Hurricane Florence: This is some pretty nifty animation

Hurricane Florence: This is some pretty nifty animation

I’ve often wondered about the wisdom of sending reporters out into the weather to give the viewer seated in the comfort of his home a more accurate sense of what the storm is like. The Weather Channel may have wondered as well whether because yesterday afternoon the channel broadcast a lifelike animated video of potential flood conditions from Hurricane Florence.

Once again, a live reporter was on hand, in this case meteorologist Erika Navarro, to describe the putative conditions as the water rose first to three feet, then to six, and finally to nine. But Navarro managed to stay safe and dry within a circle of protection.

The animation portion of the report, which begins at the 0:44 mark in the video, is well worth watching.
