This spring, we’ve seen powerful tornadoes touch down in several states across the nation. Stunning viral images on social media of recent events, such as the May 7 twister in Wray, Colorado, which reached peak winds of 130 mph, are reminders from Mother Nature that no community is invulnerable to extreme weather.
NOAA's Historical Hurricane Tracks is a free online tool that allows users to track historic hurricane tracks. The site, developed by the NOAA Office for Coastal Management in partnership with NOAA's National Hurricane Center and National Centers for Environmental Information, offers data and information on coastal county hurricane strikes through 2012. It also provides links to detailed reports on the life histories and effects of U.S. tropical cyclones since 1958, with additional U.S. storm paths traced as far back as 1851. The site contains global hurricane data from as far back as 1842.
