StormSiren 1.02

StormSiren provides a severe weather monitoring and alert tool.
StormSiren provides a severe weather monitoring and alert tool.

StormSiren is a personal severe weather monitoring tool that communicates information from National Weather Service issued bulletins on potential and imminent hazardous weather.

When such bulletins are detected, the program sends a concise summary of the alert to one or more devices, including pagers, SMS-capable wireless phones, or e-mail accounts.

The summaries are designed to fit within a 160 character display and contain the type of hazard, the affected counties and cities defined by the user, and the issue and expiration times of the bulletin.


Under Posix systems like Linux, Free/Open/NetBSD, Solaris and so forth, the data directory is $HOME/.StormSiren. The tarball version of the program is set to use /usr/bin/env python. If env is not supported on your platform, try setting the shebang to the location of your interpreter. If you are a RedHat Linux user, you may want to change the shebang to #!/usr/bin/env python2 to use a 2.x version of Python rather than 1.5.2. 7

What's New in This Release:

Added support for authenticated SMTP.
Modified NWS severe weather warning identification number parsing (forms part of state file information).
