After today’s extended session, the 7290 Traffic Net did not receive storm-related traffic. After careful consideration, the 7290 Traffic Net team determined that extended sessions are no longer needed.
Based on this and other current information, I have lowered the traffic system status to Monitoring. Should storm-related traffic arrive in the traffic system, it will be relayed based on its precedence (emergency, priority, or welfare) which the system continuously accounts for in its day-to-day operations. Unless we see traffic, such as from post-incident situational reports such as damage reports, the system will return to Normal Operation tomorrow afternoon.
My thanks to everyone for stepping up ahead of and during Hurricane Delta. I hope this will be the last hurricane for this year, but if another storm does strengthen and threaten our or neighboring areas, we’ll be ready.
