ARLB058 Hurricane Watch Net Activated as Dennis Approaches

The Hurricane Watch Net activated August 26 at 1100 UTC as Hurricane
Dennis made its way across the Caribbean. The National Hurricane
Center reports the storm is moving west-northwest but was expected
to turn northwestward.

At 1500 UTC, the government of the Bahamas issued a hurricane
warning for all of central Bahamas and a portion of northwestern
Bahamas, Eleuthera and the Abacos. A hurricane watch in effect for
the remainder of the northwest Bahamas, including Andros, Berry,
Bimini, Grand Bahama, and New Providence islands.

The Hurricane Center says that residents along the southeast coast
of the US, primarily North and South Carolina, ''should closely
monitor the progress of Dennis.''

''We are receiving reports from the Bahamas now and passing them on
to the National Hurricane Center,'' Hurricane Watch Net Manager Jerry
Herman, N3BDW, said this morning.

The Hurricane Watch Net meets on 14.325 MHz. It coordinates weather
observations from Amateur Radio operators to forecasters via the
National Hurricane Center's W4EHW in Miami.
