The IEM web farm set a milestone for daily web traffic on Saturday 15 April with just over 696 million requests. The news item links to a webalizer report which shows a smaller total due to a small bug with how it computes 'daily' values. Thankfully, it had been a while since hitting a new milestone. Much of this current surge in traffic is due to an updated Android app (MyRadar) that utilizes the IEM NEXRAD Time Map Service. Here is a listing of previous milestones set:
