All are invited to the Friends of the Cape Coral Library General Meeting on Saturday, September 16. The morning will begin at 9:30 AM with coffee, tea, light snacks, and social time.

Our guest speaker Greg Rule, WINK News Meteorologist, will give a presentation on hurricane forecasting and preparedness, including recapping the timeline of Hurricane Ian, what was learned and what can be done better if another major hurricane hits our area. He will also give us a look at real time satellites and radar and what, if anything, is brewing in the tropics. Don’t miss what is sure to be a fascinating look at what goes on behind the scenes in weather prediction for Southwest Florida.
