Ivan watch (a personal note)

Ivan watch (a personal note): Thanks to those who have e-mailed regarding my family who live in Mobile, Ala. A brother and sister-in-law in the Spring Hill section of Mobile are riding Ivan out in their home (along with some neighbors who have many more over-hanging trees than they have). My mother is across Mobile Bay, in Daphne, and is similarly situated in a high, dry facility with plenty of food, water and an industrial generator standing by. My other brother, another Mobile resident, was last seen at Disney World where lines are short. I’ll pass along any original reports I hear (however, I’m anticipating that phone service there will be down soon). Local information can be found at the sources linked below (I’ll be adding more.):
