Hurricane Charley has left a trail of destruction in Florida and is doing more of the same in the Carolinas. We've been covering it over at Command Post and I'm just devestated by the stories I'm reading. The phrase I keep hearing is significant loss of life. While it would seem the states hit hard were prepared for Charley, what they weren't prepared for - and what no one can precisely predict - was the hurricane's sudden turn, which took it directly into the area where people who were evacuated had headed for safety. We've got a whole bunch of stories over at TCP, and we're tracking the radar to see where Charley is headed next. What we've also got is ways to help. Right now there are two posts up detailing ways to make donations, and soon we are going to attempt to coordinated blog effort to get much needed donations to the devastated areas. Stay tuned, and for those in the path of Charley, stay safe.
