IT'S ORLANDO'S TURN FOR DEAD BODIES

If you didn't get your fill of dead bodies at Tampa's Museum of Science and Industry, head to Orlando, where a similar exhibit is drawing crowds at the Orlando Science Center. "People are just dying to get in here," Orange County Mayor Rich Crotty said jokingly to the Orlando Sentinel during a VIP reception Monday. "Our Body: The Universe Within" has been open a month, tripling the science center's attendance. Crotty's wife, Pam, drove to Tampa for last year's "Bodies … The Exhibition'' at MOSI, but it was so crowded she didn't get in. The 20 bodies and 200 anatomical displays will be there through July.

Hurricane Center has new leader in mind

The National Hurricane Center in Miami is expected to get a new director today to replace Max Mayfield, and the leading candidate is Bill Proenza, a veteran forecaster and Weather Service administrator, the Miami Herald reports. Proenza is the director of the Southern Region of the National Weather Service in Fort Worth, Texas, where he manages nearly 1,000 forecasters and other employees in 32 offices in 10 states, including Florida.
