Abstract : This handbook is a ready-reference decision-making aid for commanding officers and other personnel 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 the port evaluations in Sections II-onward. The handbook is not directed exclusively to ships at these ports, however, and the general guidance in Section I will assist ships at other ports or at sea. This volume includes: New Orleans, Louisiana; Port Arthur, Texas; Tampa, Florida; Boston, Massachusetts, and New York, New York.
