Disasters! Events! As they happen!!!!

This is a map which supposedly tracks nasty shit happening in the world in real-time.

Earthquakes? Yup.

Floods? Oh yeah.

Forest fires? They’re hot on that!

Plane crashes? They’re DOWN!

Haven’t had  chance to verify if it’s everything it’s cracked up to be… but take a peek..


Why was everyone surprised by the storm in Ottawa last night?

@OttawaDaddy pointed this out on Twitter this morning. I too am amazed at how few people used the Environment Canada radar site to see the storms approaching after receiving Twitter warning & retweets!

Check it out. Easy to use, folks.

This is what it showed this morning. The basics are: orange and red – bad. Purple – head for the hills!

Even simpler, just look at the sky. This is what I saw as the storm rolled in.

Sorta gives a clue about what’s coming, eh?

@OttawaDaddy suggests that everyone should follow @ww_ottawa for weather warnings. Have separate Tweetdeck column. and re-tweet warnings… and I couldn’t agree more.
