Networks cover approaching Irma on evening newscasts

‘NBC Nightly News’

Holt was then joined in studio by Al Roker. The pair stood in the video wall alcove, with a large weather map fed to the center panel, while the camera left panel showed current stats and the camera right one showed additional imagery.
