New Additions to Online Preparedness Tools and Resources

New Additions to Online Preparedness Tools and Resources

The following online sites have recently been added to Prepography‘s Preparedness Tools and Resources page.  They’re primarily situational awareness resources.  Check out the page for all our Online Preparedness Tools and Resources.  Additionally, feel free to suggest new additions to Online Preparedness Tools and Resources that you think would be of benefit to Prepography‘s subscribers.

  • Radiation Network:  Provides a real-time, geographical representation of environmental radiation levels in the Continental United States (CONUS) overlaid with a map of nuclear sites.  Compare the U.S. map to this map of Radiation in Japan.
  • Spaceweather:  Space weather forecasts as well as the tracking of dangerous solar flares/Coronal Mass Ejections, Geomagnetic Storm activity and tracking of near earth asteroids.
  • Weather Forecasts from Intellicast:  Source for several types of weather forecasts including local, national, and global mapping as well as storm tracking, travel maps and an influenza tracking map.  There’s an interesting mood map as well where they track potentially mood altering weather events…hmm.  Thanks to Prepography reader Dan in Seattle for the link.
  • Wind Map of the U.S.: This map is actually an art project but the data’s pulled from the National Digital Forecast Database hourly.  Great tool to monitor generalized wind direction for your region and start visualizing prevailing winds.  Understanding the prevailing wind direction in your area gives you a jump start for planning immediate actions in the event of wind dispersed threat like chemical spills, airborne biological attacks and fallout or radiological events.
