Description

This series analyzes the problems and failures of the National Hurricane Center in Miami. The center lacks funds and up-to-date instruments, and sometimes expensive equipment fails in severe weather conditions. The two hurricane hunter turboprop planes that belong to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration are frequently unavailable to track hurricanes because they are diverted to other jobs that have little or nothing to do with weather.
