Upcoming Event: NOAA HURRICANE AWARENESS TOUR
THE CAROLINA FOREST CIVIC ASSOCIATION WORKING WITH HORRY COUNTY INVITE ALL TO:
NOAA HURRICANE AWARENESS TOUR TO VISIT MYRTLE BEACH, SC
Conway, South Carolina – The 2015 Hurricane Awareness Tour will take place on Wednesday, May 6, 2015, at the Myrtle Beach International Airport’s General Aviation Terminal, located at 1250 Airdrome Avenue in Myrtle Beach near Market Commons. Parking signs will be located around the terminal to assist visitors.
NOAA hurricane experts will visit five U.S. East Coast cities and one city in Canada, flying aboard a USAF Reserve WC-130J hurricane hunter aircraft along with the NOAA G-IV aircraft to raise awareness of the impacts from tropical cyclones threats and the danger of being caught without a personal hurricane plan.
The event will host school children from Horry, Georgetown, and Williamsburg Counties and will be open to the general public from 2:30 p.m. to 5 p.m. before they fly off to the next city, which is St. Augustine, Florida.
The tour will include the WC-130J, which is one of ten such aircraft used by the U.S. Air Force Reservists from the 53rd Weather Reconnaissance Squadron, 403rd Wing, located at Keesler AFB in Biloxi, Miss. Military air crews fly directly into the core of tropical cyclones to gather data that are critical for forecasting the tropical cyclone’s intensity and landfall.
The NOAA G-IV is part of the agency's fleet of highly specialized research and operational aircraft operated, managed and maintained by the NOAA Office of Marine and Aviation Operations and based at MacDill AFB in Tampa, Fla. It flies at high altitude around and ahead of the tropical cyclone, gathering critical data to go into the hurricane forecast models.
National Hurricane Center Director Dr. Rick Knabb, hurricane specialists Daniel Brown and John Cangialosi, storm surge team leader Jamie Rhome, the USAF hurricane hunter crew members and the NOAA aircraft crew members will be on hand to educate students and residents of vulnerable communities about hurricane preparedness.
Staff from local emergency management offices, non-profit organizations such as the American Red Cross, personnel from the National Weather Service Wilmington office, and many other partners will be part of the event.
