The NHC serves as a national forum to enhance emergency management policies and improve hurricane preparedness, response, recovery and mitigation. In addition, it allows federal, state and local officials to exchange ideas. The NHC switched to a virtual format after postponing its originally scheduled program in April 2020 in Orlando, Fla., due to the novel coronavirus. The Atlantic hurricane season runs from June 1 through Nov. 30.
