As of 8pm this evening I have had no messages or received any status reports from Durham EM or Red Cross concerning needs from Durham ARES. Durham Co from previous discussions expects to receive up to 2 inches of rain with a wind advisory in effect from 6am Sat morning until Sunday morning with gusts up to 40mph. The following items are from Laurie EC for Orange Co ARES and I recommend that Durham Co ARES members take note and feel free to check-in to the Orange Co ARES net tomorrow at 0930 (Item 2) for the latest info. Also I've posted a need for operators for Eastern Branch here on the website, email Tom Brown N4TAB concerning your availability for details.

We are requesting our ARES volunteers that would be willing to deploy to the Eastern Branch to support disaster operations in County EOCs, shelters and other disaster related facilities to contact Tom Brown, N4TAB to put your name on a list.
