Are you a hurricane watcher?

One benefit of Storm Shield, our new “Weather Radio” iPhone app is that users of can track the paths of hurricanes and tropical storms.

In Storm Shield’s interactive map, users can switch between weather overlays to see severe alerts on the map or track hurricane and tropical storm paths.

If you already have Storm Shield, tap on “iMap Radar”, then tap the “Severe Weather Overlays” button at the bottom of the map (see attached screengrab) and scroll down to (and tap) the “Hurricane Tracks” option.

 

Thanks for the page views in 2008

Here are the top 20 largest referrers of traffic to knoxnews/govolxtra with our own sites or those of our vendors, like obituary site Legacy.com, pulled out.

Google has three of the 20 spots. locally based blogger Glenn Reynolds’ has two on the list (Pajamas Media and Instapundit), and the government’s Oak Ridge complex also has two with doe.gov and ornl.gov.

You will probably recognize most of the domain names. Usnpl.com is a newspaper list site with a lot of annoying popup ads.

For all the sites, large and small, that send us traffic throughout the year, a hearty thank you!
