A storm approaches West Palm Beach, Florida from the East after hurricane Frances hit yesterday

A storm approaches West Palm Beach, Florida from the East after hurricane Frances hit yesterday. Severe thunderstorms have been hitting South Florida all day today, September 6, 2004. Frances hit Florida for a second time on Monday, weaker but still bearing torrential rains and high winds as it crossed from the Gulf of Mexico onto the northwestern Panhandle. A huge and slow-moving storm, Frances lumbered into the state's east coast as a hurricane on Saturday and in two days cut power to more than 6 million people, disrupted telephone services, felled trees, damaged homes and smashed boats. State emergency management officials blamed three Florida deaths on Frances - a woman killed when a tree fell on her mobile home, a man killed when his car crashed on a rain-slick road and an 81-year-old man who suffered a fatal fall while walking his dog during the storm.

Optical telegraphy, 19th century Featured 6 Sep 2004 Print

Optical telegraphy, 19th century

Optical telegraphy. Historical artwork of 19th century French soldiers using a telescopic device for optical telegraphy (sending and receiving a message using light). One such early device was the Mangin projector, invented by a colonel Mangin in the early 1880s. Optical telegraphy systems used a telescopic device for observing a distant signal. The range of visibility varied from 20-100 kilometres, depending on the weather and if it was day or night. In the day, reflected sunlight was used to send the signal. The sequences of flashes was read out by the observer and recorded and decoded by the other soldiers. From La Telegraphie Historique (Alexis Belloc, 1888)
