We're using a different host service to run the automated code, but this is only temporary.
We apologize for being down, but it was beyond our control.
Floyd stayed 110 miles east of our coast, and did not cause too much damage. The unprecidented evacuation (of which I was part of) was both an amazing and stressful scene. I'm sure the goverments will be learning important lessons from that. Damage was sporadic along East Central Florida, but beach erosion did happen. And of course, the unbelievable flooding in North Carolina on north will make Floyd a memorable storm for many.
Hurricane Gert is of no threat to the US, but Bermuda may have a run in with it.
There is a system in the Northwest Caribbean that's starting to cause rain here in Central Florida that some models form into a tropical depression. It will give us plenty of rain. We'll be watching that too.
