The National Hurricane Center's front page.
This week’s website of the week is The National Hurricane Center’s website, which serves as a tool and educational resource on hurricanes.
The site is a branch of The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s website. Visitors to the NHC’s front page will find a radar graphic of the latest tropical cyclones or disturbances and links to forecasts, data, tools, educational resources and archives of past storms.
By clicking on the sites “Educational Resources” tab, visitors have a choice to explore all sorts of topics having to do with hurricanes, from hurricane preparation tips and videos to the climatology science behind it. The NHC site even gives visitors a chance to take a virtual tour of their facilities by way of pictures and audio synced together.
Perhaps the most fascinating of resources available to anyone is the archives section. Here someone can access the current season’s tropical weather summary or a previous year’s rundown of tropical cyclone reports dating back to 1995.
