Special Report: WINTER STORM JONAS
WASHINGTON, D.C.—Big Data, Predictive Analytics, and supercomputer weather models, accurately predict and warn millions of Americans of a major winter storm yet formed; keeping thousands off of hazardous roads and out of harm’s way.
Advance notices of this magnitude facilitated disaster recovery and continuity of operations (DR/CoOP) planning for municipalities, some eventually buried under three feet of snow.
First responders, utility companies, and National Guard units along the east coast were in position before the first snow flakes arrived.
