Hurricane awareness

Capt. Kelly Soich, 53rd Weather Reconnaissance Squadron navigator, answers grade school students’ questions during the Caribbean Hurricane Awareness Tour April 24, 2015. More than 500 students were informed how the Hurricane Hunters use the WC-130J to collect vital weather data for the National Hurricane Center in Miami, which improves their forecasts. About 50 students from Saba made an hour ferry ride to attend the event designed to promote hurricane awareness and preparedness in the Caribbean region. The outreach program began in the 1970's and is a joint effort between National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's National Hurricane Center and the 403rd Wing's 53rd Weather Reconnaissance Squadron.
