Television monitors show maps generated by a new hurricane modeling program called HUGO at Coastal Carolina University in Conway, S.C., on Thursday, Aug. 1, 2013. Scientists at the university who developed the model say it will reduce the uncertainty in forecasts of just where a hurricane will make landfall. They hope it is one day used by the National Hurricane Center. Hurricane Center review of such models takes a number of years.
