We sincerely hope that this Disaster Alert Blog will be used very rarely. It allows the IFA to post information about disasters affecting forestry across the state - major forest fires, wind storms, tornadoes, etc. Each disaster will have its own posting and status will be added as comments to the post. This means that only this website's administrators will be allowed to post comments to this blog, while everyone will be able to read all posts and comments. Otherwise, the status updates for each disaster might get buried in user comments.
