Severe weather has the potential to disrupt any business. Lightning strikes, even those that occur miles away from your business, have the potential to cause an electrical surge that might fry your electrical equipment, appliances and computers. This not only affects your productivity, but it could also cause you to lose invaluable data or have to pay for expensive repairs to your equipment. With a real time weather tracker from Earth Networks, you have the data you need to prepare your business for any severe weather scenario.
Many weather apps, news reports and websites use data from locations miles away from you, unless you are fortunate enough to be located on top of a data source. With Earth Networks live weather maps, you see the weather for your location. The data comes from a network of more than 12,000 professional-grade weather stations, including one right in your location, that are updated every two seconds.
With Earth Networks’ Sferic Maps, you have the capability of creating a personalized interface that tells you the data you want to see. You have the option of including various information, such as:
- Web Bulb Approximation
- Heat Index
- Wind Chill
- Temperature Rate
- Severe Weather
- Radar and Satellite images
- Current Observations
This makes it easy to see all the relevant data so that you can make decisions for your business. If it is getting too hot for workers to be outside, you can make that call.
The decision to make alterations to prepare your business for severe weather often requires multiple people. Sometimes, this means that you need to communicate with management or field crews in different locations. With the live maps from Earth Networks, everyone can look at the same live weather maps with the same custom interface so that any decisions are made using the same information.
When it comes to protecting your business from the impact of severe weather, it is important to have the right tools, such as a weather map with real time lightning data. Contact us to learn more about how Earth Networks live maps can help you.
