Webcams are missing, but...

It looks like WU is going to keep the weather Camera feature running. The current configurations have been deleted it looks like. I Re-added mine but have not seen it reappear as of yet. I did see a statement saying that they heard us loud and clear and are going to keep the webcams.

I re-added mine but the camera list is still blank.

Hopefully we hear something from WU soon

Yep.  My cams are all gone, too.

I wonder if this has anything to do with my bloomsky suddenly vanishing this afternoon.

they have not kept  up resources with growth
all those new weather stations that can send data direct to WU over the last few years will not have helped with the load issues

I found the following comment by a WU employee, looks like they are having some serious problems with their AWS

Isn't there a prime-time segment on TWC called Weather Underground?  Perhaps with the publicity and the big storm, WU just got swamped.  I'd bet it's a result of underfunding and understaffing of WU by TWC.
