National hurricane conference encourages preparation
Today marks the fourth and final day of the National Hurricane Conference in Orlando leaving attendees with one last day for workshops and training sessions about the upcoming hurricane season. Though this year’s conference hasn’t released exact predictions about the 2012 season – and they won’t be doing so for at least another week – audiences were able to get valuable information about hurricane preparation. Florida’s 89.1, WUFT-FM’s Sanika Dange spoke to University of Florida meteorologist Jeff Huffman – who attended two days of the conference this week – to discuss some of the information they both learned on their trip down to Orlando.
