Hurricane Jeanne bearing down on South Florida

An almost unprecendented fourth hurricane is bearing down on Florida.

Hurricane Jeanne is set to make landfall on the east coast of Florida on Sunday morning, bringing high winds and heavy rain to an area already hurting behind three previous tropical systems this season.

Evacuations are being recommended up and down the east coast of Florida, and cancellations abound. One event that has not been cancelled -- at least as of yet -- is Sunday's scheduled matchup of the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Miami Dolphins, set for 1PM Sunday at Miami's Pro Player Stadium. The NFL has ruled out playing on Saturday, but with the storm bearing down, playing on Monday or Tuesday is not out of the question. The League will likely make a final decision sometime tomorrow.

The Dolphins' season opener was moved from a Sunday to a Saturday in advance of Hurricane Frances less than a month ago.

A number of stations are streaming live coverage of the storm: Miami's WFOR-TV/DT Miami (WMP) and WSVN-TV/DT (WMP) have already started coverage; Miami stations WTVJ and WPLG will begin streaming tomorrow, as will Orlando's WESH & WKMG.

Other television stations in the target zone will stream live coverage as well. (RP) is set to begin streaming their live coverage tonight at 8PM.

Good news for the Dolphins who could easily go 3-13 this season.

Maybe these hurricanes have something to do with our relationship with Israel:
