Texas Tech Researchers Head For Hurricane Frances

While West Texans worry about rain, Floridians are fearing a hurricane.

The latest video from the International Space Station shows Hurricane Frances churning in the Caribbean. It is predicted to make landfall on the east coast this weekend and a team of Texas Tech researchers plans to be there to study it.

The team will use a 30-foot tower and radar to collect data. The information they collect could help engineers better design hurricane-resistant buildings and homes.
