Improvements to iNWS Alerts
Posted Apr 8 2009 11:03 PM
We have made some small but useful changes to iNWS Alert messages. We are now applying some smarter alert aggregation which will eliminate instances of receiving one alert for each of your alert areas even when only a single NWS product triggered all the alerts. Now you will receive one alert with your alert areas aggregated. We are also inserting a link at the the end of each alert that will take you to a simple web page showing the full text of the alerted NWS product and the NWS product overlaid with your alert area on a map. This web page is basic now and will improve over time. Enjoy!
