Expand beyond Northern New York#4

At the core of Closures, the app is able to operate automatically because it crawls local news channel sites and injects any closings or delays into the api to be able to be parsed and displayed onto the app.

I’ve been able to take the idea of writing code that crawls my local news channel station for closings and delays.

Now, I have successfully been able to include several other news stations by crawling their data as well. I’m able to do this by cross referencing zip codes from within 30 miles of that particular news station to a database of over the 42,000 zip codes within the United States to find the city and state where a particular organization has a closing or delay.
