Viz: Live Hurricane Irene Tracking

Everybody at the east coast seems to be tracking the live status of the Hurricane Irene which is about to strike the coastal NC and may move upward till New Jersey and New York.
Web Visualizations have made our job much easier. Now you don’t need to read the twitter feeds or continuously sit in front of your TV to track it via News Channels.
StormPulse is one of the website showing the trails and the forecasted path of Hurricane Irene in a very neat visualization. You can turn on and off the forecast and see the clouds and the radars etc.
To track on the go, just download apps for your smartphones.
