HURREVAC (short for Hurricane Evacuation) is a storm tracking and decision support tool. The software combines live feeds of tropical cyclone forecast information with data from various state Hurricane Evacuation Studies (HES) to assist the local emergency manager in making evacuation decisions based on the timing and potential severity of storm effects such as wind and storm surge.
This training and webinar series provides an overview on what is new in HURREVAC, insights into the current season, and a comprehensive understanding of the program’s utility to emergency managers.
Topics in the series include
- Overview of HURREVAC
- Tools for wind forecasts
- Tools to support evacuation decisions Storm surge tools and other features to support hurricane response and decision making related to water hazards
- Creating exercise storms and using HURREVAC to answer scenario-based questions
