National Hurricane Center hosting ‘Hurricanes at Home’ webinars for students

With many people learning and working from home due to social distancing measures, the National Hurricane Center will host a series of webinars for students at home.

The series, called “Hurricanes at Home,” will teach 4th, 5th, and 6th grade students living in U.S. states and territories along the Gulf and Atlantic coasts about hurricanes over the next several weeks.

These webinars will focus on the job of a meteorologist, the weather hazards that come with hurricanes, and how meteorologists get you the weather information you need before a

Students can learn the basics of what it takes to become a meteorologist from the comfort of their own couch!

Webinars specific to Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama will be hosted on Tuesday, April 14 and Thursday, April 16 at 10 a.m. CDT.

The National Hurricane Center says only 500 participants will be accommodated for each webinar. Students should only register for one webinar provided for their region.
