Weather service shuts down website due to government shutdown

Posted: Updated:
ATLANTA (CBS ATLANTA) -

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has shut down its website due to the government shutdown. 

NOAA, which is a division of the Department of Commerce, runs the National Weather Service, which is responsible for the weather alerts you receive during bad weather.

NOAA's website reads: "Due to the Federal government shutdown, NOAA.gov and most associated web sites are unavailable."

Despite NOAA's main site being shut down, your weather alerts will continue to be issued.

Severe weather warnings, watches and tropical weather information for Metro Atlanta will continue to be sent.

Warnings and advisories for Metro Atlanta are issued by the National Weather Service in Peachtree City.  Watches are issued by the Storm Prediction Center in Norman, Oklahoma, and tropical weather alerts are issued by the National Hurricane Center in Miami, Florida.
