Foreca powers new severe weather service on MSN
Foreca, a customer-driven weather company, has developed a new severe weather service that is now available for anyone on MSN (www.msn.com).
The severe weather service provides real-time information about natural hazards in the USA, such as tornadoes, floods, hurricanes, and earthquakes. In addition, the service collects health-relevant information, for example air quality and pollen, under the same unified user experience.
The fully interactive user interface has been designed and implemented by Foreca. The data display responds to mouse hovers and clicks, providing more in-depth information about the phenomena. Under the hood, the state-of-the-art Foreca back-end service combines over half a dozen different data sources and updates time-critical warnings, such as tornado information, every minute.
The new service is optimal for weather enthusiasts and a must for anyone who wants to be prepared for natural hazards in the USA. Beyond the basic information, you can also deep-dive into a variety of interesting phenomena. For instance, you may find a quarry blast hidden among the earthquakes, or investigate the primary pollinating plants in your area right now.
