fall. >> the operation to save the 12 boyds and their coach were stuck in that cave dm thailand. they've been there for more than two weeks and that rescue mission is now under way. a local governor calling this "d" day, the high-risk mission starting just hours ago around 11:00 p.m. eastern time. now, officials say that it should take about six hours for skilled divers to reach the boys and another five hours to exit. this entire operation, though, could take two to three days as the boys are being rude likely one by one. >> and they truly are racing against the weather now because the heavy rains in some areas have already started and monsoon level rains are expected to intensify over the next week. >> we have two open tack cals, water and time. this is what we have been racing against since day one.
we have to do all we can, even though it is hard to fight the force of nature. all we need say suitable time window when you will conditions are right to carry out the operation. we have been waiting for this right moment. >> david mckenzie live near the cave site there in thailand. david, two things. tell us about the weather and what else is happening around you right now. >> reporter: victor, diane, important, critical moments have been happening now in thailand. the mountain behind me, that's where that cave system is where that ongoing rescue attempt is now in those stages where we believe we may see one of those boys, the 12 boys and their coach emerge in the coming hours. now we just learned from a source that the boys will have to choose amongst themselves and use the assessment of a doctor as to which one of them will go
team is trapped present more challenges for the rescuers. the group was found 2 1/2 miles from the entrance the cave, which is about six tenths of a mile underground. the journey will start with divers taking just one boy at a time. that part is more than a mile long. they'll have to travel through narrow and flooded passages which some have described, consider this, as having absolutely no visibility. now once they've reached the command center, you see that here, special rescue teams will take over at that point. they'll help the boys through the rest of the journey, this is still more than a mile to the exit and it may require carrying those boys on stretchers. the divers will head back the other way to get back to the bo boys and their coach until all of them are out. >> now, minutes after the international dive team went
into the cave, the seals posted this picture on social media. you can see it shows three members holding on to each other's wrist with the caption that reads, we, the thai seals, along with the international diver team are ready to bring the soccer team home. now 13 international divers and five thai navy seals are carrying out the rescue mission. >> joining us now is rescue diver butch hendrick. thank you so much for staying with puts you've helped us understand the challenges throughout this mission and now that it has begun and we know that the rain coming in, what is your primary concern as this plan comes to fruition? >> my biggest concern at the moment, i'm sure for them, they've said it already, is time and water. the fact that it is raining and they've been pumping water nonstop and the water level is continuously rising. if you think about what originally took place was tunnel flooded, water pushed in and the boys got trapped.
as the rain increases, we're looking at a situation that's almost similar visually to what's happening in japan. the water just starts moving and there is no stopping it. which means that for our divers to be able to get out becomes an unbelievably difficult task. not just to carry out victim, but just get out themselves. >> butch, how exactly i know that this isn't something that you were working on, but how exactly can they go about getting these boys out in that situation? it doesn't seem like something you can quite just speed up, if you will. >> they know their pace. you can be sure that they have already practiced what they were going to be doing to get these boys out. they've worked it one or two times with a mock situation, if you will. they know where their props are going to be, they've set up for that. even the most veteran cave diver in the world is going to have a difficult time here because we
don't usually think of going into water that's zero visibility and has a physical current or flow that we have to fight against in order to be able to get forward. so they've practiced this for sure before they've decided to move these boys. >> let's talk about what we know about the plan, and they're not releasing all of the details, but we know that there are children specialists divers and five thai navy seals. so you've got 18 people here with an around the clock operation. do you expect that they're working, you know, in eight-hour shifts of six, all 18, all at once? how do you expect if you're organizing this that this is happening in this cave system? >> i would imagine if i were at command has split his team in half. he has "x" amount of individuals moving the boys and as soon as they've moved they need a rest period. he knows if he pushes them too hard they won't be able to
function. they may have actually broken it into three teams saying who's going to move the boys from here to here, point "a" to point "b," from point "b" to point krrveti "c" and he knows he's going to pass them off after that to people with stretchers and carry them out. he knows if he overloads his manpower, he endangers his own manpower in order go get them back out, he could lose his own. >> in moving towards that, butch, you talk about the rain coming in, talk about the water rising. it's not just the divers who are a part of this rescue mission, though, correct? the divers work with others including doctors and people who are trying to make sure their supply is there. but the key part is getting them through the part with the water, still? >>
we are seeing in the cameras on your site, they are already running a knot and a half to two knots of moving water they are fighting against now. the physical force for get out. what we are going to do prior to this exit beginning. >> the water there formidable enemy. they have been pumping out 400,000 gallons of water and more rain is happening and on the way. rescue diver butch hendrick,
thaur f thank you for helping us understand this p.m. there is rain happening now. the monsoon level rains are expected to intensify the next week. >> cnn meteorologist allison chinchar is joining us now. david talked about the intense rains they experienced laea lit while ago. this is going to keep up the next week now. >> and get worse next week. by that i mean the amount of rain that is going to fall is going to get larger and larger so that is a concern. that window is narrowing very quickly. here is a look at the satellite. here you can see thailand. this is the area around where the cave is. all of the orange and red colors you see here is the moisture. that rain moving back into the area. and it's really starting to surge. you're going to see more frequent downpours as those rain showers get closer. here is a look at the last couple of weeks. we had a lot of rain early on in june. but the good news was from july 2nd to the 7th a break but notice yesterday on or 11 hours
ahead of us there they get rain and we will continue to see the rain. sunday, monday, and tuns high rain chances 80% to 90% chance of rain. the upcoming week, we have rain chances every day but notice as we get to the next week, how they start to rise. this is where we are going to see a big concern because then it becomes a point there's too much water going into the cave and they cannot pump it out fast enough. so, again, this is going to be a concern in the coming days if they have to get these boys out before some of the really torrential rain begins because they are not able to get the water out fast enough as it's coming in. >> allison chinchar, a true race against nature at this point. thank you very much. appreciate it. breaking news that rescue mission is under way trying to
get those 12 boys trapped in the cave out, our team coverage will continue. our team will be live throughout the hour. we are hearing from the father of the youngest boy trapped in that cave. the message he has for his son as the rescue mission continues. secretary of state mike pompeo dismisses north korea's comments that the u.s. has. almost $800 when we switched our auto and home insurance. with liberty, we could afford a real babysitter instead of your brother. hey! oh, that's my robe.

david mckenzie is there and he says a doctor will consult to tell the boys who may be the strongest to leave but they will make the decision. >> there are medical teams waiting outside the cave and ready and take action sentence the fir -- as soon as the first of those boys emerge. the medical professionals are the first step in what is a massive medical operation. >> after more than two weeks underground, boys are weakened. a team of doctors and nurses and paramedics will assess each boy before and then flown to a hospital roughly 35 miles from the cave. outside the hospital, a dozen beds are waiting for the boys and their coach there. this is a massive operation. understand that. especially for twhos are rescuing and also the families. the waiting has to be excruciating. >> it has to be. the father of one of the youngest boys in the cave has been waiting for news and he is telling us now, today, about his son.
[ speaking in foreign language ] >> translator: 15 days after he first disappeared, the boy's bedroom has not changed and typically of a bedroom for him and his father wants it to be like that for when the 11-year-old makes it out of cave. >> translator: he has been playing football since he was young and started it at age 8 or 9. he wants to be a professional football player. >> reporter: on june 23rd, he told his mom he was going to football practice. the next time he is she saw his newly gaunt face was in this video after the team was discovered on july 2nd, nine days after they disappeared. no phone lines could be established to the parents wrote letter to their kids and their kids wrote back. shawn is the youngest inside and showed bravely beyond his years. >> translator: he said is fine and not to worry about him.
>> reporter: all the family can do is wait and hope for the best and the children's young lives are in the hands of divers carrying out a rescue the world is watching. >> translator: i knew they worked so hard and their best to try to take the children and coach out. >> reporter: before the operation began, we asked the father what he would say so his son still sitting on a small piece of land hundreds of feet below the surface. >> translator: i will tell him i am worried. i want him to be healthy to get enough strength to dive osafely >> reporter: he wrote he would like his uncle to take him for fried chicken as soon as he gets out. his dad looking at his son's picture told us, no problem, whatever he wants. just make it out okay. matt rivers, cnn, in chiang rai, thailand. they attended the same meetings in north korea to nail
down details on denuclearization but the difference between u.s. and north korea, it's striking. secretary of state mike pompeo calls the talks productive and saying progress was made but north korea slammed what it called the united states gangster-like mindset. >> speaking to reporters just a few hours ago in tokyo, the secretary of state pushed back on that. >> i am counting on chairman kim to be determined to follow through on the commitment that he makes and so if those requests were gangster-like the world is a gangster because a unanimous decision that it needs to be made. >> north korea is committed to dismantling the nuclear program despite the satellites showing they are making improvements to their nuclear facilities. in thailand, rescuers are working frantically to try to get the 12 boys and their coach
out. we are told that the boys, themselves, will have to decide who will leave first and if everything is on schedule, quite possible that decision has already been made. we don't know yet. we go back live to near the cave with our david mckenzie qwho is there and we will try to get some answers. of its own. its multi-cloud complexity creating friction... and slowing innovation. with software-defined solutions, like hpe oneview, you can tame the it monster. hewlett packard enterprise. less complexity. more visibility.

and s.e.a.l.s are scrambling now to rescue 12 boys and their coach who have been trapped deep inside a flooded cave. the main obstacles facing the rescuers rising water and dark tight cave passages. >> the boys have been there two wae weeks. and they will decide amongst themselves who will leave first. a doctor will consult. a local governor says it's d-dated to try to get them out before the heaviest monsoon rains. >> translator: yesterday, the water level was the lowest. and, today, the water level in chambers number one, two, and three inside the cave is low enough to walk through them. the water of some parts recedes as much assess 30 secentimeters.
and if we keep waiting then we have to start all over again. >> let's go back now to the cave and cnn's david mckenzie is near the cave in chiang rai. >> you said the kids have to decide between themselves. it doesn't appear to be raining right now but it was earlier. have we gotten any update? we have roughly seven hours into the operation now. >> that's right. >> reporter: around seven hours in, and we don't know which of those young boys from that soccer team will be coming out first. and the attempt i should say to get them out first. they will first have to go through that treacherous section of underwater tunnels with the specialist divers, then they will be handed off, according to our source, to a second team that will take them out on stretchers just in case to the cave entrance. then put the ambulances on the
road in the coming hours. it's a tense wait. an agonizing wait for the families. one of those young boys is 14 years old, he had his birthday, as well as a couple of others, in that cave. and we spoke to his aunt and his grandmother. his aunt found out that the rescue is under way by looking on social media like many other people and they gave a really emotional response to the ongoing rescue. >> translator: it's like i'm counting every second. i want to see his face. i want to see how he gets out, how they get him out. i am so happy. >> translator: grandmother loves you most in the whole world. i miss you dearly. i think every country, everyone helps the kids to get out. it's like a miracle.
>> reporter: these are tightly knit communities and families and they are waiting, along with everyone else. the parents of projack will be on the mountain behind me right now waiting to hear if he comes out, will he come out? and is he safe. >> david, to you. as it relates to the communication, if he'll come out and when he'll come out and if he is safe, what is the degree of communication between those who are inside trying to get to the boys and when those outside of the rescue will know we have the first one and we are on our way back? will they they know it on the outside and will we know when they have the first boy? >> look. it's a very sensitive issue, of course, because even if one boy gets out safely, they are still 11 more people, including the coach, to get out. of course, everyone wants everybody out safely, so it all
depends on how the authorities decide to release that news. the way it will work on a logistical level. the boys will come out from that horrible tight squeeze to chamber three. at that point there will be a second team, as i said, and they will know pretty quickly and doctors on the scene to assess their state of health. we will certainly know when an ambulance is flying past us to a hospital where we have teams monitoring what the situation is there. they have had hospital beds ready. the staff is ready to take them in. up until this point, the boys have been remarkably well. three of them had some health issues and the oxygen levels were such that they got very concerned about hypoxia and other health concerns, but we might not know exactly. the information could drip out, as it were, or we could get it all at once. but it could take hours and even days, according to the governor, for this all to be resolved and,
hopefully, hopefully, resolved in a positive way. >> david mckenzie, thank you so much for us there in thailand and keeping us updated as the morning goes. >> joining us on the phone is emily davis. she was in new mexico at a survey expedition when she was stuck in a cave and help arrived 12 hours in. emily, thank you for being with us. >> good morning. >> reporter: emily, look. these are caves that are narrow and tough to navigate and filling quickly with water and not something you had to deal with in your cave rescue that the rescuers had to deal with you, but this narrow difficult to navigate area is something you can talk about those challenges rescuers may face. >> yes. the narrow area is the most difficult because not only did i have to fit through a tight passage which cave explores are
comfortable with, but other people see and look at it and say, oh, i could never fit through that. they have to do this with tanks and with the kids in tow. so they are moving through something that is difficult to move through even if there were air in it, and they are having to do is through water. so it's a matter of the divers instilling confidence in the kids and having a method of pulling them through and having them go through and the kids are tired. the kids have been malnourished. so it's very hard. but the divers that are there, excuse me. the divers that are there are top-notch international cave divers. they really know their stuff. so i have confidence they will be able to do this. >> when this plan is executed because we know that there are now 18 divers, 13 internationals and 5 thy navy s.e.a.l.s a part
of this, is this plan still malleable? is everybody following it by the book the way it's written or is there still room, even as it's beginning to things to shift and change and that does, itself, create a danger? >> cave rescue has to be malleable. they have to be available for change. and these are experienced people who will recognize issues and change as need be. they probably have a plan in place, but there has to be some flexible, depending on any situation. the fact that they have drained the water down to the level they have, i think, makes a major difference and it will make it a considerably easier rescue, as difficult as it will be, but there has to be availability of change and because these guys are so experienced, they will be able to change on the fly.
>> i want to talk about that experience in a moment again, but, first, any sort of medical issues the boys could be facing? i know doctors have been trying to assess them as they go on, but are we talking hypothermia here? we already know about the lack of objection again and some of them are sick from that. >> some of the medical issues are out of the sight of my knowledge. i do know one of the things we study in cave rescue, especially in the northeast united states where i am, is hypothermia and you have to remember that a body's temperature is 98.6 normal. and that the water, even in a warm thy cave, may be only 70 degrees. so we are talking about 30 degrees below body temperature. you can cool off pretty quickly. if you're not healthy, you can cool off even faster, so hypothermia will be one of their major concerns. >> emily, you keep talking about experienced cave divers and we
know that who are rescuing the boys are experienced. you, yourself, 90 hours in that cave but you were an experienced cave diver. you knew how to sort of go through these small areas. you said it wasn't frightening for you to go through these narrow passages. these are just little boys. they are ages 11 to 16. they are not experienced in any of this and their coach is 25. they are not cave divers. they are soccer players. >> well, i'm not a cave diver. i'm an experienced indicativcav there was no water in my cave. what you have to look at with the boys these divers will instill confidence in them. their expertise will help and one of the things that you work on in a cave rescue situation is the psychology of your patients. and they will be looking at that every moment to try and have the kids thinking about getting home to their parents, that they need
to have fortitude for short periods of time and they will be out with their families. and i think that the experienced cave rescue people who are there will help with this psychological part of the rescue, which is so important. one of the most important factors to get the kids out. >> one more for you, emily, here. we have been told that the will have to choose amongst themselves who will leave first. how do you prioritize who leaves first? the weakest out first because of medical needs? the strongest out first because we will see if this plan actually works the way we have written it out? how do you decide? >> i'm hoping that they choose the strongest because, again, the psychology. if you have the strongest go out first, it succeeds and the word can get back to the other kids, that this first person has made it through, he's on his way to the hospital, it will help
strengthen the weaker kid, that they know it can be done, they know there is a chance that they will be out with their families in a certain amount of time. >> excellent point. emily davis, thank you so much for helping us understand this. >> my pleasure. >> record rainfall is forcing millions to evacuate their homes in japan now where entire communities are under water. we are going to bring you the latest on that extreme weather in japan after the break.

affected and set up along central japan. one moves out and another one forms. it moves out and another form over the same spot and the areas don't get a break from the rain. when that happens you can get tremendous amounts of rain that fall. take a look at these just in the last 72 hours. 47 inches of rain. 30 inches. you have to keep in mind some of the areas like kyoto are high tourist destinations so you have a lot of people not only that live there but are visiting there that don't know where to go in some of these locations. they do have shelters that have been set up but keep that in mind this is a lot of rain and in a very short period of time. now there is still some additional rainfall expected. the good news is what is left should be less than, say, about 2 inches. guys? >> allison chinchar, thank you
so much. the operation to rescue the trapped boys in thailand is happening right now. of course, the urgency has been increased because the rain is picking up and will not stop for days. we will have the latest both there in thailand and from our severe weather center in a moment. ♪ ♪ ♪ raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens ♪ ♪ bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens ♪ ♪ brown paper packages tied up with strings ♪ ♪ these are a few of my favorite things ♪ ♪ ♪ [ drum roll ] ...emily lapier from ames, iowa. this is emily's third nomination and first win. um...so, just...wow!

anxiously unsure if the boys were still alive. >> translator: my students were sad. some even cried when they heard the news. i told them to pray which is the only thing they could do at that moment. >> reporter: they will continue praying and hoping every day, he says, until the 12 players and coach are back above ground. at a make-shift vigil at another school where one of the trapped boys is a student, they have posted photos and messages of support. students have also have filled the sky with a thousands birds. >> i told my students to pray and asked them to make birds because we think it means good luck. >> reporter: in a nearby village the grandmother of one of the boys is keeping her own vigil supported by her friends. she says that every day at 8:00 a.m., she and her friends listen to the news for updates, share meals, and pray. >> translator: i went every day to the temple to make merit. every day i pray for them to be
