Hurricane Preparedness Part 1: Understanding Hurricane Hazards

The 2021 hurricane season is upon us.

In part one of our three-part series on hurricane preparedness, Melissa Huffman, Warning Coordination Meteorologist for the National Weather Service, shares her expert knowledge on common and not-so-common hurricane hazards and how to prepare for them.

Topics covered:

  • What to expect from this year’s season
  • How hurricanes are measured
  • Hazards that can impact you during and after a storm
  • How Hurricane Harvey’s unprecedented rainfall influenced social science initiatives at the National Weather Service
