Emergency weather feeds

Dan Harper has been writing about church administration and his last installment was about emergency preparedness.

There’s a resource that I doubt many ministers or church administrators know about: the “Experimental XML Feeds and Web Displays of Watches, Warnings, and Advisories.”  With it, you can subscribe to an RSS feed for your state, county, or in some cases, sub-county.

I know most people don’t read RSS feeds yet, but if you have the must-have Firefox 1.5 browser (with its integrated RSS feeds; fine if you only read a few) all it takes is a couple clicks from the orange broadcasty button in the address bar and you can have the emergency weather feed on your desktop.
