Don't miss the latest Ocean Today Hurricane Survival Guide video series. Being aware of the power of these destructive forces, and the science behind them, can help you stay safe this hurricane season. When the maximum sustained winds of a tropical storm reach 74 miles per hour, it's called a hurricane. Hurricane Season begins on June 1 and ends on November 30, but these powerful storms can occur before and after the official season. A hurricane can be an awesome and destructive force of nature. Be prepared.
It's almost that time of year — time for the International Coastal Cleanup (ICC)! This annual event, put on by the Ocean Conservancy and supported by the NOAA Marine Debris Program (MDP), works to bring people together from across the globe to clean up marine debris in their local communities. Last year's cleanup resulted in more than 18 million pounds of trash collected by over 504,000 volunteers covering almost 15,000 miles! NOAA staff will be participating at locations throughout the country — which location will you be at?
