National Hurricane Center issues public advisory on Hurricane Dorian, live stream


IT’S STARTING TO CLEAR OUT. THAT’S A SIGN IT’S GETTING BETTER ORGANIZED, IT’S GETTING STRONGER, AND WE’LL LIKELY SEE THIS STORM TURN INTO A CATEGORY 3 LATER ON THIS AFTERNOON. SO THE LATEST STATS ON THE STORM ARE 110-MILE AN HOUR WINDS. BUT ONE OF THE BIG THINGS WE’LL TAKE A LOOK AT IS JUST HOW MUCH RAIN THIS THING WILL DUMP. IF IT’S GOING TO TAKE AS LONG AS IT’S PROJECTED TO, AND BELIEVE ME IT’S GOING TO TAKE A LONG TIME TO MAKE ITS WAY THROUGH THE STATE OF FLORIDA, IT’S GOING TO RAIN OVER THE SAME AREAS FOR A LONG PERIOD OF TIME. WE’RE LOOKING ALT WELL OVER A FOOT OF RAIN. AND THE POTENTIAL FOR 16 INCHES OR MORE OF RAIN IN SPOTS. >>THIS IS STARTING TO MOVE, WE TALKED TO KEN GRAHAM, HE SAID THIS IS SLOWING DOWN. WHICH IS NOT A GOOD THING FOR A STORM. WHAT DOES THAT MEAN WHEN IT SLOWS DOWN? >>THE INTERESTING THING ABOUT IT SLOWING DOWN MEANS IT HAS THE POTENTIAL TO GAIN MORE FUEL. >>MOR TIME OVER WARM WATER. >>RIGHT. IT’S GOING OVER THE BAHAMAS. THE BAHAMAS IS NOT EVEN A SPEED BUMP. THE ISLANDS ARE FLAT, THEY’RE TINY. THEY’RE NOT GOING TO BE ENOUGH TO DISRUPT THE STORM. SO WHAT YOU’RE GOING TO HAVE IS SOMETHING STRENGTHENING RIGHT INTO LAND FALL. IT’S INCREDIBLY WARM, BASICALLY UNTIL YOU GET WITHIN FIVE MILES OF THE STATE COASTLINE, IT’S PRETTY DEEP TOO. ALL OF THOSE THINGS GIVE YOU THE INDICATION IT’S GOING TO LIKELY CONTINUE TO GET WORSE AND WORSE. SO THE ONE THING THAT I WANT PEOPLE TO PAY ATTENTION TO IS THAT LAND FALL TIMELINE IS SO VAGUE BECAUSE THE SPEED IS SO SLOW. IF IT — YOU KNOW, IT’S ALL AN ANGULAR THING. IF IT DIPS FURTHER SOUTH, IT’S GOING TO TAKE LONG TORE HAVE THAT LAND FALL. MAYBE THAT’S AT 6:00 A.M. IF IT CUTS CLOSER, SHORTER DISTANCE, MAYBE IT’S AT MIDNIGHT. IT’S ALL OF THOSE THINGS, WHEN IT’S MOVING AT 3 MILES AN HOUR, THE DIFFERENCE OF TEN MILES IS A DIFFERENCE OF THREE HOURS. A SERIOUS DISTANCE OPPOSED TO THE NORMAL SPEED. RIGHT NOW IT’S MOVING AT 12 MILES AN HOUR. THAT’S UNDER AN HOUR. >>WE USUALLY SEE THEM MAKE HAND FALL ON THE NORTH SIDE OF IT. THIS THINGS SEEMS LIKE IT’S GOING TO HOOK A LEFT AT FLORIDA. >>THAT’S EXACTLY WHAT’S GOING TO HAPPEN. >>WHAT’S THE SIGNIFICANCE OF HITTING HERE ON THE MAP? BECAUSE EVERYBODY KNOWS IN THE NORTHEAST CORNER OF THE STORM, THAT’S HITTING ON THE LEFT SIDE. >>RIGHT, SO YEAH, A COUPLE INTERESTING THINGS TO NOTE, THE AIR STILL FLOWS AROUND IN A COUNTERCLOCKWISE FASHION. IT’S GOING TO BE DOING THIS. SO ALL THE WATER IS GOING TO PILE ON THE ENTIRE EAST COAST. WHICH IS WHY IT’S THE WORST POSSIBLE SITUATION, RIGHT? BECAUSE YOU’VE GOT THE RIGHT FRONT OF THE STORM PUSHING THE STRONGEST WINDS, THE HEAVIEST RAIN, AND ALSO THE STRONGEST STORM SURGE ON TO THE STATE. THAT’S A PROBLEM. AND THEN WHEN IT MAKES THAT RIGHT HAND TURN AND GOES UP THE REST OF THE STATE, THEN AGAIN, YOU’RE STILL PILING THAT STORM SURGE ON. SO IT’S A DOUBLE WHAMMY. IT’S THE SAME REASON THAT IN THE CASE OF SANDY THINGS WERE REALLY BAD IN NEW YORK CITY, BECAUSE IT CAME IN AT THAT SAME ANGLE. ANDREW CAME IN AT THIS ANGLE. ALL OF THESE THINGS SERIOUS THINGS. DORIAN HAS A LOT OF UNCERTAINTY IN THE EXACT TIMING, AND THE EXACT POSITIONING. BUT THERE’S GOING TO BE DEVASTATION SOMEWHERE IN FLORIDA. THE QUESTION IS, JUST HOW BAD IT’S GOING TO BE. IS IT GOING TO BE CATASTROPHIC? OR IS IT JUST GOING TO BE DEVASTATING? AND THE OTHER QUESTION WILL BE EXACTLY WHEN AND WHERE. BUT PEOPLE IN FLORIDA, IF THEY’RE NOT PREPARING, OR TAKING THIS SERIOUS HI, I DON’T KNOW WHAT THEY’RE DOING. THE FORECAST FROM THE HURRICANE CENTER WAS ABOUT AS CLEAR AS IT COULD BE IN THE DISCUSSION LAST NIGHT WHICH BASICALLY SAID THERE’S NO REASON WE’VE GONE THROUGH ALL THE REASONS. THERE’S NO REASON THIS THING WON’T BE A CATEGORY 4. SO THERE’S NO SILVER BULLET HERE THAT’S GOING TO VALLEY THEM FROM A STORM WITH WINDS OF 140 MILES AN HOUR. >>IN THE EAST COAST, WHEN HURRICANES COME IN THROUGH THE GULF. THEY’RE HITTING STRAIGHT LAND. IF PART OF IT IS STILL EXPOSED OVER THE WATER ON THE ATLANTIC, IS THAT STILL GIVING IT A LITTLE BIT OF FUEL. >>YOU BET. THAT’S THE THING. THE REASON ANDREW WAS ABLE TO CROSS AND WILL MORE ABLE TO CROSS, THEY WENT OVER THE EVERGLADES. THE EVERGLADES IS A BODY OF WATER ON LAND. THAT WAS ALLOWED TO KEEP ITS ACT TOGETHER EVEN THERE. THE STORM MIGHT GO OVER LAKE OKEECHOBEE THAT CAN BE A FUEL SOURCE. ANYTHING OVER WATER CAN BE A FUEL SOURCE. IT’S A CATEGORY 1. A FULL 30 HOURS AFTER IT’S MADE LAND FALL AND IT’S BARE HI NORTH OF ORLANDO. >>RAIN, RAIN, RAIN,. >>AND STORM SURGE ALL THE WAY UP TO JACKSONVILLE. >>ALL RIGHT, DAVID, THANK YOU VERY MUCH. >>SURE THING. >>>WE WANT TO REMIND YOU UCONN STREAM LIVE COVERAGE OF HURRICANE DORIAN FOR FREE ON CBSN.

COMEY’S FIRING LED TO THE APPOINTMENT OF A SPECIAL COUNCIL, ROBERT MULLER. PRESIDENT TRUMP WEIGHED IN TWEETING COMEY SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF HIMSELF. FOR MORE ON THIS, LET’S BRING IN CBS NEWS WHITE HOUSE CORRESPONDENT PAULA REID. YOU’VE BEEN FOLLOWING THIS STORY CLOSELY. WHAT ARE THE BIGGEST TAKE AWAYS FROM THIS? >>THE BIGGEST TAKE AWAY IS THAT THE INSPECTOR GENERAL FOUND THAT THE FORMER FBI DIRECTOR DID NOT POLICE HANDLE CLASSIFY INFORMATION. — MISHANDLE CLASSIFIED INFORMATION. >>>THE INSPECTOR GENERAL TAKES A LOT OF TIME IN THIS REPORT TODDLE HOW SIGNIFICANT — TO DETAIL HOW SIGNIFICANT THIS IS. HE POINTS OUT IF THE RANK AND FILE IGNORE POLICY SHARING INFORMATION WHEN THEY DEEM IT APPROPRIATE THE FBI WOULD NOT BE ABLE TO FUNCTION. THEY CALLED COMEY OUT AS A HYPOCRITE. THEY QUOTE HIM AS HAVING TOLD THE PRESIDENT HOW IMPORTANT IT IS THAT SENSITIVE INFORMATION NOT BE LEAKED TO THE MEDIA SO THE FBI CAN GO ABOUT DOING ITS JOB PROPERLY. AND THEN THEY NOTE HE TURNED AROUND AND LEAKED INFORMATION TO THE PRESS. THEY ALSO NOTE THIS ISN’T THE FIRST TIME THEY’VE HAD TO INVESTIGATE COMEY’S INABILITY TO FOLLOW POLICIES AND PROCEDURES. THEY POINT TO THE FACT THAT THEY HAD PREVIOUSLY INVESTIGATED HIM. AND PREVIOUSLY CRITICIZED THE WAY HE HANDLED THE CLINTON EMAIL INVESTIGATION. THE FACT THAT AT THE END OF THAT, OMAR, AS YOU MAY REMEMBER, HE CAME OUT AND HELD A PRESS CONFERENCE AND THAT’S JUST NOT HOW
