NOAA's National Ocean Service (NOS) brings a wealth of coastal science, management, and operational expertise to aid communities impacted by hurricanes in their recovery. NOAA’s Disaster Response Center (DRC) enhances capacity to prepare for and respond to disasters.
Immediately following a hurricane, the Office of Coast Survey provides emergency hydrographic services for affected port areas. After a hurricane, the Office of Response and Restoration (OR&R) provides scientific support to hazardous materials response efforts in coastal areas. NOAA's Digital Coastal is an online access point for much of NOAA's data and tools that aid in hurricane recovery such as LIDAR data, coastal socio-economic and land use change data, Sea Level Rise and Coastal Flooding Impacts Viewer, and Environmental Sensitivity Index (ESI) maps.
The Office for Coastal Management provides assistance in long-term recovery planning in areas impacted by a hurricane. The Historical Hurricane Tracks tool allows users to track local historical storm activity, review specific storm tracks, and obtain information about a particular storm's landfall.

The only difference between a hurricane, a cyclone, and a typhoon is the location where the storm occurs. The DRC brings together NOAA-wide resources to prepare federal, state, and local decision makers for a variety of hazards and threats. Collected real-time environmental information helps coastal authorities prepare for, mitigate, and respond to storm tides and coastal flooding. Following a hurricane, the Office for Coastal Management provides the satellite and aerial images needed to generate maps that help officials understand the long-term effects of the hurricane. The following is a compilation of NOS's roles and responsibilities related to preparedness, response, and recovery before, during, and after a hurricane. The DRC hosts trainings, drills, and workshops to help Gulf communities prepare for storms while enhancing NOAA’s coordination and emergency planning to conduct an organized and effective response.

This is no time to look back and lay blame or promote praise in regard to Hurricane Katrina.
