VoIP Hurricane Net Activation for Hurricane Larry Secured at 230 AM EDT – Saturday 9/11/21 – VoIP Hurricane Prep Net On for Tonight – Latest Tropical Updates
Hello to all…
The VoIP Hurricane Net Activation for Hurricane Larry was secured at 230 AM EDT – Saturday 9/11/21 supporting both WX4NHC, the Amateur Radio station at the National Hurricane Center in Miami Florida and the Canadian Hurricane Centre in Halifax Nova Scotia Canada. Through the exemplary efforts of VO1IV-Aaron Abbott and a number of Amateur Radio Operators across Newfoundland Canada and one Amateur Operator in Ontario who relayed a report from a non-Amateur Radio CANWARN Spotter in St Johns Newfoundland, reports of damage to trees, power lines, power outages including roof damage to a school and a home were relayed off from Amateurs in the region. Additional information was captured via public safety feeds from the St Johns and Conception Bay areas of Newfoundland Canada as well as online weather stations including one report from Cape St Mary Lighthouse which was used in the Friday Evening 1100 PM EDT National Hurricane Center Advisory crediting Amateur Radio. The complete set of reports can be seen on the following link:
We are very grateful to VO1IV-Aaron and all Amateurs who supported the respective hurricane centers and our net. We wish them well in their storm recovery efforts!
We will have our regular VoIP Hurricane Prep Net this Saturday Evening at 800 PM EDT. While there are no named systems in the Atlantic basin, there are several areas of disturbed weather and we will discuss them on tonight’s net. Thanks to all for their continued support of the VoIP Hurricane Net!
Director of Operations for VoIP Hurricane Net
