Thanks for the heads-up, Larry!

An updated zip is available on my site as 'wxusalerts.zip'.

The NWS's transition to SSL is in progress.  There's an updated zip of this script on my web site that uses 'https://' exclusively and that has valid links (regional headquarters no longer host any of the WFO's sites--all 'weather.gov' now).

Cool script.  I just put it on my Saratoga website.

I haven't modified the wxusalerts.php file and I'm not sure how to get it to fit in with the rest of the page.

Actually, there's no way (short of incurring days of work along with massive headaches) to change the size of this map because of the hard-coded WFO areas that are 'clickable'.  I've just allowed it to occupy the space it needs while overhanging the normal narrow Saratoga template's right margin.  I've centered it in Saratoga Widescreen mode, however.

Thankfully, someone out there has already done the work in jQuery and it actually works (I'm using it).

(edit: fixed link - was to my "sandbox" before)

All I had to do was include the plugin and then add three lines of jQuery (one for each map). Magic!

Great find, jasiu! This jQuery plugin was written some time after I purloined/adapted the NWS Home Page.  :-)

Your NWS Home Page adaptation looks super and works well.

I've downloaded the plugin and will play with it when I get a chance.

Glad to be a help Jerry (I'm used to just getting in people's way :) ).

Another note: The links that still use www.prh.noaa.gov (Hawaii, Guam, Samoa) should still be http - they haven't been switched over to https yet (just checked on www.weather.gov). I was getting the firefox "this site does not seem to be secured" message.

Thanks to jaisu's great find and groundbreaking script which he was kind enough to share with me and to help me get a resizing version of WXUSALERTS up and running!

My menu contains the new resized alerts map as well as the old fixed-size map.  The resized map doesn't auto-update, but that is a frill at best.

You can see the variably-sizing map at work if you scroll down and Set 'Widescreen'.

Thanks again, jaisu! =D> \:D/ =D>

Itís currently set up for the Saratoga template.  Other templates users will have to customize it for their sites. Sorry.

Glad you found it!  I forgot to mention the lone setting, $divWidth.

Should be fixed now.  I also initially failed to include 'image-map.min.js' to be placed in the directory of your choice.  I added a second setting which is the directory variable that points to the location of 'image-map.min.js'.

Sorry about that! :oops:

New zip is in place.

Not quite a wrap until I fixed a missing terminal space that resulted from adding the 'New Tab' title to the Legend members which caused validation to fail.  The wxuselerts-varsize.php script now validates once again, and a new zip is on my site.
