Hurricane Fay is Finally (Hopefully) Going Away

With a brutal few days of rain, Tropical Storm Fay came and decided to check in for a few days. I am no hurricane or storm expert so I wanted to point you to a few resources for tracking the remnants of Fay and a few bookmarks for next time a storm comes floating our way. - Run by the Weather Channel, they would seem to be the experts in this field, although it is national site.

MyFoxHurricane - Run out of Tampa Bay they have a comprehensive page full of charts, radar and other useful information about current and potential storms.

WFTV Ch. 9 Hurricane Watch - A page dedicated to tracking storms, great local information.

For Orlando Weather - No page dedicated to hurricane tracking (that I could find), but a great local weather source.

WESH NBC Orlando Hurricane Center - Great landing page with information on storm tracking but also pages for Evacuation Procedures, Shelter Information, Emergency Contacts, a Prep List and more.

Local 6 Hurricane Center
- Aggregated page with updated tracking of all storms in the tropics, plus news stories, blog posts and related articles.

News 13 Hurricane Center
- A page dedicated to news stories, articles, tracking updates and general hurricane information including a hurricane alert program.

Mashable, a Social Networking and Online News Blog, has a list of other great sources to track Fay and other storms that are making waves in the Tropics.

I hope that everyone escaped the storm in good health and everything will be back to normal come Monday. If anyone wishes to share any stories, please leave them in the comments or send a message to

Happy hunting Orlando!
