Traffic system RESPONDING for Hurricane Delta

Hurricane Delta, a strong Category 2 storm, is hours from making landfall. In response, the 7290 Traffic Net is running extended sessions tomorrow, Sunday, and Monday.

Given the latest information, I have upgraded the section's traffic system status to RESPONDING. While large volumes of storm-related traffic are not anticipated, traffic handlers are monitoring for and will relay any emergency, priority, or welfare traffic flowing through the traffic system.

The NTS Status Dashboard, now located on the Section website, is the primary resource in North Texas for monitoring the latest traffic system information. It also has the latest forecast map, radar and satellite imagery, audio briefings from the National Hurricane Center, and more as part of tracking Delta.

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.

73,
