In keeping with our goal of emergency climate preparedness, the University of Hawai‘i (UH) system and the National Weather Service present updated information from the NOAA Central Pacific Hurricane Center regarding its 2017 Hurricane Outlook for the Central Pacific Basin. Five to eight tropical cyclones are projected in the Central Pacific roughly between June 1 and November 30. Hurricanes typically develop within this broad timeframe, and the Hawaiian islands usually have several days notice in which to respond. But during this time adverse weather events can occur without warning. When a threat of a severe storm occurs, university officials will work in tandem with NOAA to provide guidance and safety information, including the option to suspend UH system operations and limit travel within the affected areas.
Take some time to read this UH News story providing links to resources we encourage you to share with your campus community.
Please spread the word and help keep our University of Hawai‘i ‘ohana prepared and safe.
