Course Title: L310 Hurricane Readiness for Inland Communities

Course Description:

In 1972, the remnants of Hurricane Agnes dropped over 19 inches of rain in Pennsylvania, leading to devastating flooding in parts of the commonwealth. Thirty-nine years later, in 2011, the remnants of both Hurricane Irene and Tropical Storm Lee landed a 1-2 punch on the Keystone State, resulting in additional catastrophic inland flooding. This 1-day course is an introduction to the National Weather Service forecast procedures and products dealing with the inland hazards of Hurricanes, Tropical Storms, Depressions and remnant systems. Topics include hurricane hazards, flood observation and forecast products, and lessons learned from the evacuation decision-making process. There will also be a brief tutorial on the inland-related products and tools available in the new web-based Hurrevac (HVX) tool.

Target Audience: This course is intended for emergency managers responsible for developing or revising hurricane and flooding operations plans and procedures for communities threatened by hurricanes and their remnants.
