Allegany Hope’s weather reporting network continued to expand during the now concluding first winter weather event of the season, with over 5,000 views of one of our several Community News group Facebook page posts since the weekend.
We thank our readers for not only using this website for updates but using our group Facebook page to “Like,” “Share” and “Comment,” which allows more family and friends to be aware of hazards this winter and throughout the year.
Please consider “Joining” the Facebook page if you haven’t already done so.
Weather-Ready Nation AmbassadorTM
Allegany Hope is a Weather-Ready Nation AmbassadorTM and due to the county’s location being in or bordering three NYS forecast offices, Allegany Hope Weather Resources provides forecast and other information from National Weather Services stations at Buffalo, for Allegany County west, Binghamton for Steuben County east, and State College, Pa., for Potter and McKean counties in Pennsylvania, along with regional and national data.
One can “Join” the page by clicking on the link at the top right.
This provides greater opportunities to obtain more timely weather alerts in individual News Feed Notifications due to Facebook disseminating only a fraction of posts to regular Facebook pages. Also checking the main page during a weather event is important in making sure nothing is missed, particularly if traveling.
Allegany Hope not only posts to its own pages, but also cross-posts to several other Facebook pages around the county in order to get information to as many people as possible within minutes, making us the premier weather news reporting entity in the area.
Exclusive Weather Resources Page
We also publish an exclusive Weather Resources page on this website or at https://bit.ly/3YAlcPI, which provides links to nearly three dozen sites for all types of weather and emergency-related information for not only Allegany and adjoining counties, but for many locations throughout the nation.
Readers are able to post appropriate photographs and videos of storm-related events to the “Comment” section of posts, identifying times, locations and other pertinent information. Snowfall amounts also are helpful to others.
If you are aware of any additional community Facebook pages which allow rapid posting of weather information, please drop us a note at AlleganyHopeWNY@outlook.com with the Facebook address.
Thank you, again, for helping us in Building Healthy Communities Through Healthy Families.
