Re: national radar mosaic missing?


Hi All,

I just checked, and we have not been getting the FNEXRAD feed .... I don't know 
if this is
related to  our power outage over the weekend, or Unidatas DOS attack.  I 
remade the ldm
queue on sunshine.ssec.wisc.edu, and I now see the FNEXRAD data flowing again.
