"Many intense hurricanes in the last five years have caused tremendous damage to the the Gulf Coast and eastern US, so interest in keeping a constant eye on tropical storms has definitely increased. Last August, TUAW covered AccuWeather's tropical storm tracker for iPhone. While this information is part of the overall weather coverage available from AccuWeather, there's a recently updated iPhone app that is focused solely at hurricane watchers."
I've never really quite understood the need to drive towards a hurricane or tornado, although I do enjoy the video feeds when the reporter is standing at about a 45 degree angle in order to stay in the shot. If you are interested in getting current as well as historical data about hurricanes, and you want to be ready when the 2009 hurricane season officially kicks off on June 1st, this app might be worth checking out.
