    Default Hurricane Irma on the loose!

    I find it interesting that I caught on my FTA satellite news feeds today a *hurricane watch* news cam from possibly Antigua or Barbuda, where Irma is still 100+ miles to the east.

    I *believe* the logo bug is cut off but does anyone recognize or know the station using the hurricane cam? As of today Irma is a Cat 5 hurricane.

    I found out this morning this is NOT a TV station but a mobile camera service based out of Saddle River NJ, called EarthCam. The EarthCam service that ABC News is monitoring on FTA satellite (pics above) for the hurricane is from St. Croix, Virgin Islands. Go to the link below for the EarthCam sites that are monitoring Hurricane Irma. The main view that loads is from St. Croix. If you DON'T have this type of news coverage in your home, you can check out what's going on with the hurricane through this website.
