As part of its efforts to build a Weather-Ready Nation, NOAA’s hurricane experts will tour five U.S. Gulf coastal cities to raise awareness about the importance of preparing for the upcoming hurricane season. The tour will include a U.S. Air Force Reserve WC-130J hurricane hunter aircraft and the NOAA G-IV aircraft, both of which are used in hurricane forecasting. The tour is partnering with the Federal Alliance for Safe Homes (FLASH) with the #HurricaneStrong campaign to reenergize and inspire hurricane readiness by increasing public awareness and action before the next storm strikes.
