The WeatherBug Meteorology team at Earth Networks℠ is actively tracking Hurricane Irene, the Category 1 hurricane that could threaten the U.S. on Thursday or early Friday. Irene will be the first, and possibly major, hurricane threat to the U.S. mainland this season. The WeatherBug Meteorology team continues to track Hurricane Irene using weather data from more than 2,000 WeatherBug Weather Stations located along the East Coast, advanced weather and lightning tracking tools, and data from the National Hurricane Center (NHC). For the latest developments, information and alerts, turn to the following:
- WeatherBug Apps: The WeatherBug mobile apps and desktop application provide weather information and severe weather alerts from the National Weather Service (NWS), in addition to WeatherBug exclusive Dangerous Thunderstorm Alerts (DTAs).
- WeatherBug Website: Follow the path of Hurricane Irene and stay posted on conditions along the East Coast by accessing weather and lightning data from WeatherBug’s proprietary network of Weather Stations. Live images from hundreds of cameras, including ones in Miami, Clearwater Beach, and Jacksonville, Fla., Ocean City, Md., and Margate City, N.J., are featured on the WeatherBug website.
- Enterprise Solutions: Federal, state and local officials, as well as professionals in the emergency response sector, can turn to StreamerRT, an advanced web-based visualization tool that enables users to select parameters for National Hurricane Center forecast tracks, hurricane cones, wind swaths and forecast model tracks for optimal storm visualization and tracking.
- WeatherBug Social Networks: WeatherBug Meteorologists will be watching the conditions closely and posting frequent updates at http://weather.weatherbug.com/hurricanes/hurricane.html, via Twitter (http://twitter.com/#!/weatherbug), and Facebook (www.facebook.com/WeatherBug.Meteorologists).
