A word of thanks from the National Weather Service.
Special thanks to our net control operators who put in a pretty long evening (and day), Bob Kaegi KB8TPC and Dave Stuart KB0SLY.
A very popular video clip has many people seeking shelter from severe weather under highway overpasses. BAD MOVE!
We normally don’t expect to be activated at this time of year, but when the NWS calls, we will bring up the nets.

Midland model 74-200 radios that have a serial number beginning with 904 or 905 are being recalled.
We have learned of the release of a few new products. Each, in its own way, is interesting. If nothing else, they give everyone a choice and may create some competition in the market.
A quick reference to the siren activation criteria for various counties.
Without the diligence of spotters and the hard work of the Wilmington Office of the National Weather Service, the toll could have been much worse.
A recap and photos of the event.
