I will second W3UR's reminder to avoid the 20-meter emcomm nets and add a 
reminder that emergency traffic nets on 40 and 75-meters are shown as 
operating from the beginning of the General Class allocations to the upper 
band edge.  This is going to make it difficult for General Class contesters 
over the following weeks as emergency operations progress.  It's too early 
to tell how long these frequencies will be occupied, but we should all be 
extra careful to give them a wide berth if there is any ongoing activity
