Hurricane Chasing Tips

Good day everyone,

With Hurricane Season 2006 now upon us, and activity starting to heat up, I encourage anyone, especially those new, to fully understand what is involved in interception of a tropical system (this includes Pacific Typhoons as well).

The link to such a handy information source is below...

Tropical cyclones around the world (same storm - 74 MPH and up - different name)!

Hurricane: North Atlantic, East and Central Pacific.
Typhoon: West Pacific.
Cyclone: South Pacific, Indian Ocean, Australia, and South Atlantic (rare!)
Willy-Willy: Austrailia

Thanks, and Good Luck!

Actually Willy-Willy is the name used in Australia for 'Dust Devils'
they are very common west of the Great Dividing Range during
Spring and Summer
