Some people say "Noah" and some people say "N, O double AA". Either way, they're all talking about the same organization, the "National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration"; perhaps the best-kept secret in government. Take a quick trip to the NOAA Web site and you'll immediately be struck by two things. They're about a lot more than the weather and they have one of the most beautiful websites on the Internet. You can find fascinating information on everything from giant squid, to climate, or NOAA satellite images. That's just the tip of the iceberg. The images throughout the website are stunning and the articles are filled with some of the most interesting stuff you can read online.
Since the mid 1990s, the NOAA's National Weather Service has been making its way into American homes by way of their NOAA Weather Radios. A lot of people rely on NOAA Weather Radios for immediate information about natural hazards like tornados, volcanic activity, strong winds, and earthquakes, as well as technological hazards like oil and chemical spills. The NOAA issues warnings and forecasts 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, in all fifty states. It's no surprise that in the aftermath of 9/11 people have been wondering why the NOAA Alert system was not used to signal a national crisis. Will it be used in the event of another national crisis?
