How To Track A Hurricane

The National Hurricane Center, which is part of the National Weather Service and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, tracks tropical storms and hurricanes.

Hurricane watches and warnings are issued when the storms get close to the U.S. You can track the progress of storms by listening to the coordinates given by your television meteorologists. Or you can regularly check on for the latest longitude and latitude locations issued by the National Hurricane Center.
