Flhurricane.com needs more bandwidth, and infrastructure and other upgrades to maintain itself. This can get very expensive during the active season, so I'm requesting donations at the moment. (The service will remain free and mostly adless as long as possible) All donations will go straight to hardware upgrades or bandwidth costs for flhurricane.com to ensure downtime is minimal.
Average cost per month ranges from $100 in the off season to well over $2000 during peak events (Such as a major hurricane US landfall event).
