Interesting -- someone was nuts enough to blog Hurricane Charley. Or should I say, his employer was nuts enough to SEND him to blog the hurricane.

Read it here:

Storm Central

I hope the guy's all right. That was one wicked Category 4 hurricane that rampaged through Florida yesterday/last night.

There are several posters from who were in or near the path of the hurricane. Fortunately, all but a couple of them have either posted to the message board themselves that they're OK, or have called other board regulars to post for them (if their electricity and/or internet access is out).

*UN*fortunately, those one or two (it might be down to just one, I have to check again) are people who were in Punta Gorda/Port Charlotte, which caught the full brunt of Charley right when it made landfall as a Category 4. The rest of us from are praying like mad that they're all right. The damage in that area was severe, and there are some preliminary reports of multiple casualties.

I hate this. I feel like checking every two seconds to see if, by chance, our last few people have checked in somehow with a status report (either firsthand or via another poster whose internet access is intact).

I'm worried.
