The Kentucky Statewide VOST is an initiative managed by Team W700.
It streamlines storm reports, automatically including geo-tags, allowing for the direct upload of photos, and can be configured to have reports go directly to agencies such as the National Weather Service, County Emergency Managers, and News Outlets.
Imagine reporting a tree across the road after straight-line winds, and that report immediately alerts the NWS, Local Road Crews, Emergency Personnel, and the News. Your local ambulance crews will know to avoid that road until it’s marked as resolved.
More information and a detailed map of participating counties and agencies can be found at http://www.teamw700.com/KSIV
