Saving Lives One Alert at a Time – Behind the Scenes at WeatherBug

We invited our partner Intel to go behind the scenes at WeatherBug-Earth Networks to get an exclusive view on how we produce the fastest alerts to severe weather.

Here’s how the story starts…

“Bill Callahan was meeting with fellow meteorologists on the afternoon of May 20, 2013, as the massive EF5 tornado bore down on Moore, Oklahoma. As he watched the tornado’s approach, Callahan said he was in awe of its power and saddened by the destruction and loss of life it was about to cause.”

Watch and get an inside look at how we strive to make an impact — we invite you to the WeatherBug-Earth Networks headquarters in the greater D.C. area. Witness how we operate our sensor networks to produce the fastest early warnings!

A huge thanks to the Intel team and today’s computing horsepower for enabling the Earth Networks’ Total Lightning Network, so we can deliver to you Dangerous Thunderstorm Alerts (DTAs) and Spark lightning alerts on the WeatherBug mobile apps!
