Acknowledging Disaster

When we at SWIFT Weather equipped our latest version of Weather Defender 1.1 with the ability to track natural disasters on a global scale, we had no idea the kind of devastation that would happen just a few months later. As our customers already know, the Ranger Weather Map in Weather Defender 1.1 includes an Earthquakes tracking layer, as shown here:

Unfortunately, we have no way to predict where earthquakes will strike next. All we can do is offer our support after the fact to those who need it most. That is why we have contributed to the American Red Cross Haiti Reflief Fund, and we would encourage anyone who is able to contribute what they can:
