CNN meteorologist Tom Sater shares the forecast and the threat of storm surge. #CNN #News


  1. Expert: β€œYou’re talking about 15 inches of rain and storm surge – no infrastructure is built for that”

    Me: What about Japan? 🀣🀣🀣

  2. Praying for all in Ian’s path. As a former FL resident and still living in a hurricane prone zone, I understand how stressful this is. Know ya’ll know how to prepare or evacuate if need be. If you’re “riding it out” by choice or circumstances, please consider writing your name and an emergency contact number with a sharpie on your arm. Even in just an injury situation this could be of great help. May God be with you, protect you and shelter you and yours in the storm. God bless.

    1. Riding it out is quite the experience, from getting slapped by outbands, to the climax, if you ain’t wet at the end, you didn’t ride it out right.

  3. As a retired airline Capt. (B747) who watched the weather closely his entire career, this is possibly THE BEST presentation of weather I personally have ever seen on a TV.

    1. @WE THE PEOPLE πŸ™Œ you’ll have a better life if you stop judging things by where they come from and not what they say.

    1. Exodus 20:20 (KJV) And Moses said unto the people, Fear not: for God is come to prove you, and that his fear may be before your faces, that ye sin not.

    1. Thank you sir, God will take care of his own! It’s really supposed to be only bad on the West Coast by Tampa but you never know, that’s why we prepare and that’s why we say our prayers!

    2. There is no Iron Age deity in the clouds that will do a thing to help people. As Nietzsche put a finer point on it, people can only help themselves.

    1. Don’t be scared. I’m standing looking at the hurricane right now. Doesn’t look so tough. If I blow really hard I’m pretty sure I can make it spin back off into the ocean. Lol.

  4. Please stay safe in Florida everyone! Heed the calls for mandatory evacuation! Thankfully Fiona was easy on us in our community, but other Atlantic Canadians suffered major losses! Sad! Ian is predicted to be catastrophic! Listen to authorities and be safe! Love and prayers from Canada β€οΈπŸ™πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦

  5. I have never heard such a clear but technical description of what a hurricane is doing in my life. Great meteorologist. That was my dream job when I was younger. Now I work in IT, which I also love, but man I really dig meteorology, and I would say that this guy Tom Sater has that same love and excitement about it.

  6. I rode through Hurricane Andrew as my two story house in Miami was turned into a one story house. Everyone needs to take this storm seriously. There were over 190 large tornadoes inside the hurricane.

  7. Why is it every time a storm happens you see people bagging sand bags in such an incredibly slow pace. Isn’t there a machine that can do this?

    1. They would need thousands of those machines with an immediately-ready supply of sand. I think changing building codes and restricting population growth would really be a great idea right about now. This won’t end. Same with the water problems in places like Vegas and Phoenix. They need to start thinking about packing up.

    2. The material they are made from disintegrates after a few months in the sun.

      And they weigh 50 to 100 lbs each!

      There are machines, not cheap, but agencies that use them need to quickly build walls of bags stretching along levees and such.

      Many, many good videos on YouTube related to filling and stacking sandbags by ordinary citizen property owners.

      Search for β€˜stacking sandbags’

    3. The news pays them to do that cause it causes more drama then some people sitting on their couches watching Netflix while scratching their privates. Lol

  8. I love how we even turn natural disasters as a vehicle to push our political agenda….gives me real hope about the future of America

  9. I’m in central Florida and this still concerns me. Tampa, Sarasota and Ft Meyers doesn’t look good. I know people with businesses and even my ex wife and her boy toy lives in st Pete. I hope they all find safety.

  10. We live in a flood area in South Tampa and were ordered to leave yesterday. We couldn’t so we left this morning, taking video of a house we didn’t think we would see again, storm surge of 15-20 feet, winds over 150 miles an hour. Our ground floor is 11 feet above sea level, so we were toast and left, just like 2004 with Charlie and 2017 with Irma. Now we watch as our neighbors to the south are wearing the bullseye, just like Charlie in 2004! Will it ever stop? I don’t think so! Stay safe!

  11. Please everyone check on your elderly neighbors, disabled and people who don’t have vehicles to leave…please, think of each other….you are in this all together…think how you would feel if it was you and your family and have no way to get out to safety….to all of you our prayers and thoughts are with you…stay safe and help each other out…may God watch over and protect each one of you…don’t forget about the animals, dogs, cats etc
