Submitted by ianare
ianare (1132971) writes "Federal budget cuts are threatening to leave the U.S. without some critical satellites, and that could mean less accurate warnings about events like tornadoes and blizzards. In particular, officials at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration are concerned about satellites that orbit over the earth's poles rather than remaining over a fixed spot along the equator."
