4/11/2008 was a big day for the Alabama Storm Trackers especially on an exposure level.We just wanted to direct everyone to our blog and show some of the coverage that we were able to capture on our live stream.We are basically taking this opportunity to thank all of our sponsors who have supported us.This post will also be featured on the 33/40 blog page.With the help of GRLevelX, Allisonhouse products, SevereStreaming.com, Autonet Mobile, Cyfre and Maximum Signal we were able to intercept and relay video of this dangerous weather in a timely fashion.Our coverage was watched by the National Weather Service as well during this event.The spotternetwork also proved to play a key role in one of our critical storm reports as it always does.Thanks again everyone!
