Hurricane season begins June 1! The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Climate Prediction Center has predicted a near normal hurricane season for 2012 with possibly 12 to 17 named storms (tropical storms or hurricanes), 5 to 8 hurricanes and 2 to 3 major hurricanes. So far there have been 6 named storms and one tropical depression. Major hurricanes are classified as categories 3, 4 or 5 with winds reaching 111mph or higher.
With the Harris County Flood Control District’s hurricane tracker, you will be able to automatically track the progress of this year’s tropical storms and hurricanes on this website from any computer, as well as view live satellite feeds. You will be equipped with vital information that will help you get and stay prepared.
You can now view the tracker using your Smartphone! Scan the Quick Response (QR) code to the right using a QR code reader application and the camera on your mobile device.
In addition to the tracker, the Flood Control District also has released a new Hurricane Guide with information about hurricanes, their many destructive forces, preparedness tips and a checklist for creating a family emergency kit.
