The Weather Channel Plans Continuous, Live Coverage of Tropical Storm Hermine

Network Deploys 10 Meteorologists and Reporters Across Florida and the Atlantic Coast for “Tracking Hermine: Live Coverage”

WHAT: In anticipation of Tropical Storm Hermine, The Weather Channel has positioned 10 meteorologists and reporters across Florida and the Atlantic Coast and will deliver continuous, live coverage to keep viewers informed, prepared and safe during this tropical event.
 
Florida Governor Rick Scott has declared a state of emergency in 42 Florida counties for the tropical storm. The National Hurricane Center has issued hurricane and tropical storm watches for Florida’s Gulf Coast. The tropical storm will also impact the Atlantic coast as it crosses Florida Friday and into the holiday weekend. 
 
In the studio, the network’s tropical experts and experience meteorologists will utilize three new, state-of-the-art augmented reality presentations to deliver and communicate the forecast in ways viewers have never been seen before.
 
These products use actual data transmitted from NOAA and the National Hurricane Center to clearly show people in the path of this storm the real dangers this hurricane presents.
 
WHEN: Tropical Storm Hermine will kick off with major wind and rain hammering parts of Florida on Thursday evening then move to the Atlantic Coast. Beginning Thursday morning at 5 a.m. ET, The Weather Channel will be live 24 hours a day through the weekend - totaling nearly 80 hours of continuous, live coverage. *Timing subject to change
