Harris County Flood Control District's Hurricane Tracker

Hurricane season begins June 1! The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Climate Prediction Center has predicted a slower than usual 2014 hurricane season because of an expected El Niño system. NOAA has predicted as many as 8 to 13 named storms (tropical storms), of which 3 to 6 will become hurricanes, and 1 to 2 will become major hurricanes.

Major hurricanes are classified as categories 3, 4 or 5, with winds reaching 111 mph or higher. The historical 30-year average for named storms is 12.

With the Harris County Flood Control District’s new Hurricane Tracker mobilewebsite, you will be able to track a current storm, view evacuation routes and contraflow maps, view live satellite feeds, and much more – from any mobile device. This vital information will help you get and stay prepared!

Scan the Quick Response (QR) code to the right using a QR code reader application and the camera on your mobile device.

In addition to the tracker, the Flood Control District offers an updated Hurricane Guide with information about hurricanes, their many destructive forces, preparedness tips and a checklist for creating a family emergency kit.
