Hello Miami Herald Team,

I know you probably receive tons of emails every day, so I’ll keep it short.

I see that you publish some really great content on miamiherald.com. I am writing a well-researched, data-driven, and in-depth blog post, which might be a great addition to your blog.

IAN

We're getting a LOT of rain in Miami, but the worst of Ian appears to be headed for the Tampa-St. Pete area. We hope the folks up there get through it OK. And we urge everyone to heed the words of Walter the Weather Oosik, who reminds you to make sure you have enough emergency supplies on hand to last until you pass out.
