WeatherUnderground ditches webcams

There you have it:

To our webcam community members:

We would like to share some important news with you. After 10 years of proudly displaying your webcam footage across our website, apps and via our API, we sadly have to remove this functionality as we no longer have the necessary resources to maintain it.

On December 15, 2017, we’ll remove all incoming webcam feeds, so the ability to access webcam footage across our properties will no longer be available.

In their FAQ's they play the free web hosting card. 


Hmmmm, no mention of the free data that we give them. :mad:

My stuff is already gone.   I looked at their sites an anywhere West of the Missouri River was functioning as of last night, but they are moving on down the pike.  Eh...  I send them data  until they take that as well, I am going to continue the data.   I can send pictures to my website.
