James Franklin, Branch Chief, NOAA’s Hurricane Specialist Unit

One of the most damaging aspects of hurricanes is not the storm itself — it is what happens afterwards. Both Hurricane Katrina and Superstorm Sandy showed communities were not prepared for the storm surges and flooding. This hurricane season, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration is rolling out new tools to improve forecasts and communication. James Franklin is the branch chief in NOAA’s hurricane specialist unit. He joined Tom Temin and Emily Kopp on the Federal Drive from the National Hurricane Center.
