Weather alerts and hurricane tracking
ContactRelief monitors the United States National Weather Service, which issues alerts when severe weather is forecasted to impact your customers. This means you get advanced warning of floods, tornadoes, hurricanes, and much more. By also directly monitoring the National Hurricane Center, ContactRelief shows you the most probable hurricane track and its cone of uncertainty days in advance of landfall. This allows you to take proactive action and service your customers before contact suspensions go into force.
ContactRelief monitors the national wildfire reporting systems giving you daily updates on wildfires. Wildfire perimeters are mapped so you can see precisely who is affected. As firefighters bring the blaze under control, see the updated "Percent Containment" numbers directly from firefighting officials. When wildfires threaten urban populations local officials order evacuations, you will know exactly where and when they are issued and how many people are affected.
