Quick Fact

Daily Weather and Disaster News

Launch Weather Wall

Weather phenomena can rapidly evolve into extreme events with severe impacts. In 2011, PDC launched the Weather Wall, a blog-based web page that provides weather and hazards information to disaster managers and the public. Weather Wall products are generated using data from the most trusted organizations in the world, including NOAA’s National Weather Service/Tropical Prediction Center/National Hurricane Center and the Naval Pacific Meteorology and Oceanography Center/Joint Typhoon Warning Center.

Tropical Cyclone Activity
The Weather Wall provides daily coverage of tropical cyclone activity around the globe. Tropical Cyclone Activity Reports are posted daily, year-round, for the Pacific Basin, including the Indian Ocean and adjacent seas. Tropical Cyclone Activity Reports for the Atlantic Basin, including the Caribbean Sea and Gulf of Mexico, are posted daily during the Atlantic hurricane season (June 1 through November 30).

Hazard Highlights
Each Thursday Hazard Highlights, a weekly summary of hazard events worldwide, is published on Weather Wall. Hazard Highlights provides an overview of hazard events impacting communities around the world, including major droughts and floods, earthquakes, fires, storms, tropical cyclones, volcanic activity, and biomedical hazards.
