Default Hurricanes?

Please Login to Remove!

As everyone knows by now, Florida and hurricanes are pretty synonymous.

I have BBWeather on my 7130e by VZW and am wondering is there is something that lets me view hurricane updates/tracking?

Thanks in advance!

Bbtoday has an weather service. Highlite weather then click the thumb wheel and select "select". It will take you to a site where you can view warnings, track storms and view radar and satilite pics.

I, too, live in Florida and have a 7130e.

I have been disappointed in the weather software available for Blackberry hurricane tracking. I subscribed to The Weather Channel at $59.99 per year.

The Weather Channel software gives me warnings for my area, radar images, hurricane discussions, and isn't bad software. However, at times like today, I am most interested in a map of a hurricane's forecasted track to glance at periodically. I have found the best place to get that map to be at AccuWeather.com WAP Site. .

I am disappointed that The Weather Channel software doesn't include a similiar projected track map. I did a trial of Weather Bug for Blackberry, and found it to have even less than The Weather Channel.
