Chicago, IL (PRWEB) August 25, 2005
Coverage teams from HurricaneNow.com are deploying to Florida for the expected development of hurricane Katrina. Led by former CNN hurricane correspondent Jeff Flock, teams will prepare for what could be multiple landfalls and a "live chase" across the state that was decimated by four hurricanes last year. "It's headed for a huge population center," said Flock. "Just as we did with hurricane Dennis, we'll transmit live, streaming reports as the storm moves across Florida."
HurricaneNow features veteran hurricane journalists, photographers and researchers who provide unique live reports, analysis and data from the scene of this season's land falling US hurricanes.
"During hurricane Dennis we had a million hits," said veteran hurricane photographer Tom Casale, who is managing HurricaneNow's mission control. "And the majority of our subscribers are in Florida.
HurricaneNow.COM uses a unique combination of the latest technologies to bring subscribers live, streaming reports from the epicenter of the storm. Subscribers also chat live with teams in the field and receive exclusive e-mails charting the storm's progress and HurricaneNow's mission.
"Our team members were in the eye of each of the major hurricanes that hit Florida last year," said former TV news network editor Rob Hess who helps manage the site's editorial content. With 12 named storms so far, "...it has already been an extraordinary year and the worst is yet to come."
