Hurricane Watch Net Active for Igor

The Hurricane Watch Net on 14325 kHz USB has activated for dissemination of National Hurricane Center advisories and reception of weather observations from Bermuda. The eye of Igor is currently about 100 miles from the island, with wind about to become hurricane force. Sustained wind speed has dropped to category one, but tropical storm force extends out for a very long distance.

The Weather Channel is showing live reports from Jim Cantore and a storm chaser, both of whom are in Bermuda.

Control of the Hurricane Watch Net is currently KA5E in Texas.
