Quote: 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.
Ok that was the first of all..where is the second?
Thanx y'all for the explanation. I didn't know the NHC was responsible for so much. Very kool. Now, it seems like to me whether the storm has a name or not wouldn't matter. If I was the ruler of a small country residing in the path of many storms that could be or become hurricanes all I'd need would be location, speed of movement and wind speed. Is the important thing that it has a name? Or that it is strong enough to be named?
What doesn't kill us only makes us stronger.
