(PRWEB) May 9, 2005
Despite a relatively calm start to May, severe weather season is here, and several TV stations across the United States are discovering and linking to WXnation.com ( http://www.wxnation.com ), a live weather and outdoor webcam directory, which lists thousands of live streaming webcams and radar images conveniently by location for more than 100 U.S. cities.
WXnation.com has been featured in recent days on TV newscasts and Web sites in several markets, including San Francisco; Tampa; Nashville, Tenn.; and Columbus, Ohio, following an NBC News Channel report by "PC Mike" Wendland at the end of April.
In early 2003, well before blogs became a priority for many companies, WXnation.com's founder and Webmaster, Bill Young, Jr., started the WXnation Blog ( http://www.wxnation.com/blog ), which provides daily weather and space news. In a 2004 Washington Post article, Young described the blog as "the Drudge Report for weather." WXnation Blog became a popular destination when four major hurricanes hit Florida in 2004 and is now among WeatherBug BlogÂs "Blogs We Read." Today, the blog alone receives thousands of weekly visits as it provides severe weather news this spring and prepares for a new hurricane season.
Based in Fort Worth, Texas, WXnation.com is dedicated to providing its visitors with as many relevant free local weather, webcam, and traffic resources as possible in easy-to-navigate pages. The Web site launched in Feb. 2002, and now covers all major U.S. metropolitan areas, plus two Canadian cities, with a current link count well over 10,000.
WXnation.comÂs homepage features a live satellite and radar image for the U.S., updated every 15 minutes from syndicated weather content provider CustomWeather, Inc.
WXnation.com also features a daily weather and space news blog, a "best-of streaming webcams" page, regularly updated visitors' Top 100 streaming webcams list, has its own live cams in Fort Worth, and includes an archive of the most active weather cities by month going back to its 2002 launch. Even online hotel reservations are available through the newly launched WXnation Hotel Locator.
