This year, for the first time, the highly-popular NOAA Hurricane Awareness Tour (HAT) aligns with the presidentially-declared National Hurricane Preparedness Week
and the new#HurricaneStrong
public outreach campaign. U.S. Air Force Pilots, NOAA’s Aircraft Operations Center, and outreach teams are taking to the skies to drive public readiness beginning today in San Antonio with daily stops in four additional cities, including Galveston, New Orleans, Mobile, and Naples. This united effort is bringing together National Weather Service/National Hurricane Center, FEMA, The Weather Channel
, and the FLASH Partnership with emergency management officials, leaders, and volunteers to make this year’s five-city, whistle-stop tour, the best yet.
