NOAA Extreme Weather Information Sheets (NEWIS)
NOAA Extreme Weather Information Sheets (NEWIS) contain contact information for local, regional, and national organizations that can provide aid and information during tropical storms, hurricanes, and other extreme coastal events. NCEI created these sheets to help residents of coastal states and the two US territories that are particularly at risk from tropical storms and hurricanes.
