Omaha, NE (PRWEB) December 14, 2009
Blizzards, snowstorms and cold temperatures – such as the winter storm that devastated the Midwest last week leaving at least 17 dead, hundreds of thousands without power, and caused Wisconsin to declare a State of Emergency – can be hard to track due to constantly changing weather conditions. The new customizable weather software, Weather Defender 1.1 (http://www.weatherdefender.com/winter)] is now available for use by both consumers and businesses who want to protect families, employees, and property from severe winter weather threats by receiving accurate weather updates in real-time. Weather Defender 1.1 from SWIFT Weather provides users with a customizable “Winter Weather Map” that tracks local and regional rain, sleet, snow radar imagery, blizzard and ice warnings, snowfall measurements, temperature and more.
Weather Defender’s Winter Weather Map includes the following features:
“We know out here in South Dakota that winter weather can quickly present a life or death situation if you’re unprepared,” said Patrick Callahan, General Manager of OAHE-TV in Pierre, South Dakota. “People make their travel plans based on our weather reports so we need an absolutely reliable product. We use Weather Defender 1.1’s Winter Weather Map because of its real-time and advanced warnings as well as the accurate and reliable reports sent straight to my email.”
Callahan, who also works for the City of Pierre government added, “Being able to automatically e-mail officials at all levels of the decision chain with specific threat information is crucial and keeps everyone on same page by bringing uniform information to all of us simultaneously. During severe winter storms having accurate information as-soon-as-possible allows us to make vital decisions which saves money and protects lives.”
