GOES Weather Satellite Image from 11:00 am EST.

You can see Gustav, Hanna and the leftovers from Fay. You can also see the TS off the Baja Peninsula in the Pacific. TS number nine is just behind Hanna.

This weekend also: flooding in Bangladesh, a 6.o earthquake in China, a 5.8 earthquake in New Zealand.

UMCOR gathers together "stuff" -- as well as money. If you feel so le go to their website and donate money or download the lists of "stuff" you can donate. The girls and I have packed Health Kits before. A health kit contains:
  • 1 hand towel (15" x 25" up to 17" x 27", No kitchen towels)
  • 1 washcloth
  • 1 comb (large and sturdy, not pocket-sized)
  • 1 nail file or fingernail clippers (no emery boards or toenail clippers)
  • 1 bath-size bar of soap (3 oz. and up)
  • 1 toothbrush (single brushes only in original wrapper, No child-size brushes)
  • 6 adhesive plastic strip sterile bandages
  • $1.00 to purchase toothpaste
