Tropical Storm Hanna - Norfolk, Va Live Stream

I have put up a live stream from my house. This camera is facing due East from the second floor of my house. I will keep it up during Hanna. I have my Natural Gas generator ready to go, so power and internet should stay up during the storm. Keep checking back here or over at my blog. I am officially in storm watch mode and will be providing coverage with video and photography as usual. If we get the eastern side of Hanna, it could get interesting....

2:30pm EST Update: The outer bands of Hanna have started to move through with a nice steady rain, which we desperately need.


4:45pm EST Update: Tornado Watch is now in effect. It looks like we will be getting the Eastern side of Hanna.
9:45pm EST Update: Latest vortex message has Hanna at 978mb and dropping. I'm predicting the NHC goes Hurricane with Hanna at 11pm EST.

6:30AM EST Update: The Live Cam is back online. It does look as though the core of Hanna will move directly over my location. Hanna seems to have a very weak punch at this point after making landfall near Myrtle Beach around 3:30 am this morning, but there are some strong winds around the core of the storm. Maybe we will get some of them?

Very cool radar images, where did you get it from?

I use the Level II Radar overlays from guiweather.com in Google Earth. I also have a bunch of Google Earth overlays from tropicalatlantic.com for updated model runs, recon flight data, and GOES Sat Images (which update the fastest). Check them out, they are free.
