Default New E.C. layout

Just noticed that environment Canada has updated their website. What do you think of the new layout for their weather warnings page (and the site in general)?

I agree, I like the new layout. If only they would stay on top of the warnings. I don't like the "better late than never" warnings they've been known for in the past (or lack of warnings all together), maybe this year they will be more accurate.....

Like the improvement to the warnings layout, but I am still trying to get used to the whole look and feel of the site. Lightning data is still not that useful (it needs to be updated more frequently!)... wish the radar would have other options for velocity, etc.

WayfaringStranger, I am not so sure they improved on the delayed warnings, lol. This evening, a severe thunderstorm warning popped up for Waterloo AFTER the storm had left the region. I know it takes a bit longer to get them out on the internet, but timing could be better.
