News will be slow on MobileTracker in the next few days as hurricane Charley looms towards the Florida coast. We're based in Tampa, FL which is currently bracing for a direct hit from the category 2 storm. There is a chance that Charley will strengthen to a category 3 before it hits Tampa so gas stations have lines and roads are parking lots. The news will return when everything gets back to normal. Stay up to date with Charley at NOAA. AT&T Wireless, Cingular and Nextel have all issued press releases that give mobile communication tips for people going through a hurricane. Update: The storm got even stronger (cat 4) but took a surprise turn and missed Tampa for the most part.
