Since the hurricane hit new orleans public safety radio communications have been hit and miss.  I just want to let you guys know what icecast is being used for when it isn't streaming a radio/tv station.

If you look on this page http://www.radioreference.com/wiki/index.php/Hurricane_Katrina  you will see a massive list of icecast servers which are streaming emergency services communications from the effected area around new orleans and mississippi.  These feeds are being used by not only civilians but people who are in New Orleans to provide aid and family members who are listening in to try to hear details about loved ones.  I've been getting emails from tv stations, radio stations and just people who want to know what is going on for days since I setup http://hurricane.weatherserver.net and just started with one 200 person icecast server. Now we have multiple servers that can handle 1000 or more users.  

I guess I just want to say thanks for making such a kickass streaming audio server. What people are doing right now wouldn't be possible without it.
