The roof is on fire

Massachusetts-based weather startup Understory whose real-time, rooftop sensors detect how weather systems are impacting life on the ground, has raised nearly $7.5 million in new funding to grow its network of weather stations and open a new location in Madison, Wisconsin. Worth Noting: Understory currently has 50 sensors in three cities; Somerville, Dallas, and Kansas City. Bottom Line: AmFam is a client.
