Flhurricane.com Site Usage Tips


1. Which browser you use is important. Flhurricane was designed using the Firefox 2.0 browser, but also tested with Internet Explorer 6.0 and 7 and Safari.

2. I suggest using a screen resolution of at least 800x600 and higher. Consult your operating system manual or online help as to how to do this.

3. Try out the Current Storm Spotlight and Printer-Ready pages (when available).


This site was designed for ourselves to use as well, and you may or may not like our style. Other websites with different styles can be found on the Links page.


Using "Important weather statements for Central Florida and tropical disturbance affected areas. (Newest on top. - Click Here to Retry if incomplete)" Link: On the main news page. All these statements are in real-time and are on CFHC as soon as the Weather Service puts them out so it is constantly checking for updates. Thus, from time to time, you may need to click on the "Click here to retry if incomplete" link to get the latest information. Also, during high peak times, it might not show up at all, so you will need to click on retry to get the information. Once you click on a statement and it opens up for you to read, you can click on the statement header again and it will close back up.


Many links on the page open up other pages in a new window, which is sometimes confusing if you are new to computing. If you can't hit the "back" button after clicking on something then there is a good chance you have clicked on one of these links that open up new windows. Use the task bar (or switcher) to find the other windows. We did it this way because we have found it the best way to get various information quickly without having to wait for everything while also allowing you to stay on the current page for easy reference. This design decision will not change.


Remember, this site is constantly under change, and things could be broken, if you notice something wrong let us know. If you have any suggestions or questions regarding the site, or this help page, Write Us!.


Many new pages on the site are "wiki enabled", meaning you can modify the content of the page if you find something useful or similar to that. For example, you can edit this very page.
