Storm map predicts disasters for several months ahead. This will allow you to evacuate people who may be in danger in advance.
The US National Hurricane Center has unveiled a new tool that can predict possible tropical storms in a few months. They can cause flooding along the Atlantic coast and the Gulf of Mexico.
Colored storm maps will perform the same precautionary function as traditional hurricane maps. Researchers note that they will highlight red areas that may be flooded and show “the expected height of the storm surge.” The new tool is intended to warn the population and authorities about potential dangers.
“The easiest way is to quickly transfer such information to the area using graphics,” said Michael Brennan, head of the hurricane specialists at the Hurricane Center in Miami.
Hurricane storm surge is a deadly threat that causes dangerous floods in communities along the US coast. The Sandy superstorm, which was a mild hurricane before landfall in 2012, created a storm surge that caused billions of dollars in damage along the densely populated shores of New York and New Jersey.
