  • Thank you for downloading, streaming or just plain watching CNN 10. I`m Carl Azuz explaining

  • world news from the CNN

  • Center. First today, get away from the coast. That`s what a Americans in the U.S. Southeast

  • are being told as a monster storm brews in the Atlantic

  • Ocean. It`s name is Hurricane Florence. It`s already triggered mandatory evacuation orders

  • for more than 1 million people in the states of North

  • Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia. And Florence is uniquely dangerous. For one thing

  • it`s powerful. Its wind speeds hovered around 140 miles per

  • hour Tuesday.

  • That makes Florence a Category 4 hurricane. That makes Florence strong enough to blow

  • the roofs off houses, knock down walls, snap most trees,

  • take out power. The area it hits could be uninhabitable for months. For another it`s

  • storm surge could be catastrophic. This is the abnormal rise

  • in sea levels as a hurricane blows water ashore. A CNN meteorologist says Hurricane Florence

  • could bring a 20 foot storm surge. That would make the

  • tide 20 feet higher than it normally is as Florence blows in.

  • The National Hurricane Center says anything more than a 12 foot storm surge is life threatening.

  • Third, scientists tracking this storm predict it will

  • slow down after it makes landfall. That`s a major problem as far as flooding is concerned.

  • Last years Hurricane Harvey was a slow moving

  • storm. It poured rain on Houston, Texas for more than a week and that caused scenes like

  • this. Predicting exactly what storms like Florence will

  • do is still like predicting the weather. There`s uncertainty about it. This hurricane`s wind

  • speeds fluctuated Tuesday. Forecasters didn`t agree

  • on whether it would still be a Category 4 storm at landfall, if it would get stronger

  • or weaker before it blows ashore. But here`s how things

  • looked yesterday afternoon.

  • We now have Hurricane Watches along the coastal region of South Carolina all the way up to

  • the border of Virginia and same goes

  • for Storm Surge Watches that have been issued across the region but everything else remains

  • the same. Still a Category 4, still 140 mile per

  • hour sustained winds and the storm still pushes off to north and west northwest that are 15

  • miles per hour. But here we go with this and we know

  • water temperatures from here forward will just continue to get warmer. You need water

  • temps of 82 degrees Fahrenheit to maintain a tropical system.

  • We`ll go to about 85 eventually to about 88 before it makes landfall. That`s why there

  • is that outside shot of this potentially even

  • strengthening further up to a Category 5 as it approaches land. But, you take a look.

  • That rapid intensification in place, 36 hour period from a

  • Cat 1 to Category 4, remarkable system. And of course, we`ve looked very carefully at

  • where it`s going to end up and consistency has been all the

  • name of the game with this as far as pinpointing South Carolina on into North Carolina even

  • including portions of Virginia. At this point, the

  • latest models bring this in sometime into the overnight hours now of Thursday and potentially

  • early Friday morning coming in as a Category 4,

  • somewhere around the costal regions of North Carolina from Wilmington up towards Cape Hatteras.

  • The spaghetti model guidance kind of shows the concentration of which right around areas

  • around Wilmington as the best likelihood for landfall and

  • Hatteras certainly in line as well. And when you take a look at the comparison of the most

  • reliable models we typically go to the American and

  • European, American in red. European coming in in blue. Very similar as far as where they`re

  • lined up here going into the overnight hours of

  • Thursday. But notice, once they make landfall both models kind of want to have it hover

  • around for maybe a day or potentially more. That`s what

  • really becomes a danger in scenario here with potential rainfall amounts as much as 20 or

  • more inches on some of these costal communities.

  • On the 17th Anniversary of the September 11th, 2001 terrorist attacks on the U.S., memorial

  • services were held across the country

  • yesterday. Starting at 8:30 a.m. at the 9/11 Memorial in New York City a ceremony including

  • a moment of silence was held in remembrance of the

  • victims. Their names were read aloud and church bells rang throughout the city. At 8:45 a.m.,

  • at the Pentagon, U.S. Vice-President Mike Pence and

  • Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis attended a ceremonial wreath laying and a reading of

  • the victims names there.

  • And at 9:45 a.m. in Shanksville, Pennsylvania, U.S. President Donald Trump and First Lady

  • Melania Trump paid tribute to the victims of United Airlines

  • Flight 93. The President called the field where terrorists crashed the plane a monument

  • to American defiance and he called the new Tower of Voices

  • Memorial a message that America would never submit to tyranny.

  • 10 Second Trivia. Which of these is not a requirement for a celestial body to be considered

  • a planet? Must orbit the sun, must clear its path of

  • orbit, must have a moon or must be round. A planet does not need a moon to meet the

  • International Astronomical Unions definition of a planet.

  • But as option B indicated, it does have to clear the neighborhood in its path of orbit.

  • Meaning knock other space rocks out of the way if necessary

  • and that`s why the International Astronomical Union announced in 2006 that Pluto was no

  • longer a planet. The Union said it was just too small to

  • clear its path. But that decision caused a lot of controversy and not just among those

  • who were taught there were nine planets in our solar system.

  • New research published in the scientific journal Icarus argues that Pluto should be reinstated

  • to planetary status. A University of Central Florida

  • scientist says that, nobody actually uses the path clearing requirement in their research.

  • He says his team looked at two centuries worth of materials and found only one study from

  • the early 1800`s that used the path clearing requirement.

  • He adds that the way a celestial body is formed and whether it`s big enough to have a spherical

  • shape are more important factors for its

  • classification. The IAU says it hasn`t received any formal requests to reevaluate Pluto but

  • that it`s good to debate these topics.

  • Up next, a report on the CNN Hero. In the mid-1990`s Alyssa Montantee (ph) found out

  • about a boy in Southeast Europe who lost three of his limbs to a

  • land mine. Within 24 hours, Montantee (ph) had contacted an airline, a hospital and a

  • prosthetic company to help him. Since then, her non-profit

  • group, The Global Medical Relief Fund has helped more than 300 children from 46 countries.

  • I help children one at a time you could say. When I first started this 20 years ago, I

  • didn`t have a clue. I was really

  • struggling with panic attacks and I really didn`t know what was happening with me but

  • there was something inside me that drove me to do this. We

  • bring children that have no resources from all these different countries. They receive

  • medical care. The children that we help have been injured

  • through war and natural disasters, birth defects and injuries.

  • We write the Visa and then we fly them here to JFK in New York. We follow up until they`re

  • 21 years old. So they come back every year. So, Arush

  • (ph), her mother had sent me an email and said that her daughter was born without legs

  • and an arm and could we help? I immediately knew we could.

  • We`re going to do both feet and both arms.

  • We partner with the Shriner`s Children Hospital who provide all the prosthetics, surgery,

  • rehabilitation. We`re empowering them

  • because we`re giving them back what they lost. A chance to stand on their own and write and

  • go to school and to contribute to society. The Dare to

  • Dream House is their home away from home. It`s six houses away from my house but it

  • has to be because the charity is not 9 to 5, it`s 24/7.

  • What`s so magical about the house is that you have all these families. They come from

  • different corners of the world and they all heal together,

  • laugh together. They don`t speak the same language but love is universal. See where

  • those buildings are there. That`s Brooklyn. By helping other

  • people, you`re healing yourself. I know I`m making such a difference. And that has made

  • me feel a purpose.

  • At some point, we`ve all wondered what it would be like to be a gigantic insect or not.

  • But hey, here`s your chance to find out. It`s

  • called "The Mantis". It was made by a British engineer who`s also worked on special effects

  • for movies. It weighs almost 4,000 pounds. It stands

  • over 9 feet tall and 16 feet wide and it`s the Guinness World Record holder for largest

  • rideable hexapod robot. There can`t be a lot of competition.

  • Maybe he "thoraxed" around first "pestering" his friends to find out what is "abdoment"

  • by the category. And then set his compound eyes on something

  • that would net a lot of "antention". Or maybe he just "winged" it by watching a "hexapod"

  • cast. Either way, we thank you watching our pod cast

  • of CNN 10 and hope you`ll "buzz" back our way tomorrow. I`m Carl Azuz.
