I will reiterate, my forecasts are based on the available information at the time of analysis, and are only as accurate as the information analyzed and the solutions provided.

Good day all!

I have recently in my research, come across updated hurricane preparedness literature, which is very informative and could definitely help, IF you have to deal with a hurricane threat.  This will be posted at the end of this tutorial.  Just click on the graphic to access it.  Any feedback on this newer information would be appreciated.

This tutorial will consist of a series of short videos produced by the NHC in Miami, FL.  The videos are a little older and cover some past seasons / storms, and probably contain some past NHC employees.  There are a total of 7 videos from the NHC, one from DHS, and three from Lowes home improvement.  The videos from the NHC will briefly cover topics such as overview of a hurricane, storm surge, wind, etc.  This will be followed by videos showing how to board up your windows in preparation for the arrival of hurricane force winds.  Even though hurricane season seems far enough off, I cannot stress enough, to begin putting the proper materials together far enough ahead of time in order to prepare when the time comes.  This will help avoid any cost increase and shortage of supplies as a storm threatens, and everybody decides at one time they need materials.  The videos from the NHC do not necessarily go through preparation procedures, however contain good information regarding various aspects of hurricane threats.

The video on preparing your windows will show you various ways to accomplish boarding up.  JUST REMEMBER…DO THIS ON THE OUTSIDE OF YOUR HOME!

In the event you are placed under a Hurricane Watch / Warning…
DO NOT TAPE YOUR WINDOWS!  Taping windows WILL NOT KEEP THE WIND OUT.  PLEASE, install plywood shutters, metal shutters or polycarbonate panels.  These items are used vice taping, to try and prevent windows from being shattered.  Once your windows shatter, wind will enter your home, and most likely cause your roof to come off, causing your home to collapse around you!

The following video should give you a fairly decent idea on how to install plywood shutters, polycarbonate panels, and metal shutters.  Minimum thickness should be 5/8 inch plywood, and installed on the exterior of your dwelling.

I am a Tropical Forecast meteorologist, providing hurricane forecasts during the Atlantic Hurricane Season. I retired from the U.S. Coast Guard in July of 2001. Meteorology became my passion in high school, and I have continued my educational background in meteorology since 1996, when I undertook the study of Tropical Meteorology. While working toward my degree, I had to unexpectedly withdraw from college due to my oldest sons medical reasons. I do however, meet the educational criteria of the AMS to be recognized as a meteorologist. Studies include, but are not limited to the Navy Aerographers Mate course, Naval METOC meteorology course, Meteorology 2010 Sophomore level course while attending St. Petersburg College, Clearwater, FL., Basic Forecasting course for operational meteorologists from Rapid WX, meteorology institute, a four month meteorological internship, and extensive research on numerous meteorological topics such as the MJO, NAO, satellite imagery interpretation, etc.

I have been forecasting Tropical Weather (Tropical Storms and Hurricanes) since 1996, with my main client being three different Coast Guard Commands.
