Status bars on the
main screen indicate the current database, update status, storm name, latest storm
information and "base location" forecast impact details (summary and detailed).
A user can define a "base location" and the system will automatically
display the forecast conditions for that location when the system is first started or
whenever new data arrives. The user can also setup certain "trigger"
criteria that will cause automatic EMail messages to be sent informing the recipients of
the forecasted conditions (Email capabilities are in HURRTRAK EM and RM Pro only).
