I tried to upload this video with two news clip last week, but the file seemed too big so I failed last time even it's only 1 minute and 40 seconds short. These two clips were from CNN and a Taiwanese news station before the hurricane. It's obvious that these two anchors had different attitude or tone to warn the residents. The right one (Taiwanese) is more casual while CNN side is more alert/cautious.

The above image is my result of CNN starting broadcast timeline. It took me a while to color the countries after getting the information. After this time line, I will upload another graph that's related to my point. The file can be downloaded here.

A brief graph can be downloaded here. For this week, I'll investigate more according to the filtered weather disaster. The research is a continuing process.

The fact sheet of Morakot

After I posted several news footage on Typhoon Morakot, I realized I did not introduce the basic info of this typhoon/ hurricane and why it is my starting point of my project. The following is the brief fact sheet I made to formally "introduce" the typhoon. I finished the past Monday before individual meeting but did not get a chance to post. 

I'll be posting more about my research tomorrow.
