Sample Energy Disruptions Map (Source: U.S. Energy Information Administration)
Good Monday morning. Even though the peak of hurricane season is over... its always good to be storm aware! And here is a good way... did you know the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) has introduced teractive maps that combine real-time data feeds from NOAA's National Hurricane Center with more than 20 map layers showing the nation's energy infrastructure and resources?
This new tool… available around the clock on the EIA website… allows industry… energy analysts… government decision makers and the public to better see and understand the potential impact of a storm.
Every year… hurricanes and other extreme weather events threaten life and property. Hurricanes and tropical storms also affect the nation's energy infrastructure… especially when storm paths traverse offshore oil and natural gas production platforms and pipelines in the Gulf of Mexico… coastal refineries… processing plants… power plants and energy import and export sites.
The new maps are available at EIA's Energy site at http://www.eia.gov/special/disruptions/
Take a look! Take care and have a wonderful start to your week!
