The International Hurricane Research Center (IHRC) at Florida International University (FIU) and Museum of Discovery and Science (MODS) invite families across the nation, especially those in hurricane-prone regions, to explore this FREE virtual series, Eye of the Storm.

The series is sponsored by

Typically held on-site at MODS annually, the 2020 Eye of the Storm event will live as a virtual series, which allows the footprint to expand beyond South Florida to other states on the Gulf of Mexico and the eastern seaboard at risk to a hurricane landfall. Hurricane preparedness is vital for these areas, which have a deep history of hurricane landfalls, most recently Matthew (2016), Irma (2017), Harvey (2017), Michael (2018) and Dorian (2019). Hurricane season officially begins on June 1 and runs through November 30, peaking in late August through October.

The Eye of the Storm virtual series, which is FREE to all viewers, will provide valuable information and tips on how to safely prepare for hurricane season. Tune in for every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday throughout the month of June.
