts of the region are still in recovery mode after hurricane fiona pummeled the island in 2022. She says preparedness for the storm season ahead is underway, as the municipality creates more designated comfort centers and is using $1.5 million from the federal government to equip a new emergency command center at city hall. >> You know, emotionally and mentally, people are scared knowing that hurricane season is coming up, that that's real. There's a certain type of ptsd that comes with surviving these types of events, though macdougall says she is also nervous as the season approaches, she is confident the municipality has done what they can to prepare, and robichaud recommends people follow that lead sooner rather than later. >> Amber-fryday "global news" halifax. >> A settlement has been reached between the province and the company behind pictou northern pulp mill. Paper excellence will abandon its plans to reopen the mill and instead pursue a new site in queens county. As skye-bryden-blom reports, a first nations chief who called out its environmental impact says it's been a long time coming. >> Premier tim houston says the agreement with paper excellence addresses a $450 million lawsuit by the company over northern pulp mills closure in 2020. He says it also deals with a $99 million in loans the firm owes the province. >> We participated in the in good faith in the in the court, court mediation process, and we've been participating in that for quite some time, looking for the best possible solution for nova scotians to protect pensioners to reinvigorate an industry. >> It was shut down four years ago after then premier stephen mcneil directed it to stop pumping wastewater into the harbour near pictou landing first nation. If the agreement is approved by the courts next week, the company will pursue opening a new mill on the south shore. >> This is about hope. Hope for hundreds of families who could rely on jobs provided by the mill. Hope for families in rural nova scotia, where there aren't a lot of employment opportunities. >> In a news release paper, excellence says it aims to build trust with the communities it serves, and this resolution clears the path for a collaborative future with the province. The company will need to file a feasibility study to ensure its new mill in the liverpool area is viable. >> Let me assure nova scotians that any project that comes forward will need to meet today's standards and will undergo environmental assessments, significant public engagement and indigenous

consultation. The former chief of pictou landing first nation, who rallied for the mill's closure, says it's been a long time coming and will give the community peace. >> This this is significant news for the people of pictou landing first nation. I would say, because they've really been harmed for many years from the impacts of this, environmental disaster when it comes to the future. >> Mill paul will be closely watching. >> So I guess now we just have to wait and see what the studies will say and go from there. >> Skye-bryden-blom "global news, halifax. >> A portion of a major street in downtown halifax is set to undergo a long-term closure due to the cogswell district project. The project involves the realignment of barrington street, the construction of a new halifax transit hub, and the relocation of four bus bays in front of scotia square. As a result, barrington street will be fully closed from upper water street to duke street. 30 bus routes passing through barrington and the surrounding area will be rerouted, and the four impacted bus bays will be relocated. The new halifax transit hub is expected to open by the end of the year, will include new heated shelters, additional seating space, among other features. Let's say good morning and happy friday to ross-hull ross. You're going to have to carry the show for me this morning, sir. I was out till 11. I went to bed at 11 last night after an east coast lifestyle foundation event in bayers-lake. And then I was awoken by the sounds of thunder. I think at 1 A.M. was I dreaming or was that real? >> No, you were not dreaming. I can confirm, paul. There was a thunderstorm reported at halifax stanfield and around the area overnight. The good news is, most of the rainfall will have cleared. We've got some mist and some fog out there, but we unfortunately had to get through it overnight and wake you up. But good for you for staying on, because I know getting to bed that late can be a big challenge. And you got to rest because you've got some other important activities, heading into the weekend, right? >> Yes, exactly. On sunday afternoon, I'll be in lower sackville. I believe it's acadia park for the ms-walks event for 2024, which the timing of that is much more in my wheelhouse, like 2:00 in the afternoon. So I'll be ready to rock for that event and looking forward to the walk coming up for a great cause. >> Yeah. And where I have to come in is I have to provide some good weather for you, right. This weekend and for all those activities. And I think I can deliver on that. So yeah, let me take this on for you, paul. You take a little break there and let's show you what actually did move through the area earlier on. You can see some of the thunderstorm activity, some of the rainfall activity that did move through a closer look here. You can see it's pushing towards the east though cape breton into it early this morning. But for the most part, much of nova scotia going to stay dry today. Another weak front is going to push through new brunswick, bringing the chance of some showers and the risk of a thunderstorm, but it certainly won't be a washout. What you will notice though, the reason why we did see those thunderstorms and woke up, paul, is the fact that it was a cold front, so it's not going to be quite as humid today. Still above average for many spots, just not that humidity into the high 20s, low 30s even higher than that that we've been experiencing of late. It's still pretty mild out there. Mid teens, low double digits for most areas and we will get back up to the 20s around halifax today a little cooler farther east. Some areas that do experience a little more shower activity and still into the high 20s mid to high 20s as you head to places like fredericton and moncton today so you can see that chance of a shower or thunderstorm this afternoon. We should stay dry across much of nova scotia and then heading into saturday, a few clouds, sun cloud mix should stay dry for all areas. A few scattered showers. Northeastern new brunswick and then on sunday ms-walks sun cloud mix. It will be a little cooler, so likely temperatures between 16 to 18 degrees around halifax, most areas around the hrm. And then we'll get into a little more of an unsettled pattern into early next week. So let's break it down for you. For fredericton, 22 degrees a sun cloud mix 21 on sunday. A little more cloud cover on monday, and we're looking at some wet weather into early next week. We actually do need it because our rainfall has run below average this month for halifax and the hrm. We're getting up to low 20s on saturday, souncloud mix perhaps a little bit more cloud cover on sunday, and there's that cooler air mass 16 degrees slightly off our normal or average high 14 on monday. And then we'll have to watch out for some rain heading into tuesday and wednesday. I hope you all have a great weekend, including you, paul. And that's a look at your ok-tire-weather. >> All right, same to you. Thanks for this ross-hull. And before a break, let's have a look at gas prices in nova scotia. Up 0.8 cents per liter to sit at $1.76 point $0.04 a liter in halifax and sydney, $1.78 point $0.04 a liter with diesel at buck 75.4 cents per liter. That's a look at your local news headlines.
