  • Hi on Coral is a welcome to this presidential election edition of CNN.

  • 10.

  • What we know what We don't know what we expect in the days ahead.

  • We'll start with what we know.

  • It's close.

  • No landslides here in the presidential race.

  • When we assembled this show in the overnight hours, a winner had not been declared yet.

  • The election results hinged on 10 states Alaska, Arizona, Georgia, Hawaii, Maine, Michigan, Nevada, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.

  • In the popular vote, Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden was leading Republican incumbent President Donald Trump.

  • But it's the electoral vote that counts the magic number of 270 of those that determine the presidency.

  • And those results came down to the States.

  • I mentioned they were still unknown.

  • Tuesday night at 12:42 a.m. Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden addressed supporters at a driving event in Wilmington, Delaware.

  • Good evening.

  • Your patience is commendable.

  • We knew this was gonna go along, but who knew?

  • We're gonna go into maybe tomorrow morning, maybe even longer.

  • But look, we feel good about where we are.

  • We really dio I'm here to tell you tonight we believe we're on track to win this election.

  • Yes, we knew because of the unprecedented early vote in the mail and vote, there's gonna take a while.

  • We're gonna have to be patient until the hard work of talent votes is finished and it ain't over until every vote is counted.

  • Every ballot is counted.

  • At 2:22 a.m. Republican incumbent President Donald Trump addressed supporters at the White House in Washington D.

  • C.

  • I want to thank the American people for their tremendous support.

  • Millions and millions of people voted for us tonight.

  • And, uh, Avery, sad group of people, is trying to disenfranchise that group of people.

  • We were getting ready to win this election.

  • Frankly, we did win this election on, So our goal now is to ensure the integrity for the good of this nation.

  • This is a very big moment.

  • This is a major fraud in our nation.

  • We want the law to be used in a proper manner.

  • So we'll be going to the U.

  • S.

  • Supreme Court.

  • We want all voting to stop.

  • We don't want them to find any ballots at four oclock in the morning and add them to the list.

  • OK, It's a very sad.

  • It's a very sad moment to me.

  • There's a very sad moment and we will win this.

  • And ASU faras I'm concerned we already have one, so I just want to thank the oh So legal challenges to election results are expected.

  • How much will mail in ballots factor in what will be the new makeup of the Senate and House of Representatives?

  • These air also questions to be answered in the days ahead.

  • As another CNN anchor put it.

  • This is not a 90 minute thriller.

  • It's like a 10 part miniseries.

  • All of this was constantly being updated.

  • As we put this show together late last night and CNN dot com, we'll have the latest news and results concerning the 2020 U.

  • S.

  • Presidential election.

  • Electoral College.

  • It's simpler than regular college.

  • It's actually the name of a group of people who choose the US president.

  • Why them, and not just citizens through a popular vote?

  • Well, some of the founding fathers weren't completely comfortable with the direct election by the people they wanted to buffer or limit that they didn't think the average American was really in tune with politics.

  • Electors on the other hand are all over him.

  • I need your vote.

  • Here's how the system works.

  • Each state gets a certain number of electoral votes.

  • The more people who live in a state, the more electoral votes it gets.

  • Take California most populous state in the nation.

  • 55 electoral votes.

  • South Dakota freak.

  • Not many, but it doesn't have nearly as many residents as the Golden State.

  • Every statement.

  • Maine and Nebraska has a winner take all election system.

  • That means whoever wins the state's popular vote wins all of its electoral votes.

  • What kinds of numbers are we talking?

  • Well, there are 538 electors in the Electoral College, so you need just over half of them 270 to win the election.

  • But you can't just win the top five states with the most electoral votes in a close contest between two candidates, every electoral vote counts, and here's where it gets tricky.

  • Theological college is supposed to reflect what most Americans want, but it is possible for a candidate toe win the popular vote and lose the Electoral College and therefore the election.

  • Former Vice President Al Gore, for example, won the popular vote in 2000 but lost the Electoral College and the election.

  • Same thing happened in 18 76 to Samuel J.

  • Tilden and 18 88 to Grover Cleveland.

  • Did some folks get mad at the college?

  • Uh huh.

  • But despite hundreds of proposals to change that or get rid of it, it hasn't happened in part because it allows smaller states to still have some power in an election and because it would take changing the U.

  • S.

  • Constitution.

  • Okay, Another story making headlines today.

  • Hurricane ADA.

  • A very powerful Category four storm made landfall in the Central American nation of Nicaragua on Tuesday.

  • This is what it looked like.

  • He had approached the coast.

  • Hurricane Ada was a relatively slow moving storm that could bring the worst flooding Nicaragua had seen since Hurricane Mitch struck there in 1998.

  • The U.

  • S National Hurricane Center says deadly conditions could remain in the region for days because eight is rains could cause landslides, river flooding and flash flooding, which can occur within a few hours of heavy rainfall.

  • Nicaragua is the poorest nation in Central America, according to the U.

  • S.

  • Central Intelligence Agency.

  • It estimates almost 30% of Nicaraguans live below the poverty line.

  • A Catholic priest who lives in the coastal city of Puerto CA basis says some houses there are made of wood and adobe, a type of clay, he told the Reuters news agency.

  • That's the city's main weakness.

  • Even before Hurricane Ada hit, rubes were reportedly being ripped off homes.

  • Puerto Cabezas had lost power and its storm shelters were filled up.

  • Besides its wind speeds of around 145 MPH, the storm was predicted to bring a major storm surge a rise in sea water levels blown ashore by a hurricane.

  • Forecasters said they could be as much as 21 ft higher than the normal tide, so their effects could be catastrophic for coastal Nicaragua and neighboring Honduras.

  • Hurricane Ada is the 28th named storm of this year's Atlantic hurricane season.

  • That ties the record set in 2005, whether agencies counted 27 storms that year.

  • But the National Hurricane Center decided that after the 2005 season was over, there was a 28th storm that should have been named but wasn't so.

  • This officially ties the 28 storms named in 2005 12th trivia.

  • Which of these World Heritage sites was built?

  • The most recently?

  • It's a prototype, the fifth generation air car designed by a professor in Slovakia.

  • But it has completed its made in flight, reaching an altitude of 1500 ft.

  • The price we don't know yet.

  • But based on what we've seen from other flying car prototypes, they're much more than the average house.

  • And it's hard to scale something so upscale to bring the car to market.

  • Then the market, the car You hope it takes off in the year and it sails.

  • If it ain't clear for takeoff, you won't get very far if it gets off the ground up and down around town.

  • It's a pretty far away to elevate a commute.

  • A runway.

  • Runaway success will be found for the buyer.

  • With the loot and the lofty attitude, We are all out of gas.
