Earth Alerts (freeware)

Quote from: Earth Alerts
Earth Alerts includes basic weather tracking features such as National Weather Service alerts, current conditions, local forecasts and radar/satellite imagery. Note that this program does not provide the most extensive weather data or "fanciest" weather related imagery compared to what is available online.

I created Earth Alerts to do more than just track weather-related phenomenon. The inspiration for Earth Alerts grew out of an idea to create a single application for monitoring multiple types of natural hazard events. After all, our planet can be quite destructive to us mortals, by offering up dangers in a variety of ways! Earth Alerts is a little program for anybody who is fascinated with the power of nature and enjoys keeping track of what our little blue planet is dishing out on a regular basis!

Earth Alerts is freeware, but donations are appreciated.

Earthquakes, tsunamis, volcanoes, hurricanes, typhoons, tornadoes, thunderstorms, floods, wildfires, landslides... ...these are the kinds of things our planet dishes out, which arouses human curiosity, fascination and fear.

System Requirements:
    * 32-bit/64-bit Windows 7/Vista, 32-bit Windows XP/2000
    * .NET Framework 3.5

# Visual and sound notifications on your Windows desktop identifying active alerts

# Email: information on any type of natural hazard tracked by Earth Alerts can be automatically sent as soon as an alert is raised; email messages contain the same alert reports and images as shown in the Earth Alerts application screens

# Mobile Phone: SMS/MMS messages containing summary alert information with related images (MMS enabled phones only) can be automatically sent to your mobile device; these notifications cover the most severe natural hazard events, including major earthquakes, tsunami watches/warnings, volcanic eruptions and tornado warnings

# Google Earth integration provides visualizations of recent earthquake events, volcanoes, tropical cyclones, wildland fires and severe weather warnings. Google Earth integration also provides high resolution views of any location

Quote from: Earth Alerts settings
Locations - United States
This setting is enabled by default because this is a major feature of Earth Alerts. When enabled, you must have one United States Location setup. This is your "Primary Location". You can also add multiple additional U.S. Locations. However, if you do not wish to monitor Weather, Earthquake or Wildland Fire activity for specific U.S. Locations, you can disable this entire feature by unchecking the setting here.

I like the program, but I think it would stand a better chance if it "merely" was on facebook!

when removed, the program will leave these few files in AppData:
