Rothl Jr. an- nounced the decision of the U.S. Department of Commerce to re- verse its earlier decision to cut staff at the National Hurricane Center. The department will instead transfer funds from another pro- gram in order to maintain funding for the hurricane center.

"Huron, Michigan has its original lightship and there's another in Oregon," said Clarkson, "but none on the east COaSt." The original Lightship Over- falls marked the Overfalls shoal in the mouth of Delaware Bay, about equidistant between Lewes and Cal May. The lightship really waSn't visi- ble from Lewes. The lightship "Any reduction in these services could be devastating to the resi- dents and visitors of our beaches," according to a proclamation is- sued by Sussex County Council on April 8. The federal government had been considering a reduction in National Weather Service funding of $27.5 million, much of which would have been born by the Hur- ricane Center. The proclamation noted the po- tential impact on the county of cutbacks at the federal agency. "Cutbacks could affect their oper- ations, which include forecasting storm tracks, issuing warnings, and gathering weather data in a timely manner and whereas, the last three hurricane seasons have been the busiest in recorded weather history and.. ,whereas, the Sussex County Emergency Operations Center is dependent on the National Hurricane Center to provide information, including lo- cation of a storm, its direction, wind speed and any warnings that may be needed."
