The Hurricane Watch Net (HWN) stood down on September 20 after 60 hours of activation for Hurricane Maria as did the VoIP Hurricane Net and WX4NHC at the National Hurricane Center. The International Salvation Army Team Emergency Radio Network (SATERN) SSB Net will be in extended monitoring mode through Friday.
“The latest storm track is very good news for the Bahamas and the Dominican Republic,” the Assistant HWN Manager Mike Webb, KC0YHM, said on Wednesday. “We will watch the storm as it progresses…just in case.” The net wrapped up its activation by gathering damage reports and offering health-and-welfare guidance.
The VoIP Hurricane Net stood down as of Wednesday night after activating on September 19 as Hurricane Maria affected Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands. The VoIP Hurricane Net also was active on Monday, September 18, gathering numerous reports of severe and catastrophic damage from the island nation of Dominica. A recorded summary of reports received and a complete list of reports received from all media available to the net are available.
