“These are the satellites that provide data to models that allow the very accurate modeling of storms. These satellites give us the ability to track and predict where storms will go and what damage they may cause. These are key to our ability to issue weather warnings that save lives and property. Remember Hurricane Sandy? There was horrible loss of property, but due to very accurate warnings massive loss of life was avoided. Without the polar orbiting satellites all predictions would have had Sandy estimated to staying out at sea. Thanks to the satellites we knew it was turning west and were able to act on warnings.”
