NOAA scraps furloughs, citing Oklahoma and Missouri tornadoes
NOAA has canceled plans to furlough 12,000 workers due to sequestration after securing "an increase in flexibility" to handle its budget cuts, according to a memo sent to agency employees from acting NOAA Administrator Kathy Sullivan. "The events over the past week, including more devastating tornadoes tonight in Oklahoma and Missouri, remind us how important every single employee within NOAA is to the health, safety and well-being of this nation," Sullivan wrote in the memo.
