Hurricane Watch Net to Activate as Gustav Threatens Hispaniola:

08/26/2008 The Hurricane Watch Net (HWN) will activate Tuesday, August 26 at 0800 EDT/1200Z on 14.325 MHz as Hurricane Gustav approaches Hispaniola. We will be disseminating the latest weather bulletins from the National Hurricane Center and passing real time reports from the affected area to WX4NHC at the Center to assist forecasters in their tasks. Plans are to remain active until the band goes out. Operations on Wednesday and beyond will depend on Gustav’s status and path, but will be published on our Web site. HWN net intentions, the latest on Gustav and other weather information is always on the site. -- Dave Lefavour, W7GOX, Manager, Hurricane Watch Net
