NOAA mPING

posted in: ARES/RACES | 0

The NOAA National Severe Storms Laboratory is collecting public weather reports through a free app available for smart phones or mobile devices.

The app is called “mPING,” for Meteorological Phenomena Identification Near the Ground

This program is in addition to the SKYWARN program – It may be of interest to SKYWARN members

Looks interesting and wanted to pass it along to you.
