NOAA, Hurricanoes, and Google Maps

So, I was getting a little annoyed at the fact that NOAA's maps don't show cities, so you can't really tell which areas will be hit. So, I examined the Google Maps API, got a key, wrote a bunch of nasty regexen, and threw this together. (You can use it to track any hurricane NOAA has its eye on—try plugging in a forecast for Tropical Storm Phillipe, for example.)

Sometimes, being a programmer is awesome.
