Quote: The track puts them on guard. The upgrade puts them into ready mode and issuance of watches, warnings etc.
Playing devils advocate and trying to learn something: Is the NHC a global group? The name, National Hurricane Center, in my mind tells me it's an American organization. Why would another country care what we do? Wouldn't they have their equivalent to name or not name a storm? Unless my goegraphy is screwy and they are a part of us....
First of all, many of the small islands rely on the NHC on forcasting in order to prepare because they do not have the infastructure to do this themselves (when you are poor feeding your people is much more important than building models to track hurricanes)
So yes the government of the Caribbean islands to look to the Nhc for their forcast and whether its time to get ready.
