Partial Outage: Sunday, December 10th, 2017

Swackett servers in the eastern United States were not responding quickly enough between noon and 3 PM eastern time.

The problem has been corrected — and we will be watching the situation closely.

If you experience any issues please let us know,

Issue with Humidity Levels (Resolved)

Swackett engineers corrected a problem today that could allow humidity levels to appear as zero in the United States.  The issue was caused by humidity levels in our weather data feed reporting with more decimal places than expected — which could result in a rounding error in some cases. This effected all Swackett apps.

If your local humidity does not present as expected  — please let by know by submitting a tech support ticket.

We’re sorry for an inconvenience caused by this issue — and (as always) we appreciate your continued use of Swackett apps!

Issue with Select Local Radar Imagery

Select Swackett apps are experiencing “stuck” local radar imagery in different parts of the country.

If your local radar does not present as an animated radar image for your location — or you see a gray placeholder page — please let by know by submitting a tech support ticket. We are able to work with you to flush the page and get your local radar running again.

We’re sorry for an inconvenience caused by this issue — and we appreciate your patience.

Flash Flood

A Flash Flood is a rapid and extreme flow of high water into a normally dry area, or a rapid water level rise in a stream or creek above an expected flood level, beginning within six hours of the causative event (e.g., intense rainfall, dam failure, ice jam). Please note, the actual time threshold may vary in different parts of the country.

Ongoing flooding can intensify to flash flooding in cases where intense rainfall results in a rapid surge of rising flood waters.
