I want to take a minute to discuss relief efforts that take place ... I never talk about charity organizations that work in a storms recovery but today I will name the only one I feel a donations to is a Very worth while endeavor ... That is Portlight, a group of volunteers made up and started by Members here on Weatherundergound ! They have done some amazing things after Katrina and the earthquake in Haiti and now in Lee's flooding ...
Donations there are always welcome. So if you are inclined take a look at their blog here on WU !!!! and their Web Site and do what you can...

A little about my self - I do this blog as a hobby. During the Hurricane Season when a storm is threatening I may spend most of 12 to 16 hours a day up dating the weather conditions for the people that are being affected by a storm.
I joined weather Underground in August of 2005 right after they opened the blogging feature. I have been a weather hobbyist since the middle 60's when I lived on the west coast of Florida, north of the Tampa Bay area. I currently live in a small community in central Illinois.
I have been through numerous Hurricanes during my life time. The worse being Hurricane Camille in August 17,1969, A Cat 5, where the eye passed over the location I was at. That being Biloxi, Ms when I was in the USAF stationed at Keesler AFB.
I have added in my Recommended Links the explanation of recon Vortex Messages for those who would like to learn more about the recons !!!
