Over the past two years, the National Weather Service, the agency tasked with issuing life-saving severe weather watches and warnings across the country — has had a bevy of technical glitches that have severely impeded its operations. The NWS says these incidents, which have ranged from the apparent issuance of a massive and false flood watch for all points east of Lake Michigan and north of Florida, to letting a tornado go essentially unwarned due to failures of automated systems, have the attention of the agency's leadership. The latest problem occurred on Monday, when an unidentified Android app made too many data requests from the NWS Internet Dissemination System, known as NIDS, causing the system to temporarily shut down.
