From the creators of the popular comes a new subscription based web site that will give its visitors a unique and extraordinary look at hurricanes via the Web. is a site that takes what we have accomplished with to an entirely new level. HLN, as we call it, will take you on a behind the scenes look at hurricanes and how we report from them and observe them. You will also have access to more data, more web cam images and more video -- both live and archived -- than ever before. And it will all be exclusive to this site.

By using wireless Internet technology from Sprint and an array of weather stations, web cams and even live streaming video, will change the way people see hurricanes on the Internet forever.

For those who sign up for the exclusive content, a wealth of innovation, imagination and adventure awaits. We get dozens of emails a year from people who want to go with us on a hurricane landfall mission. This is not feasible for many reasons. The next best thing is to bring the mission to you through your computer. We can now do that. How would you like to be with us 24 hours a day? How would you like to see and hear the things that go on as we prepare for setting up our weather gear? Then, when it all comes together, how would you like to be able to sit back and watch as hurricane-X makes landfall? Not just TV, but data. Not just data, but data from the core of even the worst hurricane. We can do that now. After years of experience, we are ready.

We will also partner with our good friends at who will take in-the-field hurricane news, reporting and live content to an entirely new level. You know the face and the name: Jeff Flock- former Chicago Bureau Chief for CNN. He is retired now- well, sort of. Now he takes his nearly 20 years of experience and puts it to work for HurricaneNow. We will be partnering with Jeff and HurricaneNow on this monumental effort to deliver the best, most complete hurricane coverage anywhere.

Here is a sample of what you can expect from if you sign up as a subscriber:

  •     Exclusive access to our Three HLP LiveNet data collection stations that we will deploy in each hurricane. We will have three automated weather stations, complete with data, webcam image and hopefully live streaming video from each location- this would be a first for the Internet!
  •     Multiple web cams that WE OWN set up in the landfall zone.
  •     Frequent updates to the HurricaneLiveNet homepage.
  •     Correspondent updates from Jeff Flock of HurricaneNow.
  •     Live video reports from our missions when ever possible- and on a scheduled basis.
  •     We will have cameras with audio going 24/7 to stream video as we travel on our missions. Think of it as "The Truman Show" or more appropriately- a LIVE documentary!
  •     Video report feeds- you know, those shots that I do where I report from so and so location. We'll add more of these than ever before.
  •     Coverage of before, during and after each hurricane on video, audio and commentary.
  •     Exclusive access to our video- including the video captured from our new, state-of-the-art "StormCase Cams". You will see it before network TV does- after all, you're the paying customer. And you'll have unlimited access as well- not just a 10 second clip on television.

We are taking subscriptions now. went live on August 1. Subscribers will have a username and password that they will use to access the exclusive data, video and reports.
