Restoring Internet in Puerto Rico
In this picture provided by Project Loon, internet service for parts of Maria stricken Puerto Rico was being launched to the stratosphere on October 18th. This a project of google's parent company Alphabet and is now giving AT&T customers with a 4G handsets basic internet access, text and e-mail.
Another Loon Balloon was launched from Puerto Rico earlier this year. It took 12 days to direct it through the air currents to get it to Peru. From there it spent 14 weeks aloft, ascending and descending more than 20,000 times to catch currents to keep it in the airspace above providing internet service after the flood disaster.
King Tides Begin in South Florida
The local flooding across Brevard County continues as the rain just seems endless. Florida Today put out an article this morning that included video of the Sheriff's Work Farm and K-9/Officer training facility looking more like a swamp than a place for inmates to grow their vegetables. They also included a video from Harmony Farms. They are a great non-profit that is underwater and looking for help.
Some of the other badly flooded areas include:
Silver Pines Estates in Rockledge
Rockledge west of Fiske Boulevard
Parts of Fellsmere
Cocoa Near the St Johns River
Below is some of the ongoing flooding in Cocoa published by WFTV earlier today.
