As an update to the Hurricane Layer we launched last week, we've added some additional data to support the approach of potentially dangerous Hurricane Ike. The folks at Weather Bonk have once again provided us with Webcam data in Texas. Look under the "Hurricane Season 2008" folder under "Weather" to see "Hurricane Ike Webcams."
Many of those webcams are in the Houston / Galveston area and illustrate the road conditions present in the current mandatory evacuation. The folks at weather.com have also provided us with data from the Hurricane Hunter aircraft that fly into the heart of hurricanes to collect data. We've posted the data as a kml file here, which we'll continue to update as new data comes in.
