Best local web site for storm info

Those outside of the immediate Pensacola area who will enjoy uninterrupted electric power over the next several days may want to follow local storm info as it unfolds via internet radio at WUWF-FM. This National Public Radio (NPR) affiliate did a phenomenal job of covering Hurricane Ivan last year, first by simulcasting with Pensacola's WEAR-TV and other local commercial radio stations, and then by carrying on by itself when other media went down for the count.

While you're there, take a moment and click over to the radio station's Call to Action section to learn how you -- yes, even a single listener like you or me or our neighbors -- can help preserve this extremely important local public radio station.
