Data Buoy Down

If you have been wondering why there is not data coming through from the Grays Reef buoy, it's because it is beached on Cumberland Island.

The last readings from this very expensive piece of equipment showed close proximity wave heights at 14ft. before being ripped from its mooring .

Carol on Cumberland found the buoy while on turtle patrol. No telling when this important station will be re attached as funding for many of these costly research data stations is on the line.
