Hurricane Awareness Tour - Washington, DC

Date

Tuesday, May 9, 2017 - 2:00pm to 4:30pm

Event Information

For the first time ever, four Hurricane Hunter aircraft will be visiting Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA) for a public event. Hurricane experts from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the U.S. Air Force will visit to talk with our community to raise awareness of our local threats from tropical cyclones, and the danger of being caught without a personal hurricane plan.

Hurricane Hunter pilots and crew from NOAA and USAF, as well as Dr. Rick Knabb (Director of the National Hurricane Center/NHC), NHC hurricane specialists, and meteorologists from our local NWS forecast office will all be on hand to educate residents of vulnerable communities about hurricane preparedness, and will be available for interviews.
