Track Your Community's Hurricane History With NOAA Website

On the Historical Hurricane Tracks website, from National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), users can enter their zip code that brings up a map of the location that has more than 150 years of Atlantic hurricane tracking data. This data includes cyclone data, a history of cyclones, dating back to 1958 and global hurricane data dating back to 1842. Additionally, NOAA says the site provides insight to U.S. populations and infrastructures at risk for hurricanes.
