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.

Eye on Ivan

A South Mississippi hurricane journal

Thursday, September 16, 2004


An e-mailer from the West Coast:

Guess you're in for a long night -- hope you have someone to "spell" you so you can get some rest. Those of us watching from the West coast very much appreciate your work. And I second the opinion that the weather channel's Florida-centric coverage is not serving us well (not that we lack sympathy for the Floridians).

In some ways, we here in La-La-Land envy the "warning" time that a hurricane offers (as opposed to an earthquake) but in other ways, it also seems to ratchet up the anxiety to have it drawn out over such a long period. Really hope you grab any opportunity to get some rest.

We send you all our best wishes that y'all come through this safely.

I'm not sure how much longer I'll be posting tonight. If I get to a slow spot, I'm sure I'll find a catnap.
