Hazardous Weather Alert (thanx jdarkwulf)

And you thought you were having bad weather...

(The original NOAA weather service page won't last very long, so the page has been Saved to the Stormdancer Archives. I suspect someone's gonna be in trouble for this one...)

Update [10:35]: Awww, it's already gone, less than 45 minutes after I spotted it. Wuff got it from FARK, so the NOAA people probably noticed that they were getting bombarded with hits for a little out-of-the-way town in Missouri and found the gag. Check the Archive Link, kids, it's still good.

Oh, and there really is a Hazardous Weather Condition moving into that area, so they needed to scrub the gag to let people know the real thing.

I stand by my original hypothesis: Somebody's Gonna Get In Trouble.



Update [11:02]: At The Missouri: All Warnings NOAA page, I found this:
WWUS73 KEAX 171825
NPWEAX
