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. Use the databases below to search for phone numbers and websites.

Printable Sheets

PDF versions of the 22 NOAA Extreme Weather Information Sheets are available for coastal sections of Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Texas, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

NCEI annually verifies contacts, phone numbers, and websites listed on NEWIS Sheets, and continues to monitor and update this information throughout the hurricane season.
