The Next-48 Dashboard - sample of the resources included.

Your State Disaster Watch Dashboard   - Made for EDEN by Tom Priddy, University of Kentucky agricultural meteorologist and EDEN Point of Contact.  By organizing information from the National Weather Service, the Storm Prediction Center, the Geological Survey, CDC and several other sources, this dashboard lets you see what's happening now and for the next 48 hours in your state. 

The "Next 48" national dashboard is at

The "Next 48" dashboard for Louisiana is at  

The EDEN-Louisiana page with a link to the "Next 48" for Louisiana is at:  

We still need to work on the "buttons" for these transfers, but they work.  Click the forecast strip on the EDEN-LA page to get to the "Next 48 Louisiana" dashboard; click the state icon at the top of that page to get back to the EDEN-LA page.

Would you'd like the Next 48 for YOUR state to be a link on your EDEN state page?  .

Use the “State Information” drop down menu to view your state's EDEN page. If you want the dashboard added, please email Pat Skinner.

The dashboard draws in information from many sources, including those listed below.
