Track Hurricane Ike

Powered by hurricane-tracking software from Stormpulse.com.

How To Use:

There are some buttons on the upper right of the tracking graphic that can add information to the page.

  • Forecast models: That will show the expected track of each of the dozen or so hurricane-related forecast models.
  • Wind Probabilities: Allows you to see the chances of tropical storm and hurricane force wind speeds for each city.
Clicking on the "More" tab opens up even more options:
  • "Clouds" superimposes the latest satellite image.
  • "Ocean Buoys" shows the observation of buoys in the water. Great way to track the hurricane's strength as it's in open water.
You can also click and drag on the map to adjust it to wherever you'd like.

There's a zoom button in the top left to zoom the map in or out, and down in the information box, there's a left and right arrow that will allow to to see the exact conditions expected along the storm's forecasted path. If you click on the "historical track" button in the upper right corner, you can then use the arrows in the information box below to see the historical statistics as well.
