The Weather Channel Shows The Warnings And Effects Of Hurricane Dorian In Mixed Reality
Hurricane Dorian is one of the biggest hurricanes of 2019 and it is heading to make impact with the US. It is a strong cell that will bring about strong winds and waves. And to show the sheer power of Hurricane Dorian, the Weather Channel has provided us with a mixed reality look.
Hosted by on-camera meteorologist Stephanie Abrams, the segment walks viewers through how to prepare for a hurricane – from 48 hours out, to just minutes prior to the storm’s landfall. Abrams, who is virtually placed in the front yard of a home, shares safety and evacuation tips as the hyper-realistic scene becomes more ominous with high winds, a dark sky, and heavy rain.
Through this immersive experience Abrams demonstrates how to prepare for Mother Nature’s fury in the day days, hours and minutes prior to landfall.
In this second video you will be able to see the storm surge after a hurricane makes landfall. The Weather Channel started using this technology last year to help the audience visualize just how rapid the storm moves and the power of mother nature.
