Marco Rubio, Bill Nelson Team Up on Hurricane Forecasting
Floridas two U.S. senators -- Republican Marco Rubio and Democrat Bill Nelson -- teamed up on Thursday to unveil the the Hurricane Forecast Improvement Act of 2015 to codify the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administrations Hurricane Forecast Improvement Project, an effort to improve hurricane forecasting.
Americans along the east coast have unfortunately seen firsthand how devastating hurricanes can be, said Rubio. Providing more accurate tracking and intensity forecasts will allow people to better prepare for the safety of their families, homes, and businesses. The Hurricane Forecast Improvement Act is a common-sense approach that will advance these goals.
Ive seen countless hurricanes hit Florida during my time in public service; Ive seen the damage they can cause, said Nelson. And thats why we should do anything we can to help people better prepare for these storms in order to avoid the loss of life and property.
