Hurricane Forecasting and the Tools You Can Use
Speaker: Dan Brown, senior hurricane specialist/warning coordinator meteorologist, National Hurricane Center, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration
Know and understand hurricane forecasting tools that can help you assess the risk to your marina. In this webinar, learn more about intensity and timing forecasts, the cone of probability, and other maps and tools that can help you make the best decision for your marina or boatyard.
Weathering the Storm is an exclusive conference designed to prepare you and your marina from the forces of mother nature. We have gathered ten of the best industry experts to share their invaluable knowledge. This one day conference, followed by a one day marina study tour, will give you the education and confidence to create an effective hurricane plan and a stronger marina.
The Marina Study Tour will bring you to marinas in and around Miami that were affected by hurricanes. This tour will show you possible hurricane damage, but more importantly, it will show you how marinas overcame that damage and improved their overall marina.
IMI will host a three-month webinar series on hurricane-related topics, including hurricane forecasting and the tools you can use, what contributed to the success of the Southeast Florida marinas during hurricane Irma, and essentials to include in your Hurricane recovery plan. These webinars will be held the first Wednesday of each month, beginning on August 1, 2018 at noon EST. These webinars are free to Weathering the Storm Conference attendees.
