Some UIX advice: Only Sandy is listed as a current storm, so that should be loaded by default instead of showing an empty map.

I'm glad I read this post; I saw no storms load and assumed the site wasn't working for me! The link in the nav bar (which I now know to be a link) looked to me like it was just saying what it was (supposed to be) displaying. So I closed it. Then I read the above post and tried it again....

Another note: The icon for the current position should not be the same as the icons in the forecast track. If you turn off the 'Forecast Error' track it's impossible to tell the storm's current position.

That sounds like good advice. I'll go ahead and implement. Thanks!
