There’s a new tropical system out there, expected to reach hurricane status sometime today. Irma is out in the Atlantic and for her projected path just click here. And the call has gone out for blood donations for the victims of Hurricane Harvey. You can find the closest donor location here, and don’t forget to log on to make a monetary donation to hurricane relief.

 

Dramatic video from the Pasco County Sheriff’s office shows just how carefully we need to pay attention on the road for stopped vehicles. Deputies taking care of a minor crash at 52 and Hayes Rd were injured when another crash happened right next to them. Deputy Peter Knorr hurt his hand and will be okay.

 

The Houston Astros have made Tropicana Field their temporary home thanks to Harvey. They wind up a three game stand against the Texas Rangers tonight. All proceeds from ticket sales, concessions and parking will go toward disaster relief. The death toll is at 31 and as flood waters recede that number is expected to rise.

 

For the second year in a row survey says Florida has the worst drivers in the nation. SmartAsset looks at the number of DUI’s, tickets and the number of people who dies in crashes. Mississippi comes in second.
