3:21 am
the eye is about 30 miles across, which is pretty big. on the radar we can see it's closing in which means the storm is getting stronger. >> reporter: gustov has perplexed forecasters, losing and regaining strength several times on its way up from the caribbean. >> we go through periods of weakening and strengthening. almost like they're breathing in a sense. >> reporter: if the speed was fluctuating, the size of the storm stayed the same, 250 miles across. >> so it's a large beast that can affect a huge area. >> so there you have it with gustov. in total, an estimated 153 deaths had been attributed to gustov. but as we take a look at the power and the size of hurricane florence, you know, there is a possibility that this storm could sadly end up with a lot of people being dead in the next few days. >> and so much damage also done to that area, but hurricanes are no joke. heed the warnings.
3:22 am
>> that, indeed. luckily a lot of people are doing so. we're going to keep an eye on that. but in the meantime, we'll mix it up. that. but, in the meantime, we'll mix it up.

3:27 am
>> yeah, the organization common sense media released a research report saying it aims to paint a picture of the role that social media plays in teens' lives. so teens' social media use has increased by 36% since 2012. their favorite apps, well, this is a tough one. >> uh-huh. >> what would you say are the favorite apps? >> snapchat. >> you got it. and instagram. so -- >> it's almost finished. >> is it melting? wait, you didn't have that. you did not drink all of that. >> i'm telling you, you guys say i don't drink anything. it is all gone. all right. cincinnati sign. take a look here. the ohio department of transportation said it has some explaining to do. it misspelled the name of cincinnati, made it cinicinnati, i guess. this is on the interstate ramp of 71 in columbus just about an hour up the road from cincinnati. it will take awhile to fix that.
