Hurricane Information

NOAA (National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration) provides two excellent services for keeping residents informed as to hurricanes and tropical disturbances.

You can receive email alerts and view near-real-time satellite images.

One great service is their email alerts. Forecasts, predictions and emergencies are sent out automatically via email. You can subscribe to this service by going to http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/signup.shtml.

Another great service is the satellite imaging. You can actually watch the satellite view of the storms. Additionally, you can select overlays so that direction, wind speed, pressure, storm surge and even predictions are "laid over" the storm for easy understanding. You can view this satellite service at http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/satellite.shtml.

These services are the fastest and most direct means available for providing information on storms.
