H-Hour does not directly correlate with the passage of actual time, but instead is an estimate of a hurricane’s approach and may change several times (both backwards and forwards) during the life of a storm . Negative H-Hours (ex. H-32) refer to the time period during which a hurricane approaches an area where it is predicted to make landfall . “H+0” or “H-0” indicate the time which tropical force winds (40 to 70 mph) reach the coast of the impacted area. “H+0” is not when the hurricane’s eye reaches the coast. That event generally follows a few to several hours after “H+0.” Activation: Activation Response Systems Strike Team Activation: Alerts will go out when a hurricane has the potential to impact Louisiana.
