The Weather Channel is presenting video game-like simulations of Hurricane Florence's potential severity
"As Hurricane Florence flood warnings continue to surge, the Weather Channel has found a way to make them hit home: with a visualization of what the storm surge could look like 'in reality,'" reports Rachel Withers. "With experts still trying to convince residents to evacuate in spite of a category downgrade, the immersive mixed reality is an upgrade on the standard topographic inundation map—and a powerfully sobering use of technology. The viral visualization shows a presenter standing on a simulated street, as simulated floodwaters rise higher around her, showing various possible depths—otherwise just numbers—in relation to her body." ALSO: CNN's Anderson Cooper, Don Lemon and Chris Cuomo caught all wearing "short sleeve muscle polo shirts" while out covering the hurricane.
