[ldm-users] Contingency planning for Hurricane Ike


If you're feeding from Bigbird or Sasquatch, please plan to have alternates available over the weekend. Although we do not anticipate losing power and backup power, these things have happened before.

For those of you who haven't taken notice, NCH is prog'ing a landfall due south of my site by about 100 miles. The degree of recurve after landfall is subject to some conjecture. I'm anticipating we'll see 60+ kt sustained winds and 80 kt or so gusts, which is somewhat higher than this area's used to. I expect downed trees and power lines, and given the history of our power system, I expect some power failures. If we stay up, there's no guarantee other areas of campus will, as we're pretty widely dispersed,

See you on the other side...
