Typhoon season primer, Part I supplemental: More preparation, reference material
Published: May 14, 2012
From Pacific Storm Tracker’s archives, summer 2011. Particularly for new folks who weren't on Okinawa during Typhoons Muifa in August and Songda in May, but also to reinforce what old Asia hands like me already know, here are some links to valuable resources, a much-more detailed guide to typhoon preparedness, frequently asked questions about what to do and not do during storms, especially why not to mess with the eye of a storm.
Part II of this series, coming in a few days, will deal with social networking, and how it can be a vital link to getting immediate information on tropical cyclones from official sources … and how the rumour mill can impede that flow of information thanks to unofficial sources who might have just a piece of the whole puzzle, but not all of it.
