Tropical Storm Gordon

We are currently being impacted by Tropical Storm Gordon.

Current Satellite from the Hurricane Center (16:47 local time).

We are on the East edge of the storm, we are in Brevard County,  and will be getting those outer and first inner bands of this storm). Thankfully it will not be a direct hit for us.  Currently, we are overcast with scattered downpours and a light breeze. We have our phones charging, as well as the three handheld transmitters for the Amateur Radio Service, on the 2M/70cm bands.  Power banks are charging as well.  Though I really don’t see much for my area happening.  Gordon is supposed to track into the Gulf of Mexico and make landfall in Alabama.

Keep the Gulf Region in your prayers as experience our first real hit of the season.

Hurricane Irma…

 

Hurricane Irma may impact Florida, for those that follow this blog, I am in Brevard County, which is on the central East coast about 45 minutes south of Kennedy Space Center.  Have your Go Kits/Emergency bags packed.
Gov. Scott declared a State of Emergency for all Florida Counties, to quote him “Florida prepares for the worst but hopes for the best.”  We do not yet know for certain where Irma will track.  I ask your prayers for my state as well as for all of the Gulf States during this hurricane season, we are only at the halfway mark in the season.
