Abstract

The NOAA National Hurricane Center (NHC) publishes advisory bulletins with named storm conditions and expectations, see [1]. We have also downloaded shapefiles for eighty-four 5-day forecasts (published from August 30 to September 11) of track line, predicted points, ensemble forecasts envelope, and affected shoreline where applicable [2]. NOAA also publishes the best track for major storms [3]. The "best track" is a smoothed version of the advisories track. Web services are also provided by NHC for the advisory points and lines [4] [5]. Another user has constructed the Irma track (shapefile) from the NHC advisory bulletins [6].

FEMA also posts windfield data, including peak wind gust and contours [7].
See FEMA disaster webpage [8] for map and list of counties receiving disaster declarations (map pdf available for download from this page)
