After a hurricane has formed, the National Weather Service will issue a Hurricane Watch if hurricane conditions are possible in your area within forty-eight hours.
This is a good time to restock any emergency supplies, and review your emergency plan. Gather important documents – like the deed to your home and insurance policies – and pack up your pets, medicines, and other essential items and be prepared to evacuate if the orders are given.
Ocean Today is an interactive exhibit that plays short videos on ocean related themes.
Visitors can select from 150+ videos on topics ranging from deep-‐sea exploration, marine species, and restoration projects to hurricanes, oceans and human health, and
climate science and research. These videos are a free resource and are available on our website at oceantoday.noaa.gov.
