) Are you an official source of weather information for Ripley?
A) We are not an official source of information. There are many factors that go into how the data is determined and presented - for example: we have contracts, licenses, permission, general access, and/or agreements to use and show certain up-to-date information that comes from various stations in cities across the nation, including data from the National Weather Service; we then use our own proprietary methods to accurately display the data as close to the location as we possibly can. However, the data shown here should only be used for light informational and reference purposes and not to make critical decisions. We are of the opinion that you should not rely on any website or app in an actual weather emergency, even if the data is purported to be accurate and real-time. If the conditions will be (or is) posing a threat to safety and life, then you should rely on local news, authorities, and radio stations - you are urged to always contact your local officials for all emergency situations.
) How often is the data updated?
