Connect up and see!  ;-)

"firenet.us" port 23 is a full feed.  Last I recall it had river
gauges (4-5000 of them), METAR weather stations, CMAN weather
stations, ocean buoys, fire objects for active fires around the U.S.
including acres and percentage contained, quakes down to 0.1
magnitude, probably more stuff that I'm forgetting.

It also had a full INET feed so you get the above objects plus the
main feeds.  You can also filter based on range, objects desired,
etc like you can for the INET feeds.  It's the "sea of blue" but
just moved to a new set of servers.

I send quakes only down to magnitude 3.0 to INET, but Firenet gets
them all.

You might try "firenet.us" ports:  2023  10151  10152  14580

I don't know what the current state of the servers are or which
ports are supported, but those are some of the ports I have defined
in Xastir and have used before.  I'm hooked to port 14580 right now
with "m/800 t/m" as my filter string.
