More than a million evacuate ahead of hurricane florence
Caitlin Moran, ABC News
With Tropical Storm Nate moving toward Florida, about 500,000 residents have been asked to evacuate their homes, CBS News correspondent Bill Whitaker reports from Tallahassee.
It’s already had a huge impact on Florida’s tourism industry, with more than 150 days of hurricane season opening today and tomorrow.
On top of that, Hurricane Nate is forecast to produce more tropical rain — more storm surge — than any other hurricane in the region in the past 150 years, and likely to do that for weeks after it makes landfall.
At a news conference in Key West, Fla., Saturday evening, Gov. Rick Scott prom바카라사이트ised that “it’s going to be an event you never want to miss.”
But to watch the storm unfold from the Gulf Coast with a sense of dread is not exactly how it should be.

We’re in a dangerous environment
As the forecast model released Friday put the storm’s eye near Miami, Florida, many were surprised that the storm is not closer to the Keys, and at least two tropical storms are expected to track more north toward the state.
What’s going on?
That’s what you’ll hear here — weather balloons, weather systems and satellites have provided a huge increase in information about the storm — inc우리카지노luding some that were hard to decipher as the forecast changed.
But there’s so much going on right now that it’s easy to overlook that what’s called a radar echo from a radar echo is not just the weather balloons bouncing off the clouds; it’s also the weather there that is, in some sense, still trying to pick up the signal from our satellite.
Just as we start to see new radar bands, you know, the clouds move to their highest point. So, these are the first bands we see in a storm 더킹카지노track. And the cloud cover is what’s providing that initial wind shear from the center of the storm, when we see this high-resolution signal from the satellite that shows the winds and pressure just going up and down around that shear band that you can see from our radar radar. It’s the wind shear — it’s sort of the signature of the jet stream coming into the storm — and it’s all sort of going up and down around that shear band. So, if we look at the radar signal from the stor
