Abstract : This handbook is a ready-reference decision-making aid for commanding officers or other individuals responsible for the safety of ships facing a hurricane threat. Guidance on assessing a hurricane threat and choosing appropriate countermeasures at specific North Atlantic ports is provided in Sections II-onward. However, the Handbook is not exclusively dedicated to ships at these ports, and the general guidance of Section I will assist ships at other ports or at sea. (Author)
