Basic Details
Name NHC and FDEM Tropical Related News
PreRequisite NONE Conveying threats from storm surge, wind, rainfall, and tornadoes ahead of landfalling tropical storms and hurricanes can be quite challenging. Within the past few years, the NWS and NHC have introduced new Storm Surge Watches and Warnings, Key Messages, and timing graphics to assist emergency managers and the public in understanding the risk these storms pose. During this kick-off webinar of Tropical Topics Week, Kevin Guthrie (Director, Florida Division of Emergency Management), and Ken Graham (Director, National Hurricane Center) will discuss successes and lessons learned from the record-setting 2020 hurricane season. In addition, FDEM and NHC representatives will provide the latest news and updates on their respective agencies ahead of the 2021 hurricane season.
