« on: August 23, 2006, 09:19:37 AM »
Don't know how long these links will last...

Scary stuff in this day and age...

At: http://www.erh.noaa.gov/ilm/ you'll see a S.C. county shaded in pink, with the matching legend "Civil Emergency Message".

Interesting that they used a reverse 911...

I see those emergency messages pop up from time to time on a couple of my web pages that display non-weather warnings as well as weather warnings.  The real emergency messages I have seen, have usually been for extreme flooding and they closed all the roads in the county which happened recently in Montana or a train has derailed and a tankcar full of toxic chemicals is in danger of splitting open.  

My main weather web page (scroll down about 4 pages)
http://jobinfo.freeyellow.com/UCWeather/UCWeather.php

And my Warnings Only Page
http://jobinfo.freeyellow.com/UCWeather/warnauto.php

And just for info, the warnings displays on my main web page and warnings only page will also show any of the following non-weather warnings and emergencies that are relayed by the NWS from various agencies whenever they occur.  I create the displays using the NWS RSS feeds and CaRP Evolution which is an RSS Caching Processer and all the different warnings are color coded similar to what you see on the NWS map.

Tsunami Warning
Earthquake Warning
Local Area Emergency  
Law Enforcement Warning  
911 Telephone Outage  
Hazardous Materials Warning  
Nuclear Power Plant Warning  
Radiological Hazard Warning  
Civil Danger Warning  
Civil Emergency Message  
Evacuation - Immediate  
Fire Warning  
Shelter In Place Warning  
Volcano Warning
Child Abduction Emergency
