“New National Hurricane Center warnings unveiled to give more detailed notice”

The Miami Herald-Tribune noted this week that “Following last year’s hurricane season, which broke Florida’s nearly 11-year streak without a hurricane making landfall here, a number of new warnings are being unveiled by the National Hurricane Center to better notify those in a storm’s path, the organization’s acting director said Wednesday at the annual Governor’s Hurricane Conference.” These warnings are expected to assist emergency managers in providing timely and appropriate information to people that may be affected by any tropical systems that pass through their local warning areas.  You can read more at http://www.heraldtribune.com/news/20170517/new-national-hurricane-center-warnings-unveiled-to-give-more-detailed-notice.
