WILMA UPDATE:

Hurricane Wilma headed into the Atlantic Ocean after its path across southern Florida knocked down trees and power lines and flooded low-lying areas. Insured damages from the storm may be as much as $10 billion, more than any of the four hurricanes to hit the state last year.

Wilma, the eighth hurricane to reach Florida since August 2004, was over the Atlantic, about 350 miles (563 kilometers) south of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina, according to the U.S. National Hurricane Center. One death was attributed to the storm, which cut power to more than 3 million people.

Not bad compared to what we’ve seen lately, but bad enough. The Hurricane relief donations list still works.

UPDATE: Here’s a report from Cozumel, via Doc Searls.
