10-16-2012-10-57-01-PMThis week at the National Weather Service is the “did you know” time of the year. Offices took the time to go through social media to inform the people about certain things that they need to know on a daily basis. This need to session starts with the establishment of the bureau back in the year 1870.

In the bureau’s early days, it was part of the Department of Agriculture before it was moved under the administration of the Department of Commerce in the year 1940. The Weather Bureau is under the management of the NOAA. For more information regarding this, go to the source.
