National Hurricane Center: Hurricane Webinar 2017
A free webinar on hurricanes will be offered to grades 4, 5, and 6 on May 10 at 10:30 a.m. EDT (9:30 a.m. CDT). This webinar is part of the 2016 Hurricane Preparedness Week and the NOAA Hurricane Awareness Tour. The webinar will be broadcast live from the Raleigh, NC stop of the Hurricane Awareness Tour.
The 2017 Hurricane Webinars for 4th through 6th grade classes are presented by the Hurricanes: Science and Society (HSS) team at the University of Rhode Island's Graduate School of Oceanography (URIO/GSO) in partnership with the NOAA National Hurricane Center (NHC) and the NOAA Aircraft Operations Center (AOC). The purpose of the Hurricane Webinars is to raise awareness about hurricanes in advance of the 2017 North Atlantic hurricane season.
