Promoting hurricane preparedness
The public tours the WC-130J Super Hercules aircraft at the Jack Brooks Regional Airport, Beaumont, Texas, May 8, 2018, during the NOAA Gulf Coast Hurricane Awareness Tour.

NOAA's National Weather Service and National Hurricane Center has conducted the Hurricane Awareness Tour for more than 35 years; however, this is the fourth year the 53rd WRS has participated in all five stops of the awareness and preparedness event, which was in conjunction with National Hurricane Preparedness Week May 7-11, 2018.
