The NHC presence on Twitter is a prototype to help decision-makers and the public receive notifications of the very latest on hazardous tropical weather systems. The addition of NHC's voice via Twitter services to the social stream will enhance the ability of NHC and its partners to achieve their missions by building situational awareness, and allow for a broader reach of information to the public that it serves.
A tweet will be sent whenever NHC issues:
- A public advisory regarding a tropical cyclone (TCP)
- A tropical cyclone update (TCU)
- A position estimate (TCE)
- A tropical weather outlook (TWO)
