Tune into APRS on 144.39 just about anywhere.  All hurricanes are usually
transmitted nationwide.  If you dont want to use radio and a TNC and run
APRS, then go to www.aprs.net and you will see all hurricane objects
plotted there.  The beauty of APRS is that it not only shows you the
storms location, but also the location of all the HAMS that are also on
the air LIVE in the area too.

That web site will start with a map of the South Florida area.  But click
on a map or zoom out to see the bigger picture...
