the only things that didn't flood here in northeastern bangladesh. heavy rains, combined with overflowing rivers. inundated this town, i want all my furniture is ruined. the entire house is under throat level. water goes off, up on a major embankment on the butter river, has also breached affecting at least a 100 villages. i've seen a huge flood in 2004, but this time it's even bigger, more serious, to be an estimated to 1000000 people are displaced with their homes damaged or destroyed in this farming community. men and women are trying to save the harvest. they have left drying their crops along highways. las vegas had got a new re, angie, buggy here. and they're very neat. i only managed to harvest one 3rd of my patty from underneath the water. the rest was washed away. it's been 2 weeks since there
10:03 am
was any sun. excessive rain has devastated whatever i manage to collect. i can't try this up. it's rotting on the polled. well, no than me. i don't know. i mean, many parts of bangladesh are prone to flooding with about a 5th of the country submerged every year. but climate scientists say our warming world is making it more unpredictable. the monsoon season hasn't even started yet. leah harding al jazeera now to india, where more than 800000 people were affected by the flooding there. but as poverty, metallic reports from the now gone district and many a refusing to leave her homes buried about well and up for like a blu ray. she the weird threw water several times a day to get essentials. his home has been flooded for days. he says he's tried getting help, but shelters are full, and his family is still waiting for government aid. it will put it in
10:04 am
a hurry bullet, put it on her. we are facing many difficulties. you can see for yourself. there's so much water. we have no way to get out. there's barely enough food. we had some rice at home, but now that's also over hundreds of thousands of other people have been displaced by floods caused by heavy rains. in a psalm state in india, northeast nego district is the hardest hit. more than 300000 people have been affected. the water here comes from a nearby river that overflowed and its rockfish that some villagers are catching to eat. despite the rising water levels, many people are choosing to stay back, waiting for the time to time, so they can stop rebuilding. many people are being evacuated rafts like these have been crossing flooded roads and feels to rescue people stranded for days. lots, any problem here we are facing many problem. some people in my family are not keeping well, and i asked them to come with me, but they didn't want to leave. they wanted to stay at home. and i said,
10:05 am
the military is using aircraft and boats to help distribute aid. last blood wasn't bothering for the c v one actually after that the people just talk about that blood as it a highest one on the severity of the flood is, has our class death flood on. so now though danger level of evil here is $59.00 point ones. it all army does, but it is the cross, the danger level it, which is now 60.39 meters. although water levels are slowly receding, people already the monsoon season will begin in a few weeks and the rains are usually heavy and caused flooding. pardon him at the arches, eda nego district in northeast india. now years president joe biden is in the air heading to japan from south korea, where he's worked hard to firm up security and economic ties. north korea was especially high on the gender, of course, after a series of missile launches this year, u. s. intelligence suggest that could be another imminent nuclear weapons test,
10:06 am
asked about the potential threats president biden said he would not be distracted. we are prepared for anything north korea does. we've had to put through how we respond to whatever they do. and so i'm not concerned suggest robert wright is study by and take a will go to him off to me 1st check in with from st. louis who's in. so and florence it before joe biden left southcourt, he visited a secure, underground facility didn't that's right now front and center of his trip to south korea was the issue of security and that's been made more pressing because of intelligence reports, but suggest north korean leader kim jong who may be preparing to conduct a 7th new care test or launch another intercontinental ballistic missile. so it was significant and really very symbolic that he chose as on his last day of that, his trip to south korea that he chose to visit an air force command center together
10:07 am
with south korean president units. so you'll, this, i think, is to highlight the strength of these 2 countries security alliance. and just a day before that, the 2 leaders had met at a summit. and they did agreed that they would expand that the scope of their combined to military exercises. they would enhance sanctions, they would look at possibly deploying more strategic weapons to the region to counter the threats from north korea. but it wasn't just about security. biden's trip was also just as much about economy and to this he had tailored his itinerary really very much for a domestic audience consumption back in the u. s. he took a samson computer chip plant as soon as he arrived in south korea. i'm his last day he met with hyundai moto group chairman, and these are companies that are investing billions to build facilities back in the u. s. so i think the message that biden wants to send is that his bringing jobs back to the u. s. he's working to ensure a supply chain resilience,
10:08 am
he's working to ensure that the u. s. maintains an edge in emerging technologies. and of course, and the overarching theme analysts say is that the u. s. wants to say that it is back in the region. it wants to send this message to friends and allies in the region and also to china that it is committed to the inner pacific region and it wants the country's yet to see it as a counterweight to china's rising influence or a foreign thanks to vote for hillary reporting merlots a move on to took care of the brightest on the by the and robert. so the main events will be the court leaders summit that's right, that's all leading up to that summit. but security will feature very strong be throughout this trip. i think this is as with south korea, this is meant to bolster, build a stronger alliance with the most important probably of the americas allies in the east asia at the time when you have this increase test nuclear testing from adult career, it's a way of showing that the united states stands with its allies. it also sends
10:09 am
a message to china, which is becoming increasingly assertive. it's something which is felt very keenly here in japan, in a number of different territorial disputes in the east china sea. i think it also with events in ukraine is meant to send a message to moscow that, you know, this is the united states leading this international community in isolating russia for its actions. the leading sanctions, a boy called sanctions, which are supported by japan. and in fact, the americans of praise japan full rallying other nations here in the asia pacific region in condemning what russia has been doing. so we can expect in the next couple of days, all of these themes to feature very prominently here in the center of tokyo sunday afternoon. the streets are very quiet, but there's a very heavy police presence here in the next couple of days. we can expect all sorts of motor cade's back and forth, of course, culminating in this quote meeting on tuesday. this summit of the, of this alliance of the united states, japan, australia, and india. again,
10:10 am
very much, very much directed at trying to can to china is growing diplomatic and military influence across the asia pacific region. or i'll leave it to me. thanks very much . the for that update to australia where the prime minister alights, entity, albany, is heading to tokyo shortly, offering swan. and he's promising to reset relations with the world and sweep side . what he says has be then ineffective australian response to climate change of what he says. labor party bonds, saturdays election, ending nearly 10 years. a conservative government, he's projected to secure a slim majority in policy. obviously, the quad latest meeting is an absolute priority for australia. and it is, it enables us to send a message to the world that way. there is a change of government, there will be some changes in policy, particularly with regard to climate change in our engagement with the world on those issues. and i look forward to the meetings that have been organized or let's
