Princess Elsa Dress Is The Must Have Item

Remember when "Tickle Me Elmo" prompted people to trample each other? The newest "hot toy" is here-- and parents are forking over thousands of dollars for it. It all stems from Disney's Frozen, which is now officially the top-grossing animated film in box office history. Little girls are all asking for Princess Elsa's blue gown, and parents are scrambling to find it. This has led to people sewing their own versions of the dress and selling them on Etsy and eBay for a thousand dollars or more. One mom told TODAY, "I didn't realize this movie was going to be such an obsession. We saw this film and then out of nowhere, she wanted all this stuff and it was unavailable." One toy retail expert says, "You just can't get it. It's really sold out and it's probably the hottest thing out there right now."

New Hurricane Storm Surge Risk Maps

National forecasters will be introducing new maps for the Atlantic hurricane season this year that show not only the potential winds, but the potential for flooding from storm surges. The maps are being introduced because it was found that most Americans living on hurricane-vulnerable coastlines were paying too much attention to the wind strength predictions and not enough to storm surge in deciding whether to evacuate. Storm surge specialist Jamie Rhome of the National Hurricane Center said, "We are not a storm surge savvy nation. Yet storm surge is responsible for over half the deaths in hurricanes." The new maps, which will be issued 48 hours before landfall and updated every six hours, will enable people to see whether their property is likely to flood.
