About this project
This is an application to monitor wind speed in Chicago's Tenth Ward surrounding KCBX Terminals, a bulk freight facility which maintains and transports large piles of petroleum coke ("petcoke"). Residents have been told by the Chicago Department of Public Health to be mindful of windy days, as the petcoke dust becomes airborne and can aggravate respiratory conditions. The app will be collecting data on wind speed and air quality and alerting residents via SMS when potentially hazardous conditions exist.
