Editorial: WDAM Weather Advances

Surveys show that one of the most important reasons people watch local news is for weather information. 
In our continuing effort to better serve our viewing public, WDAM has for some time now been investing more time, people, effort, money and technology to bring you enhanced weather coverage. 
In the past few days you’ve seen glimpses of our new Titan Radar System that will take you inside the storm when inclement weather arises in ways you’ve probably not seen before. We are in the process of installing weather cameras and stations in Forrest, Lamar, Marion and Jones counties so you can get up to the minute video and weather data as it moves through our area. We have pinpoint weather radar on our Web site. We also have more well-trained weather personnel on staff than ever before. We now have weather alerts you can sign up for on your computer or handheld. We have an in-studio weather cam so you can see our weather team doing their work and keep constantly up-to-date on our Web site when weather threatens. We have a Hurrican Tracking section on the Web site as well.
With Hurricane season right here upon us - not to mention all the tornado activity we’ve seen lately - it is more important than ever that you be able to depend on Seven on Your Side Weather 24/7. 
That’s our goal and the best is yet to come. Stay tuned for even further progress. 
I’m Jim Cameron…let us hear from you.
