The Sun Herald's publishing plans

The Sun Herald will produce an Extra Edition on Wednesday that will be delivered free of charge to hurricane shelters across the Mississippi Gulf Coast. We will leave sufficient copies so that anyone who would wish to receive a copy may drop by the shelter nearest to them to get theirs.

Due to the approach of Hurricane Ivan, normal home delivery will not be possible.

As soon as it is possible, we will resume our regular schedule of publication, but obviously that will be impacted by the storm.

Every day that we are unable to produce and deliver a paper to subscribers we intend to produce papers that will be delivered to storm shelters. We have in place a number of contingency plans to continue publication should our printing facilities be impaired.

A Coastie in Pa. 

Tommy Clifford e-mails:

This Blog has been invaluable in reducing anxiety for all who read this from afar. I am in Central PA attending med school and have been starved for information concerning friends and relatives. Even though not specifically mentioning my neighborhood (Gulf Park Estates - South of the Bayou any info would be appreciated), I have read enough to be reasonably sure that damage in the area was nearly as severe as feared. As a Camille survivor, I always fear the worst and hope for the best. Looks like we had more of the later than the former.

On a side note, I found it to be somewhat interesting that AccuWeather forecasts for tropical weather are prepared by meteorologists in State College, PA. Go figure.
