The Hurricane Tracker
Hurricane season begins June 1! The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Climate Prediction Center has predicted a slower than usual 2014 hurricane season because of an expected El Niño system. NOAA has predicted as many as 8 to 13 named storms (tropical storms), of which 3 to 6 will become hurricanes, and 1 to 2 will become major hurricanes.
Major hurricanes are classified as categories 3, 4 or 5, with winds reaching 111 mph or higher. The historical 30-year average for named storms is 12.
With the Harris County Flood Control District’s Hurricane Tracker, you can track a current storm, view evacuation routes and contraflow maps, view live satellite feeds, and much more – from any mobile device. This vital information will help you get and stay prepared!
