BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - The WAFB weather team’s 30-minute special previewing the 2019 hurricane season aired Thursday, May 30 at 6:30 p.m. Watch the full special below.
The Atlantic hurricane season began Saturday, June 1. Before the season even began, Tropical Storm Andrea formed and dissipated in late May, nowhere near land. The season ends Nov. 30.
Along with looking forward, the award-winning WAFB Storm Team will take a look back. This year marks the 50th anniversary of Hurricane Camillle, the only Category 5 hurricane to ever strike Louisiana.
We will also give you a look at the newest tool available for tracking severe weather, Titan 9.
Most importantly, we encourage you to review your personal, family, and business hurricane response plans right now. We’ll tell you what you need to do to achieve that goal and become storm ready.
