4:16 am
many power outages, 140,000 people without power and flying debris, there is the scene in juno beach, and that storm is packing power and people are listening to advice sue and so many of them right now are in shelters. >> yeah, it is a good thing. the storm has not made technical land fall but it is here and it is just parallel as we predict to the east coast of florida. here's 4:00 a.m. advisory, national hurricane center is issuing hourly advisory on this storm, it the is 120 miles an hour wind which makes it a category three and moving toward the northwest at the a rate of about 14 miles an hour, northwest means toward the coast. we look at project path and we see it coming really close but what we tend to do is look at middle and we see this projection with you look at the cone of uncertainty it could jog further out to sea and further inland and we could still easily have land
4:17 am
fall and stays that close, through the coast of georgia, south carolina and around in that circle we were telling you about, and possibly middle of next week coming back to florida but as a much weaker storm with much lower wind, and much less rain. but, still, there is the rain as it moves northward and we will see it continuing with very heavy rains in georgia, in south carolina effects of this storm very, very great with the rain, storm surge and wind. wind gusts right now fort pierce 61 miles an hour, 69 miles an hour in melbourne, so just under hurricane strength. so much to show but that storm lets talk about our seven day forecast. today should be mostly sunny and nice, probably some clouds by end of the day with 76 degrees. seventy tomorrow with clouds and showers around, and clouds to sunshine on sunday, and monday, columbus day we have mostly sunny skies but it is a cooler trend as we head into

4:19 am
florida, you make sure you check with the airline because airlines have been rerouting planes say for example from jfk that would make a stop in the carolinas or florida, and then go out west, to either say austin, out to l.a., they are avoid ago this whole east coast trip part. so check with the airline no math ther what and even once this storm does move out to sea and they open up the ticket counters there is no planes down in the path of the hurricane. all of the airlines moved them all out. so there will be a lot of restaging they like to call that even when we do get back up and running. bucks county community college set for 11:00 o'clock today, motorcade madness for the gang in new town impacting traffic on i-95 ape route 413. market perhaps forward ape broad street subway is using shuttle buses until 5:00 o'clock this morning. amtrak has suspended service all along the south east coast
