THIS IS A RUSH TRANSCRIPT. THIS COPY MAY NOT BE IN ITS FINAL FORM AND MAY BE UPDATED.

CARL AZUZ, CNN 10 ANCHOR: Once again the U.S. state of Louisiana is under a state of emergency. Hurricane Delta is our first subject this Friday on CNN 10. I'm Carl Azuz. This would be the fourth named storm to strike Louisiana in a single Atlantic Hurricane season and that hasn't happened since record keeping began in 1851 but let's back up a moment. When we put this show together, it hadn't happened yet. Hurricane Delta was whirling in the Gulf after making landfall on Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula on Wednesday morning. It was a Category 2 storm when it hit between the resort towns of Cancun and Playa del Carmen.

That was significantly weaker than forecasters had predicted it would be and while there was some damage, early news reports indicated that it didn't appear to be major and thankfully no deaths were reported. After crossing the Yucatan, Hurricane Delta had weakened to Category 1 status with wind speeds of around 90 miles per hour. But it regained strength over the Gulf and meteorologists expected the storm to hit Louisiana on Friday or Saturday with Category 2 force. Winds speeds of between 96 and 110 miles per hour and a storm surge of ocean water as high as 11 feet over normal tide levels. That would be wherever Delta makes landfall.

There are no good populated areas for a hurricane to that. But the Louisiana coast is especially vulnerable because that's where Hurricane Laura made landfall in August. Residents there are still dealing with the damage from that Category 4 hurricane which killed 15 people and damaged or destroyed 45,000 homes. CNN Meteorologist Chad Myers says the lose debris that's still scattered from Laura could cause more damage when Hurricane Delta hits. We're going to bring him in now to explain why forecasts differ in terms of where exactly hurricanes will strike.

CHAD MYERS, CNN METEOROLOGIST: Well you hear us talk a lot about the models. The European versus the American and how are they different?

We're trying to model an atmosphere that has an infinite number of layers from where we live to the top of the atmosphere is not nine, 12, 13 different layers. It's an infinite number but you can't put infinity into a computer and expect an answer because it will just hang up and keep running. The difference between the two models is trying to get a model run that is accurate and timely.

Timely meaning, we can't have a perfect forecast for a two day snowstorm but it might take 24 hours' worth of running the computer to get there.

So, is a two forecast that's only good for one day, is that worth it? No. We try to get it to run in four hours or less. Now the European model does take longer to run. There's more data in the European model and so therefore it can be slightly more accurate. But the American model is pretty close.

AZUZ: Originally, three presidential debates were planned between incumbent Republican President Donald Trump and Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, but a lot of question marks popped up yesterday concerning the second debate. It was originally set for October 15th in Miami, Florida but yesterday about a week after President Trump was diagnosed with corona virus. The Commission on Presidential Debates said the October 15th event would be virtual. The Biden campaign agreed to that. The Trump campaign did not.

The president said, he wouldn't hold a debate virtually. If the commission postpones next week's event, both campaigns have agreed to the debate on October 22nd. But the Biden camp wants that to be the last one while the Trump camp wants that, and a third debate rescheduled for the 29th. So less than a month before the election, the debate schedule is up in the air.

10 Second Trivia. What are the names of the two full moons that occur this month? Harvest and Hunters, Wolf and Harvest, Corn and Buck, or Wolf and Blood. October 2020 sees both a harvest moon and a hunter's moon.

The harvest moon is the full moon that occurs closest to the autumnal equinox. This year's equinox was on September 22nd. The closest full moon to that was right at the beginning of October. But there's another full moon coming up later this month, the hunter's moon named for when people hunted meat to use in the winter. And as CNN 10 Contributor Tyler Mauldin reports, that's not the only nickname for the second full moon this moon.

Tyler.

TYLER MAULDIN, CNN CONTRIBUTOR: Carl, a full moon will occur on Halloween this year making the night extra spooky for trick-or-treaters. Can you think of anything more 2020? This will be the second full moon to occur this month. This rare occurrence of having two full moons in one months, only happens about every two to three years on average. The reason, every month features a full moon yet the lunar cycle and our calendars aren't perfectly synchronized. Every few years, the stars align, and we get two in one month.

This is the modern definition of a blue moon. Spoiler alert though, it's in name only. The moon won't actually be the color blue. If you've seen the images floating around on social media of a moon that is blue, it's probably been filtered. The last time we had a blue moon was back in March of 2018. The next one will occur in about three years from now in August 2023. Oh, and it's been quite a while since we last had a full moon on Halloween for all U.S. time zones. You'll have to go all the way back to 1944 for that. So Carl, go ahead, mark your calendar and get your camera ready. It should make for a really "bootiful" but eerie once in a blue moon Halloween night.

AZUZ: We have report on news writing. It's new. You can find it online. I think it's effective. That's not the way to tell a story. Thankfully we're providing some tips on more effective news writing. It's part of our partnership with AT&T's Youth Voice Collective. We've been assembling a series of special editions featuring this guy who writes and anchors CNN 10, plus student questions about journalism. The newest video is available right now. You can find it at You Tube.com/CNN10 and at CNN10.com A badger, some snake, bird, guinea pigs and a pony, these are some of the animals that roamed around the White House during the presidency of Theodore Roosevelt and they weren't pets. President Roosevelt really liked animals. Now though, some White House residents of the uninvited variety are reeking havoc or at least really distracting some reporters.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

JEANNE MOOS, CNN CORRESPONDENT: Raccoons. There's an invasion crawling around the media cables on the White House lawns. Sniffing at bags of gear.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Is there food in there?

MOOS: Making a beeline for CNN's Joe Johns in the middle of a live shot.

JOE JOHNS, CNN CORRESPONDENT: Get. There he is. Roar. Now no events on the president's schedule today and --

MOOS: Maybe you think Joe has seen too many movie raccoons.

JOHNS: Someone need a hug?

MOOS: You too might lob a footstool just to scare it.

JOHNS: No. No raccoons were harmed in this exercise.

MOOS: If this was your second run in with a raccoon. Just a week before, as Joe was about to go live.

JOHNS: I felt something on my leg and the first thing I thought was it was a camera man from another network. And I looked down and it's a raccoon that had just grabbed my leg.

MOOS: Law enforcement is on the hunt. Spotlighting them with their flashlights. Throwing some sort of sandbag, which the raccoon actually tried to drag away. One ended up in a Secret Service security shack. Dogs have joined the search. Even broomsticks have been deployed but like in the movie "The Nut Job".

(INAUDIBLE)

MOOS: The raccoons keep coming.

JOHNS: Is he still there? Can somebody chase him away?

MOOS: Jeanne Moos, CNN.

AZUZ: What a ring tale to tell. Of course, they might be looking to "coatease" the reporters and they did "kink chews" kind of a dangerous place. So they can't "alinger" too long because even with their "masks" on, they're "basarisking" being identified by the Secret Service. Fridays are awesome.
