NOAA – FEMA – NHC Sites Still Running

Tropical Storm Karen, 10-3-2013

Despite some scary news reports, the government IS maintaining various NOAA websites such as theNational Weather Service “to protect lives and property.” The site will give critical weather updates including active alerts from the National Hurricane Center (NHC). Weather forecasts, alerts, various maps and graphs for the U.S. and individual zip code areas are all functioning properly. Also Rick Knabb, the director of the (NHC), has an ongoing Twitter feed.

The NWS Facebook page and FEMA (Federal Emergency Management System) remain active info conduits for online users.
