ABSTRACT

National Hurricane Operations Plan [1989]   [open pdf - 7MB]

"The tropical cyclone warning service is an interdepartmental effort to provide the United States and designated international recipients with forecasts, warnings, and assessments concerning tropical and subtropical weather systems. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration of the Department of Commerce is responsible for providing forecasts and warnings for the Atlantic and Eastern and Central Pacific Oceans while the Department of Defense provides the same for the Western Pacific and Indian Ocean (see Figure 1-1.) [...] This plan provides the basis for implementing agreements of the Department of Commerce, Department of Defense, and the Department of Transportation reached at the annual Interdepartmental Hurricane Conference (combined Atlantic and Eastern Pacific)."
