Breaking: NHC Modifies Hurricane Warning Definition in Wake of Sandy

Following the criticism of the National Hurricane Center's handling of Hurricane Sandy and the non-issuance of hurricane warnings north of North Carolina, it has been decided that the NHC will now have more flexibility in their policy regarding the issuance of advisories.

"The main issue is: we want people to get ready for hurricane conditions, and that's why we are changing the definition of hurricane warning to be a little more inclusive of other things than just a hurricane," Chris Landsea, Science and Operations Officer at the National Hurricane Center

"Sandy was not ideal, and the way we handled it was not right. But we're fixing it,"

"We realize this was not satisfactory and we want to make it better for next year."
