HURREVAC (short for Hurricane Evacuation) is a storm tracking and decision support tool. The software combines live feeds of tropical cyclone forecast information with data from various state Hurricane Evacuation Studies (HES) to assist the local emergency manager in making evacuation decisions based on the timing and potential severity of storm effects such as wind and storm surge.
Software access is restricted to officials in government emergency management. As a general rule, you are eligible to use the HURREVAC program if you are affiliated with:
- emergency management for a county, parish or locality in hurricane-prone U.S. states and territories including, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Guam, CNMI, and American Samoa,
- state, territory, or tribal emergency management agency (EMA),
- NOAA and National Weather Service offices.
The software is distributed free-of-charge to eligible users who register here.
