Latest Tropical Updates

A multi-function page module that loads tropical weather data from the National Hurricane Center.

A Node.js script checks the NHC regularly during the hurricane season (June to November) for live weather events. If one or more storms are currently active in the Atlantic basin, it publishes the latest 5-Day warning graphic(s) and public alert(s) to a local directory for display on the website. A front-side JavaScript then detects these data and adds appropriate panels to the module.
