iNWS fix implemented at 1910z today to mitigate warnings being sent to neighboring counties
Posted Jan 31 2013 7:30 PM
A software upgrade was made to the iNWS software a few weeks ago to resolve an issue caused by counties/zones divided by a complex border (ie river, coastal area). This change inadvertently created a new problem. For situations when a warning polygon crossed and ran just inside the neighboring county boundary, the alert was sent to that county as well. A software fix to iNWS was implemented on 1/31/2013 at 1910z to correct the issue. We apologize for any confusion this caused.
